Demanding test of your complete game

It is no wonder why professional golfers of all stripes - PGA Tour, Web.com, Champions, LPGA Tour - seem to gravitate toward Orange Tree when they're in Orlando. If you can play well - especially tee to green - there, you should be ready for most any other test of golf. On the day I played, a number of LPGA Tour players were getting some practice in.

Orange Tree is one of the narrowest courses you'll find off the tee, with many holes playing longer than the yardage because they cause the cautious player to lay back off the tee for position's sake, lest one's ball fly beyond the OB stakes that line both sides of many holes. But if you can tack your way around well enough, there are birdie opportunities to be had, mostly owing to the pure, fast greens. Just make sure you're below the hole! The par 3s* are a main strength of the course, design-wise.

*I swear I'm not just saying this because I made a hole-in-one on the par-3 5th hole, but it doesn't hurt!

Truly A Great Experience

From the moment I walked into the clubhouse, the experience was top notch. The practice facility was in great shape and the greens were rolling quite nicely. The greens had some subtleties that would take a few rounds to get used to. Make sure you are on the right side of the hole. Also look at your putts from every side! The course conditions were second to none. The closing stretch of the "loop" was incredible. Make sure to bring your "A" game as the course is challenging, but it is very fair. If you course manage your way around, you can have a great day. The staff was great from the moment I walked into the shop, to meeting the head pro, to having brunch inside. A very memorable round and I look forward to going back and playing any chance I get. Highly recommend playing here if given the chance.

Fast and Undulated Greens

Played Orange Tree for an FSGA event. This course is extremely tight with out of bounds coming into play on all 18 holes. Most holes there is maybe 5-10 yards of rough and then out of bounds because of the homes along it. The greens were very quick, some of the quickest i have played in Florida, and rolled really well. It begins with two par 5's which is interesting from a routing standpoint.

Tight, but worth the challenge

Orange Tree is one of the best courses in the Orlando area. It's very narrow, but the course is in fantastic shape and the greens are phenomenal. The staff is excellent, and it makes for a great day of golf.

Tough but nice golf course

You may find this layout tight off the tees since a lot of property lines come close to course and a lot of out of bounds stakes in play. If you are a straight hitter then you can play well here.. Last 3 holes are good, challenging holes. Conditions are very good with some of the best greens in Orlando. The practice facilities leave a little to be desired but if you have a chance to play Orange Tree I would recommend it.

Orange Tree

This is one of the most challenging courses and best kept secrets in the state of Florida. Orange Tree is often overshadowed by its more notable neighbor Bay Hill, but is every bit the golf course Bay Hill is and in better condition. The Orange Tree greens were recently renovated and putt as well as any Bermuda grass surfaces in the state. If you need proof of an excellent golf course, ask the many PGA Tour, web.com Tour and LPGA Tour players who call Orange Tree home.

A True Test of Golf!

Orange tree is not ideal for beginning golfers. While there are multiple sets of tees, Orange Tree is extremely narrow with beautiful Champion Bermuda greens. This course will test all areas of your game and reward good play. Definitely recommend this course if you can get out there while in Orlando. The staff is really friendly and the pace of play is always great.

Best Kept Secret in Central Florida

Orange Tree is a diamond in the rough. Owned and operated by the Wisney's (sp) of Detriot, MI. These owners really know how to set up and maintain a golfing facility. They staff their facility with the finest personnel and cater to the needs of the course/people. Orange Tree is also one of the most challenging courses in the area. PGA pro's such as Tiger Woods, Bubba Watson, and many more find themselves preparing for majors at Orange Tree due to the narrow fairways and challenging layout. If you have the opportunity to play I would highly recommend it. Make sure you bring a few extra Titleist's.... You'll probably need them during the stretch from 1-18.
