Grande Lakes

Course has a number of issues with the surrounds to several of the greens. We were given no notice in advance and were disappointed to be charged the full rate which was expensive compared to other similar courses. While the staff were very courteous and sympathetic they were not prepared to do anything.
Catering and staff in the clubhouse were excellent.

You would expect more…

I don’t like leaving reviews but the course was in terrible condition. Bunkers were never raked initially and were rock solid. No grass on parts of the fairway which put you in trouble even when hitting fairways off the tee and many more issues. You just expect more from the Ritz.

Overpriced for the course condition

Very friendly staff and good course layout, but fairways, areas around the greens, and traps are in bad condition: brown spots, hard sand, etc.

Not worth the money

This is your average resort course. The greens are flat, bunkers are flat, fairways are huge and not very memorable. You might remember one or two holes after your round. For $355 you could play 50 of the top 100 courses in the US, this course is not in the top 300. I would pay $125 at best for this course, if you like courses without character than this course is for you. There are much better courses in the area for much lower prices.

Fun course

My son and I played there last Monday and Tuesday. He is a high school junior and staff was great with him. Course conditions were fantastic. Juniors play free.

Foecaddie was a ZeroCaddie

I’ve played the course about a dozen times, but I’m not sure I’ll be back. I wouldn’t have been there this time because of the outrageous price ($355), but I was lucky enough to have a free round. In accordance with club policy, my foursome was given a forecaddie. He was terrible. Didn’t rake a bunker, find a wayward shot, or read a putt unless he was asked.

Amazing Experience

We had a wonderful 18. The staff were very friendly. The course is somewhat expensive, and there were some small areas around the greens where the grass was less than perfect, however it still had what I would call tour level firm greens and fairways. Our caddie, Bob, was fantastic and made the day 10 times more fun. If you are here and can get him, I would highly recommend him.

Good Course, Worth Playing

Course had been aerated 3 weeks prior so greens a bit bumpy. Still one of the nicer courses in Orlando. Suggest high handicap play from more forward tee box. For the most part the fairways are open. Bunkers are well maintained and drain completely. It can be a bit expensive but what else would you expect considering the name and association. Staff are very friendly and facility is immaculate.
