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.

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!!!
