The Celebration Golf Course is very well maintained. Although they have not had much rain lately, the course was in very good condition. We played it on a beautiful day in April. It's a challenging course but you will enjoy the it. There was abundant wild life throughout the course and some of the tree's are very beautiful with the moss hanging from them. The practice range is interesting. You hit balls to island greens. They give you 20 golf balls in a small bucket. It would be nice if they gave you about 40 balls to warmup. The practice chipping and putting areas are nice and I recommend you get to the golf course early to take advantage of the practice areas. Once you finish playing the Celebration village/town is very close by for a nice lunch or dinner. I would highly recommend playing this course and seeing the Celebration area.

As we were finishing up our round a golf cart came up to our group with loud music playing in their cart as we were teeing off. After paying a rather steep price to play it was unexpected and rather rude. Another gentleman yelled at us saying this is best ball. Which obviously didn't apply to us??

On this day the only thing we could say is that a friendly reminder to the group ahead of us would have been helpful. A very SLOW foursomes was ahead of us for 5 holes taking their good natured time and didn't wave us through. There wasn't anyone ahead of them and there only was 2 of us do we obviously could go faster. On 10 we did ask because they had bought hot dogs but even then we had to ask them. After that we flew through back 9. O Easter Sunday we again ran into slow play but at least the Foursome ahead of us had an excuse, there was a foursome ahead of them so we just enjoyed the beautiful day and waited.

Started off with friendly reception by various staff members but in particular the starter who was most helpful and friendly? Greens, fairways, traps, rough were all in very good condition. ALL the tees need work.

Paired with another couple who were a delight to play with. Pace of play was perfect as friendly ranger was consistently visible and helpful. Only course I've played in the recent past that invested in ranger service.

Can't wait to go back!!

If you are picky about courses, this is one, pristine condition, friendly staff, somewhat pricey but worth it. Played the golds to about 6400 yds and good degree of difficulty. Greens very true, this is so important if you want a bang for your buck but really everything was top notch. I usually wait out for a good deal on the websites, anything around 55-70$ you should take it.

Very nice course for the money. Located in an upscale neighborhood in the Disney orbit of Orlando. As others have observed the pace of play can be slow. Nevertheless my wife and I really enjoyed our round. We had a later tee time but arrived early and they had an opening to send us out earlier. Very nice accommodation.

There are hundreds of courses in this country that say there's water on the golf course but Celebration really uses the water features that they have. Here, water really is a hazard on almost every hole. With forced carries, water that runs the length of par fives and greenside ponds this course truly uses everything it has to test your game. As for condition everything from tee boxes to greens were in really great shape on this day. So when it comes to celebration bring your A game and maybe an extra sleeve of balls.

Played as a single and got pair up with nice folks who tolerated me playing the back tees while they played silver and white. Course in good shape - but not great as greens were on bumpy side. Driving range is bit unusual as you hit "floater" balls into a lake with some island targets. Good area and to practice chipping and putting. Nice clubhouse and changing room. Overall good and glad to have played. I give 4 stars but quite away from 5

Condition was very nice. Greens, tees fairways all very good. Driving range is a water range. Not the biggest fan. Short game practice area below average at best. So, we were just a twosome. $200 to play. $70 for lunch. Bought beers at the bar. Didn't have enough ice, so asked the cart girl for ice. Told us she would give us one cup of ice. For that, I'll never go back.

Hello u644166499

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your recent experience with us. We appreciate your kind words and 4 star rating. I am concerned however with the situation regarding the cup of ice. I will look into this immediately and can assure you that this is not a policy nor practice of ours. Regardless of money spent, cups of ice are available to all our guests as needed. I appreciate you letting us know of this and hope that you will reconsider revisiting and enjoying Celebration again in the near future.

It took 5 anode a half hours to play and no one was concerned about it, after 9 holes I told the starter and he just shrugged it off. We told the ranger who we saw only once and he looked at me with scorn, who was I to complain.you will never see us again. Course was very dry, spots like cement.

Hello romanchych,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your recent visit to Celebration. I apologize that you did not enjoy your experience with us. We understand that a slow pace is very frustrating and never take this lightly. We did have several issues during the morning on this particular day that caused a slowdown for the entire course. We had multiple team members working on this throughout the late morning and afternoon but were unfortunately unsuccessful in alleviating the situation. I apologize that you feel your concern was not received with importance, however I can assure you that we take every guest concern seriously. We were well aware of the situation and actively working to correct it. I would love the opportunity to discuss your experience with you further. Please contact me at your convenience at jbixler@celebrationgolf.com so I may address your concerns personally. Again, I am very sorry for the issues you encountered and hope to have the opportunity to show you a proper Celebration experience.

The course was in good shape but is not worth the full rate $129 and even $49 I paid was too high. There a lot of course in Canada that are far superior to this for less mone.
