Wonderful round of golf at Orange County national

I was paired with 3 other excellent golfers and we played crooked cat under a sunny day. The course was in great conditions, the greens roll well. The pace of play as perfect, we have never waited on any holes.
This is a day of golf everyone of us has enjoyed. I hope I will be back to play this course again.

Great golf complex

Played both courses (Crooked Cat and Panther Lake) over two days. Courses are both excellent layouts and in very good condition. Ranger is diligent about groups maintaining pace of play (4-41/2 hours). Highly recommend both, particularly if a florida resident, as rate is much cheaper.

ImmersionGolf

This place is all golf, done right. CC is a great layout, play from the right tees and you can really enjoy yourself. The lodge is simple and perfect for what we all want to do: roll out of bed and onto an awesome course. The practice facility is expansive, so say the least, and if you want to play 9 short holes you can do that too if you’re willing to put up with the beginners and lessons that will hold you up. You are better off utilizing the other practice facilities, but if you stay at the lodge you play it for free.
Some rough spots on the fairways and the greens were slower than some other elite public courses in the area, but overall this place is a must play when you are in the Orlando area, and you can catch a good bargain if you plan it right. Highly recommended.

Crooked Cat

Awsome golf course. Played in three hours after tournament. Course was green, rough, fairways, tees and greens. Greens were large, true, fast and the putts rolled out. All staff were professional and very helpful. Like both courses, equal well. After the tournament, the pin placement were a fair challenge. If your in Orlando try to play Crooked Cat and Panther Creek. Keep up the great work.

Great Experience

Had a really great time playing Crooked Cat! The course is challenging but not ridiculously hard that a semi experienced golfer like me could enjoy a round.

Overpriced

We played the course today, my personal opinion is it is very overpriced. The fairways and greens were in poor condition and the options for food and hospitality at the turn were that of a public municipal course. I expect a level of service when paying $135 for a round of golf and today I felt taken advantage of.

ALWAYS A GREAT CHOICE

Crooked Cat and it’s sister course at Orange County National, Panther Lake, never fail to impress and yesterday was no different. Crooked Cat was in great shape with the greens exceptionally fast and impeccably smooth. A few of the the par 3 tees were a little chewed up but not enough to ruin an otherwise terrific playing experience. Although green fees are inflated this time of year, so are the fees at all the other courses in the area which means OCN’s Crooked Cat is still a good value. This is a tough course so just make sure you don’t bite off more than you can chew by playing tees longer than your skills can handle!

Condition

Overall the course is a great layout. Maintenance and conditions were less than desirable. With some TLC this course would be rated much higher and more people would play. The cost was average but the conditions were well below.

We don't want your kind around here

That's how it felt playing both the Crooked Cat and Panther Lake golf course. From the start of the day, the staff here was extremely rude, not accommodating, and flat out made our group of 12 who cumulatively just spent over $4000 in one day at their golf course feel like we were not wanted around. We were pressured to speed up throughout the day by the starter however when we turned around to see who was behind us shooting our approach shot on a par 4, there was NO ONE behind us! She rudely interrupted us while we were setting up to shoot to tell us that they are going to have us skip a hole, remind you there was no one in sight behind us. When we told her that there was no one behind us, she said they were just being respectful so they were playing slow. Then literally two holes later, another starter came to us to tell us that we sped up and are back on pace. Makes no sense. So then for lunch before our second round. The extremely rude waitress, who automatically gets an 18% tip, decided to tell a person in our group that "I'm busy, if you want water the water station is over there." This was after the fourth time he asked for water. If she said that the first time there wouldn't be any gripe but his food was done and then she said that. When he wanted his change, she brought him all pennies to further insult him. We all felt like this course was extremely racist and didn't want our people there. We were a group of Romanians and Chaldeans from Michigan so I get we're not locals, but if they had a pitch fork I have a feeling like we wouldn't of made it out alive.
