Challenging course, fun to play.

This course is in great shape. T-boxes fairways and greens are in great shape, the greens are slower that I would expect. You really need some guidance around this course, bad misses can cost you dearly. Know your distances as many greens don't have room for error, lots of water.

only one bad thing to say...

Waldorf at Disney is a truly exceptional place to play with friendly, attentive staff from the complimentary valet to the pro shop to the course staff including starters, rangers, etc. All of which is top notch in providing a wonderful experience. Upon arrival they already make you feel like royalty with the simplest of details like always referring to you by name once you share your tee time details with the valet. I arrived without a driver after snapping one the day before. Instead of renting one the pro shop offered me a demo complimentary for my round. And this is a valuable note, you need your driver for this course for it plays very long. Whatever tees your handicap suggests it is my recommendation to move up one if you want a good score. The course is in pristine condition and the greens are form and roll true with very few ball marks if any. Now for the only negative comment... I cannot afford to play here every day and have to restrict myself to twice a week instead of going hungry and skipping mortgage payments. Other than that this is an amazing course and worth every penny.

A nice round of golf

Pretty course which was very challenging due to its length; excellent staff. A few setbacks (restrooms on the course were all out of commission; construction work near first tee made it difficult to navigate to the tee; putting greens quite bumpy) but overall it was a pleasant day.

Always good

This is my favorite course in the Orlando area. The layout and conditions are always very good to great. It is very challenging track and plays long. They are currently adding in a pavilion of some sort so there is no putting green nor short game area to practice. This place is not cheap being connected to The Waldorf Astoria Hotel but the course is worth it and the food is good in the restaurant.

Nice course but......

Course design and condition was excellent.
Range was disappointing and there was no putting green.
Course was not very busy.
Some staff were great and others were not very good.
Value would be better if they reduced green fee while construction project is ongoing.

Best course in the Orlando area

First time playing this course every hole showed the Rees Jones style. Unfortunate it was cart path only, still rating this course a 10 from tee box to the greens. Looking forward to playing this course again in 2020. We come down from Myrtle Beach every year to play the best courses in the Orlando area. Thanks to all the staff at the Waldorf, from the grounds crew to the Pro shop, bag men, cart Girl. Job well done

Wardolf Astoria Is. Must.

Excellent course, from the time you enter the clubhouse to that last put on 18, was an amazing experience. We played whilst over seeding was in operation, so cart paths only, but didn’t both me one bit. Loved the course, and will most definitely play it again on my next visit to the sunshine state. Coming from Aberdeen Scotland, golf in shorts at this time of year is amazing.

Beautiful Course

I love playing this course. It is definitely one of the best courses in Orlando. Top notch from checking in till you return your cart. The course is immaculate from first tee to 18th green. 5 out of 5 stars all around.

Sad

The course has much potential and is nice to look at but when I purchased the tee times off of Golf now nowhere did it state that they were airaiding the greens . Also with the rain , it was cart path only which sucks if you really want to enjoy the course. I think that it was unfair of the course and of Golf now not to state this info at my time of purchase because it really put a damper on our first time there

Slow play

Very disappointed, staff great, course wet and only 9 holes in play, the standard of play was poor, they seem to take money off everyone so the pace of play was horrendous ( 4 groups on one hole) we gave up after 12 and just drove in. So sad was really looking forward to this course

Good conditions

Back nine was in good shape. Front nine was closed. Overseeding and cart path only. Would have been nice if that had been noted on the GolfNow site.

Style, support and service. The staff go out of their way to provide the best experience for you....complementary valet parking, club delivery, range balls, water and information. Most impressed with friendliness and welcome.
Course was wet due to recent rains, but only had the par 3's and #17 as cart path only. Some renos on course due to an eventual change in course layout.
Will play again definitely.
