Front 9 fairways not yet filled in from the reseed.

The bunkers could do with a good deep raking since the ones I experienced are hard packed under the initial cover so need to pick rather than splash. Greens ok.

Nice but Same ol Same ol

The course was average with nice houses around the course but no views other than that. Every hole was kind of the same and the pace of play was horrible! Get a ranger or space out your tee times! All of this is probably from over booking.

Not in the shape I havebeen used to

Would always play OT several times during my previuos visits and always found the conditions to be excellent. Not so much this year.. Tees, fairs and some greens were not to the same standard I have been used to. Not sure what the issue is, that being said the course is still very playable and enjoyed my round there. Chuck the started was a pleasure to deal with as was with all staff.

Disappointing

Expected better course conditions and design. Had heard good things, but did not live up to hype. Carts were gas , and were very dirty.

Average course but got good deal so worth it

Average course , little dry and bare in spots. Players should be fixing divots but obviously we’re not. Pace ok but not great , waited most holes few mins, at one point we were asked to pick up speed and had to point out we are the ones waiting on Tee and if we hit the ball we would hit those in front of us, just seemed like course Marshall a little panicked by others comments on slow play.

Overseed conditions

Course was generally nice. Greens were in good shape and had some tricky rolls. There were some very wet spots that resulted in mud lies that were almost unplayable. This was particularly evident in several of the bunkers.

Outside staff

The starter was very unfriendly to the golfers. One player even asked him if he got up on the wrong side of bed. We both found him very unpleasant. Pro shop employees were very friendly.as was the course ranger. I am trying to be kind but I am 73 and played on 73 of the best courses in US and this was the rudest starter I have run into. No reason, we’re not busy. He shouldn’t be in customer service.

Mediocre condition I expected better

I haven't played at Orange Tree Golf Club for a few years and was surprised at the mediocre condition of the course. Something must be going on financially because the condition of the course has declined significantly.
