Overall a Great course, staff was very friendly and was able to get us out a little earlier than our reserved t times. The course was in super condition with fairway and greens well maintained. We played the combo t's (silver & gold) and that did make finding t box a little difficult (hole#8). Nothing really to gripe about but a few more range balls would have been nice as we were given maybe 12-15 balls per basket. Recommend highly

The course is just okay. The greens were top dressed. The pace of play was poor as around lasted over five hours. There is nothing spectacular about the course. The layout is simplistic at best.

Played Celebration for the first time. Lovely course and layout. Course condition was a bit wet from the recent hurricane weather and rains. But with a hot deal for $16 on golf now - I wasn't complaining! Unfortunetly we only got 12 holes in and then got completely soaked with thunder and lightning storm! Will be back to hopefully play again during our stay in Orlando.

The staff is very professional and incredibly friendly, from the cart attendant to the pro shop staff to the starter to the restaurant staff, all are well trained, proactive and courteous. The course is challenging but fair, greens ran well enough for having been punched 10 days ago we got a little bit of rain but that didn't ruin our day. I play probably 40 to 50 rounds a year and this is one of my favorite courses to play.

This course used to be great. It has been a few years since I had played it. Course used to have lush fairways and great greens now both are lacking for grass. Was disappointed because this used to be one of my favorite courses in the Orlando area but not now. Probably will not go back

I'm a member at a local resort with 3 courses to play, still I almost always play Celebration at least once each trip to Orlando. It is always in top form. Although I marked it down for condition this time it is only the first day the back nine is open post Irma so completely understandable.

I recommend this course to everyone I know coming to Orlando to golf.

2nd time playing this course. Booked online and noticed "course alert" but no details besides that. Arrived and found out that only 9 holes were playable and that there would be people teeing off the same time we would be make the "turn." As you can expect, pace of play was terrible on the 2nd set of 9. Also, at the conclusion of the round the ball boy made no offer to clean our clubs. He basically asked us how our round was and went back into his shack. Great experience 1st time here. Not sure what happened this time around.

Obviously golf courses take a lot of maintaining and celebration is in great condition challenging and pure fast greens that take all your attention

However once this corse gets the slightest bit wet they make you stay on cart path to protect the grass which makes having a cart pointless as walking back and fourth your ball carrying clubs in 95 degree heat is no fun

So if your thinking of playing here great but phone to check first to see if carts are allowed on corse if not give it a miss

Personally when the grass is more important than the people playing on it something's wrong ,( its grass it recovers )
