By way of background, RPGC was founded in 1957 and played host to major professional tournaments including the men's and women's Florida Citrus Opens. Great golfers who competed here include: Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Jane Blalock and Patty Shehan. The course itself is close to 7,000 yards long and features beautiful fairways surrounded by old growth flora. It has been dubbed by the media as the "crown jewel of southeast Orlando."
The club facilities could accommodate; wedding receptions, quinceaneras, bar mitzvahs and sweet sixteen parties as well as smaller celebrations like birthdays and anniversaries. Thus it's a great place to entertain family and friends as well as to use for business purposes.
