  • Played for the first time 12/3/16. Amazing course in an amazing scenic area. Would highly recommend the course. In perfect condition, playable for skilled golfers and a good day for an occasional golfer as well. Ladies tees could be more generous but that's the only comment. Will certainly play again.
  • Every year I play Deer Island. They have gone through a couple of name changes. It was called "The International Golf Club" for a while. It's the same place. This course is easily the hardest course I've ever played. Every year when I come to Florida, I make sure I play it at least once. It's probably a pushover if you can hit it straight. Plenty of wide landing areas. But if you're crooked, bring a lot of balls. If you push it, it's a penalty. If you pull it, it's a penalty. If you hook it, it's a penalty. If you slice it, it's a penalty. The layout is awesome. I've seen a gator or two every time I've played here. Lots of wildlife and ZERO cookie-cutter holes. I can't wait to go back. Don't bring an extra sleeve of balls, bring a box. Also, leave the gators alone while they sun themselves.
  • I moved here because of this golf course. It has come a long way from the last ownership. Since Jan. of 2016 this course has come a long way. Started playing again in Nov.2016 and the course and the property have come a long way. New owner has sunk a lot of money into housing and beach ,marina and so on. Still want to see golf course in a little better shape for a sizable price increase for the winter. The staff is very friendly and will help with any of your needs. Restaurant has very good food and is great to sit after a round and relax.
  • Excellent course conditions. Best value before 8 am tre time.
  • One of hidden gems in Orlando Area. Can't beat the price with the course they offer. Greens are average but well above playable conditions. Hole layouts are very challenging with fairways being surrounded by lakes/ponds. If this course is in Kissimmee area, you will be looking at paying $50+ in morning tee times.
