Orange Lake Resort (Legends)
Kissimmee, FL 34747
The Links and The Pines. The Arnold Palmer designed Legends Course at Orange Lake Resort features two distinctly different nines. Orange Lake Resort Orlando features 36 holes of championship golf, including the Legends Golf Course. Reminiscent of old Scottish-style courses, "The Links" wide-open nine will bring windy conditions into play that can make club selection challenging. Strategically contoured greens require well-placed approach shots and precision putting. The longest of Orange Lake's challenging golf holes at 610 yards, The Links hole #4 is a good warm-up before venturing into "The Pines".
Towering pines, majestic oaks, winding fairways and flowing water create a serene setting complementing each hole on the back nine. Tee shots are fired between strategic openings cut through the trees. A wayward shot here could result in a ball pushed deep in the woods. Much like the classic courses of North Carolina, proper club selection and accuracy are required to successfully navigate through The Pines. The Island Oak, hole #13, is the feature hole at The Legends course.
Orange Lake Resort offers two championship layouts: The Legends Golf Courseand The Reserve Golf Course at Orange Lake Resort. The Legends at Orange Lake has earned the designation as one of the best golf courses in Orlando in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
Legendary Golf Course
A fun day at a really nice Orlando golf course. One of my favorite golf course designs in Florida. Greens were nice, layout is fun and staff was pleasent.
A Nice Surprise
Didn't get a chance to play The Legends at Orange Lake during our last trip to Orlando. Glad we put it on the docket this time. A nice surprise. Thanks Golf Orlando Florida for the recommendation!
A hidden gem I hadn't heard about before I found it on this website. The staff was very friendly and the course layout was fun and challenging.
Great Design, Great Service
The Legends was enjoyable to play. Great design in good condition. A course I want to play again.
The staff was friendly and the course was a fun layout in wonderful condition. The bathrooms were a little dirty, but it did seem like a busy day on the course. There was a slow group in front of us, but the rangers were very helpful pushing them along. Nothing like a few ladies pushing a group of guys on the course!
Wonderful layout and friendly staff. I was very impressed by the The Legends course. The conditions were tremendous, the service was outstanding and the layout was fabulous. Our group had a chance to play both The Legends and The Reserve. The Legends clearly outshined the Reserve course. Will definitely return to play The Legends.
Good golf course
Good golf course with a fun layout. Give yourself some extra time getting into the resort. It's a few miles drive to get to the golf shop. Luckily we made it just in time for our tee time. It was a nice course but a step below some of the better courses in Orlando.
Disappointing, standards have slipped here I'm afraid ...
Disappointed overall in the whole experience compared to other courses played in the area and based on my previous experiences both staying at and playing the courses at Orange Lake.
I booked online, as this was cheaper and easier, as it turned out, than when I called the resort directly to do this?? Also the club hire/rental was more expensive than the round of golf itself?? And the club hire/rental was more expensive and of lower quality (in my opinion) than at other courses in the area. Also no range balls were offered despite me asking at the Pro shop when checking in, and no GPS on carts despite this now being stated on some promotional websites (perhaps not Orange Lake's fault this one?). The Legends Course was not in good condition and the greens were very hairy (with a noticeable amount of weeds?) and slow in comparison to the other courses I played in the Orlando area. Disappointing overall and will unfortunately think twice about playing this course again. I have played the courses at Orange Lake on a number of occasions, and sad to say that standards have slipped in my opinion. Sorry, but very disappointing!!! Falcon's Fire is a much better play and the service is definitely with a smile at this course ...
A few problems
Disappointed by the course conditions compared to other courses in the area. The layout was fun despite the slow play.
Reserve over Legends
Both courses at Orange Lake were nice. I preferred the Reserve course over the Legends because of the price difference.
