I have played at celebration multiple times and should have questioned the rate they had going for a Rd. Other then the greens and bunkers, the rest of the course was in awful shape. I can't remember a tee box that had grass and the fairways were mostly dead and dirt. With that being said, the greens were in very good shape.

Let me start off by talking about all of the positives on my round. The greens were in fantastic shape. Rolled very nicely and quite fast. The service across the board was exceptional and the food was delicious. I was very underwhelmed with the pace of play as it was around 5 hours. The tee boxes were in terrible shape, which is quite surprising given who nice celebration has always been in the past. Still one of my favorite tracks may just wait a little while before returning.

Cashier Kathy was rude. Ended up only playing 9 holes, went back in to get range balls and asked for small bucket. Even though there was a price list for small, medium, and large right on top of the counter, I received a smirk and was told "we usually only sell medium and large...the small is for hitting balls before the round." She shook her head and begrudgingly sold the small bucket. I have been to celebration many times and never had this kind of service.

I have been wanting to play this course for a long time, and when I saw a low price on GN for residents I grabbed it. I have owned a home in the area for some time, and have always booked the resident rates. I carry an electric bill, as well as other proof of local ownership with me. Most courses do not even ask, and those that have fully accept the documentation I carry.

Celebration is the one an only course that I’ve encountered who insists on a FL drivers license. The person at the counter is merely filling the established rules, and the “manager” too the same approach. I convinced the manager to give the resident rate, it he made a point to mark this in my profile for future Due to this and the $30 difference in price (at this time of year) between resident and non, I will not return. There are far to many great courses in the area that are happy to have my business.

The course is very nice. Visually appealing with nice homes along the fairways, and water everywhere which creates a nice visual effect. My only criticism of the course was the tee boxes. They are uneven, and sparce with grass in some cases. I found myself teeing off on an incline, or with the ball below my feet on a number of holes.

The staff was generally helpful. Resteraunt was good for a post game bite to eat, and the carts are among the nicest I’ve ever seen. No on course refreshment cart.

Pace of play was a bit over 4 hours.

If it were not for the resident rate issue, I would return.

Commented on 07/13/2018

I think you missed my point. I understand that you have resident and non resident rates. As a local home owner, I question your burden of proof. You need to be open to more than a drivers license.

Just a standard Florida golf course. Nothing great nothing too bad. Total beige golf but good for the money.

Just get a grip about pace of play. It’s a disease in America right now. Life is to be enjoyed at a leisurely pace without the worry of little men in white hats running about like the Alice in wonderland rabbit. Relax folks have a Cadbury caramel.

The course does not drain well. If you are playing during the rainy months, expect it to be cart path only most of the time.

It is one of my favorite courses in Orlando, but always have issues playing in the summer due to the low ground conditions and poor drainage.

Had to pay several MORE dollars to get on the course above and beyond the what I thought was a paid in full prepaid through GolfNow. Seems that they want you to chip in extra money for their conservation. Charges should be advised up front during the booking process.

I personally don't like to have cart attendants messing with my clubs. Very expensive custom set. I told the cart attendant that I would take care of my equipment and off load my clubs, he became overbearing to the extent I had to forcibly tell him to back off and get away from me while I was preparing my bag for off load to my car.

As he finally walked away so I could do what I needed to do, he made some snyd remark not consistent with good customer service.

I won't golf there again!

Have played Celebration a few times now and each time is always a real pleasure. Great welcome at bag drop, check-in and starter which always makes it feel special. Greens had recently been sanded but this did not affect the speed (quick) or line as they are always very true and in great shape. Some really tough holes with lots of water in play but nothing unfair. Hit good shots and you will be rewarded. Apart from the abundant wildlife it is hard to take your eyes off some of the houses sitting back from the fairways - Wow, it would be great to stay in one of these mansions!! Will definitely be back as this is one of the best courses in the Orlando area

Challenging course in a fantastic setting. Great facilities interms of practice & clubhouse after you finish your round. A must play if you are in town,, the course is recovering (as is every course in the area) from adverse Spring weather conditions but still looks good. Greens are fast but true and in good condition, we’ve played 10 courses since we’ve been here and the greens are amongst the 3 best.and that includes the Disney courses. Summer rates are priced well so take advantage, as it gets expensive in peak season unsurprisingly. We can’t wait to go back!

Due to the rain overnight it was cart path only and that is not good in that heat. the ball didn't run & it was wet under foot more so on the back nine, it was a little like that the last time we played it. The greens were good

The bar closes at 6 or there about so if you want a drink go to the tavern.
