Excellent course and facility.

A very fun course to play with a lot of variety. The only thing to be aware of is that the carts do not have GPS. The staff were very friendly and this is a course worth driving a few extra miles to play.

Great track

Excellent layout, a combination of very challenging holes with a handful of breathers for the average player to enjoy. Greens were a little dry but that matches the weather, fairways were solid. Being a South Florida golfer, it's a great thrill to find a course not surrounded by condos and houses.

Orange County Is Phenomenal

Orlando in the summer is hot - no doubt about that. I was impressed with how lush the course conditions are. Green every, the fairways were tightly mowed, the putting surface was pure and smooth - probably rolled around a 10 on the stimpmeter. My buddy and I had an afternoon tee time and for the most part, had the course to ourselves. We played 18 holes in 3 hours 20 minutes.

The course/staff is doing all they can to help keep their employees and golfers as safe as possible with social distancing measures. Well done OCN - looking forward to my next round. 5/5 would recommend!

Played the green tees (6,400):
72 & 76 - not bad!

Play OCN if you want to die from COVID-19

Three of the four people who MUST be wearing masks at a golf course were NOT: cart staff, starter, beverage cart person. Only the inside staff person was wearing a mask. Not to mention there is a MANDATE for wearing masks in public in Orange County. Really, folks? Have you heard that we're in a global pandemic? Or maybe every course is this lax? First time I've played in four months. Guess I won't be giving my money to the golf industry any time soon. You would think OCN would be setting the standard for safety. You would be wrong!

Panther Lake

Excellent layout. Green were punched 2 weeks ago. Still not fully healed. A little slow and bumpy. Otherwise, an excellent course.
