Review of Crane's Bend

Nice 9 hole course. Recommend you get there in the early a.m. as it tends to get too busy after 11 am and it can really slow down your game. We finished at noon and wanted to play again, but there was about 20 people waiting to go out. My husband and I had originally scheduled a 9:30 am tee time at the nicer 19 hole Legends course on the same property. We told them we wanted to play as a party of 2, and they said no problem. So we got there early, rented clubs, paid for everything, get in the cart and then the starter tells us that we have to catch up with the twosome in front of us. We said we want to play as a party of 2 and he said not today. So we told him, fine....then we are not playing. We went to the pro shop and requested a refund. They apologized and confirmed that we were booked to go out by ourselves, but they couldn't honor the request. You would think they would have told us upon arrival and not wasted our time.

Nice 9 hole 3 and 4 par course located in Orange Lake Resort. Had a "half off depot" voucher for unlimited play. Played 9 twice. I'm a fairly new player so chance to work on my short game. We played early on our check out day (8:30) and we're finished by a little after 11. Course nicely maintained. Nice for quick game.

We had an all Day golf booked. Arrived at 11AM Upon arrival was told that they close in an hour and we had 1 hour left. I said well we were not advised of that when booked it. so he said well I am sorry you can choose to come back another day. We were also had golf range included that we did not get since they were closing. I asked if we could use it another day they said no sorry!
Bad communication, management don't care very unprofessional!!!

Got a Groupon before heading to Florida for our vacation this past week. First round of the season, so having access to the range, and playing a short course was good to get a bit of a warm up. Went out early morning (8am), quiet on the course then as far as other players, and got through very quickly. Was starting to fill in just before 9:30. Only problem with the course that would prevent us from playing there again is the same as Legends at Orange Lake: people wandering the golf course, from their rented condos, oblivious to golfers about to hit the ball. Too bad the management doesn't communicate to people staying there to be aware of golfers and not interrupt play.

Thoroughly enjoyed my rounds on this challenging par 3 course. Was a great short game warmup before hitting The Legends course. Lucked into a Groupon which offered clubs, cart, a bucket of balls and the rounds. Will be back...
