Country club conditions and treatment

Conditions were immaculate and staff was friendly and professional. Eaten lunch at the facility before my round and was able to order addtional food off the golf cart.
Course is tricky especially playing the first time. With 5 different tee boxes, any level player could enjoy this track. Voss bottle water on the house prior to the round and staff insisted on using the fully stocked facility to wash up after the round. Retail or not, this track is worth paying $.

Rep as a great course is deserved

1st class Waldorf execution of the bag drop, pro shop and 1st tee starter greeting. Large construction of new buildings is now underway. The back 9 has been shortened to just par 34 to accommodate the construction. All new greens on the back 9 are much firmer than the front, can't play shots to hole high yardage because of the extra release. Course is great shape and a good test from the blue or black tees. Definitely going back !!

Great course

Best course I’ve played on. Very challenging, water and sand traps everywhere. Make sure to hit your ball straight. Only bad thing is the food was overpriced.

Great Course! Recommend

This course was stunning. Extremely challenging for my handicap however very beautiful. Downfall right now was the project going on by the property while paying about 200 bucks for the round.. so there are some quite loud noises. Other than that had a good time. Many many elevated greens with bunkers and water on many of the Holes, misses are very penalized! Have fun!

A Shame To See The Changes To This Once Gem Of A Course

To preface my review, this round was not my first at the Waldorf-Astoria. While I understand the needs and desires of real estate owners and hotel operators to maximize property values, the recent physical changes to the course were extremely disappointing to see and experience. The layout has been compromised, not just in shortening the course to a par 70, but the changes to the hole configurations (e.g., par 5's segmented into two holes) and practice area (basically cut in half with permanent hotel function tents down the length of the area). The good news (and the reason for the two stars) is the staff remains friendly, helpful and frankly apologetic to the returning guest. And the course maintenance was superb. The bottom line? To a first time guest, the experience and value for the price paid may be acceptable. To someone who saw and enjoyed what the course once was, it was sad to see. And the lack of forewarning was also disturbing. Lastly, the revised course rating is not yet in the GHIN system, so after a better than average round, another disappointment.
PS - I cannot rate the off course amenities. Everything was closed at 4:30 PM during the holidays!

High quality course - private club experience

The Waldorf has all the trimmings of a private club - welcoming valet service on arrival, well appointed pro shop and clubhouse facilities, complimentary range balls etc. Friendly staff and high quality service. Course was in very good shape - outstanding for a public access course. Probably one of the best non-private Orlando area courses I’ve played.

Best course if ever played!

Incredible course! Brilliant Staff! Cordial fellow golfers! Approximately 8 holes were extremely intimidating but rewarding for straight drives and laser accurate irons.

very nice resort course

since the reopening of the back 9 the course is once again worthy to hold the prestigious Waldorf name. It is disappointing that the cart girl leaves early if she deems there arent enough golfers on the course for her to stay and do her job. With the restaurant closed the cart amenities is a necessity. I teed off at around 11am and never saw the beverage cart when asking at the end of the round I was told she left because after the early morning outing she had made her money in tips and didnt want to stay. very unprofessional and subpar for the Waldorf brand. to summarize, bring your own snacks and drinks as crass as that may be or you may go hungry here. the course and staff are super beyond that and definitely a great experience while in the area.

Golf cart didn’t work very well. Particularly The GPS was totally inaccurate. I was surprised that course had been modified for the building project. However the staff was very friendly. I don’t think the course is a good value for the cost.
