Celebration Golf course is one of my favorite courses to play. The greens where a little bumpy sometimes and bunkers hard (after rainfall) but other than that the course was in great shape. Played from the gold tees and it was a real good experiance and a challange. I will come back to play here for sure.

My tee time was 12:56, I showed up 1 hour and 15 minutes early. The clubhouse and the starter didn't have my reservation. I showed them the reservation on my cell phone (all paid for) They apologized and said they would get me off asap. I teed off with 2 other gentleman at about 12:00. It took 3 hours and 10 minutes to play 9 holes. I had an appointment at 6:00 and realized if I continued to play at that pace I would be playing in the dark. I purchased a shirt and left after only playing 9 holes. Not a Happy Round of Golf.

Placd this course many times, its close to my vacation condo and its a challenge. Pace was fine, played as a single paired with a fun duo. But, havent seen pin placement 2 much at all until this round. Brutal placement, pin was on toughest part of greens! Need to see this placement more to get those double,and triple breakers down pat!

We played early (8:50am on a Sunday), so we were hopeful to get out ahead of the slow golfers - not the case... We had a group of (from what it looked like) beginner lady golfers. After chatting with the starter for a few minutes and getting the green light to go to the tee box, we waited 15 extra minutes on the first tee watching their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th shots down and all around the fairway and bunkers... Don't worry, go ahead and putt that 4th putt on the green. Welcome to golf, pick up after double par... Luckily, we played through them on hole 10, saving us at least an extra hour or more on the back nine. I'll be back, but I'll grab the first tee time next time.

I've played this course before. Great layout and condition. Had a 1:22pm tee-time, teed off at 1:30pm waited, sometimes with 4 groups on the same hole, no one playing with any pace. Made the turn at 4:30pm. We played the front 9 again to try to get in 18 before darkness. We were in by 6:00 in the dark. Need a ranger to keep people moving. When asked he said, "it's just slow." I said, "you have the power to move people forward when they fall behind." Seems he didn't know. Would have only gotten in 12 holes if we'd stayed in line.

Great course but very slow group in front of us, no marshal on the course

Then when returned rental clubs was told had to wait for the right guy to come and check them, by this time had about enough of waiting so walked away. Very expensive to rent clubs $25 more than I paid at Hyatt Cypress

Meal voucher included but restaurant was closed so really not much point.

Course is a good layout, and the greens were good. The only problem was that they had over seeded, and the fairways were very wet. If it had been dry would have given 5 stars.

This was the second time for my wife and I and we enjoyed it even more than the first.

It’s a very sttractive lay- out with scenic landscaping ,good turf as the over seeding last week is already coming through ;

Nice greens silky smooth ,firm but still reasonably receptive.

We were paired with a delightful couple from Kentucky with whom it was a pleasure to share the round.

All the staff were friendly and courteous thanks for a great round.
