Frankly, the main reason one plays here is because your kids are engaged at the facility and you need a diversion to do something. That's the extent of the design.

There are the usual Florida inclusions where water is used to abundance at times and a few of the holes can be a bit narrow given the general clientele playing.

The greater Orlando area has added a few other key golf choices over the last 25 years and the Disney product overall serves an immediate need to play some sort of golf when the kids are in tow. If you keep your expectations in check the time there will be productive but don't go thinking compelling architecture is center stage.

In a similar style to Disney’s Palm course, this experience should give you golf with a smile on your face as it is very easy to get drawn into the Disney spirit. I would go as far to say that any ranking order of the Disney courses (around the 70-90 position in the Florida numbers) feels ok and it will probably come down to personal experience as to which way you go. The opening hole on Lake Buena Vista is very strong, a par-5 with water all the way down the left which eats into the fairway and then again at the green – failure to warm-up properly will definitely have an effect on your score on this hole. The stretch from the 3rd tee to the 7th green are in around many of the onsite properties and pools, a little encroaching some may say but there are some decent holes. Short par-4’s at the 4th and the 6th and the island green par-3 7th being my picks. The back nine closes with two ‘big’ holes – both tree lined, bunkered either side and away from the houses. The back nine continues to give a number of tree-lined holes and less where the worry is disturbing anyone sitting poolside! overall course lovers will prefer these holes I think. A tough dog legging par-4 ends the round and overall there are enough good holes on the course to say that this is not Mickey Mouse golf…
