Surreal Disney

Anytime you play a Disney course you arrive anticipating three things:
1. Crowded conditions - it was
2. Really great course conditions - yup it was
3. Friendly staff - yes, as always.

In addition there is the true Disney atmosphere. Monorails running, train whistles, screams of joy on thrill rides and lots of people enjoying a Central Florida vacation.

The parking lots were empty. The monorails parked. The trains silent. The rides closed.

For the first time ever I enjoyed Disney's Palm in quiet. The peace that simply isn't ever possible at Disney because of the enormous popularity and crowds.

They had just aerated and things were a little rough. But it was still a Disney experience. Surreal. But Disney.

I have played every Disney course several times. The Palm is just an amazing track and I highly recommend it.

Fantastic course all the way around

You can’t beat the quality for the price. Fantastic fairways, thick roughs, greens were slow but pure. If you have the chance to play here you absolutely should.

Great course for the money

Fun, challenging, but fair. Love the layout but made sure move up a tee box. It’s plays longer than it reads. Very friendly staff as one would expect from Disney. Can’t wait to go back.

Nice, straight forward layout.

The course conditions were good. Greens looked good and rolled true but were on the slow side. Nice layout that goes through the Forest. Only negative to that was the lack of air movement as it was stagnant and hot, but that’s not a knock on the course. Had a great time playing the course!

Loved it!

Very good experience at the Palm Course. I have played all Disney courses as well as Tranquillo numerous times. The Palm Course has the best character. Greens were good but not great. Fairways were good but not great. This was the second time in a week that I played Palm. I went back because of the first round there....spectacular! I was not disappointed with the second round either. To everyone that reads the reviews to decide where to play, go play any of the Disney Course! They are all a great value and wonderful tracks.

Best Bang for the Buck... It's Disney Magic

Played Palms Tuesday the 12th. Fantastic golf experience. Course was in excellent condition. Fairways were running fast and smooth. They were so smooth, they were better than other Orlando courses greens. Rough was maybe 2 to 3 inches. Greens were in impeccable shape, running true, smooth, with about a 9 or 10 on a stimpmeter. The staff, as always, were very friendly and accommodating. At this time of year with very little rain and the COVID-19 thing going on, I can't say enough about how great this course is. Playing Palms again Friday, I enjoyed it that much. Don't hesitate, as I said in the title, Disney Magic!!!

Great afternoon on this course

While not the most scenic golf course recently played, the Palm course was a lovely place to spend the afternoon golfing. It was challenging but not too difficult. Greens were in great condition and played well.

Great Escape

Couldn't pass up the opportunity to play given the lack of things to do. I was welcomed by the staff (while maintaining social distancing guidelines) and was given a cart that was wiped down and ready. Starter checked us in and we were on our way. Course is still in great shape. Greens were true (it was off and on rain most of the round) and fairways were in good shape given the lack of rain. Perfect getaway for crazy times. Had no one in front of or behind us.
