There are three par-4s, the longest measuring 289 yards. The par-3s stretch from 86 to 211 yards from the White tees. It's more interesting than most executive courses. This is a public golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged. Green fees are subject to change. Open daily 7am onwards.

Gary Player is fast assembling a portfolio of well-designed golf courses. Bay Tree National is one of them. There are lots of sand traps and a substantial number of mounds to contend with on this course. The course is in excellent shape. The par-5s are all roughly 490 to 510 yards long from the Men's tees. The par-3s flirt with 200 yards or more from the furthest tees. Their length is substantially less from the tees where mere mortals play. This course is a gem. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
This is essentially a flat golf course. Palmer has sprinkled a significant number of traps about the course; they can be deep, so it's best to avoid them altogether. The course winds through a thickly wooded area. There is also a remarkable practice area. The par-3s measure 190 to 220 yards. The par-5s are 547 to 583 yards. The par-4s are long from either of the back tees. Once you reach the Medal tees, the par-4 distances are more rational. This is a public golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed.
The Challenge Course at Suntree Country Club is a links-style design with lots of water added. There are sand traps lurking as well. This 1989 Arnold Palmer design is rugged from the Gold tees. The par-3s are 200 yards or more from all the way back. They measure 170 yards or so from the Blue tees. From the Gold tees, the par-5s run from 530 to 580 yards. The more reasonable option is the Blue tees. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
The Classic Course is a more traditional central Florida layout than its sister course, the Challenge.

Joe Lee's trademark traps demand accuracy.

This is a semi-private golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed.
This 1973 Robert Renaud-designed the Turtle Creek Golf Club features very thin fairways and a number of lakes and streams. It's challenging from the Gold tees. The par-5s are varied.

This is a semi-private golf course.
