Golf - 18 hole 'The Reserve'

Golf - 18 hole 'The Reserve' at Orange Lakes

Opening Hours

Open all year, with the first tee time at 07:00 throughout to twilight golfing

Now when you visit Orange Lake Orlando, you'll have a brand new golf experience waiting for you. Architect Mike Dasher transformed the former Resort Course, designed by Joe Lee in 1982, into this all-new, exciting golf experience. The Reserve at Orange Lake is now an 18-hole, par 71 course winding through a myriad of water, sand and rolling greens. It was named The Reserve at Orange Lake to highlight the harmony between the perfectly manicured greens of the course and the carefully preserved surrounding wetlands, home to a variety of native plants and wildlife.
Improvements to the layout and course conditions—including new water features and bunkering—make the course even more challenging than before.
