A great course with really poor drainage. It was cart path only and for good reason. Standing water on all tees and fairways. Around the greens were the worst as many greens were elevated so water would run off. All in all not the worst round but with some drainage modifications could be better.
Great value for $45 on GolfNow. Great shape for the amount of rain in central Florida. Pro shop staff was not very accommodating; however cart guys were great! Greens were nice but slow; fairways were pristine. For the money I would play here over most courses in central Florida.
Great Golf outing; greens a little slow for my taste!
Everything was good except for Golfnow reservation it took for days of phone calls to get the reservations. Then get there and was going to be charged a different rate due to lack of communication with Golfnow. Always have your reservations on your phone or printed out the only thing that saved me. Staff worked it out and had the same error for my birthday Golf day made for Saturday he also fixed that at the course. So much for the VIP services, hope they fix this reservations problem it kind of ruins a happy day at the start. John C
New construction on the Disney roads caused some delays and wrong turns, so plan for more time than your GPS tells you. Once you get there, everything is top quality! The course is in fantastic shape and if you can get the GolfNow $39 price, it’s the best deal in town! There is plenty of water on the course, but ample landing areas. The carts have touch screen GPS so you can plan your shot to the landing zone. This course is playable for all skill levels with only a few forced carries. A good layout for the ladies too. We look forward to coming back!
Disney Experience on a Windy Day
Like everything at WDW, the Palm course is top-notch. Great layout, great condition. Greens are hard to read and hard to gauge. It's Florida, so lots of water and sand - not a good combo when the wind is 20-30 mph. GPS carts are (mostly) great, with interactive map to get most any distance - but the "nannying" (cart reduced to a crawl if it's somewhere they don't want to you be) was a bit irritating.
Minor quibbles: pro shop gave no info regarding range or balls. (Palm course is not near pro shop.) Not sure why Orlando and FLA residents get different rates, but GolfNow needs to find a way to filter them better. $59 isn't $115.
Everything A-OK... I have nothing bad to say .... we will be back...
