Hawk's Landing Golf Club in Orlando unveils New Island Green
October 14, 2020
You don't have to keep an eye on a bird of prey to spot the Orlando World Center Marriott resort, a hotel with over 2,000 rooms and a conference center near Walt Disney World. When this miracle opened in 1986, it was the largest hotel in the state of Florida. And from the very beginning, there was an 18-hole course, Hawk & # 39; s Landing Golf Club. It was originally designed by Joe Lee, and later updated by Bob Cupp in 1999.
Hawk’s Landing Golf Club personifies the airy and sunny Florida golf resort with a collection of palm trees, ponds and, yes, many birds that enjoy the area. If you're a regular Orlando visitor or golfer in downtown Florida, chances are you've experienced this popular layout conveniently located near I-4 and International Drive.
But from September 2020 it has been remastered again. Marriott Golf brought in Bobby Cupp Jr, son of the late Bob Cupp, to redesign the final three holes, which now includes an island green finish opening. This new hole is a par 3 located 204 yards from the championship tees.
Additional highlights as part of the renovation include new bunkers and Diamond Zoysiagrass wells.
"Nice layout," Golf Advisor reviewer wrote in their review of Hawk's Landing on Sept. 24, shortly after the course reopened. “Lots of water to work with. A challenge for every player. The island green on the last hole is a plus for everyone to try. "
Hawk’s Landing Golf Club is a resort course operated by Marriott’s Global Golf Division, offering stay-and-play packages for hotel guests visiting this entertainment and theme park mecca. Local golfers in Orlando can gobble up tee times online, soak up membership options, or even take advantage of the world-class golf schools offered year-round.
