Historical Donald Ross course was challenging around the exceptionally maintained green complexes and very fair off the tee while still providing the feel of a tree-lined fairway. Good mix of doglegs, long & short par3s. Halfway house had great food and quick and always feel that Southern Hospitality. A very nice Country Club experience.

CCO provides for a great day of golf - the course is not too difficult for higher handicap golfers, but provides enough challenge for golfers of all skill levels. The course is always in impeccable shape and the club's commitment to customer service is evident. Great golf club, highly recommended.

Best course in Orlando for my taste. Great pace of play, walker friendly, exceptional staff, classic design, fast greens. If you get the opportunity, this is a must play. For members, the best family club in Orlando.

If you are a Donald Ross fan and have an invitation to play Country Club of Orlando then by all means take up the offer.  My son and I recently played on an ideal day. We love to walk with trolleys and in Orlando, CCO is one of the few courses where that is an option. Sad...because that's my favorite way to play.  CCO can be set up to challenge, but on most days it's all about fun. You better be sharp on and around the greens as you'll be faced with pitches from flat lies on tightly mown areas to raised greens.  This is a golf course that rewards thoughtful play.  Conditioning, tree  management, beauty, staff, walk in park, all get A plus from me."

Where to start, the golf course is very well manicured and there isn't blade of grass out of place. The golf course offers its challenges, the fairways are tree lined, but there is some room to miss a tee shot. The par 3's are great as they all provide a different length and head toward different directions. A unique blend of straight holes, doglegs, and scenery will make you want to come back every day.

If you've had a chance to play any Donald Ross golf courses, Country Club of Orlando will feel very familiar. CCO is a classic Ross design in a few key ways:
- great walking course (tees are a short walk from greens);
- small greens;
- natural use of local topology;
- minimal man-made mounding;
- visual trickery, use of tee box alignment to guide you away from best spots
CCO is a great country club, offering all of the amenities (fine dining, pool, locker rooms, etc) that you would expect from a high-end establishment.


Player Tip: Classic Northeast feel in the middle of Orlando. Great walking golf course with true country club vibe.

I love Country Club of Orlando. Well, I love all Donald Ross courses but CCO is really special. The location in Orlando makes it a hidden gem as well.
I had a USGA qualifier here so the set-up was long but it was still great. The greens are big and roll perfectly. The bermuda grass can be challenging around the greens but that's Donald Ross for you. Stay below the hole...
The par 5's here give you a break so I would advise making birdie here is possible. CCO is great for walking because the holes are parallel to one another. Overall, it's a great course if you can find your way on it. There's also an awesome short game area hidden towards number 11.
Great food, great course, play there!
