Hubby & I played the Crooked Cat, Nov 1, 2016 on the recommendation of others. We both play f/ the regular men's tees. It is very, very beautiful there. We were told that it has many elevation changes, but it does not... not by our definition anyway. On hole #8 there were some mounds, but they were level f/ tee... More

Arrived early (6:30) and course manager (Jerry) was the only person there. He went out of his way to get us started and we teed off at sunrise! The course was amazing! Great shape, several interesting and difficult holes and perfect greens! The course is not far from Disney and I'd recommend this course for serious golfers. I plan to... More

As this is a nice, well manicured golf course (Panther Lake), be prepared ... There is very little room around the greens. LOTS of sand, and when there is not sand, expect to see water. Takes a 'lob' approach; a long iron to the green that 'hits and runs' will be lost in the high rough around the green. Keep... More

One good course (Crooked Cat), one great course (Panther Lake). Both in good shape and fun to play. They have cut back on some of the small amenities like a bottle water in the ice bucket and the service in the restaurant is a trifle slow ( I suspect it is the fault of the kitchen). We paid $45 for... More

I have been playing golf for less than a month. I've spent a lot of time at the driving range and playing the short, 9 hole course. The facility is great. It's in great condition. I lov it

I played both Crooked Cat and Panther courses. These course play more like northern courses than most Florida courses in that you aren't hitting on "skinny fairway grass" all the time. They are very well maintained and not overcrowded. The pro shop is well stocked with all the popular brands and if it's related to golfing, it's there.

Orange National is a great course and definitely a place to play. I will never attempt to play there again. It shows how much a starter can ruin a pace of play. I had a tee time with my son and we were playing as a twosome. When we get to the tee box, the starter let two foursomes go... More

This was a great facility. We played the Panther Lake course. Each hole was unique. The course was in great shape although the greens were not as fast as I expected. The pro shop was one of the nicer ones I have seen. The range was large. Probably the best public course I have played.

We played two rounds at OCN last November. Both courses were overseeded for the winter. However conditions were still very good. Obviously carts were not permitted in the fairway. Crooked Cat is tighter and shorter. Panther Lake is more open but longer. The greens were firm but not too speedy. Services were excellent. The practice areas were second to none.... More
