Another vote for Grand Cypress.  Aside from the 3 nines, another 18-hole links style course is available on the property.  Right smack in the middle of everything, Grand Cypress could just as well be

+1 - Orange County Panther Lake is a tough course though, runs at a CR of 76 from the green tees, Crooked Cat is easier - wasn't that pricey when I played last summer at 40$ in the afternoon

Champions Gate is another good course specially the International course which is a links style course - 35$s or so for a late tee off


++1 for Orange County Panther Lake and Crooked Cat. Played there in Sept 2012 a reasonable rate.

I only go to Disney when I go down to Orlando. That said, the Palm and Magnolia courses are great courses. I'll be down again early October and I'm going to play one of those again.

I'm playing in Orlando next week.

Have a tee time for Hunter's Creek on Sunday and both Orange County National courses on Monday (Crooked Cat) and Tuesday (Panther).

@jsgolfer , can I talk you out of Hunter's Creek?  You're gonna love the 2 OCN courses, but Hunter's Creek is barely mediocre with a bunch of better options available......

Here are just a couple:

I'm happy to discuss other options too based on what you're looking for, where you're staying and price range.  Regardless though, have fun while you're down here! :beer:

Hey Dave, You probably could talk me out of that course but my Dad likes the course, being a novice golfer he loves it.

Played Hunters Creek and you were finitely spot on, although Orange County National has just bought them. Both Crooked Cat and Panther Lake were awesome. They were $39 after 2:30 and if your an Orange County resident it was 29 for my Dad. I would play those two courses again for sure. 78 Hunters Creek, 41-37 blue tees, 72.7, 127, 6856 81 Crooked Cat, 41-40, orange tees, 73.7, 137, 6927 78 Panther Lake, 41-37, orange tees, 73.2, 132, 6849 Played TPC Cancun today, great layout, fairways were terrible, not worth the money I paid. Player Riviera Cancun Golf Cub tomorrow. Hopefully that one is in better shape.

Those are a couple of pretty good rounds for right out if the gate after the winter you guys have had! Glad you had fun. We get down to Cancun every now and then. Look forward to hearing how you liked RCGC. I've heard good things, but have never played it. Any chance you'll get to play Mayakoba?

I have one day to play while here on business.  Out of the 3 courses (all on Golfnow for great deals), would you recommend Magnolia, Championsgate, or Grande Cypress New Course?

Personal preference would be Magnolia. I played it 3 weeks ago and am playing it again on Sunday.....it's in great shape right now. One other option to consider is Waldorf Astoria. VERY good prices on a GolfNow right now and it's a great course, usually a lot more expensive....

I just noticed that Magnolia is for Greater Orlando residents.  Scratch that course.

Worse, it looks like they just aerated. Gonna have to change my plans for Sunday too! Wherever you decide, call to verify they haven't aerated.....it's that time of year.

Skip Champions Gate! Cypress is the place to go. Champions is beat up and the service sucks! Cypress is tough but beautiful and challenging.

In regards to Reunion, I organized a trip there about 2 years ago with 32 guys. I think we all liked the Palmer course the least, condos all around it. Watson was great but I think the Nicklaus course was the best of the 3. Down the street and through the wilderness with not much around. Many guys preferred Watson though.

Didn't see anyone mention the Ritz Carlton/JW Marriot course designed by Greg Norman. Great track, no homes on the course. Just you and wilderness. Similar to Waldorf but much more fair in my opinion. The Waldorf ate my lunch. Actually seen some decent deals if you stay at the JW Marriot (very nice) or Ritz (even nicer), and book a time on the course. We've also been able to book our group on the course without staying at either hotel. Caddies available.

Orange County is of course always a dependable choice. Never go wrong.

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
