With all of the big name resort courses around Kissimmee, it's easy to overlook Celebration Golf Club. If you do, you are missing something special. The course was in the best shape of any we played during our week in the area, with lush fairways and only a few thin patches like were so prominent and on other courses thanks to the unusually dry spring. The course has plenty of bunkering and water to punish errant shots, but only a few forced carries. Some local knowledge would be helpful, as it is sometimes difficult to know the right way to play a hole and our cart did not have GPS (ours was a rental, as they had brought in extras for a big outing the next day, so not sure if their regular carts have it). We will definitely play Celebration again!

First time playing the course and was impressed.

Early morning tee time so there was no holdup whatsoever, however we did see a Marshall 3X during our round.

Course was very well maintained throughout, tee box to green.

Greens rolled very true and were fast.

Definitely on the list of courses to play next time in the Orlando area.

We were in town on a golf trip. Celebration was our last course of the week. The course was great. It has a quieter feel than the resort courses in the area. The driving range is unique in that you are basically hitting into water with floating balls. The course was covered in green grass on the fairways. The tee boxes were more sand than grass but wasn't a terrible thing. Some patchy rough around greens. The neighborhood surrounding the course was beautiful; houses were nice to look at. The only problem came at the turn when the snack bar was out of hot dogs...out of hot dogs? Considering the price they are charging for them and the margins from said price, it seems they would never run out of dogs. Not a big deal because we rarely get anything at turn but wanted something that day and was limited to only one other option. Celebration will be on our rotation in the future...it is worth the small price to play

Course was in very good shape other than the tee boxes. Greens are insanely fast to the point where it was boring putting, just wanted to be done with every hole. Very fast, tricky breaks and hard pins. Carts are just a bit on the slower side but not many hills. Shot 84 with a few (5 or 6) 3 putts.

I did not play the course I was told that because I

had a staff bag I would have to pay an extra $15 to

play. The starter was extremely rude and when I asked

to see the manager I was told he was busy. I found the

total experience very humiliating and I asked for my money back. I will never go back to this course.

Hello Rangerflorida,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review regarding your recent experience at Celebration Golf Club. I apologize that we were not able to accommodate your specific needs during your visit. We do not have a policy requiring anyone to pay an additional fee due to the size of their golf bag, provided that two golf bags can fit securely in the bag well. Upon requesting a cart for just yourself due to your over sized bag, a member of our management team came to speak with you and went to your cart to investigate further. As your bag was a standard staff size and would fit securely on the cart with another he asked for more information as to why you needed a cart to yourself, to which you answered that you required access to your bag compartments frequently. When asked for more information as to why in an attempt to establish a reason for exception you declined to offer any further explanation. For the enjoyment of all of our guests and to keep pricing fair and competitive, we are unable to give out individual carts complimentary upon request. Again, we apologize that we could not accommodate your needs. We hope that you choose to give Celebration Golf Club another opportunity to serve you in the future.

We had a bad experience on Thursday 4/12. We took friends who had never been there and were horrified at what a bad day it was. From starting off late to not having enough carts to having one of our carts battery go dead to waiting st every hole but we were met by John a manager with a gift card to return after our round. We did return on Monday 4/16 and had a wonderful day and everyone and everything was great. A wonderful day of golf on a wonderful course. Will be back next year. A thank you again to John for making a bad situation good.
