The Country Club of Orlando – Luxury on the Course
The Country Club of Orlando is located just off of North Orange Blossom Trail and NW. Colonial Dr. surrounding Spring Lake. Within this community are luxury waterfront homes, estates, and several larger mansions.
The club itself is one of the largest and oldest country clubs in the entire state of Florida. It covers over 166 acres and includes 12 tennis courts, and 18 hole Donald Ross design golf course, Junior-sized Olympic swimming pool, a fully equipped fitness center, snack bars, clubhouse, dining facilities, meeting rooms and banquet venues. It is a family orientated club providing the highest level of service and professionalism throughout Florida.
Starting back in 1911, the club attracted northern tourists and golf aficionados and was a tremendous asset to the city. The clubhouse quickly became a social center for dances, parties, and community entertainment. By the 1930s, the club had been reorganized and officially named the Country Club of Orlando. Throughout many difficulties over the years during World War II and labor shortages, the club survived and opened a new facility in 1956. There have been three major golf course renovations over the last 50 years and a new clubhouse was debuted in 2000 along with a gala opening ball.
Many of the homes around the country club feature old-world elegance. Some homes were designed by Frank Lloyd Wright or his protégé Ray Bennett. Many have wonderful histories and back stories and each one is customized and unique to individual residents. Most sit on large lots with 4 to 6 bedrooms, 4 to 6 bathrooms in sizes up to 4500 ft.². Many have beautiful views of the course or of Spring Lake and the surrounding park.
The Magic Mall Plaza, shops, markets, restaurants and more are also close by and those with school-age children typically utilize the Princeton Elementary, the Robert E Lee middle school and the Edgewater high school.
