About Orange County National - Crooked Cat

Par: 72   Yards: 7,493   Slope: 139   USGA: 76.6

16301 Phil Ritson Way • Winter Garden, FL 34787

Crooked Cat is a phenomenal complement to its highly acclaimed sister course, Panther Lake. Both courses host to the 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2010 PGA TOUR Qualifying School Finals, having been awarded 4.5 stars by Golf Digest's "Places to Play" every year since 1999. That's no easy accomplishment as there are only 52 courses in Florida with an equal rating. With an entourage now of newly planted trees, wide-terraced fairways, and native redtop heather grass in the rough, this 7500-yard course is meticulously groomed, features a distinct Scottish "links" flavor, is not surrounded by homes, and features incredible Champion Dwarf Bermuda greens added the summer of 2012. Elevation changes amongst rolling terrain are prevalent while wildlife abounds in this natural setting.

ADDED VALUE: Special "Bounce-Back Rates" provide a discounted rate for a second round. FREE pre-booked replays now thru 9/27/15 and 5/04/16-9/27/16, plus FREE replays per availability 10/01-12/31/15!
