Designed by astute fairway carver Mike Dasher, Orange Lake Resort’s nine-hole Crane’s Bend course spans 1,901 yards of scenic terrain that pay homage to the area’s native topography and waterfowl. The undulating utopia encircles a pristine lake, where a central fountain showers the water in a steady mist and the freshly liberated spirits of drowned golf balls. Golfers still hoping to swing their way to a hole-in-one will appreciate the par-30 course’s six par 3s, while three par 4s allow long-ball lovers to unleash considerable power.
With today’s deal, lone linksmen or divot-tearing duos can loop the nine-hole labyrinth as many times as possible in one day after preparing their swings with a session at the driving range. The package also includes use of the resort’s rental clubs for golfers without a serviceable set of irons, woods, or hard-hitting mannequin legs.

Orange Lake Resort
The splendid fairways of four scenic golf courses blanket the grounds at Orange Lake Resort, drawing in clubbers with layouts designed by some of golf’s premier architects. Originally crafted by Joe Lee—whose resumé includes the Dubsdread course, recent host of the PGA Tour’s BMW Championship—The Reserve has since been refurbished by Mike Dasher to challenge golfers with more bunkers, water hazards, and pelicans trained to give bad reads on every green. Arnold Palmer’s course-design company lent its skills to two fittingly named courses: The Legends, a 7,071-yard course that incorporates both open, links-style elements and pine-lined, woodland holes in a seamless layout, and Legends Walk, a nine-hole executive course with five sets of tees and lights for post-sunset pin hunting. The nine-hole Crane’s Bend course rounds out the quartet with an undulating utopia encircling a pristine lake where a central fountain showers the water with a steady mist and the freshly liberated spirits of drowned golf balls.
