The East or West coast and Kennedy Space Centre are around 60 - 75 minutes away.

The clubhouse serves light snacks and drinks. Mike Dasher's Highlands Reserve Golf Course (opened in 1998) located 12 minutes southwest of Disney World is a golf course unlike anything you would expect in Florida. What makes Highlands Reserve special is the spirited design that matches the property's unique character. The course sits on the edge of a long sand shelf called the Green Swamp Ridge near the town of Davenport, with elevations spanning 120 feet from top to bottom. Dasher's holes fairly dance around it, two-stepping from a high point at the first green all the way to the low basin of the 13th fairway. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: Dwe 6313364More

How to get there
There are three main international airports within a reasonable distance of the villa. Orlando International Airport - 40-45 minutes; Sanford International (mainly used by charter flights) 50 minutes; Tampa International - 65 minutes, In our opinion Tampa is the easiest Airport to get in & out simply due to the numbers using Orlando. We send a route map from the relevant airport to our villa as part of our information pack between 2 / 3 weeks prior to arrival..
