Awesome day!!

Greens & fairways were in A+ shape. Bunkers had way too many stones, damaged my wedge.
Greens were wayyyyy too slow. Putting green was lighting fast, Disparity cost me shots getting used to the flow greens.

Will def return. Great job by the guy at the counter.

Nice course for all level of players

I played this course for years in a league. Nice layout, good pace of play and friendly staff. The only thing that needs some work are the cart paths.

Not your typical country club

I'm renting a house in Milford for the summer and wanted to play something other than the usual 9 hole courses int he area. Orange Hills was a welcome surprise. The course was in great condition and the weather was absolutely perfect. I fond the course pretty challenging (although I'm a 40 handicap so any course is challenging :) ) . I showed up hoping to have my brother ride in the cart with me but was told that wasn't allowed. When I said OK the guy behind the counter started to give me a long list of reasons why. I said it's fine but he kept going on about it. If that's the only downside to a round of golf I'll take it haha.

Very Nice Round

Went out for 9 holes with three generations: 70, 47, 16 and 13 y. o.
Staff was friendly and helpful. Course, especially the greens, was in great condition. Would like to go back for 18.

fair but challenging course

Got a last second tee time. Course in very good shape. Crowded but steady play. Challenging but fair. Very hot day, in the low 90's.

Great but not so great

I always enjoy playing Orange Hills even though it does not have a driving range for warm up. The course was in great shape but greens were a touch shaggy making for slow putts. Today though they did something that puzzeled and upset me. As we rounded the front nine we came upon the tenth tee with two full groups placed in front of us. Our pace for a four hour round was knocked back to five hours and definitely disrupted our rhythm. Not sure why they did it but it left a sour taste in all of my playing companion's mouths.

we played on a Friday, maybe my 1st mistake, but the course was very slow, it took us over 5 hours to play this round. so if you play here and you should, don't be in a hurry
