Orange County National (Boys 16-18)
November 24-26, 2006
The Crooked Cat
course at Orange County National features significant elevation changes, rolling
fairways and large, contoured greens. But with few trees, wide landing areas,
native heather and mounding framing the fairways, Crooked Cat presents golfers a
links-style look. It may well be the most naturally beautiful Orlando Florida
The course’s open feel encourages golfers to grip it and rip it off the tee, and there is certainly more room for error and multiple options for playing a hole—both off the tee and into the greens. Crooked Cat is not a connect-the-dots course; feel free to go outside the lines like a kindergartener’s finger painting.
