Tranquilo Golf Club at the Four Seasons Orlando
By Carling Nolan
The long-anticipated Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando has officially opened, enabling resort guests and locals the opportunity to play on the stunning 18-hole championship course.
Unique to Central Florida for its varying elevation, abundant wildlife and protected wetlands, the name Tranquilo pays homage to the resort’s Spanish Revival design and tranquil setting, featuring many Southern Live Oak trees with delicate Spanish moss.
Originally built in 1992 and designed by Tom Fazio as Disney’s Osprey Ridge, Fazio re-designed the course for its launch as Tranquilo Golf Club.
Enhancements included creating a completely new hole and renovated bunkers, plus improved visibility and airflow by enhancing the landscape design, in addition to a fully renovated clubhouse. The course is a Par 71, with a yardage of 6,901 and four sets of tees to accommodate all skill levels.
To accommodate the development of Four Seasons Resort Orlando, Fazio created a new par three 16th hole. This beautiful spot on the course is framed by Southern Live Oak trees and a natural sand area that runs from the tee area to the green. Measuring 163 yards from the back tee, it presents a scoring opportunity for the golfer.
The 18th hole, a finishing Par 3, offers 217 yards fronted by a large bunker and a pond to the left. With the stunning backdrop of Four Seasons Resort Orlando in the distance, this hole presents a memorable completion to the round.
Family play is encouraged, and the course offers special golf carts that accommodate a family of four. In addition, children 12 and younger play free with an adult, and children ages 13-18 golf at half price.
