Grip it and Rip it – Grande Pines Golf Club, Florida


Renowned golf course architect Steve Smyers has designed one of Central Florida’s most dynamic new golf courses. In partnership with six-time major champion Sir Nick Faldo, Smyers created each hole of Grande Pines Golf Club to be a strategic challenge that will bring out the best in each player’s game. The course earned nationwide acclaim when it was named in Golfweek’s Top 100 “America’s Best Resort Courses”.

Nestled among lakes, tall pines, oaks and palms, Grande Pines Golf Club peacefully coexists with the native flora and wetlands. The course is committed to environmental stewardship, and is a member of the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses.
The “risk and reward” layout is designed to provide each golfer with a choice – testing their skills of ball control and levels of confidence. Do you “Grip it and rip it” over the hazard, play a fade to the side? The type of course that you wish to play is completely yours at Grande Pines Golf Club.
More conservative players can always take the safe route, but bolder competitors can challenge the course for a thrilling experience. The contoured, rolling fairways accept most tee shots; and the well-bunkered, multi-tiered greens reward accuracy on approach shots. Four sets of tee boxes allow golfers of all skill levels to enjoy the adventures posed by the magnificent layout of Grande Pines Golf Club.

Each golf car at Grande Pines Golf Club is equipped with a ProLink yardage system to provide the golfer with accurate yardage to each hole.
After your game, refresh and relax in the world-class surroundings. As part of the Marriott family, the clubhouse at Grande Pines Golf Club offers luxurious amenities including generously sized lockers and spacious showers. Enjoy breakfast or lunch at the Greenside Grille, serving Floridian specials with stunning views overlooking the course. The golf shop at Grande Pines Golf Club carries the latest golf equipment and accessories, as well as a wide variety of men’s and women’s apparel.
