WINTER GARDEN, Fla., January 29, 2008 – Golf Range Magazine named Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge one of the Top 100 Ranges in America for 2008. This annual award recognizes the best ranges in the country based on a number of areas: facility size, range conditions, teeing area, short game area, and pro shop.
“We are honored that our practice facility has been named one of the Top Ranges In America for the second time,” stated Bruce Gerlander, General Manager, Orange County National. “Our staff takes great pride in keeping our practice facility in the best condition possible for our guests. Our facility is host site to many premier golf events such as Golfweek Golfest and PGA Merchandise Show Demo Day, and PGA Tour Qualifying School finals. Also, many of the country’s top golf schools use our facility.”
Orange County National was one of only five facilities selected in Florida. Orange County National has the largest and most comprehensive practice facility in the country. The renowned 42-acre circular driving range offers golfers the ability to take their game to the next level. The facility features 600 tee spaces; nine large target greens; a lighted 20,000 sq. ft. putting green; an extensive short game area with two greenside and two fairway practice bunkers; two pitching and three putting and chipping greens; an indoor area for video analysis; and a 9-hole executive course. Golf lessons, clinics, and schools are available year-round.
