beautiful Day

Your experience at Disney is always top notch, even while in covd precautions. The course was in good shape , however the greens needed to be rolled. The practice green was nice but the greens on the course were slow and bumpy..Also got a great deal to play LBV the next day. Will play again on a return visit

Pace of play sucks

Disney likes to stack their tee sheet. They send groups off of 1 and 10 so by the time you finish 9 you’re waiting on 3 groups once you get to 10, so you wait 15 min between shots, It’s absolutely miserable. You would think a powerhouse like Disney would get it together.

Thank you for your feedback on your recent round at Walt Disney World® Golf. We apologize for the fact that your were displeased with pace of play at Disney's Palm golf course. This past Saturday and Sunday afternoon we hosted a 2-day event, which required us to run our leisure guests in a double tee format. We do not put any more golfers upon our golf course than we normally would in this situation, however it sounds as though your transition to your back nine didn't go as smooth as it should have, and for that we apologize.
We hope that you will play our wonderful courses again in time to come, so we can exceed your expectations upon your next visit to Orlando.
If you would like to discuss your experience further with our management level staff, please email us at disneygolfreservations@palmergolf.com
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us!

Not worth the drive

Course should not have been open. Too wet, greens bumpy, mud and water everywhere. Drove over 1 hr. for this? Should have stayed and played local course in Brevard. Disney should be ashamed!!

Too wet for golf!

I have played golf in Florida for over forty years...this was by far the wettest most unplayable golf course I have ever played. I lost two sleeves of balls in the fairway! Fairways were too wet and rough was even worse! On top of that the greens were just punched and sanded. Disney should not have opened the course for play. The staff was Disney nice nothing special. Luckily the rate was cut in half but management should have closed the course until it drys out. Expected better from Disney

Upsetting

First, the driving range and putting green next to the first tee was blacked off for the privileged, kneeling NBA players, and the tee time ahead of us was late and the started didn’t allow us to go. However the course in great shape would play it again.

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.
