Wrapping up a great day. Photo submitted by Scott4497478
I liked the layout a lot. The condition was very good. Pace of play was excellent.
A beautiful day.
We had a very nice day, playing well. Very well received. The way I know The Ritz.
What I liked was that what we bought in the course, we didn't had to give tip. It was already included!!
The girl said 30, and she didn't accept tip, because it already was included. I would love when this was the rule in the whole country.
Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes GC
Great course. The staff is always super friendly and the you are treated wonderfully. The course was in fantastic shape as has been the case each time I've played there and it is never overcrowded. I find the course to be a players course where you can really go for the pin instead of the layout being too tight. Beautiful scenery and a feeling of being miles away from anywhere it's a relaxing and enjoyable day at the course. Well worth the money.
Ritz Carlton 11/23/18
Practice range was perfect, chipping area perfect and putting green perfect as was the course. My son 15 and I fully enjoyed our round. We were paired with another father & son who were a joy to play with. The course was amazing, big wide open fairways guarded by lots of bunkers and water with challenging approach shots and greens that are big and very deceptive as there is more slope on the greens then you would think.. Price is steep at $175 a round but there was nothing to complain about here.
Four hr round, greens are quick, fairways and tee blocks in excellent shape as expected at this course. 5star!
Over hyped, boring and in OK shape
Bad layout/design. Boring and straightforward.
Played with a friend who was blown away by Orange County National/Grand Cypress/Southern Dunes/Reunion.
He didn't think much of here. Neither did I.
I have no problem shelling out well over $100 for a tee time, if its worth it. What is wrong with this course?:
- Such a boring, sedentry design. Really bad
- Conditions were the worst of the 4 courses we played that week. Range, though, was the best maintained.
- Its over priced and over hyped
The bad on the day:
- idiots hitting balls into you, claiming they didnt know you were there. Doing it on multiple holes, and when confronted act dumb.
- Pro shop not telling you some of the greens were punched.
The good on the day:
- Burger in the clubhouse is excellent (imo)
To those looking for alternatives at this price point:
- Waldorf astoria is better in every way. Still not a huge fan of it - but it is better than this place.
- Shingle Creek - its everything this place is (flat resort course with frequent views of the hotel) but in better shape, slightly cheaper, better design.
- Bay Hill, because at least it will sound good in conversations.
Or just go to OCN/Grand Cypress/Southern Dunes/etc for an upgrade in every possible way and save money
No bad at all if you get a decent deal. Fairway and greens in excellent condition. Course layout tremendous. Fun day and will play again if a right deal comes along..
I want more please!
Shared morning tee time with a low handicap and since there were just 2 of us, we played in less than 4 hrs and condition and pace of play was great which helped with low score. This golf course is one of the best maintained courses in Orlando. Always a charm to play here and definitely coming back for more.
I'll preface by saying a little disappointed we weren't made aware they had punched 10 days prior. With that being said, great layout and when the greens are back it's a must play if you haven't played it whether you're a local or out of Towner
Great course bunkers will be a challenge
Had a great time everyone was really nice. Course was great And excellent conditions. Watch out for the bunkers. You will like the course
Fairways and tees boxes were in excellent shape. Almost like hitting off a carpet mat. Greens were brown in some spots but rolled great and fast.
This course was up to my expectations.
Good round played after a shot gun competition.
Pace was good and the weather excellent!
Great course for the $99 price on golf now.
Also great course for resident rate of $130
Not such a great value at the regular nonresident price of $180 - 185.
Staff is terrrific, friendly and accomodating.
Same for the Golf shop desk.
Big let down
I go to Orlando on business yearly and have wanted to play this course multiple times since its so highly reviewed. The greens were in very poor condition and the course in general was not kept well. Huge disappointment. The best part was the pre-round meal in the pub.
We played Championsgate the next day and it was immaculate!!
Special course especially with great pace of play
Course conditions were very good but with slow greens and a number of tees were scruffy. Especially for the money. ALOT of sand but a fair layout. We play this course whenever we can in season if the price is right
