Great course, wide fairways, forgiving holes The cart paths are in horrendous shape, so expect to bounce around like if you were on safari in Africa

Great course but very crowded, I'd definitely play it again! Driving range is only 170 yards long so it's really just for getting loose.

Course is getting better every month but there are still some serious issues. Need new cart paths and some of the tree limbs on some fairways really need trimming bad as they are hanging way out onto the open fairway on some holes which is unfair. The fairways and greens are real nice now, however.

From Our Editors

After changing owners a number of times, including separate stints in the hands of a Confederate Civil War general and a retired sea captain, the 152-acre plot of Mayfair Country Club was bought by the city of Sanford in 1922. The city quickly built four holes around the beautiful citrus trees and double row of oak trees, opening for business that same year under the title Sanford Country Club. By 1924, an 18-hole course opened and began to attract big-name golfers, including Gene Sarazen and Walter Hagen.

Unfortunately, the course’s upkeep was neglected during the nation's Great Golf-Ball Shortage. After the Depression passed, a small group of investors renovated the course and reopened it in 1945 under the name Seminole Country Club. The course wouldn’t be called the Mayfair Country Club until the late 1940s, when it was acquired by the NFL's New York Giants, a development that led to the course's hosting of PGA tour events from 1955 to 1957 and regular visits from legends such as Sam Snead and Arnold Palmer.

Today, players can walk the same fairways as the game's greats while grappling with the course’s difficult layout, named a Best Course to Play by Golf Digest. Opportunities for high-risk, high-reward shots abound, as two of the four par 5s measure less than 450 yards and the fairways remain as wide and inviting as they were in 1922, having managed to avoid growing thin and feeble with old age.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,403 yards from the back tees
