Mountain Lake | Lake Wales, Florida
Assistant General Manager 

About the Club

Established in 1915, Mountain Lake is a shareholder-owned, for-profit corporation whose three core businesses are orange groves, real estate and a country club located on a historic property in Lake Wales, Florida.  Mountain Lake itself is an exclusive gated community offering a beautiful well-rounded sports club and a haven for their members. Mountain Lake sits upon over 3,500 acres and is located next to the famed Bok Tower Gardens among the rolling hills of the Lake Wales Ridge in Central Florida between Orlando and Tampa/St. Petersburg.  The land sets upon one of the highest points on the Florida peninsula at 290 feet of elevation and offers landscape more comparable to the Carolinas than south Florida.

Mountain Lake’s Colony House and the Park (as the gated community is known) are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and were planned by Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr., scion of the designer of New York’s Central Park and a noted landscape architect in his own right whose landscape designs include Boston’s and Baltimore’s respective park systems and Maine’s Acadia National Park. A Seth Raynor designed the golf course is woven within the Park’s community design.

The club offers its homeowners, shareholders and members a winter refuge from the outside world. As one of the oldest golf communities in Florida, Mountain Lake contains one hundred thirty-one (131) home sites of which over one hundred belong to the members of Mountain Lake. The Park is hidden by orange groves and perimeter landscaping.  With only 110 members, Mountain Lake is one of America’s most exclusive clubs.
