Had booked hot deal tee time online about 2 weeks before flying to Orlando. We had to change accommodations that day so I had to cancel the tee time. I called the course and cancelled 2 days before. They said to call customer support at golf now. GolfNow doesn’t have anyone anymore to take your call and discuss your unique situation but instead a recording tells you to edit your reservation online. My reservation did not appear online although a previous one did so I had no way of informing GolfNow of my problem. The whole focus at present seems to be encouraging everyone to buy the Golf Pass. Is my prepaid green fees for two plus fees and tax to be refunded at least in part even though the course knew 48 hours before of the cancellation? Shouldn’t there still be someone to talk to?

Completely Overated

Staff were unfriendly from the start Pro Shop were rude Bag guys were rude, starter was ok. The pace of play was pathetic took over 5 hours behind 1 three ball that looked as if they had never played before. No Marshall's to be seen at all a complete discrace to the Legend that is Arnold Palmer.
We travelled from the UK and love golf in Florida but would not play here again if it was free

Another Great Day at Orange Lake Legends

With so many courses full this time of year it was a comforting & pleasant surprise to get a decent tee time at OL. I just played there a couple of months ago so wasn't looking to return on that 1 3/4 hr trip but the course never lets me down so I couldn't pass it up. Once more conditions were excellent,staff was great and the weather was the best in over a month. Take a ride out to Legends and enjoy all that they offer. Golf in Florida,in the winter, isn't much better than this.

Tight lies.

The course was in pretty good shape. The fairways are very tight. The greens rolled very well about a 10. The front nine is much more open than the back nine. Today the pins we tucked on the edges of every green making an up and down tough if u missed on the short side. Bunkers are in good shape.

Orange Lake Legends

Great variety of holes, lots of water, fast greens and well placed bunkers. Greenskeeper has done a wonderful job. To score I need to think my way around this course. From the right tees this course will be a fair test of golf for each level of golfer. Great day of golf with two new friends from Ohio.

First Time

Very nice layout, the course can be stretched for the pro's, we teed off the whites, which were very challenging with the wind and it being cold. The cart girl came round 3 times to cater too us.
I am looking forward to playing it again in good warmer weather.

Good Walking 9 Hole Course

This is a good Par 3 golf course with plenty of challenges. Well taken care of course, but could use some additional signage for following the paths. Will definitely be back!

Good Pace For A Change

We attend the PGA Show every year and stay in a villa at Orange Lake. We did play this course regularly until a few years ago when it was managed by Integrity Golf and got very run down. It has been back in good form the past few years. The greens were smooth and I stimped one and it was 8.5. The pace of play here is usually an issue but today we teed of at 12:06 and finished in just under 4 hours which is great. Weekend golf here is usually very slow. My colleagues even replayed the front 9. There was a minor problem at the start. I dropped my clubs at the club drop and parked my car. When I arrived back at the club drop my clubs were already on a cart so I attached my GPS holder to the cart, tossed on my laser, and went to the proshop to check in. When I returned to the clubdrop my clubs were back on a stand and the cart with my GPS holder and laser was gone. Fortunately the cart boys managed to recover my property and all turned out OK except that I didn't play the 1st hole.

Orange Lake Legends

Awesome golf course, tees, greens, fairways ,rough and sand traps. Greens keeper has done a great job..Each hole can stand on its own, lots of water and great variety in the type of holes. Played 3 times this week, the first time in 3 years. The greens were just top dressed and still played well. One off the nice courses in this area, A mature course which demands respect and some thought as to where you wish to place your shots. I would include the Legends as a course to play in the Orlando area.

Legends are made at orange lake

Showed up early to hit some range balls, we were asked if we wanted to get off early but were in no way rushed, which we did after a little practice. we eventually caught a twosome who were excellent golfers in every aspect of the game who were slowed by a three some who were struggling a bit at times. We backed off and took some extra hits and had a wonderful enjoyable game at a terrific course with terrific employees and patrons. Life is good.

No regrets ...but

Played legends course on a Sat afternoon with a 1:40 tee time. Walk ups also buying tee times and then with no starter on duty it was every man for himself on first tee - with my group waiting about 15 minutes for “our turn”. Course has some really nice holes - especially on the back nine. Greens in good (not great) condition. Bunkers ok. We ran our of light so could not finish and as we drove off came to find 7 players on 18th green ....having a putt off or similar.

So, overall course was pretty good, but complete absence of any on course staff (eg starter) was a bit off putting
