Keeps getting better

Panther Lake is a great layout and can be quite challenging. The tees and fairways are in good shape. The rough is manageable and fair. The greens on Panther Lake are excellent. They roll fast and true (getting ready for the Korn Ferry Championship next week). As a side note the greens on Crooked Cat are good but not nearly as good as Panther Lake. The course was as wet as I have seen it but still very playable and only had a couple of holes that where Cart Path Only. The Orange County courses seem to drain better than any other course in town. I always look forward to playing OCN. I only wish they extended there best discount to Seminole County as well.

5-stars from start to finish

From the start, the staff at Orange County National was tremendous! The first employee we met upon dropping off our bags was extra courteous, and let us know they were preparing Panther Lake for a Korn Ferry event, so be ready for slightly higher rough and faster greens. A super helpful tip, because both came to be true. Pace of play was awesome all day. Tees, fairways, rough, greens all in perfect 10/10 condition. Layout challenging yet fair. Green complexes challenge you to be on the correct level of the green, and reward that with birdie opportunities. Absolutely will revisit Orange County National on our next venture to the Orlando area. Most likely to check out both courses. Great job all around to everyone at Orange County National!!

Always a great place to golf

Course is close to 5-Star. Tee boxes a bit thin & greens need to heal from aeration a bit more. Still some sand on top. Bunkers need raking as many players don’t even try to fix their damage. Had to wait for a Manager to get GOLFPASS perks as pro shop staff was untrained on benefits. Small hassle but can’t update be avoided. Staff here is typically top-notch.

One of Central Florida’s best

Professionally run in every way. Even the course maintenance crews are courteous. OCN is always one of my top choice places to play.

Could be a favorite

The whole course was in very good condition. There was some sand on the greens but it didn’t hurt the putting. I had trouble because not used to fast greens. Very pretty course and quite long but also very wide so it was hard to find yourself in trouble. Long drive from East Orlando but convenient to tourist area so if your on vacation don’t miss this one.
