Played WOCC for the first time last Saturday My kids take golf lessons with Brendon Chase every Friday, but I've never had the chance to play. Thankfully my buddy joined and invited us for the first time last weekend.

Course and greens were in good shape. We had a great time and would definitely love to play it again.

Played this course a week ago and didn't have a great experience. The manager called me after and assured me that what I experienced was not norm. He invited me to play again and I did. Our round took 2 1/2 hrs and we did not rush. Course was in very nice shape. Tough, true greens and beautiful fairways. I cannot say enough good things about the course and it's people, including management. Thanks George for a great golfing experience.

A great private country club with a long history in the West Orange County area. Course is an anomoly for central Florida with tree lined fairways and easy to walk. Always in excellent shape. Fast and true greens. Multiple member games each day for all skill levels. Fellowship can't be beat. Many athletic and social amenities, including tennis, swimming, dining and bar. Chef Michelle and the entire staff are magnificent. A true departure from slow, daily fee golf. No tee times and rounds are typically 3 to 3.5 hours. Truly a hidden gem in Winter Garden.

I have lived in West Orange County for 13 years and could not believe the quality and improvements that this course have undergone in the past 12 Months. I loved it so much I joined the club in February of this year.

The Course is always in fantastic condition the greens are beautiful, putting on these greens gets you spoiled, they are fast with plenty of break. Fairways, tee boxes, practice area, all TOP NOTCH. But Pace of Play is one of the reasons I love it so much, the members have multiple games going most days, and I have played in foursomes that have finished in about 3 hours.

After your round the grill has great food and friendly staff that have been with the club for years. I think it says something when a staff has been in their same job for years about how they are treated by their employers. However, the best thing about the club is how family friendly the place is. My wife, children, and I are making some wonderful memories and we all are so happy we have such a great place to enjoy.

West Orange is a neat and friendly private club without the air of a the typical "private " club. Very family friendly and always in great shape, this is a club where you don't need a tee time! Good food and generous drinks add to the value.

If you live or work in west Orange County then you should be a member here. The club is family friendly and the facilities are top notch when you consider its non-pretentious atmosphere. The golf course is in excellent shape and well maintained, the pool area has been refreshed and the staff is friendly and courteous.

First time player @ WOCC & it won't be the last! If you're looking for a new course to play (like I always am) or someone visiting to get an idea on courses to play you won't be disappointed with this one. Not your fancy, high level resort type of course with a lot of WOW factors. It's just a solid, well kept course which offers an enjoyable round in a nice setting. I got a 11:00 time and had most of the course for myself as a single. Breezed through and had ample time to work on my game. Great price, friendly staff led to a stress free day. The only catch to possibly watch for is the lack of cement cart paths throughout the course. There are a few holes where you'll need to pay attention to layout as there are no cart paths on certain holes. No biggie as it's pretty simple to figure out. Highly recommended

This course is laid out nicely. Course is much better than some area courses for minimum fees. Greens are in good shape with average speeds. Fairways on this day where soggy in a few places; I think there was morning rain left over. Was upset over there water kegs. None of them where more than luke warm water; almost to the point of just spitting it out. Not good for 90 degree temps. The course is compact and narrow; keep your ball in play or loose in water hazards. Sand bunkers could use new sand; Tight and compacted hard to hit from. Sunday afternoon round single went well 2 & half hour round. Only 1 backup they allowed me to play through.

I know golf and grass are synonymous but I have found many places to not be so lush. The grass was beautiful everywhere and though I couldn't read the greens it was not their fault LOL. We actually played two rounds. I would get a membership but was informed new owners/management was taking over and that is not alway a good thing. Until I find a reason to not go back it is in my top three favorites from Texas to Florida.

As a former North Carolinian, this course reminds me a lot of the old courses in Raleigh and the Sandhills area around Pinehurst. Not much in terms of elevation changes (this is Florida), but the fairways were in good shape and the greens for the most part putted true. The defense of this course are some doglegs, traps, pine-tree lined fairways that are not as open as many of the resort courses, and undulating greens that make you think about your short pitch shots and putts. As a "member for a day" I got range balls, teed off as a single at 3:30, and finished a little after 5:30 - I saw other players on the course, but never caught anybody or waited on any shot. Some may complain about the lack of signage and the fact that the majority of the cart "paths" are not paved, but my rating is on the actual golf course itself and on whether I would play again and/or bring somebody with me the next time. I will do both at West Orange.
