Experience the Magic of Walt Disney World® Golf!
The championship golf courses at the Walt Disney World® Resort have garnered praise and prestigious awards for their superlative design, impeccable service, world-class amenities and overall playability throughout the years. When you book a tee time at any of their four courses, you’ll experience the characteristic beauty and benefits that continue to rake in the accolades for Disney Golf.
There are Four Golf Courses at the Walt Disney World Resort. Golf and FootGolf operations remain available on their regular schedule. DisneyGolf continues to closely monitor recommendations by health officials and have implemented measures to help ensure the well-being of all who visit and work at Walt Disney World® Golf.
Disney’s Palm Golf Course
During Summer 2013 Disney’s Palm Golf Course was completely redesigned by Arnold Palmer Design Company. The extensive work included building entirely new green complexes, newly shaped tees, and a completely new bunker design that has modernized this historic golf course. The changes are significant and we’re very excited about the renovations of this great golf course.
This 18-hole championship course features shimmering lakes, tropical sands, palm trees and sloping greens. Disney’s Palm Golf Course is rated 4 stars by Golf Digest and includes 9 holes with water hazards and 59 bunkers—providing plenty of challenges for novices and seasoned pros alike.
Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course
Named for its majestic magnolia trees, this course features elevated tees, spacious greens and challenging water hazards. Wide fairways invite you to hit the ball and hit it long, but beware—11 of the 18 holes boast water hazards and 97 bunkers dot the landscape. All bunkers were renovated in Summer 2015, when extensive tree work and cart path repairs were also undertaken, resulting in the best golf course conditioning our guests have enjoyed in recent years
Certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary and rated 4 stars by Golf Digest, Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course represents a paradise for serious golfers, as well as a thrilling challenge for players at all levels.
Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course
Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course has hosted the PGA Tour, the LPGA Tour and USGA events.
Certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary and rated an impressive 4 stars by Golf Digest, the 18-hole course was conceived by Joe Lee and most notably features elevated bunkered greens that put a premium on accurate approach shots. Test your skills and fortitude at the demanding 7th hole with its challenging island green.
Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course is a beautiful 9-hole course with rolling greens and exciting challenges. Certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course lets you test your skills with holes ranging from 132 to 517 yards from the white tees; holes 5, 6 and 7 are routed around a deep canal and a picturesque pond. Operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management and featuring junior tees for younger golfers, this walking course is fun for the whole family.
Disney does not allow golf carts on the course. Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course is walking only. Pull carts can be rented, and are available for $7+tax per person per round, based on availability.
For the very first time, Walt Disney World® Golf operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management is proud to offer the game of FootGolf to our guests at Disney’s Oak Trail golf course. The 9-Hole FootGolf course is Certified by the American FootGolf League (AFGL), the governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States. Tee times can be booked to play 9 holes of FootGolf either in front of or behind those playing 9 holes of traditional golf. When played in groups of four, 9 holes of FootGolf should take approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, much like that of 9 holes of traditional golf.
Disney’s Oak Trail FootGolf course measures in at 1,240 yards over a par for the course of 35 with a challenging selection of par 3’s, 4’s and 5’s. Traditional golf is played to the Blue pin flags at Disney’s Oak Trail course while FootGolf is identified by its official color of Orange. There are no forced carries over any waterways on any of the 9 holes, therefore, young or old, it is fun for the whole family.
If you are looking to get outside and hit the links, Walt Disney World Golf has come up with new ways to make the check-in process easier.
With health and safety top of mind, Disney Golf, which is operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, recently launched its Park & Play Program, which responsibly speeds up the check-in process before guests even start their round. Here’s how it works: Just book a tee time online and pay for it using a credit card. Then when you show up at any Disney golf course, in most cases their pre-positioned sanitized golf cart will be waiting for them to take it straight to the first tee.
For golfers that’s magic!
Even if you have to go inside the clubhouse to check in or pick up some cool Disney golf merchandise, all of the courses have gone to contactless payments (e.g. credit/debit cards, Apple Pay, etc) as cash is no longer accepted.
It’s just the latest effort by Disney Golf to enhance the golfing experience while operating responsibly at Walt Disney World Resort. As a remimnder, all of the other health and safety provisions at all of the Disney courses include:
- Face coverings are required in the clubhouse, restrooms and food & beverage locations.
- Bunker rakes, sand bottles and ball washers have been removed from the courses.
- Flag sticks can be left in the hole during putting.
- Single cart riding is available upon request.
- Social distancing guidelines for golfers and employees.
- Enhanced sanitization throughout the golf course and clubhouse.
