Beauty

LBV is a great course, but you better bring your A game. It has relatively narrow fairways and practically every green is surrounded by bunkers. But the trip around the course is well worth the challenge.

Fun Round

course was a little wet due to rain a couple days before. Greens were quick but rolled true.bunkers were great. The course was a little beaten up from the rain and traffic but very playable. My complaint would be $100 for a round and you have to pay for range balls.Come on Disney ... really! Staff were great.overall a fun round.

Another pleasant day at LBV

As always, the course was great, and the weather was cooperative. Other than my errant shots, nothing to complain about. This is a great golfing experience.

Perfect Day For Golf

The greens were extremely fast!! The fairways okay shape! The sand traps were redone and excellent! The course is wide open and not as difficult as Magnolia. Begingers suggest playing LBV. Par 3 have to carry over the water. Over all great experience at Disney.

Not as good as last time

Played 4 years ago and it was mint. The course was OK for condition but was rough in places. Several greens had multiple patches which were been worked on. The greens had weeds in places and recovering after aerating. Shame for a Disney Course.

This is a great course

This was the first time playing this course. I have payed both Disney's Magnolia and Palm course. The Lake Buena Vista course was just as challenging as those course if not more because of the narrow and tree lined fairways. Love that it goes through saratoga, old key west and the tree house villas. Even thought the course was wet from all of the rain lately, the condition of the course was in great shape. Greens were far better than the greens on Magnolia and Palm, bunkers had just been redone and were in excellent shape.

Disney says it all

I booked a round at Disney and, being a local, I expected crowds and waiting in line. There was none of that here. The staff was friendly and courteous. The tee times were spaced so that you did not feel rushed (conveyor belt style typical in central Florida) or pushed. The course was very well groomed and the off-course amenities were excellent as well. Disney, need I say more? We will definitely be back!

Disney Magic

Course was in great shape, didn’t really expect anything else from a Disney point of view. Staff were really friendly and the course was a great test with great condition. Always great to believe in the magic for the children but Disney also takes care of the Big kids that visit the golf ccourse also.
