Very Poor for Expensive Course

Legends is one of the worst higher priced courses we've played. Half of greens had sand dressed areas to cover damage, and we moved ball several times to put. Fairways and boxes in poor condition. Layout is Ok, but several greens are extremely small, starting with #1. Overall, poor value for a very overpriced Legends course

Pleasant round, Small greens, a but overpriced

This is one of 2, 18-holes course at Orange Lake. There is also a 9-hole course that's lit at night. The Legends course is a Palmer design and you can see why. Most of the trouble - traps and water - are on the right side of 5he hole or green. With Palmer a draw golfer, that works. For 5he majority of players - aim left!

The greens were surprising in how small they are. No large, two-tier complexes but some undulations throughout. Other than the sand on the greens, the putting was nice.

The fee was $90 so a bit overpriced for an average course. But it was a pleasant round so few complaints.

Terrible

This course is terrible, especially for the money they charge. We paid $50 to rent junk clubs. The course is in terrible shape. There’s actually crab grass growing on several greens. There was trash strewn about the edge of the fairways on some holes. We followed a very slow foursome that had more interest in partying than golfing. I’m talking heavy drinking, yelling, acting like fools and playing very loud music through a Bluetooth speaker. I’ve played at way better courses for a fraction of the cost. I honestly can’t believe this course is associated with Arnold Palmer’s name. Huge disappointment and a complete waste of money.

Nice Course, Poor Condition

My wife and I were staying in a time share at Orange Lake with friends. Two of us booked a time on the Legends. The layout was decent. The back nine was especially picturesque. Unfortunately, the course conditions were less than ideal. The grass in the fairways was sparse and did not support the ball well. The traps were inconsistent, many having far too much sand. The worst part was the condition of the greens, especially on the front nine. There were numerous tufts of weeds (what appeared to be a type of poa, along with other varieties) that had invaded the greens, making them bumpy and difficult to putt, as well as aesthetically unpleasant. I was hoping the poor condition of the putting green would not be a harbinger of those on the course; rather it was a foretaste of things to come. The best thing I can say is that the pace of play was speedy. This course is not worth the nearly $100 greens fee. It’s an extremely poor value! When I pay that much for a round of golf, I expect the course to be in good condition.

Need a starter/ranger

I played this course as a single. When I arrived for my tee time there were about 4 groups on the first tee with no starter in sight. I asked one of the cart boys and he said there should be a starter so he apparently was not informed. It was a free for all to try and figure which groups were going out. I got lucky and a nice couple let me play with them. Pace of play was also an issue with no ranger. If this course is charging 60+ dollars there has to be better managed. Conditions were good but management was bad.

Excellent Value with Golfnow

This is a excellent course. Tough but fair. Everything in super condition. Without Golfnow it is a bit pricey.

No 19th hope and greens need help!

Not a bad day of golf but if this is considered their premier course in needs a lot of work. For the price I would expect the greens to be in better condition. Pace of play was good but there is no grill or restaurant at the turn or 19th hole. Head to the Ale house when you finish it’s right outside the gate.

Convenient and fair place to test your game!

Priced in the range expected in Orlando. Convenience made playing this course a good idea on our last day in Orlando. The greens were smooth but colored to make them appear greener than they would otherwise be. enough challenge on the course to test you but sufficient ways to play around the difficulties. Long and wide enough to make using the driver a good idea. Nice place to play without driving too far.

Worst Experience Ever

No amenities at the club house - could not even get a cup of coffee. Practice tee and balls in sad shape....Not sure where the challenge is with this course. Was told beverage cart had everything when asking about drinks. We did not see the cart until the 7th holes. Can't believe this has Palmer's name on it.

Not great

Worst greens I’ve played on in a long time. Greens are rock hard, like trying to stop a ball on a pool table. Yes the greens are fast but that’s only because they are hard sand with very little growth on them. Not worth the money, play Providence for less money and the greens great.
