Deer Island Country Club:
Central Florida’s most unforgettable golf experience.

Welcome to our island paradise!

Your journey to our island paradise affords you the opportunity to enjoy the picturesque landscape of the area’s citrus and horse farms, as pontoon boats, sailboats and seaplanes decorate the lakes. AND a magnificent golf course!

As you pass through the gates of Deer Island, take in the breathtaking views of Lake Dora and Lake Beauclaire while sunlight peeks through the overhanging cypress and oak trees. Time seems to stand still as you begin to relax and enjoy all the sights and sounds the Island has to offer.

The crowning jewel of the island is Deer Island Country Club.

We’re the center of attention. The big draw on the island. And why not!

As a privately-owned, semi-private golf course, Deer Island Country Club  is a world-class facility. Our club's amenities — and our impeccable level of service — enhance your experience here. A course with unrivaled playability, we’re expanding our reach to guests, both within the state as well as the international golf community.

Even a bad score here is enjoyable!

Feast your eyes on the panoramic views and wildlife, as the course winds its way through environmentally-protected Florida wetlands.

Our black tees — playing over 7,000 yards — will challenge any golfer. But with seven sets of tees we can accommodate every level of golfer. Accentuated with water on every hole and Joe Lee's signature finger-style bunkering, Deer Island CC is a golf course with true character.

Before you tee off, a trip to the range will give you a proper warm-up; the golf shop will see you’re well-stocked and looking sharp!

Great … and we’re only getting better!

The golf course, immaculately-maintained and challenging for golfers of all abilities, will always be the star of our show. But we have lots of amenities and activities in the works to round our your Deer Island experience. Numerous renovations have already been completed including clubhouse upgrades; a fresh food and beverage menu and new and expanding offerings in the golf shop.

Deer Island Country Club strives to continually invest back into the facility to enhance our guests experience and exceed their expectations.

Love the lifestyle here? Live it!

We offer seasonal rentals in our rental villas. And if you fall head-over-heels with our surroundings - move in!

We can’t tell our story without telling the John and Carolyn Sonnentag story.

The Sonnentags, avid golfers and environmentalists, acquired the Deer Island Lake and Golf Club and home sites in 2012. They founded Paradise Homes on Deer Island to build luxury residences and restore Deer Island to its rightful place as one of the premier residential communities in Central Florida. 

Mr. and Mrs. Sonnentag believe that working hard, being accountable and listening to their clients is the basis to building trusting relationships. These principles are the foundation of their success and your fulfilling enjoyment here, be it playing here or living here.

Deer Island provides the best of everything for residents and guests.

This is a secluded, natural habitat just 45 minutes from Orlando and The Villages. Nearby, downtown Mount Dora offers historic shopping and antiquing.

Your journey to Deer Island will afford you the opportunity to see the citrus and horse farms that Florida is known for. Once you reach the Island you’ll discover the best-kept secret in Central Florida.
