Disney Golf Courses for the Pro and Weekend Golfer

Experience the Disney Golf Courses in Orlando

There are such a lot of things to do at Walt Disney World, and if you’re a golfer you can add one more thing to the list.  There are four excellent Disney Golf Courses, of which three are part of the PGA tour, plus a par 36 practice golf course.  All are open to the public, and when you are a resort visitor there are some additional amenities you may be able to take advantage of.  Here is a breakdown of all five.  The first three have GPS devices on the cart, and the prices will include cart rental plus green fees:


1.     Osprey Ridge Golf Course.  This golf course is rated one of the top public golf courses in Florida.  One of the reasons I liked it was because of its secluded feeling.  It has dramatically elevated greens and tees, and its rolling fairways are cut through a forest of pines, cypress and oaks.  It is a little bit removed from the Disney activity, but it’s worth going to.

2.    Magnolia Golf Course.  This golf course in addition to the Palm Course is found by the Disney Polynesian Resort, not far from the Magic Kingdom.  This is the longest of the Disney golf courses, and it takes its name obviously from the 1500 magnolia trees on the course.  While it is long, its fairways are especially wide, but eleven of the holes you will have to contend with water.

3.    Palm Golf Course.  The professionals who play this golf course every year at the National Car Rental Golf Classic rate this course the most difficult.  Like Osprey Ridge it will take you back into the encompassing Florida woodlands.  It is visually spectacular, with tight tree-lined fairways and elevated greens and tees.  This course is ranked in the top 75 resort courses in America, and the 18th has been rated number four on the toughest golf holes in the PGA tour list.


4.    Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.  Let’s say you’re looking for just a leisurely game of golf that’s not as demanding as the other three, this is perhaps the place to go.  The course is in fact shorter and also the fairways are fairly open, however the greens are small and well-protected.  Number 7 is a memorable golf hole; it’s an island green that is challenging, but enjoyable.  It is located not far from Downtown Disney and the Saratoga Springs Resort.

5.    Oak Trail Golf Course.  The 2913 yard nine-hole course is a par-36 walking course, and is excellent if you simply want to get in a quick nine holes.  You can find it by their Magnolia course.

Disney World has made it straightforward for you to play if you are staying at one of their properties.  They offer free transportation to and from the course if you contact bell services the night prior to your wanting to play.  Club rentals are $55, and if you are a resort guest you can save around $15 per round over the fee charged if you are not.  Possibly the best deal is if you get a two-round pass for $140, saving you a few dollars compared with the single-round cost.
