For mid January, the course was in pristine shape, as always.

Even the 'off fairway' areas were well kept up, and continually shows the care that goes into keeping this course up through the winter season.

Greens were excellent, rolled true, and were somewhere in the stimp 11-12 range.

Always a pleasure to play at Orange County-

Excellent course but very crowded which makes for a relatively slow round. It would be nice to have a ranger actually telling slow groups to keep up the pace and to remind all golfers to rake sand. Greens generally in good shape and fast. we had strong winds making it very difficult. Excellent lay-out and very challenging. Golfers should play from the tee box corresponding to their handicap, there are too many playing from back tees and struggling making for a long delay. Overall an excellent course and a definite play again.

OCN Crooked Cat is a true golf experience. The course offers a challenging layout and is in outstanding shape from tee to green. Staff at OCN is friendly and helpful, particularly the starter, Mr. Beck. OCN Crooked Cat is well worth the price tag, and my husband and I plan on making a return visit soon.

The best last day of 2017. The weather was perfect for golf, High 60's low 70's sunny and very little wind.

The course has ample practice facilities, Natural grass driving range, Ample Sand and Pitching areas and practice greens. 4 singles signed up to play at 10:30, No one knew each other and by the end of the round we were all friends bound by a great round of golf and a very nice and well maintained course that had true and straight greens. Perfect ending for the year!

The pace of play was terrible, we asked for help from the ranger several times but they couldn't move it forward and we had a 5+ hour round. Until they can get their pace of play under control I won't be heading back without getting the first tee time of the morning.

Joined as a single and from the second I stepped out of the car I was treated very well. Got placed with 3 other singles, were not pushed nor pushing anyone (bliss for a 1030 tee time) and thoroughly enjoyed the round. The course was challenging without being gimmicky (assuming you play from the correct tees :0)
