ORLANDO-When locally-based Birchwood Acres Ltd. breaks ground late next year on the first phase of 4,784 planned homes, construction on an 18-hole, championship-styled golf course designed by golf great Johnny Miller will be close behind.

The Johnny Miller Design Group is designing the course for Harmony, a planned mixed-use, 10,000-acre community off U.S. 192, east of St. Cloud, FL in Osceola County. The site is 25 miles south of Downtown Orlando and near Walt Disney World’s 30,000-acre empire.

Besides residential, the project will comprise one million sf of commercial/retail and be comparable in size to Celebration, Disney’s two-year-old, new-town community eight miles west of Harmony.
