The house-lined fairways provide a dose of claustrophobia and an abundance of water strikes fear in the heart of those wild off the tee. Still, this 7,312-yard brute is a favorite of visitors to the Sunshine State.

Part of the reason is the variety presented by the 36 holes of golf. The two 18's here, both Bruce Devlin/Robert Von Hagge designs, are distinctly different. The Championship 18 is, as its name suggests, championship-caliber golf. The Glades, however, is an executive-style layout that measures 4,207 yards and plays to a par of 65.
