Disney

Very nice layout. Very playable from multiple sets of tees. We were in the first group and played in 3 hours 30 minutes. Greens were in very good shape. Price was comparable to other courses in the Disney area. Worth the trip.

Great course

Course was great staff was great. Only thing that sucked for me and that is no fault of anyone than Mother Nature is that it was cart path only. Keep that in mind Incase it rains the day before your tee time. Other than that it’s great.

Excellent but tough

Palm is an excellent layout but pretty tough with lots of water hazards in play. You will need to bring your A game to score well. Greens are in great shape and putted fast and true. Favourite hole was the risk/reward par 4 13th where you have to choose between safely finding the fairway and trying to get as close to the green as possible with going in the water by taking on too much of the dog-leg.

Like many things, Disney does golf well!

Course was in very good shape. Nice layout and very friendly staff.

The course is a good test for players of all levels, but has generous landing areas and multiple tees to choose from.

The rates are a little stiff for non-residents (another thing that is consistently true of Disney!), but all in all it was an enjoyable experience.

Wonderful Track

As an Orlando area resident, I have played the Palm several times in the last couple of years and have always been impressed with the condition of the course. This time was no exception but for the fact the greens were the slowest I can remember. I can only assume the AP Management Group has determined that slower greens will expedite play, especially for higher handicap players. I’m not sure I agree with this school of thought as it has been my experience slow play is not so much the result of poor putters as it is golfers playing from a longer set of tees than their skill level, too many practice swings, not playing ready golf, and stubbornly insisting on holing out regardless of the number of strokes taken. Despite being slow, I must say the greens were lush and smooth and I hope to play them again when they are a faster speed. The fairways were a bit thin in places but were, overall, in very good shape as were the tees. Given the large number of players on the course, I thought the pace of play was pretty good and we finished in about 4:40. Everyone from the pro shop staff to the cart person were courteous and helpful. All in all, the Palm was a very enjoyable golf experience I hope to repeat in the near future.

Ruined by ranger

Our foursome started at 8:24 with a twosome in front of us. After 7 holes a ranger told us we were out of position. We were two holes in front of the group behind us so we did not change our pace of play. We finished the front nine in under two hours. We kept the same pace on the back nine and finished the round in under four hours. We never saw the group behind us until we were on the 18th green and they were just teeing off on 18.

SLOW GREENS

Nice layout as would be expected from Disney. Was extremely disappointed with the greens, they were running at a 7 tops, and this may be generous? I am sure they could easily be better greens obviously we just hit a bad day.

Nice course. Not perfect.

Course was wet from heavy rain so it was cart path only. They had just aerated so greens were bumpy but still playable. My only complaint is the cart girl has to hand enter credit card info for on the course purchases. Being there isn’t a shop at the turn, maybe they should invest in isquare or something similar to speed up the process.

Sloppy conditions

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.

Disney Palms

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.
