Once upon a time there used to be a very nice Golf Course called Grande Pines but unfortunately the Course was closed for business in 2015. Fortunately, I got the Possibility to play one of the last rounds before they closed it. So far I played several Golf Courses in the area of Orlando and I must say most of them surprised me, also like Grande Pines. As every time I have booked a teetime via “Golfnow.com”. It was a very cold and cloudy morning when I met my two flight partners from Canada on the first tee.
I was very impressed and stoked about the first tee, because it was already a task with a lot of water on the right site. Usually the quality of the golf courses in the US are amazing and the price-performance ratio is not compatible to germany.
Only 35 Dollars for such a beautiful Place is simply reasonable and my first impressions of Grande Pines should not have fooled me. Very fast greens and a perfect mown Fairway including tricky great bunker traps combined with the typical Florida water hazard, I knew Grande Pines would make my day.
I was in a good golf Mood, the score and the day became better and better and even the clouds disappeared. To put it in a nutshell Grande Pines was really an amazing experience and it’s a pity that this Course is closed.
Rest in Peace Grande Pines.
