Orange County National is one of the great golfing gems around Orlando, boasting two excellent championship courses and a stunning practice facility. The Panther Lake course, as distinct from its feline sister, the Crooked Cat, is the bigger cat and tougher prospect.
This challenging and visually impressive layout contains plenty of water in the form of lakes and Floridian wetland. These watery hazards contribute to the feeling of tighter fairways and less forgiveness for those errant drives than you'll find on the Crooked Cat.
The gently undulating terrain of the Panther course has been landscaped and sculpted to produce an almost hilly demeanour to some holes, while the often large greens also contain plenty of testing slopes. With superb practice facilities throughout, Orange County National provides 36-holes of top quality golf, not to be missed.
