“Best Driving Range in America”

Orange County National Golf Center
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Orange County National is a very good golf destination. Two highly rated golf courses. Panther Lake is better in my opion that Crooked Cat. The staff is excellent. You should arrive extra early so that you can utilize the driving range. It's incredible. Also, a nice short game area.

OCN is an very good test of golf. Played both courses with greens a little on the shaggy side. One major thing they can improve on is the restaurant service....had two meals there and on both occasions, almost missed our tee times. Get the staff some help!!!

We played both courses at Orange County National on 4/9/13. As usual, courses were in great condition. Make sure you play here if you have the opportunity. It is a no doubt-er.We were able to take advantage of a special which allowed you to play both courses for one price. Awesome deal. The only negative to be said is the small changes in the amenities that used to standard. No more GPS. We were told that the cost was prohibitive. The courses are very well marked with yardage but it was always nice to have the yardage on the gps rather than having to pace off distances. With our rate the range balls were not included. I would have rather paid a few bucks more and had them included. It just seems more like being a member. Also, there used to be bottled water included on the carts. Again, not so much about the money but the experience. We will return again next year.

I live in a damp climate where I dream all year long of playing in brilliant sunshine on an outstanding golf course with friendly staff and a little value thrown in. Read on because this is where my dream comes true every October.
Every year we play both the Crooked Cat course and Panther Lakes. They are both truly outstanding.
Crooked Cat early in the morning is quiet in October (first out at 8.50am!) and has a touch of the Jurassic Park experience with wonderful wildlife abundant.
The courses are a superb test of skill and have great variety.
If you play one golf course in florida play Crooked Cat. If you play two play Panther Lakes second. You will love it and the cost is not excessive. I would pay $125 to play here but don't tell the mangement. We have played lots of the Orlando courses over the years but these two are streets ahead of the competition. Fantastic.
The staff and the shop are both outstanding and the whole place is professional.
Food is usually excellent but we did have a hiccup on last visit with no chef and a very substandard meal served. however, mistakes happen and the issue was addressed. The breakfasts are usually fabulous and if your tee time is imminen they will cook to order in minutes.
