Great day!! Must play!!

Played the course in 3 hours 15 minutes. Did not encounter anybody else until hole 16. Course is a fun layout. Tee boxes, fairways, traps and greens in awesome shape. Lots of wildlife to be seen. Only complaint is finding the course on property.

Great course and even better staff

The course was great I really enjoyed playing it. Enough room to miss and still be able to play and some demanding shots into greens to be very interesting. Kudos to Roger the course marshal. He was the best I have ever encountered. When it slowed down to some play in front after 8 & 9, he came over and talked about how frustrating slow play can be an offered to let me go replay the front 9 since no one was playing there then resume the back nine when the slow groups were finished. This unbelievable service. I wish every course had marshals like Roger. He not only understood what was happening and did everything he could to make it better. Not just sit and watch. I went away after my round happy as I could be and not with a sour taste in my mouth from pace of play.

Great layout!

Fun course design. Lots of trouble but plenty of room to play away. Good risk reward. First impression at bag drop and pro shop were less than impressive. Got better with the starter who was great and the cart guy post round. Drink cart was good too. Greens were true and moderately fast. Good same in bunkers. Would definitely play again.

Lots of Sand traps

Although first time playing the course found it to be very challenging. Lots of Sand both bunkers and waste areas. Need to play more than once to get a real feel for the course. Par 3's very challenging and mostly all care to the green.

Good place to go

I have played this course many times and must say that it is in good condition. Tee boxes are mostly very good, as well as the fairways. Bunkers would need some attention. Greens were good but a little too slow. The pace was rather to slow – we played in the afternoon and expected it faster as there were twosomes in front of us only… Overall it is a good place to go, with some challenges. The twilight rate is very good.

Good course

Greens run true, tee blocks and fairways are good.. Well conditioned and well designed course. Friendly and helpful staff. As with most Florida courses no rangers are used and a 5 some of weak golfers encountered on back nine was a disaster. They were oblivious to holding up the entire course with three groups waiting on each tee as a result and this on a day when the course wasn't busy. This will need to be addressed or there will be repercussions.. Hopefully it is a one off but how would anyone know without a ranger. I have seen courses who didn't address this end up closing.

Greens

This course used to be fantastic, but the greens are in poor shape compared to the rest of the course. Based on other courses in the area not worth the rate.

In addition, the driving range was also in poor condition. Not sure if it's due to overplay or weather, but was disappointed compared to other times I have played this site in previous years.I rarely write reviews, but feel.based on the winter rate it's relevant.

Greens are fast

Good conditions, nice layout and the fastest greens I have encountered of the courses played this month. Lots of carry shots over water and you have to play strategically on this course.

Blind shots

Conditions were good but no better than the Reserve course which was $30 less. Greens were fast but didn’t hold approach shots very well. There was a lot of blind tee shots or tee shots where there was danger of hitting through fairways if you didn’t know the course. However some very interesting holes which would be more rewarding to play for the second time.

Played a month ago. Conditions are acceptable. Greens very very fast. I played with 3 ladies that played well. We had a blast. Course was packed and backed up. 5 hour round. It was ok because the ladies were good players.

Orange Lake Legends Disappointment

I had played Orange Lake in the past and it was in great shape. I put The Legends on our golf schedule with friends and were we disappointed.. The driving range was in terrible shape.. We had to wait for golf balls.The practice putting green has a disease tat was seen on most of the greens. After playing hole #1, we proceeded to hole #2 where there were 4 groups all on #2. One on the green, one on the fairway and 2 groups waiting to tee off including our 3 some..I called into the pro shop to let them know they need to send out a Marshall which they said they would. No one showed. The fairways and greens were in poor condition and the round took almost 5.5 hours. The Legends will no longer be on our schedule of courses to play. I highly recommend Reunion golf courses and Orange County as the best courses for play as well as well maintained.
