West Orange CC is always an enjoyable experience. Great layout, while a tad on the narrow side. Just played on and the course was in great shape. They recently punched the greens so I'm told they will get even better...although they seemed great to me. Beyond just being a really fun course, what I love about playing WOCC is how relaxed and friendly the atmosphere is here. You can't go wrong with this course. While it is a private course, I believe if you call the pro shop, you can likely work your way on for a reasonable fee during certain times of the week. 5/5 stars from me.

Not in the best condition that I have seen the golf course. The greens were in tough shape with most of them having sand throughout. They rolled okay, but not what you expect at a private club in January.

Pace of play wasn't very good, but really enjoy the course layout. Hopefully the greens come back like they were when i played it previously as they have nice contour to them. Great closing stretch as well.

Mid-20th-century golf courses are often criticized for being relatively unimaginatively designed. In West Orange's case, that's only half-true, and fixable.

It's true that golfers don't encounter a hole that is not dead-straightaway at WOCC until the short par-4 16th. It's true that several fairways are so extremely tree-lined that even a slight miss leaves no chance for an exciting recovery shot.

But it's also true that the set of greens at WOCC is well above-average in terms of interest for a course of that vintage. They are small and undulating in varied ways, such that approach shots must be played with some careful planning. This adds considerable interest to a course that at first blush looks relatively mundane. Another point in the course's favor: it is compactly routed and is therefore a very pleasant walk, which is rare for Florida.

With some tree clearing, fairway expansion and selective and strategic bunker adjustment

For a private facility, I expected the course to be in better condition during peak season but unfortunately the greens need some work. The layout is fun and challenging, which is a plus. The staff was friendly but the bar/restaurant wasn't open at 11:30. It was a holiday so II understand but they were moderately busy so there was a miss on some additional revenue.

Perfect family country club! Whether you are a scratch golfer to a high handicapper, women or a man this is the place to play. Private club with 300+ members is a great place to play or just use the practice facilities. Pool and tennis courts are high quality or just enjoy a cocktail in the grill room. The golf course is well maintained and is home to PGA, Korn Ferry and Symetra tour players.

Really enjoyed my first experience at West Orange. It was a fun layout that had some quirkiness to it. It reminded me of Rio Pinar with how you could hit into the trees and still be able to play it out. Greens were in great shape and rolled nicely. Highly recommend checking this place out if given the chance.

Played WOCC for the first time last Saturday My kids take golf lessons with Brendon Chase every Friday, but I've never had the chance to play. Thankfully my buddy joined and invited us for the first time last weekend.

Course and greens were in good shape. We had a great time and would definitely love to play it again.

Played this course a week ago and didn't have a great experience. The manager called me after and assured me that what I experienced was not norm. He invited me to play again and I did. Our round took 2 1/2 hrs and we did not rush. Course was in very nice shape. Tough, true greens and beautiful fairways. I cannot say enough good things about the course and it's people, including management. Thanks George for a great golfing experience.

A great private country club with a long history in the West Orange County area. Course is an anomoly for central Florida with tree lined fairways and easy to walk. Always in excellent shape. Fast and true greens. Multiple member games each day for all skill levels. Fellowship can't be beat. Many athletic and social amenities, including tennis, swimming, dining and bar. Chef Michelle and the entire staff are magnificent. A true departure from slow, daily fee golf. No tee times and rounds are typically 3 to 3.5 hours. Truly a hidden gem in Winter Garden.

I have lived in West Orange County for 13 years and could not believe the quality and improvements that this course have undergone in the past 12 Months. I loved it so much I joined the club in February of this year.

The Course is always in fantastic condition the greens are beautiful, putting on these greens gets you spoiled, they are fast with plenty of break. Fairways, tee boxes, practice area, all TOP NOTCH. But Pace of Play is one of the reasons I love it so much, the members have multiple games going most days, and I have played in foursomes that have finished in about 3 hours.

After your round the grill has great food and friendly staff that have been with the club for years. I think it says something when a staff has been in their same job for years about how they are treated by their employers. However, the best thing about the club is how family friendly the place is. My wife, children, and I are making some wonderful memories and we all are so happy we have such a great place to enjoy.

First time player @ WOCC & it won't be the last! If you're looking for a new course to play (like I always am) or someone visiting to get an idea on courses to play you won't be disappointed with this one. Not your fancy, high level resort type of course with a lot of WOW factors. It's just a solid, well kept course which offers an enjoyable round in a nice setting. I got a 11:00 time and had most of the course for myself as a single. Breezed through and had ample time to work on my game. Great price, friendly staff led to a stress free day. The only catch to possibly watch for is the lack of cement cart paths throughout the course. There are a few holes where you'll need to pay attention to layout as there are no cart paths on certain holes. No biggie as it's pretty simple to figure out. Highly recommended
