I will start with the bad. This course is not for beginners. I'm a beginner but actually consider myself to be very good for a beginner. After 3 holes i put the scorecard away and began to take inventory of my remaining balls. Every hole, every shot puts you at risk. There are 3-4 holes that allow you to play from another fairway on missed shots. On the rest you will find yourself in deep woods or water. The Good - Everything Else. The course is immaculate. I don't recall seeing any stressed areas. Greens were fast but fair and all were raised. Facilities are outstanding. The views will provide you with plenty photo opps. Range balls are on the house so get there early. The pro shop looked like a luxury retail store. The prices were high but...seems silly to seek out this venue then proceed to complain about prices. I will certainly return when i get better. This is the place you want to bring your serious golf buddies that come in town to play.

Playing the blue tees at 6,600 proved to be a good challenging with steady winds blowing. Fairways seemed narrow as even some good drives found fairway bunkers that are well placed. Traps are deeper than other courses and there is plenty of water holes too. Overall scenic enjoyable round and first class facility.

This is the first time I played this course. I just moved to Orlando and got a great rate on GolfNow. The course was in fantastic shape and the staff was extremely good and friendly. The only concern was the pace of play as it was very slow that day. It turned into almost a 5 hour round. However, that didn't spoil the day and it was a great time. I would definitely recommend this course.

Cant complain about the course looked lovelly and for 4 holes was great but then we got dragged in for lightening and spent an hour and half waiting to go back out and in the meantime was prety much forced/obliged to buy a bottle of water 7 dollars and 24 dollars for gourmet nachos which comprised of 8 single nachos! Dont get me wrong its a 5 star course/hotel but that still doesnt make it any better. Felt a little out of place and the guy who cleaned our clubs and gave us towels seemed to go off us a bit when we gave him 15 dollar tip as though we had not given enough?? Who knows not sure how much to tip for something like that. Would definatly play again though for sure

This course ranks in the Top 5 of my opinion in Best Course of Orlando. I would also rank this in the Top 10 of the Best Course I have played in the state.

Your drive needs to be on point with where you want to place the ball. All of the greens are elevated and run true as can be.

This was my first time playing at this course and I was just amazed how the course was laid out even for us weekend warriors. The fairways were in great shape considering being in drought conditions. The greens were very challenging making every shot count. The scenery around this course made me feel so relaxed and enjoy my time at the course. The staff was very friendly and helpful from the valet to the cart guys that wiped off my clubs and gave me a cool towel to freshen up before heading to the clubhouse. I will definitely play this course again the next time I'm in Florida.

Absolutely gorgeous golf course. Great condition from the tees to the greens. Staff could not have been nicer. We were a twosome and they were kind enough to get us out in front of a large group. It was like having the course to ourselves. Found the back nine to be a greater challenge than the front. Gave me a good workout!

This was the 2nd time I had played this course, although my 2 playing partners had not played here before. The golf course is definitely in the top 5 I have ever played (and I have been playing for over 25 years) whilst it is very challenging it does reward good golf shots. Nearly all the greens are raised just like the designers trademark suggests. On this particular day the greens were running at about 12 on the stimp which was about right given the high winds and the undulating greens. I would highly recommend playing here if you get a chance, even at a higher green fee than we payed through golfnow.

Everything from the check in to the play to the beautiful course was 5 star! I'd play here in a heartbeat. Only thing I'd be upset about was that the cart guys who loaded my vehicle left my little cooler I brought, not knowing they gave bottle water on the course, in the cart. But whatever. Great day. Thanks again!

The Waldorf course was very nice. Can tell the course could use some rain in a few spots. Most tee boxes had plenty of grass. A few bare spots. Nothing that hurt play at all. Greens rolled smooth. We're not overly fast, but were quick enough. Make no mistake that this is a player's course. Tight. Water lined. Tree lined. Huge bunkering with mounds. High lips. Come to play. The layout was good. Can't say there was a super memorable hole but all were good. Nice course. 4-5 stars all the way around.

Pace of play was far too slow, waited nearly every shot for 18 holes. I was not in a desperate hurry and it was a nice day, but what should have been an enjoyable experience became a drag.

Obviously a quality product, facilities of a high standard but would I rush back, I don't think so.

Cannot say enough good things about the course and the entire staff, to include the grounds crew workers. Was able to take advantage of an excellent "hot deal" rate. The course was not crowded. Pace of play was very comfortable. The course is a challenge with lots of variation in fairway bunker placement and water hazards. Long approach shots to the greens will find your ball rolling into water or down a steep slope.

One of the best courses and overall golf experiences I have had.
