Golf at Crane Lakes Golf and Country Club!
Crane Lakes Golf & Country Club is an extremely well manicured, semi-private 18 hole golf course located just west of Interstate I-95 in Port Orange, Fl. Accuracy is typically rewarded as opposed to sheer length off the tee. Although, the black tees offer a shocking and formidable challenge to even the most skilled players. Many forced carries over water are called for throughout the course, including at the renowned 14th island hole. The club plays host to the Florida Professional Golf Tour each February where some of the best “mini-tour” players in the country are challenged to break par.
A major course renovation was recently completed in the summer of 2014. During this renovation, state-of- the- art, ultra-dwarf, Tift Eagle bermuda greens were installed. Since that time the course has been known to have “The Best Putting Surfaces in the Area”. In addition to the greens, new G Angle sand was installed in the redesigned bunkers. PGA of America “Family Tees” were added to the existing 4 sets of tees allowing for the course to be enjoyed by all types of players.
So whether you are looking to relax on a Sunday afternoon, play a quick 9 after work , or just get outside and enjoy the outdoors, Crane Lakes is the perfect destination. Players can expect a great pace of play and fabulous conditions. Complete with four sets of tee boxes, Crane Lakes is designed for any skill level and a challenge to all.
