Duran Golf Club
Golfers from all over Central Florida and beyond travel to the community of Viera to play the award winning golf course in the area, Duran Golf Club. Named “Best Public Golf Course” and ranked in the Top 50 in the country for practice range, Duran Golf Club defines “Great Golfing Experience” to those who live for golf.
You’ll find rolling terrain characteristic of a links-style layout, with mild mounding around the large, undulating greens. Along the way you’ll encounter sparkling lakes and ponds, sweeping doglegs, native landscaping, grasses, and palm trees. The golf course is located near the Atlantic Ocean so the coastal breezes can add great variety to your game. The par fives can be stout three-shot tests or tempting “go-in-two” holes. What singles out Duran Golf Club from other golf facilities in the area is the Award Winning – World Class Development Center, which offers the largest and most comprehensive practice facilities in the area.
The facility includes an expansive practice range, short game area, and the popular nine-hole “Par 3 Course” that encircles the practice facility. Best of all, the entire facility is illuminated for evening use until 9pm nightly, ideal for those wanting to make the most of their golfing time at the course. This facility boasts the Duran Academy of Golf, featuring a full time staff of PGA Instructors available year round to help golfers of all skill levels with their game.
Duran also recently received certification from the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Environmental Planning. This is the first of several certifications achieved to gain membership. Other certifications currently in the works include Wildlife and Habitat Management, and Water quality and conservation, and golfer education. The Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses provides an advisory service to help existing golf courses develop effective conservation and wildlife enhancement programs. This worldwide effort is coordinated by Audubon International and is sponsored in part by the United States Golf Association.
Being good stewards of the land is very important to the staff at Duran. The employees work very hard to make sure that great care is taken to make sure the habitat is safe for wildlife and the residents of the surrounding communities. Duran Golf Course also features a British West Indies style clubhouse featuring Tradewinds Restaurant, a gorgeous real estate development wrapped around an unforgettable par 72, 7,151-yard championship golf course. The Tradewinds Restaurant at Duran has become a popular destination for specialty events and wedding receptions, along with offering lunch daily (famous fish tacos) and a wonderful Sunday Brunch.
