Owner description: Embark on a course to become one with nature when you set out to play 18 holes at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club(R) Orlando, Grande Lakes. A Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary, the golf course blends into the natural landscape, protecting natural resources and habitats while enhancing the overall golf experience. Designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman, the course blends a variety of hazards to provide a challenging but fair test of a golfer's abilities resulting in an atmosphere reminiscent of a private course.

“Get out and play”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Played two rounds and really enjoyed the place. Great outside staff and excellent practice facilities. Greens have more slope than you think, pick your tee box wisely and hit fairways. Saw my first alligator sunning itself near one of the greens. Couldn't remember the hole number but it was cool. Pack extra ammo (balls) because you won't want to go looking for balls that are in the trees or near the ponds.

“Good course, better staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

Although we played on the coldest day for Florida in a long time, we enjoyed our round thoroughly. As soon as we walked in, the pro shop staff was extremely nice and very helpful. As we prepared to get in the cart, the two starters were helpful and friendly. The course and experience is better than the price you pay for. Also, the greens were pretty slick. Would be happy to go back!

“Never dissatisfied. ”

My wife and I attended a wedding held at the Ritz Carlton in Orlando and it was simply beautiful. We stayed the night as well and the service / accommodations were terrific.

“Not really a Ritz”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 November 2013

We stayed at the Ritz for a night last week. We were excited about staying at the Ritz and for a great rate from orbitz which we prepaid. When I checked in they charged me again for the room even after I asked them if they were just going to charge my card for incidentals. Well in the end they ended up charging me for both and it took 5 says to release on my credit card. The room we stayed in was very small and not very well apportioned. We ask for a crib for our son and the crib was dirty and old. We decided to stay in for the night and had very OVERPRICED room service that was no better then airport food. As a Ritz, this really is a disappointment!! The hotel is connected to the Marriot which had cheaper rooms and a great lazy river. Don't waste your money thinking you are heading to a RITZ!!!

“Nice, but others are better.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Nice course but the layout is very plain and almost boring. There is not much to the course. The condition is excellent and the service was topnotch. But overall, it is just an ok course. Grande Pines is a much better layout and far more enjoyable to play. If you have extra time play here but only after you tried others like Grande Pines and Grand Cypress.
