This 2,300-acre resort built on the rolling hills of a former orange grove, 10 miles southwest of Disney and 45 minutes from Legoland, contains three private golf courses designed by Tom Watson, Arnold Palmer, and Jack Nicklaus, along with villas and homes designed and decorated to satisfy the most discerning guest. The resort was developed as a residential and vacation-home complex, but its condo-style villas and freestanding estate-style houses are available on a per-night
basis, too. If you want to polish your game, the on-site ANNIKA Academy, operated by Ladies Professional Golf Association great Annika Sorenstam, offers training and lessons. Shuttle buses take guests around the property, delivering them to nine pools, the five-acre water park complex, the spa, the tennis courts and the golf clubhouses. If theme parks are not your prime destination, you could get by without a car.
