Candler Hills Golf Club in Ocala is not your typical Sunshine State course. It sprawls across a lush landscape reminiscent more of Palm Springs than central Florida. Designed by Naples, Fla. native Gordon Lewis, the layout has five sets of tees to challenge players of all skill levels. The back tees stretch to a whopping 7,233 yards while shorter hitters would probably feel more comfortable on the 4,795-yard forward tees. The golf course is notable for having the longest par-5 hole in the state, aptly nicknamed "The Monster." The hole measures 669 yards from the tips and plays uphill. The rest of the golf course is no walk in the park either. There are nearly 150 strategically placed bunkers and the large greens, which average between 7,000 and 11,000 square feet, make a two-putt nearly impossible. The wind is also a factor in how tough Candler Hills Golf Club will play.
