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.

Disney Golf

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

Arrive early

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.

Great course but slow

Course conditions were unbelievable. Greens are super hard to read but makes it fun for the more advanced golfers. Bunkers and water everywhere but with a great layout you have to bring your best golf. Played behind a foursome for the first nine that was super slow and didn’t care that we were waiting on every shot. Passed them on 10 and never saw them again. Besides that no complaints can’t wait to play again.

Disney Palm course

The course was great. Unfortunately there was a fog delay that back up all tee times about 1 hour. That took us to the afternoon when the temperature got hotter. Overall though a great course but being the first time we played here it was challenging not knowing where to lay up or position an approach shot.

Good Course, but not special

The course layout was good, the staff was nice, the course wasn't in as good a shape as I anticipated. There was nothing wrong with the course, but with so many options in the area, I just expected more. For the price, some of the other courses in the area just seem better.

I expected a little more being a Disney Property. Charging extra for range balls was disappointing. Some of the rough was stressed. Nothing really wrong with the course, I was just expecting more.
