Fixed some things; need to improve rough and tees

VERY friendly staff. Great layout. Fixed the timing issue at the snack bar. Pace of play was great. Rough and tees need a lot of attention. And they need to replace practice tees mats.

Disney Magic

Always great staff and conditions. Only issue is no place on property to really sit down for and after round meal, beside the snack stand.

One of the most improved courses

I am local player and Orlando has over 90 public courses that you can choose. I always found Disney courses overpriced and not in good shape, so I tended to avoid them. However, since Arnold Palmer Golf Management assumed the courses, I noticed a huge, substantial overall improvement.. Played Waldorf Astoria and Magnolia in the same weekend and conditions were very similar. The difference is the price: $170 for Waldorf and $50 for Magnolia. The staff is Disney standard! Period. Today, for instance, we arrived 5 minutes later than our tee-time. My fault that did not foreseen the traffic. The staff did everything accommodate me and re-arrange the schedule. We played in 3:45 hours. Disney's courses returned to be in my list of frequent places to play. My only comment to future reference is that such clubhouse deserved an on-site restaurant overlooking the practice green and the former PGA Tour winner banners. Nothing big but something more post-round inviting than the current snack bar at the turn.

Another great day at WDW Golf

Played early Sunday morning. Was paired with two ladies from Japan. They could not speak any English, but we were able to converse through the smart phone translator. They played very well. The course was in fantastic shape. Had to avoid 25-30 turkeys a couple of times. Greens were in great shape. A lot of bunkers guarding the greens, but still very manageable. Free courtesy taxi from the resort and back was terrific. Have been playing Disney golf on all my trips down these days. LBV may be just a slight shade better, but Magnolia was a very close second.

disappoiting

a mickey mouse cart at entrance and a mickey mouse designed sand trap is too little for a Disney GC. the semi rough is more like surging for Easter eggs than good for a golfcourse., hiding balls totally.

The design is just standard nothing really special.

avoid to drive the cart too close to the greens as you can only drive your cart backwards, if possible.

I was ending up at the parking area on 18th hole and had to leave it there and walk back to clubhouse. the GPS should be re-programmed to avoid this. I know that this is possible from my own course.

Lovely course but wanted more Disney themed

As a child at heart I was hoping to have more Disney themes on the course. Having said that, the course is beautiful and in fantastic condition. Only minus was not many drink stations or facilities to buy snacks along the way. Would definitely play again.

Magnolia not so magnificent

Not a very special golfcourse. Greens were in not so good condition. Speed of play was terrible, flight in front of us even had music playing from their carts. This is not the finest golf you can get, certainly not for 75 dollar. First nine holes no catering on the course. So, i don't recommend this course, too commercial and way to little value for money.

Wet

This is a beautiful course, and the staff could not have been nicer. I gave a poor rating for course conditions because the fairways where so soggy we had cart path only on the whole course. We where offered a rain check if the course was too wet after two holes of play, which was very nice.

Unfortunately, there has been so much rain that cart path only was the rule of the day. To the credit of the staff, they permitted you two play two holes and decide if you wanted to continue on, or go back for a full refund. We continued on. Disney courses and staff are always top notch. Never pass on an opportunity to play one.

Good but not Great

Enjoyed our game at Magnolia where everything is in good shape. Nice greens but not quite as good as Hawks Landing where we played a couple of days previously. I get the feeling they try to get too many folks out on the course which spoils the pace of play. Staff didn't appear to be as friendly in general may be because it is so busy but I'm thinking Grumpy rather than Happy. Food after the game not as good as regular clubhouses as Disney serves up quick service style

I would not rule out playing again but equally good courses can be found that are less busy and more happy to have you visit.
