Mountain Lake is one of Florida’s best kept secrets, especially for the avid golfer.
A private community founded in 1915, Mountain Lake also has a top-ranked golf course designed by Seth Raynor. The Colony House is a focal point for the community and serves as a clubhouse and private hotel.
Located among the rolling hills and lakes of Central Florida, Mountain Lake was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Jr. and is listed on the National Register. Mountain Lake is ranked #16 Best Residential Golf Course by Golfweek
and #8 Most Fun Private Course by Golf Digest.
“Back in 1917 at Mountain Lake in Lake Wales, Fla., Seth Raynor arrayed a residential golf course community on an old citrus field that encircled a lake. In the process he utilized a generous land plan by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. (son of the pioneer landscape architect) that today, draped with live oaks, makes you feel as if you were time-tunneled back to an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel.” Golfweek
