The staff is friendly. The course is well- maintained. Challenging layout but playing from green tees made it enjoyable for weekend player like me. Overall experience is very satisfactory. When you're in the area, playing in Crooked Cat is a must.

I very much like playing both courses at OCN, but the last few times out I played the Panther Lake course, this last time out I played Crooked Cat and realized how much I really enjoy playing OCN.

Even though the greens were a bit grainy and there were a couple of showers, I had a great time!

The course was in great shape. The staff and beverage attendant were very friendly. Most of all, no houses on the course, so you really feel like you've escaped to some place special!

The staff is tremendous here. Pro-shop prices are very competetive and offer a wide selection of balls by the sleeve and dozen. Beverage cart checked on us every 3 or 4 holes. The greens were really slick which is great and unusual for Florida this time of year. The rest of the course was very well manicured. The rough....well it was rough. Thats why they call it the rough. Bring your A+ game because shot placement is a premium. Practice facilities are world class. Looking forward to playing again at OCN soon.

Second round played at Crooked Cat in two years. Course in good condition with greens rolling nicely. If only the same could be said for pace of play and friendliness of starter. Someone got up on wrong side of the bed! No marshal in site all day. Turned an otherwise nice day for golf into an average experience.

Really cool course, it was my first time playing it. I enjoyed everything about the round except for the pace of play. The group that was two in front of us was very slow and caused the entire five or six groups to slow down. The course itself was in very good condition, greens were firm and somewhat fast. I enjoyed putting on them. Bunkers were in fantastic shape. If you have a chance to play don't hesitate to go there and play.

Crooked Cat is my favorite course in the Orlando area. As the name indicates, the course follows a fun route and not a back and forth bore.

Lies where tight, but should be expected this time of year. Greens nearly perfect.
