From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lake Nona Golf & Country Club is a private residential golf club community in southeast Orlando, Florida.[1] The 600-acre (2.4 km2) community features an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Tom Fazio. Set amidst freshwater lakes and oak, pine, and cypress trees, Lake Nona Golf & Country Club offers a range of residences, including custom-built estate homes.

Lake Nona Golf & Country Club is located 20 minutes from downtown Orlando, 10 minutes from the Orlando International Airport and 30 minutes from the Atlantic beaches. The community is centered in Tavistock Group's current 7,000-acre (28 km2) mixed-use development plan for the Lake Nona region, which will be home to a life sciences cluster becoming known as the Lake Nona Medical City. The medical city includes the University of Central Florida College of Medicine and the Sanford Burnham Institute for Medical Research at Lake Nona.

Construction is underway on Nemours Children’s Hospital, one of the nation's largest children's health systems, as well as the Orlando Veterans Affairs Medical Center, which will serve Central Florida’s 400,000 veterans. Both Lake Nona facilities are scheduled to open in 2012. In addition, the University of Florida announced its plans to build a Lake Nona academic and research center, which will house a Comprehensive Drug Development Center, the UF College of Pharmacy doctoral program and biomedical research laboratories.

Lake Nona has plans to create a major open-air town center that will include department stores, upscale fashion and large-scale retailers, restaurants and other entertainment venues.

Lake Nona Golf & Country Club is one of the two country club communities that compete in the annual Tavistock Cup. Lake Nona Golf & Country Club is a popular residence for top professional golfers, including Ernie Els, Annika Sörenstam, Ben Curtis, Sergio García, Retief Goosen, Trevor Immelman, Graeme McDowell, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, as well as LPGA up-and-comer Yani Tseng.
