Staff was friendly / helpful / etc. all that you would expect from something with Waldorf on the Name. The course was in very nice condition, greens are fast and the raised greens made it a bit difficult for me and my wife. We were a twosome, with a threesome in front of us. Played in just over 4 hours. Just fine for resort course to me.

The range was very beat up where they had us placed - disappointing and the range balls weren't as nice as I would have expected.

There were groups behind us that are regulars. We didn't have anywhere to go, yet they were standing with their hands on the hips. Even though we had to wait for the group in front of us. The group behind us got into it with the group behind them. Really?

I'm local to central Florida and would not return to this course as there are courses in just as good of condition around Florida for much less money.

The Waldorf exceeded all expectations. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The conditions were great and greens rolled great. The course layout was challenging with many great water holes and views and the pace of play was quick. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Would definitely recommend, favorite amongst orlando golf courses!

Was expecting a forgiving resort course.. NOT, firstv2 holes fairly benign, then the teeth come out. Greens are fair and fast , take an extra club in as most are elevated. Spectacular conditions. Wind was brutal, service was up to par for Waldorf Astoria

Great course,plush fairways nice practice area... downfall the greens were extremely slow and very grainy. Greens just don't match the rest of the golf course if you like decent speed greens. If I had to guess probably rolling around an 8

Top shelf experience. I was excited to play here after I landed a hot deal. Typical green fees are $125 plus. For starters your car is handled by a valet, clubs shuttled to the staging area while you head to the pro shop. Cold water is provided in ice filled coolers on the cart, free range balls and adequate advice by the staff. I played from the blue tees despite a suggestion to play from the whites. My overall score was in range for my 8 handicap BUT the fairways are wet and very little roll is noted. Had I played from the whites I would have scored 5 shots better. Greens are very good and roll well.

Take the advice and play forward. I need my roll and this course does not give up much! Top notch course though!

this was one of the nices or the nices golf course I have ever played. Excelent shape of fairways,greens,tee boxes . Fairways were plush so your club just slid thru them, tee boxes were not all chewed up which was a nice change from other places, greens were out of this world no bare spots and speed was great and true ( they had rain the night before and they said the greens would be a little bit slower if that was the case I reallly did not notice) course was challenging enough for me but fair. Would with out a doubt I'd play again and again and again. The crew were very nice and helpfull great bunch.

This course and facility are in a word exceptional. The Staff from Valet to Pro Shop to Cart Prep were very friendly and accommodating. The course was in excellent condition and provided a very challenging test. The greens at the Waldorf are the best greens I have ever played, and to put that in perspective I am a 5 hdcp and have had played over a 1000 rounds at courses throughout North America and Ireland. The greens were quick and true and a complete pleasure to play on. I did not see the ball so much as wobble once throughout the round, not a bump anywhere. I highly recommend this course. It is not cheap but absolutely worth every penny.

I'm not sure why it is my favorite when I'm fully exhausted when I finish my round; both physically and mentally! This course keep you thinking at every turn. Very challenging and you must place your shots or pay the price on the scorecard. Service is top notch and the facility and course are immaculate! Thanks Waldorf!

Comparing this course to others of the same price range, the course itself and rangering was very good. However pro shop and restaurant unimpressive. Extremely slow service in restaurant very small nothing special! Pro shop was disappointing as a woman very little for woman quite small as compared to pro shops at other upper end courses!

The Waldorf never disappoints. The course was in fantastic shape and the greens were rolling nicely. Some spots were a little wet, but other than that nothing to complain about. The practice area is phenomenal. Hard to have a bad time out at the Waldorf!
