Metro West is located a few minutes from Universal Orlando Resort and has been open since 1987. In its more twenty years of existence, the golf course has already received a number of recognitions and awards like Best Course in East Central Florida (2001) and Champions Tour Qualifying Site (1997-2007). The golf-oriented magazines like Golf Digest has referred Metro West as one of the best places to play while readers of Orlando Magazine have voted it as the number one public golf course. A golf course named after the creek that traverses the property is the Shingle Creek Golf Course. The creek was formerly used for fishing, trapping and logging cypress trees that were made into shingles for early Central Florida settlers. Years later, David Harman has decided to construct a golf course in the area, a course that envisions challenging golf players and selecting their own degree of difficulty. Aside from Shingle Creel, Harman includes more than 150 golf courses around the word in his resume as a course designer. Players of Shingle Creek may also be surprised with the high class service brought by its counterpart hotel, the Rosen Hotels and Resorts which has been consistently giving extra-ordinary service to its guests for thirty years.
