While I enjoy posting about golf clubs across the USA and sharing my reviews on them, I do also appreciate keeping people informed of the latest details that pertains to each course. In the case of the Legends Golf Course and Country Club in Orlando, Florida, this course has officially been closed. Below you can find details about it’s previous existence as well as articles related to the closure.
When the golf course closed down, many local residents who owned homes on the course were very upset. According to this article, which stated it closed in early 2018, parts of the golf course look “dead or barren.”
Miguel Vidal who owns Aerocopter, bought the course and is trying to figure out what to do with it. Fixing the course, according to Vidal, will cost anywhere between $500,000 to $2,000,000.

Legendary Golf At The Legends Golf & Country Club in Clermont is one of the finest accomplishments of famous course designer Lloyd Clifton. This beautiful Clifton-Ezell-Clifton 18-hole course stretches 6,911 yards from the gold tees and is a challenge and delight for every golfer. Legends is a par 72 with a Slope Rating of 131 and Course Rating of 73.
Carved from former citrus groves, the course boasts a multitude of rolling fairways and dramatic elevation changes, bordered by perimeter mounding – all leading to large, undulating, well-bunkered greens. Water is found on just six holes with a number of challenging doglegs. The course is most memorable for its extremely challenging par three’s. Their expansive “mountain-top” driving range boasts elevation drops of 75 to 100 feet with brilliant, panoramic views of Lake Louisa in the background.
They also did weddings and events, and like most golf courses, they had a restaurant on premises.
