A must stop while in Orlando area

Booked online they GolfNow. Arrived at course and we were immediately greeted and shown great service. Once we were checked in we were again given great service as all questions were answered. The course was cart path only which usually lends to a long round, not today. We stayed at the course pace of play of 4.5 hours. Pin positions were tough but accessibile. Greens were in great shape and rolling fast. I will definitely be back because the course was great, staff helpful, and I had a great all around experience

Celebration

The course was very challenging, bunkers were in great shape .. sorry to say. Greens were a challenge. Even though it looked like they had airiated the greens in the last two weeks they were in good shape.

Great Experience

Celebration is in my view the best golf course in the Central Florida region. You can notice that their staff take good care of the course conditions. Feels like you are in Disney World.

When I play golf I like to relax and enjoy a good ambient. Celebration can provide that.

Beverage Cart Anyone???

I played Celebration for the first time on Saturday. Because of the heat index and humidity and virtually no wind, I made sure before we headed out that there would be a beverage cart on the course. The signs on the pro shop and by where you get range balls both said "ON" or whatever indicated that yes, there would be. I even asked the starter, a nice gentleman who explained all the pin positions, and the usual etiquette things, and he confirmed that there would be.

We were a foursome. My best friend who was playing with us has some health issues so I was making sure for that as much as anything. He needed to stay hydrated. We did see a gal come by on about the fourth hole, then again around the 7th or so. But that was it. We didn't get anything at the turn because we knew there would be a cart person coming by for the back nine. We never saw her again. By the end of the 18, we were parched, upset and my friend especially was not doing too well.

When inquiring inside after the round to complain, the person in the pro shop basically chuckled and certainly didn't take it very seriously that's for sure. He said there was a mix-up in the schedule and they released her early (person driving the beverage cart). Okay, so you release her early. You don't think that there are golfers out in the oppressive heat in need of water or other beverages? If you knew that someone was released early, why didn't someone else step in and drive the cart around? I mean, it's not like that's a very difficult task.

I think it was horrific that you'd have a place that, a) wouldn't have found a replacement in the event of a scheduling issue - that someone else couldn't have stepped in, and b) that the guy in the pro shop handled it with such disregard for what could have been a serious health issue with the heat on an afternoon. It was at least 12-13 holes without someone coming. Had we known, we could have stopped at the turn and filled up ice with water or whatever, but no one told us or said anything.

Anyway, we were offered 25% off coupon for our next round - which only had 2 week time frame on it but we all refused because we were upset, grumpy and not at all too open to the idea of coming back anytime soon.

I'm sure this is not the kind of experience you want for first time guests of your club. We just moved from Dallas and this might have been a place we'd frequent. Now I'm not so sure.

Next time you do schedules on something so important in this heat - AND since you posted beverage carts would be available on the signs as I pointed out, then you should make sure they are, and have someone on standby in case someone was sent home early. I'm still fuming about this quite honestly.

The course itself was okay but appears to have some serious drainage issues. The course was extremely wet and soggy with mud on the ball on nearly every shot. The course was a bit of a letdown to be honest. Perhaps the lack of any fluids for the last 12-13 holes put a damper on things. Ridiculous. We won't be back.

Great course, stupid rules

The course and practice area are fantastic and I got a good deal to play in the afternoon in late August (the off season in Florida). I would definitely recommend playing this course which is in excellent condition and keep that in mind as I describe why I removed 1 star.

I had to remove a star because they have one of the dumbest rules I've ever heard of in my 25 years playing golf. The cart kid told me that my playing partner and I were not allowed to share clubs from 1 bag due to 'pace of play' reasons. He pushed for us to rent a set of clubs per 'club rules.' This is incredibly stupid for a number of reasons:

1. We hadn't teed off yet so they do not know what our pace of play would be. For the record we played 12 holes in 2 hours and 15 minutes. If we're not slowing up the course this sharing clubs issue shouldn't even be brought up.

2. The entire tee sheet all day was empty. I know because I booked my tee time using golfnow a few hours before hand and every tee time was available.

3. I had 2 putters and 4 wedges in the bag so that no time would be lost to passing clubs when chipping or putting

4. In the extreme heat in Florida, everyone drives to a golf ball, then waits there while their partner hits to let the partner get back into the cart before driving to their ball. Therefore you're not wasting any time if both players are pulling from 1 bag. They're almost always hitting shots at different times.

This idiotic rule just felt like a money grab attempt and something they can't justify when challenged. They just keep saying it's the 'club rules.' News for management... it doesn't have to be, particularly in your off season on a day when 10 people were on the course.

We would like to apologize for the confusion due to our no sharing golf clubs rule. Unfortunately, this is a rule that is established at our golf club and others. Outside of that rule, we hope that you had a great time playing our golf course. Please come back and visit us soon.

Celebration

Course layout is fun, can be challenging from the tips and very playable from the middle set of tees. Condition was mostly room for this time of year though some of the fairways were a little crusty. Pace wasn’t great. Tough to justify a 5 hour round mid week when you can drive the fairways.
