Had the chance to play Waldorf today for the first time. We had a great time. The whole group was really surprised; this was A LOT of golf course. We played one set of tees up and this was still more than enough. The course was in great shape and I would gladly play again.

Played as twosome. Some places the course was wet, still remainder from Irma. The pace was not very fast, as there were players in front of us playing partly very slow. That was also why we could not finish the round and had to rush to the club house from the 16th green!

The course is very nice but I have played there as the place was in much better condition… Greens are rather fast. Fairways (if not wet…) good, tee boxes and bunkers are well playable. Very good training facility. Staff cordial.

Loved the layout but beware the yardage numbers. Course plays longer than the scorecard indicates because of strategic placement of hazards that sometimes require the player to lay up behind the trouble. Thus, I would recommend playing a tee back from your usual comfortable yardage. Course is in excellent shape and even with the recent top dressing the greens rolled true albeit a bit slow. Staff is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this golf course and look forward to playing it again.

This is a great layout. Course has been used as a U.S Open Qualifier and you can see why. Tee shots need to be pretty straight as anything beyond first cut is in trouble. Despite the recent hurricane there was very little sign of any damage with fairways and greens in excellent shape. Service could not be faulted from the bag drop to the starter all the way to the dining room. Should be on all bucket lists and I will be back

The Waldorf was in great shape considering it had just been through a hurricane. The greens were rolling nice and the fairways were in great shape. There was some standing water and debris around the course, as expected. The only thing that hindered play were the washouts in the bunkers (which they were fixing as we played).

The course is a fairly tough track with a lot of places to get into trouble off the tee. Most holes are lined with water or bunkers.

The greens are nice and roll true but can make it tough to save a par if you miss them on the wrong side. Just like the starter said, "they are elevated and if you go long, you're going to be in trouble".

The only complaint that we had about the course was the pace of play. Because a lot of courses in the area were still closed, the tee sheet was completely filled before and after us. We played as a threesome in just under 5 hours, but it felt like longer since we were waiting on just about every tee box.

Overall, we had a great experience at the Waldorf and would recommend it to anyone visiting Orlando or to anyone who lives in the area and is looking for something above average. We caught a mid-morning rate of $60/round which is a fair price for the course and the shape that it was in.

Very friendly staff iand great amenities like complementary range balls and water etc. Golf course was in fantastic shape except for the bunkers which had water in them from the hurricane. Considering this course went through a hurricane 5 days earlier, the grounds crew did a superb job of getting the course backi in championship shape. I was surprised that the range was fairly short in length given where they had golfes setting up for practice but that's the only downside to this golf course.

From teebox to green (we played from the whites), the layout is challenging and demands good course management to score. Fairways were not generous in width so if your drives couldn't wander too far left or right without hitting traps which were strategically placed in typical landing area locations. Greens rolled really well, and we're predictable if you took a little time to read them. Pins had the prisms so it made it really easy with laser rangefinders.

Fairways were in excellent shape and the ball sat up nicely setting you up for solid contact with a goid swing. As I said above, traps were in pretty rough shape with standing water in some of them but the staff had warned us ahead of time that this was on their radar to get fixed up in the next few weeks. Didn't end up being a problem because you could just take a drop in an area of the trap that was suitable. That's the only reason why I didn't give the course 5 stars under course conditions. The rough around the greens was very thick and the ball nestled down into the rough so it was difficult to make clean contact without a really good strike on the ball.

It was hot that day but it was a beautiful out and I have to say one of the more enjoyable rounds I've had since I've been down here in Orlando.

Definitely recommend for golfers at all levels to experience at least once.

Played on Labor Day weekend. It's been a wet summer but this is the soggiest track in Orlando, with the exception of the greens. Plugged quite a few drives into the fairways. Beyond that, most every hole is straight with bunkers on both sides of the fairway, with approach shots to an elevated green surrounded by bunkers. I can't remember many of the holes...Wish there were more out there like 13 & 15. Save your $$ and play elsewhere! Staff is very friendly and welcoming, but the golf course won't bring me back.

For a resort golf course this was by far one of the best I have played. Staff was fantastic. From the bag drop to the tee each of the team members explained what would happen. The valet told me to not worry about anything..."we'll get your clubs to the tee, you just focus on birdies today"! Staff members knowledge and desire to provide excellent customer service was outstanding!

It's Florida in the summer, so it rains every afternoon. We took a truck that had tonneau cover on back so clubs would t get wet on ride there or back. Valet took truck and unloaded clubs for us which is great. Only problem was they didn't shut the cover back and all our shoes were in the back. It rained while we golfed which wasn't that big of a deal til we got to the truck and it's outing with cover open. Other than that everything else was great.

Played on a very hot day (as expected, Orlando in August). Was surprised to find out it was cart path only. With the heat, it was difficult to have to continually walk across the fairway rather than being able to drive. The course was VERY wet, causing shots to plug in the fairway - no roll out. This made the course play quite a bit longer. Played another area course the day before and it wasn't nearly as wet, so perhaps this course doesn't drain as well. The course is difficult - miss a fairway or green by a few yards and you may be penalized. Bring an extra couple sleeves of balls.

The course is beautiful and the greens were fast and rolled true. The course is very well manicured; the only reason I didn't rate it higher for course condition was that it was just so wet that day.

The staff was excellent, friendly and helpful. Range balls and 2 bottles of water per person were included in the price. Overall I would recommend playing this course but call ahead to see if it is cart path only, if that is a factor for you.
