Best golf resorts in Orlando, Florida

April 18, 2013

Bay Hill Club and Lodge (888-422-9445,
Small by Orlando resort standards with just 70 rooms, the Lodge does offer one amenity no other resort in the world can offer during the winter months: the chance to bump into Arnold Palmer during the winter months. Unless you know a member though, you have to stay here to get a tee time on the PGA Tour venue course just steps away from the Lodge entrance.

Villas of Grand Cypress Resort (407-239-4700,
An extensive $14 million renovation of the 146 rooms, with an emphasis on upgraded interiors and technology, is injecting new energy into this favorite of visiting golfers.

Reunion Resort (866-880-8563,
A wide variety of villas and homes are available here, including those in the 11-story tower that offers views of the 54 holes of golf on property.

Waldorf Astoria Orlando (407-597- 5500,
With 498 rooms and a location right next to Walt Disney World, this upscale option includes multiple restaurants that pay homage to their New York City namesakes. The hotel is connected via a convention center to the 1,001-room Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. Tee times at the resort's golf course are available for guests at both properties.

Walt Disney Resort (407-939-6244,
The accommodation options here are as endless as the number of characters parading around the theme park. Not exactly a place for the buddies golf trip, but package deals may make it an option worth checking out.
