One word describes our first experience at Celebration Golf Club: perfect. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. The course is pristine tee to green. It's not a course for beginners as you need to think AND execute your shots to avoid the well-placed trouble at each hole. Celebration is DEFINITELY worth the price.

I know it is pretty typical for a "resort course", but 5:20 is WAY too long for a round of golf. Most surprised to find the holdup was a group of 5 inexperienced golfers hitting multiple balls off each tee while a Marshall watched as 3 groups stacked up on the 5th hole.

The course is great, the staff is friendly, but the Marshall explained the group was only playing 9 holes and we needed to be patient. 3 hours+ for 9 holes is unacceptable. We played the back under 2 hrs.

Awesome atmosphere with a nice Disney’s theme touch. Friendly and courteous staff. Good locker room facilities (only two showers). Love the rocking chairs facing the golf course in the Club House!! Perfect setting for a drink and a cigar. Easy and quick golf clubs drop-off, lots of tree shaded parking spots (short walking distance to the club). Golf carts always in good shape (no gps equipped). Very challenging golf course with plenty of unexpected water hazards and deep wooded areas. Getting out of bounds will happen easily for the average player. Bringing extra golf Balls highly recommended!!

Another enjoyable round at Celebration. The staff were friendly from the moment we arrived. We started on the back nine and the course was noticeably wet for some reason until we made the turn. Greens are tricky and the gold/silver blocks at just under 6300 yards were challenging enough for our threesome. Pace of play was 4 hours and 15 minutes and the Marshall apologized a couple times for a group ahead who played slower than the others behind them...not bad timing. Looking forward to our next round at this great course.

Always try to play this course when in Orlando. Great condition, moderately fast greens for the day we played (cold & wet). The only negative about this course is the pace of play. It's always slow. The ranger did what he could, but the layout sort of dictates several holes being slowdowns and the course is full of foursomes. You just have to expect a near 5 hour round on most weekend days. I do love the layout and design of the course though!

Even though I played from the blended blue and silver tee, you still can shoot a high number if you are not paying attention because of the water. However, it is a fun course. I always end or start my trip with this course.

Celebration Golf course is one of my favorite courses to play. The greens where a little bumpy sometimes and bunkers hard (after rainfall) but other than that the course was in great shape. Played from the gold tees and it was a real good experiance and a challange. I will come back to play here for sure.
