Mayfair Country Club

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 National Baseball Association, 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
  • Course rating of 70.3 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 123 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

Customer Reviews

The course was in great shape. Cart paths could use some repair. Restaurant was very good. Pizza excellent. Cassidy was wonderful. Her service, personality, and being beautiful doesn't hurt. She provided excellent service. Not uppity!

Mayfair is a good course and requires some good shots. It is a fun course as well, don't need to be a pro to have fun on this course. Prices are usually pretty good, and a friendly bartender for that cold drink after your round! I would recommend Mayfair to anyone.
