One of the best in Orlando!

Course as always in great condition. Not very satisfied about the fact that the halfway house was closed and we did not see the Beveridge cart once. That’s not good! They should know better that golfers need a drink and something to eat at some point during a round of golf.

I am a lazy guy, so do not write review at all. But after today’s round at Orange County National, I have to say something. Both the staff and the golfers on this course don’t know there is “ playing pace” ever exist.

A golf round starts with a 15 minutes wait on first tee, and 15 minutes on each every shots during the round is insane.

The 4 older people in front of me is here for fishing and hunting golf balls, not for golf. The staff never step in to do anything. 6 hours for a round took all the joy of golf away.

This place dead to me.

Very nice

I only gave 2 stars for layout because of the following reason.

I like to play a course over 6000 yards. I was a single and was set up with 3 other guys. The whites were posted at 6011 yards. and the next tee back was around 6300 so I was fine playing whites. Until I noticed the white tees were ALL moved up. I was playing 400 yard par 5s. Almost every tee was moved forward almost all the way to the red tees. As a result I was only able to hit 3 drivers off the tee all day. Lots of 3 irons off the tee, and 9 irons and wedges to the greens The course layout is good, I just bothered me about the tees.

One interesting thing, on the back 9, they have 3 par 3s, 3 par 4s, and 3 par 5s. Different.

Manageable layout

Overall good experience. A single in a third cart joined the foursome in front of our group in the middle of the front nine and played through the ninth and then disappeared. Curious.

Panther Lake Oct 2019

Course has a good layout, it was in good condition throughout. A good variation of tee boxes. However the pace of play was really slow, we were just over 4 hours 30 minutes, on a number of holes we were actually on the next tee, the group in front were still teeing off. The course ranger did not appear to have any influence on the groups if they were told to speed up. Becasue there is an acceptance that 4.5 hours is OK for a round of golf, us faster players suffer. With a gold cart 3.5 to 4 hours should be the standard set.

Played Panther course

Great course conditions and layout. Pace of play was excellent. How about some water barrels on the course for refilling. This is Florida isn’t it? Humidity heat. Almost drank the ball washer water.

Challenging, yet fair.

I love playing this course every time I get the chance. Tee time was early and first few holes were played in some dense fog, so hard to track the ball. After that the course was nearly perfect. Does not require extreme precision off the tee, but you can get into trouble quick. Got out of position on a few holes, but course still leaves you options to salvage your round. Practice facility as always is top notch, but they would not let us on there when we arrived, since it was dark. It left us feeling slightly rushed before out tee time, but we managed.
