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.

Orange Tree is a nice little course. The summer excessive heat has taken it toll on the whole course which is totslly understandable. The greens were slow, fairways decent, sand traps (too many for my liking) were actually pretty nice. Over all this course is well worth playing.

Played early on a Sunday. The course had standing water and puddles on almost every hole. My playing partner and I both lost golf balls in the middle of the fairway buried in the muck. The greens were the slowest I have played in a long time. I know they are transitioning to bermuda for the summer, but so is every other course in the area and they aren´t this bad.

Course was in ok condition for the price but the greens were overall very slow. However more than anything they were inconsistent. Also fairways were half dirt and half grass. Played this course in the fall and it was like I played a different course.

Parts of fairways were mud, some part be aerating.

When you hit fairway shots instead of taking a divot you hit mud & your shot is short.

Some of the fairways have not grass. hitting of dirt mud. rates should be 25 to 35% less.

Orange Tree is the worst conditioned golf course I’ve ever played. I play around the valley every week but the conditions at Orange Tree were a joke. The owner should be ashamed charging people to play that track. If I could give the course a zero in the above survey I would. I feel bad for the staff because they have to defend such a poor course.

The fairway has very limited grass so a perfect drive could leave you in a large patch of dirt. The sand was often hard. Overall the rate makes the course very appealing and I would definitely go again because the staff was very friendly.

Went out to this course because I have played many times before saw a hot deal for $14. The course was l rough..fairways were mud and no grass. Greens were sandy and bumpy with a couple greens having some grass torn out to replace. These conditions should have been reported to golfnow. I would have never played knowing course was in rough shape.

Also at the turn we went into restaurant to grab some drinks and stood there for 10 min with no service. Finally just gave up.

I have played this course numerous times over the past 4 decades. Many of the fairways were extremely rough (bare dirt or very little grass). It is frustrating to hit a fairway and get a terrible lie. It was obvious that they were putting a lot of water on the course, but the fairways still need some help. The greens weren't much better. They were extremely bumpy. Most of the year this course is in great condition. The summer heat appears to be taking its toll on the course.

The course has lost the greens and the fairways. They applied a fertilizer that killed nearly all the grass in the fairways and the greens. There is almost no grass anywhere, except the rough. “Don’t” play here. They need to close the course to fix the problems.

Honestly this course is in horrendous condition . Not only are the greens ruined they're over watering every where, ridiculous! I understand closing the course is fiscally impossible but the least they could do is reduce the rates. Not only did they charge full price they also charged for range balls. When you greens keeping fails like yours has, give concessions. This course will never see my money ever again

Golfnow didn’t advise of punches and sandy greens. Fairways dry and void of grass. Pace of play slow after starting behind a scheduled tournament.

Normally I love Orange Tree. Ive always thought they had the best course management in the valley. Not today. Most importantly, they say they are putting new grass down. Perhaps they should close the course until the grass comes in. The greens were had no grass just dirt. The fairways still had standing water at noon on the hottest day of the year and we had mud balls. The rate however was very low. Also surprising was pace of play, OT normally has the best marshalls in town, but today they had an outing running very late and very slow. Everyone behind them had to pay the price to sit and wait till the event was over. Will be watching to see if the grass plan works. So sorry to write this up, normally its an outstanding day at OT.......

You would think a 6am tee time would not run into pace of play problems, yet you would be wrong. 4 groups were bunched on 17. How is that possible when there weren’t even 4 groups ahead of you? According to the ranger they don’t start groups off the back 9. The ranger lies.

I have played Orange Tree several times and this is the first disappointing round I have had. There is not one thing that I can say good about the course conditions other than horrible and not worth the greens fees I paid. I brought in friends saying this was a gem of a course and now I have egg on my face.

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.
