The Glenlivet® City Links
ORLANDO, FL– This January, seasoned golfers and amateurs alike will have an inimitable opportunity to improve their game, as The Glenlivet brings the experience of a traditional Scottish golf course to the heart of the Orlando shopping district. Located in stylish Pointe Orlando, The Glenlivet City Links, complete with nine challenging holes, a virtual driving range and chipping area, will be housed in the former Metropolis space for two weeks before continuing on its national tour. In addition to practicing their swing, golfers can win a chance to attend an extraordinary trip to St. Andrews or Pinehurst, two of the world’s best-known courses.
“Scotland is known for two world-famous exports. Golf, undoubtedly one of the most celebrated games in the world, and The Glenlivet, the most remarkable Scotch whisky out there,” says Ron Zussman, Brand Director of Glenlivet. “There’s no better way to practice your game during a lunch break than by heading to the nearest course – and we’re thrilled to bring The Glenlivet City Links to Orlando for the first time.”
The Glenlivet City Links will be customized to fit the various lofts and warehouses in each destination it travels to. This impressive course is beautifully landscaped with water hazards, sandtraps, bridges and carefully crafted greens, providing golfers in urban settings with an opportunity to golf on a piece of Scotland, without getting on a plane The course was designed by Arne Lundmark, president of one of the premiere golf course design companies in the country, and Thomas Shöner, renowned interior and architectural designer.
This year, The Glenlivet is proud to partner with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CF Foundation), a research and educational organization dedicated to the development of treatment and a cure for cystic fibrosis. There are no set green fees to play on The Glenlivet City Links; instead, a ‘pay-as-you-will’ policy has been implemented to benefit the CF Foundation.
Reservations are not necessary for participation in the City Links; the course is played on a first-come basis.
