Dubsdread Making History

Dubsdread Golf Club

Dubsdread Golf Course, just north of downtown Orlando, was recently featured as the Florida Historic Golf Trail’s “Course of the Month.”

The history of Dubsdread dates back to 1923, when Central Florida developer Carl Dann Sr. wanted to form his own golf club. He gathered up at least 100 founding members and began construction that same year. Rumor has it Dann and a couple of members helped design the course by hitting shots through the woods and wherever a golf ball fell, a sand trap was placed.

Where did the name “Dubsdread” come from? Well, the course was built with the intent to instill dread in “dubs” better known as novice golfers. But fear not, this 18-hole, par-70 layout has been an area favorite for generations of golfers, including some legends of the game. Ever hear of Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and Babe Zaharias? They played Dubsdread when the course hosted the Orlando Open from 1945 to 1947.

With four sets of tees playing 4,100 to 6,100 yards, Dubsdread offers a little something for all ages and abilities. Tight fairways and heavily bunkered, postage stamp greens, coupled with lush conditions and beautiful scenery, make Dubsdread a golf oasis just minutes from one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.

Stop by Dubsdread today and make some history of your own … and a birdie or two.
