There are over 150 courses within 45 minutes drive of downtown so plenty to choose from and prices in Orlando are extremely reasonable, discounts are often available on twilight golf and many golfers prefer this time as temperatures are beginning to cool down. Carts are often included and refreshments offered so why not pack those clubs and bring them along the next time you visit.
With so many to choose from below is just a small selection....
