I went to golf after heavy showers the night before. I was told the east course was the worst of the club's two courses but It was great they must have had good drains. I image the west course being much better

Greens are okay, some need work. Tee box have patches of sand and uneven, and some fairways need work as well. Not work 45 bucks at 10am

The man who "greeted" us was not so nice. Said we did not have a reservation, then found it on his computer. Was charging us an incorrect amount and just not nice or welcoming. The starter had the same attitude.

We will not be returning.

From the moment I walked into the pro shop, I could tell this was an extremely unprofessional environment. I went to check in one hour before my teetime as I wanted to hit range balls. They would not give me a cart for my clubs as they said they had no carts. But the teatime through Teeoff.com for $24 for 18 holes with the cart. The people in front of me and behind me paid 19.46 for their golf fee. The attitude of the people at this course was something I had never experienced in 45 years of golfing. Both of our carts ran out of electricity before the end of the round.

very disappointed with the course- greans were in poor condition - fairway grass growing on the greens.

The fairway greens were non-existent. You had to find patches of fairway grass in which to drop your balls on else you would be hitting from dirt. It had rain a couple of days prior to our play so we saw a lot of mud in the fairways. Worst course I've played in so far in South Florida and I have played in over 15 courses.

Liked everything about course and service except the fairways. Hardly any grass in Fairways. Gets a lot of play but they still should be able to improve on Fairways.

We were a little late getting started club extremely busy at 2pm. Not sure why perhaps a small tournament of friends.

The staff was very curtious and got us out as soon as possible. Coarse was good a few dry spots but to be expected.

Well worth the Golf now rate we paid. Would definitely go back.

Orangebrook has always been one of my favorite places to play.....both courses.

we've been coming here from New England for 20 years....but the last couple have been only to see poor greens.

its good to read the recent reviews which have complimented the greens. have they made a turnaround? which course has the better greens?

we're coming down again in March and would love to play both courses if there has been improvement.

any feed back would be greatly appreciated.......See you in March!!
