Detailed description of Windermere Country Club, CLOSED 2016

Windermere Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Windermere, Florida.

Windermere Country Club first opened for play in 1986. The course was designed by Ward Northrup.

Stretching to 6,760 yards from the back tees, the undulating fairways, and challenging greens offer even the most experienced player a solid test. With 13 holes bordering lakes and 63 bunkers strategically placed throughout the course, combined with the unparalleled beauty of pine and oak tree-lined fairways and greens, keeping your mind on golf can be challenging.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6,760 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 5339 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 1, a par-5 that plays to 522 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 176 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 5, a 428-yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Windermere Golf Course is # 11, a 510 yard par-5.

The course closed in April 2016.

Course owner Bryan DeCunha purchased the 155-acre course for $2.17 million in 2011, He has sought county permission to redevelop the about one-third of the acreage into 95 single-family homes. Local residents are opposed. The county has denied permission. He has argued the county’s refusal to surrender the development rights has reduced the property’s value by $19 million.

Two years ago this course was dead. Now completely rebuilt, they hired the greenskeeper from Isleworth who has helped make this course one of the best kept secrets in Florida. Amazing shape, rivals Bay Hill for condition. Great staff, Nice clubhouse. Highly recommend.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
