I'm heading to Orlando in a couple of weeks, Osprey Ridge is on my list. So if Panther Lakes and Crooked Cat and I'm currently trying to decide it TPC Sawgrass is worth it. Planning of at least 2 more courses.
TPC Sawgrass is one of those... "I played it..." courses. Everybody should play it once if they can. That being said, it's heavily overprices IMO. Being local I've played it about a doz times I guess, and really have no desire to play it at full price, which I think is north of $300. But, find a deal, a package, etc and it starts to look better. For me, $125 is about what I like to pay for it, no more.
Sawgrass CC across the street is a much nicer course I believe, just doesn't have the TV hype. You'll need a reciprocal to get on though. Plantation at Ponte Vedra as well, I'd pick either over TPC for course layout and condition. If you just want to play a nice course "on the way down" to Orlando, I'd suggest Red Tail or Palenica, or the LPGA Intl courses.
Panther and CC... Panther is cool, CC is just ok. But if you are going/staying there might as well play both. Check out Sabram's info and site, he has a lot of good info I always read up on it before heading down to magic town... For something different you can try the New Course at Cypress, it was a blast to play. Or head down to Polk county and hit up Streamsong, for that matter...
