If you are looking for the best golf in Orlando, FL and want to know who has the finest course layouts, conditions and facilities, look no further than Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge.
Whatever the goal for your Orlando golf vacation 36 holes per day, first class instruction, hours of range time, or memories of sharing good times with friends, OCN has something for you.
Panther Lake Course
Panther Lake is everything you could want in a golf course. Playing over rolling meadows, through native pines, around and over wetlands, lakes, and up and down elevation changes of up to 60 feet, it is first and foremost a visual delight, reminding you that natural beauty is one of the main reasons you play golf and a major factor in deciding which course to play.
Panther Lake offers some of the best examples of natural beauty that Orlando area golf courses have to offer. One of the highlights is that there is no development on or around the course a Florida golf course with no homes! You will likely encounter many native species of birds and wildlife during your round, which will be enjoyed in the most tranquil of settings. Every hole on Panther Lake is unique and requires something different from your shot making repertoire. This is another feature that makes this Central Florida golf course so special; when you finish your round you will likely be able to recall each hole very vividly as they are all very different in appearance as well as appealing in design to the eye. The variety in design is evident in the way no two holes play alike. There are no boring holes at Panther Lake, and each is as distinct and memorable as the last. The only characteristic the holes share is that each shot demands good thinking and precise execution.
Crooked Cat Course
Like Panther Lake, Crooked Cat features significant elevation changes, rolling fairways and large, contoured greens. But with fewer trees, wider landing areas, native heather and mounding framing the fairways, Crooked Cat presents golfers more of a links-style look. It may well be the most naturally beautiful Orlando Florida golf course. In the Summer of 2012 Orange County National completed a successful renovation of Crooked Cats greens using the highly regarded Champions Bermuda Ultra Dwarf Turf Grass. Champions Bermuda has received much praise from professional and tour players because of its true roll and quicker pace.
The courses open feel encourages golfers to grip it and rip it off the tee, and there is certainly more room for error and multiple options for playing a holeboth off the tee and into the greens. Crooked Cat is not a connect-the-dots course; feel free to go outside the lines like a kindergarteners finger painting. But beware: As with links-style courses, there is an element of chance, and a wayward shot can end up in one of many seemingly randomly placed grass bunkers. Gamblers and scramblers will do well. So will shot makers.
Tooth Course (9 holes)
Like the entire facility, there is nothing you would call ordinary about the Tooth. It is in the same great shape as our regulation courses and provides exactly the same type of challenge albeit on a smaller scale. The Tooth Course provides the perfect venue to try out the new shots in your arsenal. When it clickswhen you hit that perfect draw that clears the bunker and lands three feet from the holeyoull know your practice was worth it. Tooth will give you the opportunity to work on that cut 6 iron you needed to hit on Crooked Cat earlier in the day or make that knee knocking birdie putt you missed on Panther just a few minutes ago. Whatever the goal, time spent on the Tooth will be fun and memorable. Read on to learn why we feel its the best nine hole golf course in Orlando FL.
