Great to be back

It’s been about 10 years since I have played here and the course didn’t disappoint.

There was a bit of inconsistency on the greens but I’m being really picky. ( only because I lost at snakes)

Some lovely holes for golf and will definitely be on the list for next year !!

Good Course For Low Cap Players

Course was a great test of golf for a player who is a single digit handicap. Fairways are generous for all levels but the approach shots were interesting and required good distance control. Overall a well layed our course that I would recommend as long as the green fee in under $80. Though based on the few I paid to play, I was disappointed that you still had to pay for range balls. Not something I would expect from a course of this standard.

Nice course; poorly run

The course is one of the nicer layouts and offers a beautiful setting. Played it many times. There is a noticeable negative difference this year in the running of the course. The pro shop is sparsely stocked, the restaurant has closed, clubhouse cashier had to go out on the range and physically pickup balls himself to make 2 buckets of range balls, and they have an outside golf management company running the operations. Several bunkers had no rakes. The pace of play was unacceptably slow and one of the worst in memory. Even the cart girl lamented the slow play and was the target from many irate golfers. After 4 hours we left after the 14th hole. It was an overall terribly disappointing round of golf. We likely will not return.

Average at best

Slow play along with average course condition. The course is kind of boring and the greens were sparse. Many more courses in the area are a better value.

Very Nice

Kind of a hidden gem in the rear of the resort. Cassie, in the proshop, was very helpful and attentive. The carts are pretty new and the layout is not the typical Florida design. Overall very well done.

Name Sells the Course

Nothing really outstanding. It relies on the Palmer brand name. One of the holes #10 or #11 needs taller fringe and rough between the green and water. Playing partner hit a perfect chip from above the hole...ball went past the hole which is ok....but it rolled past the hole, through the fringe, through the "rough", and into the water = not ok! Very slow check-in process in the pro-shop. Line was 8 deep.

Good course in good shape

The Legends at Orange Lake Resort course is one of my favorites in the area. The course is in good shape tees through greens. The layout is interesting and challenging with several water hazards and fairway & greenside bunkers that necessitate thinking your way around the course. The starter is a great guy, and we were fortunate yesterday to experience one of our best pairings, which added to the enjoyment of our round. Although the course winds through the resort, the natural setting is nicely preserved. Unlike the Reserve Course, you're not distracted by walkers using the cart path - oblivious to the golf being played. It's a bit pricey compared to other "equal" courses nearby, but it's a fun course and I plan on playing it again before heading north.

Fun course

This course is great. Has a few challenging holes. Layout was great. ONLY BAD THING IS PACE OF PLAY. THERE WAS NO STARTER SO ITS A GO WHEN U WANT SITUATION. I RAN INTO A 7 SOME. THATS JUST TO MUCH . THEY HELD UP NUMEROUS GROUPS. THE PRO SHOP WAS CALLED WE NEVER SAW ANYONE COME OUT TO HELP MOVE THEM ALONG. THERE WAS A LOT OF WAITING AND UNFORTUNATELY ON A COURSE LIKE THIS THAT SHOULDN'T HAPPEN. Otherwise great day great course. Tee boxes great Green smooth n true. FAIRWAYS in great shape.

A mess of a day behind a group of 7

That's right a 7some. Called the pro shop and the guy working sounded very concerned and said the words I knew wouldn't end well "I'll send the starter out if he hasn't left yet, if he has I'll figure something out." Well as you can probably guess no one ever came out to deal with the 7some.

Don't waste your time here. Plenty of courses in the Orlando area to choose from that are better managed.

Open and Forgiving Fairways

Only issues was Legends Restaurant was closed so no hot food available...

Every tee box and fairways were perfectly maintained and playable.

Signature hole was scenic and ability to play was very workable.

Loved ALL of the par 3s as a challenge for me to step back to the Tips.

Will play again soon.

Pleasantly surprised

Pleasantly surprised with the conditions and layout of this course considering some of the negative reviews. Played at 2:30PM as a twosome and finished in 3 hours. I really enjoyed the round and would certainly play again.
