Brutal

Played course 25 times in last 3 years, great layout and conditions usually v good. Played twice in last 3 weeks and absolutely horrendous. Beyond wet. My group lost 8 balls in fairways and in front of greens because they plugged. Workers and especially the GM refused to admit not apologize for it. Junior tournament played right before us, and were complaining up a storm as well after. Having a beer after (spending more money) and commiserating with parents of kids who just went thru heck trying the play the course, the GM came out and told us all to "stop complaining or he would call security!!"! Absolute truth. In 35 years of playing golf never seen that before.
All in all Disney ought to be ashamed - total disgrace

Beautiful but Slow

The address given for the course sent us to another course (in “Google Maps”)., so we barely got to the first tee for our scheduled time. When signing in on “Golfnow” part of the fee is paid by one of the players. That is not acknowledged at the golf course. The pace of play was too slow. Still, it is a beautiful course and I would recommend it to anyone.

Great course

Course in fantastic shape from tee to green. Was paired with a very nice twosome. Pace was right at 4 hours which is good for a resort course. Greens were a bit sandy but coming in nicely

Nice wide luxury fairways, with nice true greens.

It is Disney, so you don't get many extra's unless you want to pay for them, but the course was very nice, and we enjoyed it greatly. Will be on the list to play again.
