Stupid play suspension rule

Booked a tee time for 5.40. Arrived at 5 when weather was a bit nasty. Close by lightning and a storm. Miserable head pro Mark and dark haired female assistant with glasses couldn’t have been more unfriendly and unhelpful if they tried. The answer to my question: “is it likely we’ll get out?” was “No clue!”.
Eventually, after demanding more clarity, the woman said it was down to Disney to lift the suspension not the course. We waited outside in the cart and bag drop area. The two guys there - one called Jo and another guy from Connecticut were awesome and put the guys in the pro shop to shame.
The really annoying thing was that the storm quickly passed and we were left waiting still while the skies were blue. To make it worse, if you had started your round but had come in temporarily, you were allowed to go back out and resume your round. However, if you hadn’t started your round you were not permitted to start. So we had to watch a bunch of guys jump back in their carts and go out to play while we were held back.
The guys in the pro shop - miserable Mark and his assistant - told us to wait outside and they would give us updates. But they never bothered to come out and check or provide any information, leaving it up to us to keep going back in every 10 minutes only to be told no news. Eventually we walked back in to the pro shop and asked for an update. They then said there’s no more play that day. Thanks for coming out to tell us guys!!
What a miserable example of customer service!

The greatest place on turf

Besides the weather being hot, I know Mickey doesn't control that, the course was fun.
The starter was engaged and friendly, and got us going with a laugh.
Resort style golf, so pace of play is a little slower, expect to spend 4-5 hours here.
Pricey amenities, but it's Disney so no surprise.
Wide fairways for an easy drive.

Good Round

Disney LBV is one of my favorites. Course was in great shape minus the greens. Veery hairy and not rolling true. Also normally the staff is on top of things, but didn't offer the freee range balls or tell us they weren't on the range. Also, didn't offer to clean clubs after round, which I am always happy to tip for. Oh well could have been an off day, I love that track.

Fun layout, Great conditions

I like the difference between the front and back nine. The course had character, with unique holes and scenery. It could have drained a little better but the course was in solid condition.

Nice course

Course was in good condition considering lack of rain and heat fairways were green and fluffy. Evan if you were off the fairway you still had a decent lie. Open fairways made tee off easy but every green is protected by bunkers. Your approach better be on point.

Great course…Excellent pace of play.

Had a 6:30am tee time with two other golfers. Finished in 3 1/2 hours and we played behind a foursome. Loved the layout and the scenery. Fairways and greens were in good condition. Lots of water, but layout wasn’t that difficult. Pace of play might be longer for a later tee time, but I would definitely play the course again even if it took 4 1/2 to 5 hours to complete. Just like how the kids are amazed when walking into a Disney park, I had that feeling when walking onto the course.
