Timacuan has been among the most popular tournament courses in Central Florida since opening in 1988. When I retired and moved to Florida, I chose Timacuan Golf & Country Club to live primarily because of the outstanding course and proximity to Interstate 4. It has been ranked as high as No. 14 in Florida and has hosted dozens of national and international competitions. U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell is among its fans.
“I really enjoyed the golf course,” said McDowell, after playing in the annual $10,000 Timacuan Scramble. “Timacuan is a great layout with a links-like feel to it and can be testy in places if you get off the beaten path, but it is a very fair course.” The 421-yard second hole has been chosen as the toughest par 4 in Central Florida.
The Foley Performance Academy @ EaglesDream is headquartered at Timacuan, and is headed by world-renowned golf instructor Sean Foley, who was the former coach for Tiger Woods, and currently helps 2013 U. S. Open and Olympic Gold-Medalist Justin Rose, 2016 Masters Champion Danny Willett and two-time PGA winner Cameron Champ. The school is home to several top international junior players, but also offers training and instruction to all levels of golfers. The main focus is providing junior golfers a unique opportunity to develop big match temperament through elite golf training with world-class academics at Lake Mary Preparatory School.
