Generous fairways made this course conquerable. Tees were a little shaggy. Greens were awesome and were 10.5-11 on the stimpmeter. Water on many holes but just soso challenging for an advanced golfer. Loved the layout and the people. They have 36 at this location and first time playing the Orange. Would definitely go back.

I would rank this as one of the best courses I have played and not just in the USA. Apparently it has just been renovated and everything was in perfect condition. The spacing between the flights was generous, as if the management knew that most players would take those extra few seconds or so on each of the somewhat difficult holes. One of our playing partners in the flight was a European PGA pro teacher and he effused a number of times as to the overall beauty of the course. It is not cheap, but for an extra $10-15 per head the pleasure of playing this course is more than worth it.

Well had a 11:15 tee time. Was bumped to 11:45 without notice because a member called and wanted my tee time after it was made and aid for. Really wouldn't have been a problem if I had NOTICE. Then the driving range is closed as well. Kind of hard to believe in this day and age they couldn't have sent me an email or text or call to inform me of new tee time. Then the cashier and starter laughed about it. PLEASE!

I will start by saying that the course itself if great. One of my favorites. However, we were constantly harassed about pace of play by the staff. It really killed the experience. I can understand people looking for balls and such but we were doing none of that. Two of us are scratch golfers. Outside of running to the green, leaving the pin in, not lining up putts and playing 10 foot gimmees I have no idea how we could play any faster. It is a tough course at 7100 yards. It's not something you just fly through Willy Nilly. That needs to be taken into consideration. I was very disappointed and it has me wondering if l will ever go back. Feeling rushed and constantly looking over your shoulder for a lurking ranger is no way to play golf.

May is the month Floridians wait for to enjoy the cool month of reciprocals. Took 24 players to Verandah to play the Nicklaus designed Whispering Oaks. Many had not seen the course before and were impressed and challenged by the design. The course was in great shape and did not show the effects of the drought we have been suffering. Greens rolled true and were a comfortable speed.

The highlight of the outing was the service of the staff that began at the bag drop, carried on into the pro shop, and the 19th hole crew at Blossoms Cafe; who somehow figured out how to handle our large crew and another large group of lady kayakers who arrived at the same time. Verandah is unique in that sense and a very nice community from that standpoint.

To a person, everyone asked when they might be able to return and play the second 18, Old Orange. Coincidentally the general manager stopped by to say thank you for coming to the club at this time, so I passed along the request. That review is identical to this one under Old Orange. You can't miss with either course. They are both enjoyable and you can set the level of challenge with a choice of 5 tees.

Thank you to the staff for a great experience.

Verandah Old Orange is a terrific golf course. Great layout, super fast greens (12), that rolled beautifully, plus a very well conditioned Course, make it a must play. Great variety of holes and great greens really made playing here an A+ experience. Our cost was $90 per player which was well worth it. If you are serious about golf, I absolutely recommend playing this Course. You will NOT be disappointed.
