Sugarloaf Mountain Golf Course
Orlando, FL – Opened 2008 (18 Holes)
Sugarloaf Mountain rests on a former orange grove rehabilitated with live oaks and native grasses. The site is surprisingly hilly with the clubhouse situated atop the highest point on the Florida peninsula. Broad contours lend the place a big, expansive feel. Yet, one of the more intimate spots on the course is my green at the short one-shot eleventh.
I’d recently tracked in the eleventh green in this picture. The tee shot is not much more than a pitch. The short distance demanded a small green. Bill and Ben’s only direction was to get the thing up in the air. The result is a soft, but constantly moving putting surface with steep sides and bunkers cut right up to its perimeter.
