University Park Country Club

Designed by renowned golf course architect, Ron Garl, on 200 acres of lush green grass, University Park Country Club boasts two spectacular 18-hole golf courses. Throughout both courses, the surrounding wetlands act as obstacles and give you a truly immersive, nature-filled experience.  

Equipped with a modern driving range, chip and putt practice green, as well as bunkers for recovery shots or pre-round warm-up swings — University Park has something to offer every golfer. 



TPC Prestancia

Considered one of the best golf courses in Florida, the Tournament Players Club of Prestancia's member-exclusive 36-hole championship golf course makes use of 565 lush acres of Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary.

Here, you'll find two courses designed by renowned architects, Ron Garl and Mike Souchak. The Stadium Course offers an energetic style of play that is both demanding and rewarding. On the other hand, the oak tree-covered Players Course boasts a more traditional style of play that is perfect for all skill levels.
