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.

Overall good experience

Only complaint was pace of play, it's listed on the card that four and a half hours is the expected pace which is an absolute joke. This is only listed that way so that people don't have a legitimate complaint about standing and waiting on every single shot. Tee times are scheduled every 8 minutes so this causes backups all the time and the slow pace. I would only recommend this course to anyone that's willing to get out early ahead of the crowd.

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.

Disney area busy so way over charge

Just as my title reads, it is a 20-25$ 18 holes at best!!!
The course layout is cool, but the starter was rude, and the fairways are dry, and worst of all the greens needed to be cut and were full of weeds. I will not return. Better courses in the area for similar $$$

Orange Lakes Reserve Course - Nice Track

A very nice layout with enough water to make it difficult for the first timer. Local knowledge would have helped immensely. Not a fan of playing through a resort. Only hit a screen door once. :-) Played the white tees hoping for 6000 yards. But all tees moved up which led to many 300 yard par 4s. Not a ton of driver holes. Still, tee boxes, fairways, bunkers, and greens in great shape. A pleasant round. Decent value given it's March and prices are high.
