Not in the best condition that I have seen the golf course. The greens were in tough shape with most of them having sand throughout. They rolled okay, but not what you expect at a private club in January.

Pace of play wasn't very good, but really enjoy the course layout. Hopefully the greens come back like they were when i played it previously as they have nice contour to them. Great closing stretch as well.

Good bones point toward some potential

Mid-20th-century golf courses are often criticized for being relatively unimaginatively designed. In West Orange's case, that's only half-true, and fixable.

It's true that golfers don't encounter a hole that is not dead-straightaway at WOCC until the short par-4 16th. It's true that several fairways are so extremely tree-lined that even a slight miss leaves no chance for an exciting recovery shot.

But it's also true that the set of greens at WOCC is well above-average in terms of interest for a course of that vintage. They are small and undulating in varied ways, such that approach shots must be played with some careful planning. This adds considerable interest to a course that at first blush looks relatively mundane. Another point in the course's favor: it is compactly routed and is therefore a very pleasant walk, which is rare for Florida.

With some tree clearing, fairway expansion and selective and strategic bunker adjustment

Course Conditions are Average for this Time of Year

For a private facility, I expected the course to be in better condition during peak season but unfortunately the greens need some work. The layout is fun and challenging, which is a plus. The staff was friendly but the bar/restaurant wasn't open at 11:30. It was a holiday so II understand but they were moderately busy so there was a miss on some additional revenue.

Great course for the money !!

Perfect family country club! Whether you are a scratch golfer to a high handicapper, women or a man this is the place to play. Private club with 300+ members is a great place to play or just use the practice facilities. Pool and tennis courts are high quality or just enjoy a cocktail in the grill room. The golf course is well maintained and is home to PGA, Korn Ferry and Symetra tour players.

Really enjoyed my first experience at West Orange. It was a fun layout that had some quirkiness to it. It reminded me of Rio Pinar with how you could hit into the trees and still be able to play it out. Greens were in great shape and rolled nicely. Highly recommend checking this place out if given the chance.

Fun playable course

Played WOCC for the first time last Saturday My kids take golf lessons with Brendon Chase every Friday, but I've never had the chance to play. Thankfully my buddy joined and invited us for the first time last weekend.

Course and greens were in good shape. We had a great time and would definitely love to play it again.

Great course, great staff

Played this course a week ago and didn't have a great experience. The manager called me after and assured me that what I experienced was not norm. He invited me to play again and I did. Our round took 2 1/2 hrs and we did not rush. Course was in very nice shape. Tough, true greens and beautiful fairways. I cannot say enough good things about the course and it's people, including management. Thanks George for a great golfing experience.

A hidden gem in Winter Garden

A great private country club with a long history in the West Orange County area. Course is an anomoly for central Florida with tree lined fairways and easy to walk. Always in excellent shape. Fast and true greens. Multiple member games each day for all skill levels. Fellowship can't be beat. Many athletic and social amenities, including tennis, swimming, dining and bar. Chef Michelle and the entire staff are magnificent. A true departure from slow, daily fee golf. No tee times and rounds are typically 3 to 3.5 hours. Truly a hidden gem in Winter Garden.

What a hidden treasure

I have lived in West Orange County for 13 years and could not believe the quality and improvements that this course have undergone in the past 12 Months. I loved it so much I joined the club in February of this year.
The Course is always in fantastic condition the greens are beautiful, putting on these greens gets you spoiled, they are fast with plenty of break. Fairways, tee boxes, practice area, all TOP NOTCH. But Pace of Play is one of the reasons I love it so much, the members have multiple games going most days, and I have played in foursomes that have finished in about 3 hours.
After your round the grill has great food and friendly staff that have been with the club for years. I think it says something when a staff has been in their same job for years about how they are treated by their employers. However, the best thing about the club is how family friendly the place is. My wife, children, and I are making some wonderful memories and we all are so happy we have such a great place to enjoy.

A place to join!

West Orange is a neat and friendly private club without the air of a the typical "private " club. Very family friendly and always in great shape, this is a club where you don't need a tee time! Good food and generous drinks add to the value.

Can't Go Wrong With West Orange

First time player @ WOCC & it won't be the last! If you're looking for a new course to play (like I always am) or someone visiting to get an idea on courses to play you won't be disappointed with this one. Not your fancy, high level resort type of course with a lot of WOW factors. It's just a solid, well kept course which offers an enjoyable round in a nice setting. I got a 11:00 time and had most of the course for myself as a single. Breezed through and had ample time to work on my game. Great price, friendly staff led to a stress free day. The only catch to possibly watch for is the lack of cement cart paths throughout the course. There are a few holes where you'll need to pay attention to layout as there are no cart paths on certain holes. No biggie as it's pretty simple to figure out. Highly recommended

Decent layout

This course is laid out nicely. Course is much better than some area courses for minimum fees. Greens are in good shape with average speeds. Fairways on this day where soggy in a few places; I think there was morning rain left over. Was upset over there water kegs. None of them where more than luke warm water; almost to the point of just spitting it out. Not good for 90 degree temps. The course is compact and narrow; keep your ball in play or loose in water hazards. Sand bunkers could use new sand; Tight and compacted hard to hit from. Sunday afternoon round single went well 2 & half hour round. Only 1 backup they allowed me to play through.
