Golf in Windermere FL definitely has it's place in the local culture. Golf thrives in Florida for many reasons and of course Windermere is the best part of Florida. Not only are there some incredible golf courses within the city but there are some good options locally as well.
Windermere golf would not be the same without Isleworth and The Golden Bear Club in Keenes Pointe. When people mentally link Windermere and golf, those courses are exactly what they are picturing. Many only dream of playing these courses.
Isleworth is a private club and the memberships cannot be shared. I have no idea how many times people have asked me about leasing a home in Isleworth (which very, very few homes ever lease) and using the home owners membership to play on the course. Like that would never be allowed to happen.
Isleworth is one of the most exclusive golf courses in the nation and Isleworth has guards, gated entrances and electronic security features that I may get in trouble for even mentioning. It is a very secure community and course. Most people will just not get to play there. Memberships cost are not for the faint of heart. Contact Isleworth with the following information.
Keenes Pointe is the home of the Golden Bear Club. A vital part of the Windermere golf scene, this course has a wide variety of membership types. Residents of Keenes Pointe can purchase a discounted membership with limited access to the course itself. Think Windermere golf without the massive investment that a top tier membership would cost you. For more information reach out to the club directly.
Living in Windermere FL and loving to play golf can leave you wanting to expand your horizons. By that I mean honing your skills on other courses which are near the city. Since the Windermere Club closed years ago options within the 34786 zip code have dwindled. Luckily there are three very local courses you can reach out to and potentially play.
Arnold Palmers Bay Hill is a private club. It is a gorgeous one as well and right next to Windermere FL. Not quite Windermere golf but you can see Bay Hill from parts of Isleworth. Bay Hill is close enough to provide a great option and the club offers quite a bit. You can call them for more information and the contact info for their Membership Director is right here.
This course is located in Winter Garden Florida just a short drive from Windermere. Just take Lake Butler Drive to its western end, cross the Winter Garden Vineland Road onto West Orange Country Club Drive and you are within a mile or so of an afternoon of golf. And for considerably less money than your Isleworth membership would cost. I believe an Isleworth membership would pay for my golf at the West Orange Country Club way past my natural death. Contact them using the information below.
Windermere FL golf can be addictive and it definitely takes a financial commitment. However, as I have just shown you a few of the nearby options hopefully you will discover the others. Then you can amaze your friends and family with how your game has improved. I'm looking forward to seeing you play some golf in Windermere FL.
