I have played this course numerous times and been quite happy with it. However we are in the middle of a 3 month or so drought here. Fairways are poor and every green has some part of it than had been lost. Some with major portions. Also the greens are as hard as a rock and unless you can spin the ball its rolling off. I have not played anywhere else recently but I have to assume these issues are happening at other courses as well. Would not recommend this course until there is significant rainfall. Once that happens, have at it

We played this course only once before and that was 3 years ago. We remembered enjoying it at that time, but this time we had a greater appreciation for it's beauty. The layout is challenging with lots of water and the course was in great condition, considering the current drought here. The staff here are very friendly. We would highly recommend this course and are looking forward to playing it again today.

The layout is great, but the course is in terrible, terrible shape - tee boxes, fairways, and greens. I've been playing here for 15 years. This used to be an excellent course, but no longer. The only reason I played here was convenience as I was staying at the resort. Even at the discounted price, it was still too much. On the plus side - course wasn't busy, so pace was very good.

Orange Lake Legends, played 4/11/2017, I have never been disappointed in this course, until today!

The current Reviews show it as a 3.5 star. Not one of the holes would I consider in good condition.

The Fairways are wore down and full of weeds, the greens are burnt and lumpy the Tee box’s look more like a horse pasture. I have been playing this course for over 10 years and have never seen it in such deplorable condition.

Conditions were one of the worst I've ever golfed. The pro said the course conditions are pretty fair due to the recent rain which most likely means they do not water the course. Positives - Good and fun course layout with 3 Par 5's on front and only 1 on the back. Par 37-35. Staff friendly and pace of play great since no one was on the course. We found out for good reason. Course conditions were just atrocious! Lots of bare spots all over the fairway and even some areas on the greens. Greens were brown due to lack of watering and rock hard. Couldn't even hold the green with a sand wedge. It's really a shame because it's supposed to be the only Arnold Palmer "Signature" course in Florida. I would avoid this course.

Course has a great layout. If you roll them in fairway it is a good course. Greens were in good shape. Pace of play was horrendous. No ranger on the course. Really depressing playing a 5 hour round.

Very Dissapointed! I have played this course several times and was simply appalled at the lack of grass in all areas. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were all in dismal condition. All the other Orlando courses were pristine. However, The staff, clubhouse and amenities are first class! The cart girl was attentive; perhaps the best cart girl in Orlando.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course is in very poor condition. Very little turf on the fairways (mostly weeds). Greens are ragged and very uneven. The course could be great but maintenance has been ignored for too long. I would not pay 20 bucks to play here much less 90 bucks again

This course should not be open. No grass on fairways or greens. Being an Arnold Palmer design I expected far more. 5 hour round and apparently only one Marshall to look after both courses. Never saw him. Suggestion to Golf Now that they remove this from their site until the course is returned to some form of reasonable condition.went into the pro shop at the end of the round and as politely as possible told him about the condition of the course. Only response I received was--Oh that's too bad. Again Save your money. Don't play this course

This Arnold Palmer design is a nice layout - easy off the tee for short hitters but challenging the longer you hit. However the course was very dry and fairways were brown and like hitting off hard pan. Better lies in the rough. Greens had dead patches and crabgrass in spots.
