Overall good experience

Only complaint was pace of play, it's listed on the card that four and a half hours is the expected pace which is an absolute joke. This is only listed that way so that people don't have a legitimate complaint about standing and waiting on every single shot. Tee times are scheduled every 8 minutes so this causes backups all the time and the slow pace. I would only recommend this course to anyone that's willing to get out early ahead of the crowd.

Disney area busy so way over charge

Just as my title reads, it is a 20-25$ 18 holes at best!!!
The course layout is cool, but the starter was rude, and the fairways are dry, and worst of all the greens needed to be cut and were full of weeds. I will not return. Better courses in the area for similar $$$

Orange Lakes Reserve Course - Nice Track

A very nice layout with enough water to make it difficult for the first timer. Local knowledge would have helped immensely. Not a fan of playing through a resort. Only hit a screen door once. :-) Played the white tees hoping for 6000 yards. But all tees moved up which led to many 300 yard par 4s. Not a ton of driver holes. Still, tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens in great shape. A pleasant round. Decent value given it's March and prices are high.

The Reserve

Very short course, which leads to slow play. Fairways were in poor condition, lots of spots with no grass. Not great for those of ya who like to play the ball without rolling it.

Staff from pro shop to starter were friendly and helpful.

Saw Gators

The staff was friendly, the course was in good shape, we got to see a couple of alligators and were very happy about that. Our only complaint would be not enough bathrooms along the course (unless we just missed them.) Would play here again.

Busy time of year

All as expected. Bever expect a quick 18 in Florida between Christmas and Easter. Played the Reserve many times and love the design. Good condition considering the wear and tear.

Not a bad course. But difficult to find

I missed my tee time by 3 minutes and pushed me back a half an hour. Difficult to find you pay for your round in the marketplace.

A bit wonky

Greens and tees in poor condition. Villas are lined up on every fairway. Villa are not attractive. Staff were friendly and competent. All said, the green fees are not high and most likely matches the course quality.

Expected Better

Regular price would have been $94 - this is NOT a $94 course! We got spoiled playing most courses down here with overseeded rye fairways, which were lush and green. Here, all dormant Bermuda grass. Some patch greens. Overall, the layout was very nice, great people, pace was decent on the front nine and turned into a crawl on the back nine. No ranger so the pace just slowed. Challenging greens and they did role nice.

Fair price and a nice course layout

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The course layout is interesting if slightly flawed on a couple of holes. There is a par 3 where you must return to the tee to get to the next hole. That is both dangerous and there is not enough room to pass the waiting golfers. Another hole has very poor signing for the white and longer tees. Otherwise, it was a nice track. Our group would give it an overall 3, not 4 star rating. The standard fee is fair for this course. It was a fun day and the greens were very nice with consistent speed from hole to hole.

A good way to spend the afternoon

I enjoyed my round at the Reserve at Orange Lake. The layout is excellent with a wide variety of holes. The course always seems to be in great shape and well maintained. Will definitely play it again.
