|Victoria Hills Golf Club|
Victoria Hills Golf Club in historic DeLand is the home course for Stetson University's men's and women's golf teams. This arrangement is one of the first major steps in a strong relationship that the Victoria Park community is building with Stetson University, Florida's first private university. Currently Victoria Hills is ranked as the #10 course in the state of Florida, and ranked #41 by Golf World in public courses in the country.
The practice facilities at Victoria Hills are outstanding. The driving range is double-ended and the back range features an 11 hole practice scoring V system. The front range is two tiered, with a manicured , huge hitting area. Directly behind the range is the putting green and also a chipping green and bunker. One of the great practice areas is located between 18 and 1 green. This area features two practice bunkers and greens and wedge shots can be hit up to 60 yards.
Stetson Head Women's Golf Coach Floyd Kerr says, "The great practice areas we have, plus being able to access the course and practice areas seven days a week make for an ideal situation. Also we have a wonderful working relationship with the management and staff at Victoria Hills. Our players always feel welcome and are treated with the utmost service."
Towering oaks and native Floridian pines welcome golfers to this resplendent championship course that features unique, natural challenges carved out of the contours of the land. "Our team plays many outstanding courses around the country and Victoria Hills rates among the best courses we play," says Stetson Head Men's Golf Coach Bob Weickel.
Rolling hills, spans of flowing greens and pristine lakes are the visuals a golfer will experience at Victoria Hills Golf Club. An array of pot bunkers, waste bunkers and native wetlands challenge golfers of all abilities. Regardless of the time of year, golfers will find outstanding putting surfaces at Victoria Hills. The greens are designed with tif-eagle grass, which stands up to more harsh conditions and allows the greens to roll true and perform well every month of the year.
Victoria Hills Golf Club is one of the focal points of Victoria Park. Here the neighborhoods blend seamlessly with the native Florida landscape, Victoria Park features homes priced from the mid $200,000s to over $1 million. Single-family homes by St. Joe and custom homes by independent builders give residents many lifestyle choices. Close proximity to regional cities like Orlando and Daytona Beach and a number of cultural centers make Victoria Park an attractive option for those who are interested in city life conveniences and the personal familiarity of a smaller community. Several educational opportunities are available to residents including Stetson University, Florida's first private university, a prestigious community college, and a number of excellent public schools.
