Orlando County National in Orlando has played host to the 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2010 PGA TOUR Qualifying School Finals and was awarded 4.5 stars by Golf Digest's "Places to Play." The Panther Lake Golf Course is a 7350-yard masterpiece incorporating rolling hills and dramatic elevation changes as it winds through natural oak hammocks, pine trees and freshwater lakes.
A complete greens renovation was completed during the summer of 2011 on the Panther Lake Course at Orange County National. To mirror bent grass greens from the northern states, Orange County National installed Champion Dwarf Bermudagrass. Champion Bermuda provides an exceptional ball roll for optimal putting conditions.
Panther Lake provides great variety and several shot making options. 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 quality the holes have in common is that each shot demands good thinking and precise execution.
Off the tee, you will face gently sloping fairways guarded by strategically placed fairway bunkers, trees and water hazards that frame the holes and provide a clear line of play. From the fairway, you will hit many approaches into well-guarded elevated greens, which are large and have plenty of contours, so two-putting isn't automatic.
