The course at the Orange Tree Golf Resort provides an excellent game of golf in a luxurious setting. The Parkland-style layout features fairways lined with mature trees, which not only enhance the natural beauty of the golf course but can also greatly affect shots. Four lakes are situated on the flat terrain of the course, providing water hazards that come into play on five holes. Sand bunkers also surround every green. Orange Tree Golf Resort's course finishes with its signature hole, where water cuts into the fairway and proceeds to run down the left side all the way to the green. It also requires accuracy on the approach shot in order to hit the small putting surface that is surrounded by tricky elements.

Judging by the expensive homes on the course, I’m guessing this golf course was once better maintained. It needs som investment to bring it back.

Everyone knows marshals can be annoying but they should not be disrespectful. They should also know that when someone is in the middle of their back swing they should not buzz by within 20 ft of the tee box in their gas powered golf cart. But that doesn't seem to be a concern here at Orange tree. Not only is the marshall rude he was oblivious to the way he was distracting golfers. Also if you are going to have snack bar it would be nice to have something to eat besides hot dogs..

The Orange Tree golf course is a lovely, mature resort style course that is well maintained and fun to play. I felt that it was a good value. What I don't understand is that with all the options available in the area why our group of two foursomes were made to feel anything but welcome. From the starter to the the marshalls we got nothing but grumpy and surly treatment. And the concessions at the turn were amateurish at best. Adequate but much less than you might expect from such a well established course. All in all I would recommend the course for playability and value but don't expect to be pampered.

The layout is nice and the fairways were ok but the greens were kind of a joke. They were bumpy and just worn out. For $63 a round, I was expecting better. There are other courses that charge less that have waaaaaaaaaaaay better greens. Might golf here again for less but not full fare. Pace of play was great and staff was friendly.

What a great course with very challenging greens. Would have enjoyed it more if someone was monitoring the group ahead of us and had them pick up the pace. Will go back again as the course itself is very kept up and fun.

A mature course to be sure, but kept up in every facet. Starts with a staff member rushing out to get bags and then a great breakfast, this place is well managed. The new Driving range is also good. Cart service on the course was great. My partner and I found the pace of play great, we were a twosome, but were behind a foursome for the entire round and finished in under 4 hrs.

Orange tree is a go to course, always tee times available, always competitively priced. We have friends that span the valley and Orange tree is centrally located and offers good value, good layout for the price. Unfortunately, there are many non-golfers that play, likely due to the resort that should be informed as to pace of play, 4- 4.5 hours is very acceptable. Slow play is likely, so plan on a 5 to 5 1/2 hours, which is not acceptable. Although Marshalls are present, the log jam is sometimes painful. Normally, playing with ready golf players, with mid to low handicaps, it can be distracting. Normally play 10 - 12 times per year, just guessing.

Greatest cart gals in the valley!

We have played this course a number of times but have never experienced it being as slow as it was yesterday! They obviously over booked the course and there was almost no hole in the front 9 where we and often the group behind us were waiting for the fairway to clear.

We will probably play this course again but we hope to never have this kind of issue in a subsequent round.
