The course at the Orange Tree Golf Resort provides an excellent game of golf in a luxurious setting. The Parkland-style layout features fairways lined with mature trees, which not only enhance the natural beauty of the golf course but can also greatly affect shots. Four lakes are situated on the flat terrain of the course, providing water hazards that come into play on five holes. Sand bunkers also surround every green. Orange Tree Golf Resort's course finishes with its signature hole, where water cuts into the fairway and proceeds to run down the left side all the way to the green. It also requires accuracy on the approach shot in order to hit the small putting surface that is surrounded by tricky elements.

Lack of empathy from front office

The course overall was in good shape. They experienced some frost this week which delayed our round by appx 1 hour. When doing so it made it where part of our party had to leave early on the back 9. Tried asking for consideration to start on the back 9 to be able to get the whole round in, they quickly declined and didn't seem to really care. They are focused on dynamic pricing which is likely great for them, however it has jacked up pricing and the course conditions do not reflect it. I wouldn't go out of my way to go back to the course due to their management choices on how to treat golfer experience. Plenty of other courses to visit.

Orange Tree

Fast, slick greens. Every putt near the hole curved away. Fairways were patchy in too many places, creating thin, uneven lies.

Nice course for the cost

Course is in great condition minus the sand bunkers. All lacking sand so hitting out of was almost impossible.
Hopefully that will change soon.

Nice course

Course in nice shape. Bunkers hard to hit out of due to the firmness of the sand.

Saturday not good- Sunday much better

We got a 2 pm tee time on Saturday expecting to play 18. We were on the tee box at 2:20 and waited on every hole. The pace of play for 9 holes was 3 hours. No chance to play 18.
We played again on Sunday. Again pace of play was slower.. Waited on every hole. We managed to get done with 18 in a bit over 41/2 hours. The management was responsive to our disappointment when it was raised.

Fun time

Course condition and staff were great? Greens are very true and readable. Loved the patio and sitting area. Many holes seemed the same, but still provided a good challenge.

Overpaid for Value

The course is worn out and needs improvements. Very disappointed in the course conditions for the price we paid. Would not play here again.

Needs Improvement

The course has possibilities with a complete redo starting with tee boxes thru the greens. The maintenance facilities look horrible. Can’t recruit good people with old equipment and poor work area. The shop was fine. Good marketing for the happy hour and restaurant area. You could attract a younger age demographic with an improved practice area and better pricing. John Jacob’s has a good reputation but can’t believe they could get much traction with that practice facility. Won’t be back unless money is put back into the club.

Orange Tree is Trying to Improve

Even though OT has been rebuilding their bunkers, they need to be deep raked weekly as the course watering packs the "sand" down and they become hard packed just under the surface. Additionally, because there are NO GPS's on the carts, a player must use a laser device--but the pins have no reflectors. It would be nice to have better tee box markers--the pieces of tree limbs (with painted ends--and rocks for the most forward tees) look tacky for a GOLF RESORT!
