The course was in excellent shape. The rough was about 2 inches but gòod grass. The greens were in very good condition. Pace of play was very slow but the marshal couldn't get the tournament player's, that were a few foursomws in front of us to move at a suitable pace.

The course only provides a dozen range balls.

The marshal chewed my wife out for our foursome’s pace of play yet we had to wait on the foursome in front of us on every shot. After we subsequently pointed this out to the marshal, he apologized. There are a number of better courses for your money than this one.

The course was in a wonderful part of Orlando(Celebration) which reminds you of the Truman Show movie setting. Beautiful homes along the golf course and near perfect golf conditions. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I will seek out this course next time I visit. Well worth the price.

The course and staff were outstanding. The driving range is toward island greens in a lake. Interesting start to the day. The rest of the day you need to avoid the water. Staff went above and beyond to make the day enjoyable.

Yesterday I played the Celebration Golf Course and the experience was horrible. It began when the Starter rushed us out on the course only to run into a huge delay after hole #2. The delayed lengthed after finishing #3 I called the club house to alert them to a groups(s) playing slow ahead on holes 5&6 that is creating delays in the pace of play. Never saw a Ranger until hole #8. The average time to play a hole on the front nine was 19 minutes per hole. That results in a 5 hour 35 minute round of golf. Other issues like we never saw the Cart Girl until hole #8, why bother?! we can grab some food and drinks at the turn.

Icing on the cake of this disaster was at the 19th hole we ordered wings and nachos and the waitress said they were out of both. I'm not kidding!

The experience was horrible from start to finish so I wanted to write this review to keep other golfers from this horrible course.

Hello allenroosa,

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent visit. I apologize that the experience did not meet your expectations. We understand that a slower than normal pace of play can be very frustrating and never want that to be the case. Unfortunately we did have a large group on this particular day that caused an issue. I apologize that the ranger was not able to speak with you sooner than hole #8 however both him and one of our Operations Supervisors were completely engaged in dealing with the slow groups. I also would like to apologize for our food and beverage team not being able to accommodate you as well both on, and off the course. We take every guest experience very seriously which is why I would love the opportunity to speak with you personally regarding the issues you encountered. I can be reached directly at jbixler@celebrationgolf.com or 407-566-4653 ext 4611. Thank you again for providing us your feedback. We hope to have the opportunity to make up for this experience and earn your business and support once again. - John Bixler, GM

Greens are heavily sloped and were faster than group is used to the day we played - Stimp probably around 11. It was cool and there was a 2-club wind the entire round with many holes right into the teeth of it. Made for a challenging day.

Solid course, tee boxes were pretty rough but the fairways and greens were in great shape. Cart was dying on the 5th hole. Called the pro shop, was never sent out another cart. Had to push the cart up the hills on the 9th. Overall a very good course, price is a little high though.
