Awesome, per usual

We played Panther Lake and it was great, as it normally is. This is my favorite place in/around Orlando and it never disappoints. After checking in, Our group even saw a HOF baseball player who was very friendly. THAT was a great start to the round!!!

Millionaire’s Golf

Arrived early for my start time and was met with a warm welcome by the guys on the bagdrop. Immediately given a golf cart and allowed to wander over to the practice putting area. Met my playing partner on the first tea and was introduced by the starter to each other. Starter had a wonderful sense of humour and very informative. The two of us played a steady round and enjoyed it. Wonderful course with challenging holes in perfect condition. I’ve played a lot of courses in Fl over the years and this is best. Many thanks to all at OCN and my playing partner Joe from Long Island. Great day. Best regards Dave M

true gem

The Panther Course lived up to it's billing as a must play in the Orlando area. Although the par 5's were on the shorter side, they were still fun and challenging. Overall the course was lush and the greens were well manicured, rolled true and were devoid of the ball marks so typical of public play courses

Great layout. Fair but precise golf shots needed. Greens fast but true. Always windy so lots of club adjustments. Would happily play again.

Very disappointed

Course is always a must play when we are in the USA.
Really disappointed that no mention of greens being punched and top dressed with sand on GolfNow.
Only found out when we checked in at pro shop.
We have flown 5000 miles and don’t like playing greens that are not up to standard.

Thank you for taking the time to review us! Please call the pro shop at (407) 656-2626 ext. 2210 prior to your round to inquire if either course has had scheduled maintenance. We take pride in our course conditions but that does require some maintenance from time to time!

Outstanding

“The Panther” is the Best course I have played since I moved to Florida back in 1999.
The greens were a bit bumpy because of maintenance but better than most of the courses I usually played.

This is a must play if you are visiting Orlando

A fun course to play

I found Panther's Lake a fun course to play. Most of the hole are not too intimidating. Some traps are strategically placed but most of the fairways are relatively wide allowing you to bail out to a safe spot. Some holes were playing significantly shorter than normal which made the course more playable.

Nice Course

The fairways and greens were in very good condition. Cart paths are smooth and holes are well marked. Pace of play was good. Drinks on cart were too pricey, otherwise everything good. Got a great deal,, otherwise regular green fees would be a little high.

Pace Of Play Of 4 Hours And 12 Minutes?

Called phone in number to inform them 4 groups were on the 6th hole at panther lake. Never seen a Marshall. Tee time was at 318. Actually went out 5 minutes early. It's now 706PM and still have 5 holes to play. Your new pace of play of 4 hours and 12 minutes needs to be enforced or you will loose paying customers. group behind us gave up and left. Said they would never return
