Played yesterday. They only offer a golf plus meal rate be after playing had my family meet me for lunch. We were told there was no space and could eat outside - in 90 + degrees. As I couldn't use the lunch voucher I asked what can be done and they said come back another time. Staff didn't care or try to accommodate at all.

Besides this the course was in poor Condition. Some green had parts cut out and seemed like some kind of disease. It had rained a lot but the course was very wet. Too wet! I played other courses this week and all handles the rain much better.

Pace of play was pretty slow.

All in all a bad experience.

While many reviewers want to complain about the length of the round, you need to remember it's right outside Disney plus other world recognized theme parks. We were a mixed 4some, teed off on time and played in 4 hours and 20 minutes. Given the weather extremes of 2017 in much of Florida, the course was in fantastic shape. Friendly staff, good food, and NO complaints from our 4some.

This is an outstanding golf course that I highly recommend playing. The tee shot is key at this course. For longer hitters there is a lot of trouble that comes into play with driver so you may need to back off on several holes. But there are still plenty of holes to hit driver. A high handicap golfer will really struggle here. So long as you find the fairway off the tee, the course is not altogether that difficult. Large, undulating greens that aren't overly fast. It's a very fair but challenging layout that requires precision off the tee and with approach shots. Pace of play was not a problem and the staff was very friendly. Great golf course.

Great Course. It has been raining every day and I called to find out what condition the course was in. The course was cart path only which was not a surprise but the course was still very nice with very few wet spots. We had lunch at course and it was a nice club house area. We will definitely play there again on our next visit.

I paid my fee through golfnow and turned up to play. My deal was a round of golf including cart. I am on holiday with my disabled wife and can't leave her for five hours in our hotel, so she likes to ride the cart with me. This is the first course that has charged me 32 bucks for her accompanying me on my round. Considering the wetness of the ground and the slow pace of play (which I brought to the attention of the marshal)and charging for a rider i wont be back.

Thank you for letting us know about your recent visit to Celebration Golf Club and for taking the time to speak with me personally about your experience. As we discussed, the $25 rider fee that was charged was the incorrect amount and has been taken care of. I apologize again for the inconvenience. We have always prided ourselves on being as accommodating as possible for our guests and will work further with our newer team members to understand this as well. I know it can seem a bit slow when you are stuck behind threesomes and foursomes as a single, but I am glad that they ended up letting you play through and you finished in an appropriate time. Again, thank you for your feedback and opportunity to speak to you directly. We hope to have you back out at the course again soon for a more appropriate Celebration experience.

The course was in excellent condition even though aeration of the greens made the roll a bit bouncy. Challenging layout with plenty of water to contend with. Overall a wonderful experience. Look forward to playing again soon.

Excellent! We're glad to hear the course conditions were exceptional. We did not aerify the course this summer - we use a pencil tine method instead, but we're glad your round was not affected. Come back and enjoy the course and the challenge, we look forward to seeing you soon.

I love RTJ courses, and this is one of the best (that I have tried). Playing this course was one of the highlights of my golf vacation - I played 7 courses in 8 days in the Orlando area.

The course is designed by someone who loves golf and that makes playing it just a super fun experience. The flow of the layout allows you to hit fun shots, and the condition of the course when I was there in late May was just gorgeous - soft fluffy fairways and smooth greens. The setting in Celebration and everything from the "old movie"-music that is played outdoors around the clubhouse area to the perfectly groomed palm trees and other vegetation surrounding the course just makes you feel like you are in a movie (in the good way).

The staff was super friendly, and I got to play the round with some of the locals and they were so nice and really makes you feel welcome.

Only thing I thought was not so great was the whole "non resident" pricing policy. Despite getting an online discount I still paid 25 dollars more than the guy behind me in line at the proshop.

Other courses I played on my trip was Champions Gate Int, Champions Gate Country Club, Legends of Orange Lake, Disney's Magnolia and Disney's Buena Vista Lake, and finally Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill.

The course layout is FANTASTIC. Although it is a little dry right now since we have had very little rain this year.. but with that in mind, the course does a great job trying to keep everything lush and green. The pace of play was very slow, but after the marshal came around, it picked up some. I highly recommend Celebration for a a great golf day.

overall, a great experience. Very surprising to see the course backed up on a Thursday afternoon, 230p. Ranger tried to move folks along, to no avail. No concept of ready golf. Great starter, got me off in front of a group of 12. Unfortunately the 12 pushed me all day as a result of a twosome, a single and a twosome in front of me. Very painful waiting experience. All employees were nice. If pace of play wasn't an issue, easily 5 stars.
