Greens are in Great condition. Pace was spot on. Fairways lush. Great course. Drink cart frequently visited, even though we had our own refreshments that made in impression on us. Good lay out and contactless check in too.

Course is in great shape. Greens still not back to 100% from being punched, but overall the course was fantastic. We’ll be back for sure.

My Favorite

Played Panther Lake this date. Of all the courses I play in the Orlando area this is my favorite. I have been playing here for 25 years. It is always in excellent condition and the staff is always welcoming and friendly.

Great course - greens still sandy

Very challenging and great layout - I would play it differently the second time around. Lots of crowned greens. Greens currently very sandy from recent aeration so pretty slow and rolling true. For the level of course, I am very surprised they do not have GPS on the cart - that would help tremendously. Not so much with distances to the pin, but the shape of the holes and where to put tee shots

First time

Great layout.
Staff was super friendly and hospitable.
Course in very good shape.
Gets a lot of sun and hard to keep green.
Great par 3s, lots of sand, little water which is good.
Only lost 1 ball, so I’m happy.

Good conditions. Questionable Course Management

Had great early morning round. Pretty good condition all-around. Tees, fairways and greens in pretty good shape. Course Management decided 8:00 am on a Saturday morning was a good time to schedule an outing comprised of 8 players per group. No mention of an outing during check-in or during booking only when approaching starter on #1.. Was only held up on our last three holes but not the best timing on a Saturday morning. $$$.

Crooked Cat Course

The course was in pretty good shape. The staff in the pro shop were pleasant and efficient. The one thing that scored low for me was pace of play. I had to wait on each hole on the back nine while the ground crew changed the hole locations. To me this should have been done very early in the morning whereas to not effect players.
