Looking for an extreme way to coddle your qualifiers on the golf course? Look no further than the new Grande Lakes Resort in Orlando, Fla.
The resort will include a golf concierge in its greens fee, who will handle just about whatever your guests need — from cleaning their clubs to confirming their airline reservations.
“He does everything but caddy,” says Jane M.Chaney, CMP, director of marketing for the 1,000-room JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes Resort. The Marriott makes up half of the Grande Lakes Resort. The other half is occupied by Orlando's first Ritz-Carlton, which offers 584 rooms.
The 18-hole, Greg Norman — designed course is managed by Ritz-Carlton. The course is tucked into Grande Lake's 500-acre serene setting, of which 200 acres are water.
“The resort is very peaceful,” says Chaney. “You can almost hear a pin drop when you're out on the golf course.”
