Orange County National Golf Center & Lodge
Orange County National Golf Center & Lodge overview
Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge is located just outside of Orlando, Florida, around 10 minutes from Walt Disney World Resort and 30 minutes from International Boulevard. The property boasts two 18-hole golf courses, both of which are customer favorites in Orlando, and a 9-hole executive course.
Additionally, the largest driving range in the nation can be found here, with 42 acres of practice space, including the 22,000 square foot lighted putting green. There are 43 ground floor, lodge-style rooms available, conveniently located just steps from the clubhouse and golf facilities.
There are three courses onsite at Orange County National which guests can make use of throughout their stay.
The Panther Lake course was the first built at the resort, having opened in 1997. The layout seamlessly blends into the natural beauty of the area, with golfers enjoying natural elevation changes and native wildlife, wetlands, lakes and rolling meadows.
The second course, Crooked Cat, opened in 1999. With the same designers at the forefront, it also features natural elevation changes in addition to its use of native heather, rolling fairways and large contoured greens, all of which use Bermuda Dwarf Grass.
The Tooth course is the 9-hole executive course, which is kept to the same standards as the other two and is a great place to play in a more laid-back environment. Best of all, guests of the lodge enjoy complimentary access to this course.
Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge has 43 ground floor lodge-style rooms onsite. Golfers can choose from rooms with 1 king bed or 2 queens and they are conveniently located just steps from the clubhouse and golf facilities.

On Site Activities
In addition to the courses onsite and the large driving range, the Golf Performance Village was designed to be a one stop shop for golfers, with 12 teaching pros onsite to help all aspects of your game, from physical conditioning to perfecting your swing plane using the latest technology available.
The Orange 83 Pub and Grill is conveniently located in the clubhouse and offers a full-service restaurant and bar with outdoor patio.
The 17th hole on the Panther Lake course is a spectacular par 3 that requires a precise shot over a swampy waste area to a multi-tiered green.
