About Walt Disney World

What more can be said about The Happiest Place on Earth? It is a dreamland for children and families the world over, offering nearly every amenity imaginable, plus some only Disney's Imagineers could conceive. Golfers have their pick of three "big" courses, plus the junior-friendly Oak Trail routing...if the kids can be pried away from the parks, that is.

Disney Delivers

Palm is a nice track in nice shape. 1 beef - the player assistant - aka the Marshall - didn't seem interested in policing pace of play. The group in front of us was 2 holes out of position all day. The Marshall should be obliging slow groups to allow faster groups to play through or at minimum pressing the slow play group to speed up.

Ok choice

Course is nice but kind of blah. A lot of holes look alike but it was in good shape and the greens are nice. Staff was very nice. A bit expensive for what you get. Very noisy and busy around 1st couple of holes from Disney activities.

Overprice considering the quality of the course

Course is in average condition but green fee is high. I played other courses in the area in better shape for half of the price.

DO NOT PLAY HERE

I am a disabled golfer and was treated very poorly at Lake Buena Vista. Even if you are a fully abled golfer avoid Disney golf for people like me. People with disabilities like to be treated with dignity and respect and not overpay for a course that makes golf impossible for someone like me. This could have easily been avoided.

Slow play

Loved the course but foursome in front of us was very slow and did not know how to play ready golf. Our round took a little over 4 1/2 hours but should have been 4 hours. Waited on every hole. Ranger couldn’t even move they along.

Great Course

I believe the first time I played this course was in 1992. I have not missed a single year of playing there since. The course is always in Great shape. I will be returning to Fl after the first of the year and have 3 rounds planned toward the end of Feb. 2023.

Disney does not disappoint

Disney comes through with beautiful turf and course conditions. Add to a perfect course and weather, paying $50 for a hot deal made it even more ideal.

Great Staff/Really Good Course

Played with family, during family reunion. The staff were fantastic, especially the greeting staff and course Marshals. Pace if play was good, had to wait for some shots, but played in 4.5 hours.

Not worth full price, slow play

Rey friendly pro shop and starter was the best of the day. Very slow play due to a threesome of senior players that were absolutely clueless about course etiquette. You should be able to complete play in 1.5 hours. No Marshall on the course to keep play moving. Course conditions were so-so, nothing special for a Disney level course.lots of wild turkeys on the course. Holes 5;6;7 are real golf holes in length as the were part of the old Magnolia course. Putting green and range both closed in high season was a mystery. Glad I didn’t pay full price, did not have a good experience and. Or planning on returning.

Please note that the Driving Range adjacent to Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, as well as the putting green adjacent to the clubhouse are closed for renovations. They have both been re-built in the last few months, and we are allowing the new grass time to mature prior to any use. They should both be re-opened before the end of the year.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us!
