If you're sitting on the shores of Lake Dora in Tavares, across the water you will see a small land mass that holds one of the greatest treasures in all of Florida; It's our own Deer Island. Our privately-owned, semi-private, island, includes a Joe Lee designed golf course with unrivaled playability, a club house, and secluded sections of residential homes all surrounded by water.

The island is under new ownership and there are 69 golf course, waterfront, or estate, pad ready lots now available for building contractors and real estate investors who can see the vision of luxury homes in one of the most unique environments imaginable.

Our Joe Lee course is open for both residents and visitors and it's a golfer’s dream. For the beginner, this course will challenge but not frustrate you, yet the expert golfer will find the course as exhilarating as many others worldwide. Lee believed that golfers wanted a challenge, but a fair one. If you play our Joe Lee course, odds are you will walk away smiling. Undulating greens, strategically located visible hazards, and unique bunkers are part of Joe’s trademark design and all are realized on the delightful course here on Deer Island.

Florida residents can enjoy summer specials to play this course which carves its way through the environmentally protected Florida wetlands and is surrounded by the surrounded by the beautiful waters of Lake Dora and Lake Beauclair.

The Island is a short hop away from the eclectic towns of Mount Dora, Tavares, and Eustis where visitors can enjoy a mix of antique and bric-a-brac stores, numerous festivals, regattas, and bike races, as well as weekly farmers markets, restaurants, and historic destinations.

There are great bed and breakfasts and small inns available for overnight stays in Mount Dora and nearby Tangerine. Pontoon boats rides to Deer Island can be arranged for golf parties.
