Orange County National Crooked Cat Renovation
Orange County National Golf Center is at it again. Last summer, Orange County National renovated the greens on the Panther Lake course and the results were fabulous. Orange County National has decided to renovate the greens on the Crooked Cat course this summer.
The renovation will convert the putting surfaces from traditional Tifdwarf Bermuda Grass to the increasingly popular Champion Bermuda Grass...to match the recently renovated Panther Lake course greens. Champion is one of the new ultra dwarf grasses that allows warm climates to produce putting surface quality equal to, if not better than the bent grass surfaces found up north. In addition to the change in grass on the greens, green size and configuration will be brought back to the original design specifications thus allowing for increased hole locations and greater variety of course set up.
Celebration Golf Management purchased Orange County National in March 2012. The greens renovation project at OCN continues Celebration Golf Management's commitment to quality course conditions at their golf courses. Other Orlando area golf courses in the Celebration Golf portfolio include: Eagle Creek Golf Club, Celebration Golf Club, Stoneybrook West and The Golden Bear Club.
Completing both courses in 2012 will pave the way for the return of the PGA TOUR Q-School Finals to Orange County National in 2013. These changes will contribute to presenting a stronger challenge to the aspiring Tour cardholders.
Completion of the greens renovation on the Crooked Cat course is expected in September 2012. Keep in mind, the Panther Lake course will be open throughout the summer. Book your tee time at Orange County National - Panther Lake.
