Lake Buena Vista
Lake Buena Vista Golf CoursesTom Fazio's Osprey Ridge at Walt Disney World has earned plenty of accolades since its opening in 1992. It's a Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course and has received four and half stars from Golf Digest. But there is another award it's worthy of: The most peaceful escape in all of Disney.The pros visiting Disney World flock to Magnolia, but regular duffers are likely to favor the Palm golf courseCountless palm trees and scores of springing fountains in its many ponds make Disney's Palm golf course feel more like a coastal, south Florida resort course than a demanding PGA Tour host.Lower-handicap golfers commonly favor Magnolia over the three other 18-hole courses at Walt Disney World for its championship pedigree. It's been a mainstay on the PGA Tour since it opened. Championship yardage here for the tour pros stretches to over 7,500 yards, and the furthest set of tees generally set up for daily play is still a meaty 7,100-plus.Of all the golf courses at Disney World, Lake Buena Vista is the one that will make you feel the most like you're in the heart of the action, located in the shadows of the Disney Institute and Downtown Disney.
