The semi-private Tierra Del Sol Golf and Country Club is one of the few championship courses in The Villages not sitting on a major thoroughfare but is well worth seeking out. The winding trek, which opened in 1996, offers a little bit of something for every player.

The Hernando De Soto front nine used to be the back nine of nearby Hacienda Hills – the old starter’s shack is still standing near the eighth tee box. Now a part of Tierra Del Sol, the nine is a little more open than the back, so players can really be aggressive as they play the beautiful layout adorned by some of the oldest oak trees in The Villages.

Tierra Del Sol means the ”land of the sun” in Spanish, but players might believe a more apt name for this course might be the ”land of old trees” as they take in the beauty of these massive, shady oaks that dive their limbs underground before stretching back out into the sun.

One of the most challenging 18-holes in The Villages, Tierra Del Sol plays to over 6800 yards. The Hernando De Soto nine is long and well-bunkered with fewer trees. The Ponce DeLeon back nine was designed to preserve the natural beauty and wildlife of the nature preserves that come into play on eight of its holes. Large bunkers and large, well-contoured greens add a finishing touch to this course which offers four sets of tees, making it playable and enjoyable for all skill levels.

Tierra Del Sol Golf and Country Club has hosted several notable tournaments including the Samsung World Championship of Women’s Golf, featuring the top 16 women golfers worldwide, and the $1-million Villages Charity Challenge Tournament featuring LPGA tour players, including Nancy Lopez, Julie Inkster, Helen Alfredson, Mi Hyun Kim, Betsy King and Brandie Burton.

Facilities at  Tierra Del Sol Golf and Country Club include a chipping and putting green, Pro shop, and excellent clubhouse bar and restaurant, tennis courts and a hitting net for warming up. There is also a swimming pool and billiards tables available at the clubhouse.
