Orange County National Resort

Orange County National Lodge

Florida's Orange Count National Resort is a golfer's haven. While at Orange County National, enjoy the comfort and convenience of staying in our on-site lodge located just a few steps from the first tee, complete with its own lighted putting green for those players who just can't get enough! You do not have to be a great player to enjoy Orange County National, you just have to Love Golf! A Lot of golf!

In fact Orange County National has 45 fabulous holes, on 922 beautiful acres of unspoiled rolling terrain. Pure Golf, the way it was meant to be played, in peace and tranquility with nothing to distract your game except the rugged natural beauty of your surroundings. You will feel a million miles from anywhere; yet will be just a few miles from Disney, the convention center and all the entertainment Orlando has to offer.

Orange County National's Panther Lake CourseOrange County National's Panther Lake Course was the first course ever designed to feature 18 signature holes and showcase the native beauty of the Florida landscape. It accomplishes this feat in spectacular fashion. The sheer variety of the holes will astound you and make you think you are playing golf on holes that are continents, not yards apart.

The course incorporates rolling hills with up to 60-foot elevation changes as it winds through natural oak hammocks, pine forests, scenic wetlands and glistening freshwater lakes. A heroic 7,295-yard from the tips Panther Lake also offers the more manageable options of 6816, 6298 and 5094 yards allowing players of all levels to enjoy as much or as little course as they wish. While the phrase you will use every club in your bag is often over used, at Panther Lake you can be sure that you will need all 14 clubs!

While the front nine will test your skill as the course weaves through natural Florida wetlands putting a premium on accuracy, the back offers a different challenge. There you will find very un-Florida like changes of elevation, and pine tree lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas.

Panther Lake has been awarded 4½ Stars by Golf Digest's 'PLACES TO PLAY.' In the Golf Digest rankings, Panther Lake was listed in the Top 50 courses in North America for Conditioning and Pace of Play.

Orange County National's Crooked Cat CourseCrooked Cat offers a strong compliment to its sister course, Panther Lake. Crooked Cat has its own unique characteristics giving the player the choice of playing two very different courses in the same day. Designed with a distinct 'links' flavor, its open and flowing design features few trees, wide terraced fairways and native heather grass in the rough. This design gives the player an experience reminiscent of that found about 3000 miles to the east in the Scottish Highlands.

With large sloping greens, steep grass and sand bunkers, lots of native vegetation, and 50-foot elevation changes, Crooked Cat offers a true test to golfers of all skill levels. A fearsome 7,277-yards from the back tees, the course also can be played at 6748, 6035, 5236 yards, allowing you to choose how much of the 'Cat' you want to tame!

Crooked Cat has also been awarded 4½ Stars by Golf Digest's 'BEST PLACES TO PLAY' and listed among the Top 50 courses in North America for Conditioning, Pace of Play and Overall Value.

Orange County National's Tooth CourseLike our 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. It is a great place for players who like to work on their irons or those with only enough time to play a quick 9 holes.

Ride or walk, the choice is yours. With natural changes in elevation, a huge central lake that comes into play on four holes, the Tooth's par 29 is a challenge for all who play it! If you are a guest in the Lodge, you can walk the Tooth before your round, after your round, or both at no charge! In fact you can play it as often as you like because it is included with all Lodge stays. As special consideration to younger players, juniors can play free when accompanied by a paying adult and have special pricing when playing on their own.
