The best courses in Orlando under $100
Nailing down a Florida golf trip itinerary can be overwhelming. With over 1,450 courses in the state (including nine-holers), the options can blend together. The task becomes even more challenging if you’re on a budget, as increased greens fees have made it tough to play on the cheap.
That said, if you’re planning a Florida golf trip and looking to limit the financial damage, Orlando is a great option. A short flight from many East Coast hubs, it’s an easy weekend getaway.
We’re here to help narrow down your options for your next trip to Central Florida with the Best Courses in Orlando Under $100. You may notice some Orlando staples (Orange County National, Disney’s Magnolia, Reunion Resort, etc.) are missing—they’re just over our $100 threshold. The below are the options that deliver unmatched value.
Though most courses have moved to a dynamic pricing system, where the rate changes daily based on demand, we’ve found regularly offered rates for under $100 at each of these layouts. Playing in the afternoon will offer you the best value, but many of these tracks can be found for a reasonable rate in the morning, too.

Southern Dunes grew out of an unfortunate event in 1989, when a 350 acre citrus grove was lost to a severe freeze. Instead of replanting the grove, the group of owners decide to build a golf course on the land. Today, Southern Dunes offers a refreshing design that differs from many typical Florida layouts, where flat fairways are heavily guarded by water. Instead, Southern Dunes plays over rolling terrain with elevation changes of up to 100 feet. Though water is in play on a few holes, tall-lipped bunkers are the primary defense, and many guard the fairways and greens. Note: Southern Dunes is about 45 minutes from downtown Orlando. Depending on where you're staying, it may be a bit of a drive, but it is worth getting to if possible.

The Deltona Club offers a captivating Bobby Weed design that differs from the occasionally monotonous, flat Florida layouts. Deltona is defined by its significant elevation changes and massive bunkering. It’s worth noting that if you place a high value on immaculate course conditions, Deltona may not be for you. Though the conditions may not meet the level of a private club, we include Deltona on our best courses you can play in Orlando list due to the intriguing design that differs from many nearby layouts. Note: Deltona is located about halfway between Orlando and Daytona Beach. About 30 miles from Orlando, it's a bit of a drive but worth considering if you have the time.
