Magnolia, a flower in bloom!

This is a very playable course in very good condition. A bit easier than the Palm, especially for ladies or short hitters. It was a very enjoyable round where we met two local residents who were nice guys.

Excellent All Around!

On the day we played, there was a huge collegiate championship that afternoon, but none of that interfered with the outstanding round of golf we had! What a Day! I would highly recommend this course to all my golfing friends!!

GREAT Value

EXCELLENT Layout, with a rich history. The condition was "ok", but to me that didn't matter. I couldn't help but imagine the fairways lined with spectators, and the greats of the game bombing away from the back tees. The staff was great! My only knock was the pace of play. Because the Magnolia is a resort course, there were quite a few "non-golfers" in front of us, that played REALLY slow...... but overall, the chance to ay a former PGA Tour course for such a great value is impossible to pass on.

Goat ranch. Poor conditions, poorly managed

I will not waste money at a Disney course again. Had a poor experience at The Palm course 3/14/21.
Today another 5+ hour round. Greenside bunkers without sand but filled with hard packed mud. Most disappointing was the condition of the greens. Large areas on each green are unplayable; no amount of ‘vibrancy’ or renewed growth can overshadow the problems their greens face. Additionally if you tempt fate and play magnolia, watch your step as there are thousands of unaddressed potholes, everywhere you look, from golf course pests damaging the turf. Another reminder that consistent focus and effort over a period of time along with proper personnel management is what separates good golf from this AP golf management mess.

If members of management cared about guest experience, played the game of golf, or knew what good golf conditions looked like they would not blame a host of unrelated issues on slowed turf growth from a cold winter.

Disney visitors should head to shingle creek, the Reunion courses, grande vista or even a local municipal course if they want a better value and experience from their round.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent round at Walt Disney World® Golf. We apologize for the fact that your were displeased with the course conditions that you experienced.
We hope that you will reconsider playing our wonderful courses again in time to come, so we can exceed your expectations upon your next visit to Orlando.

We have reinvested extensively into the facilities annually. Unfortunately, the climate of recent has not been conducive to healthy turf growth, but we expect that as the weather warms up again, that the vibrancy of the turf will again return. We do have a couple of greens that have suffered extensively, but the remainder of the golf course is steadily improving.

If you would like to discuss further what you and your group encountered during your visit with our management staff, please feel free to reach out to our leadership by emailing disneygolfreservations@palmergolf.com so that we can help resolve your residual concerns.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us!
