Disappointing, standards have slipped here I'm afraid ...
Disappointed overall in the whole experience compared to other courses played in the area and based on my previous experiences both staying at and playing the courses at Orange Lake.
I booked online, as this was cheaper and easier, as it turned out, than when I called the resort directly to do this?? Also the club hire/rental was more expensive than the round of golf itself?? And the club hire/rental was more expensive and of lower quality (in my opinion) than at other courses in the area. Also no range balls were offered despite me asking at the Pro shop when checking in, and no GPS on carts despite this now being stated on some promotional websites (perhaps not Orange Lake's fault this one?). The Legends Course was not in good condition and the greens were very hairy (with a noticeable amount of weeds?) and slow in comparison to the other courses I played in the Orlando area. Disappointing overall and will unfortunately think twice about playing this course again. I have played the courses at Orange Lake on a number of occasions, and sad to say that standards have slipped in my opinion. Sorry, but very disappointing!!! Falcon's Fire is a much better play and the service is definitely with a smile at this course ...
We have come to the Orlando area every year as a group for about 10 years. This is the first time we have played here. It is probably the worst run golf course in Florida. It took over 3 hours to play the back 9 as they had no one at all, no ranger, no one running the course. They allowed a group in front of is to play in a group of 5. Another group in front of us used 3 different tee boxes, blue, white and women's. I tried to call the club house, I was transferred to some other number that was not answered. I called the club house again but no one at all answered. After waiting on every single shot, and the round was finished, I went to the club house to make sure someone knew they had an issue. The person at the register said he was the only person available. He also had 7 other people giving him a tough time because of the complete lack of management on this course.
Don't go here unless you want to wait or play in 6 hours. We won't be back.
Splendid golf course in great condition and warm welcome from the staff. The greens were smooth and quick. I would recommended to my golfing friends. Pace of play was a bit slow. The staff was helpful.
