Are you an avid golfer? Do you only play a couple times a year? Ever thought about giving it a swing? Then Disney is the place for you! Did you know that there are more than just theme parks and water parks on property? There are 4 golf courses to choose from. The Magnolia, Palm, Lake Buena Vista and Oak Trail (a par 36 walking only course).
If you are an early riser, Disney Golf offers a package called the Sunrise 9. Between 7:00 – 8:30 a.m. daily you can tee off at Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course or choose from the back nine at either Disney’s Lake Buena Vista or Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course. $35.00 plus tax gets you 9 holes, a breakfast sandwich and a drink before and after your round. Don’t worry if you don’t have clubs, they also offer rentals.
My husband and daughter selected Oak Trail for the Sunrise 9. We arrived around 7:00 for our tee time. We were welcomed at the Club House by the friendly Pro Shop Cast Members, checked in, received our selection of breakfast sandwiches and drinks and headed for the first tee. We were the first group out for the morning. The course is short but challenging and it is set up for younger players unlike the others. 150 yard Junior Tees are set up on each hole. *Oak Trail is the only course on property with this option.
While I didn’t play, I was keeping busy keeping score not only of the shots but of the wildlife. On the back of the scorecard is a list of local inhabitants of the course. I checked off deer, squirrel, rabbit, heron, hawk and turkey. It’s a great morning walk with family even if you are not a player. You are even close enough to the Magic Kingdom to hear the new morning show, Let the Magic Begin.
Whether it be a family trip or a guys or even girls trip, Disney has several golf options for everyone! You can find them online at www.golfwdw.com or call for a tee time 407-WDW-GOLF (939-4659). Your Wishes Travel agent would be happy to help you with these bookings also.
* Disney Golf has recently added the Sunset 9 for those who have a little free time in the evenings. Sunset 9 is $29.00 plus tax and includes a hot dog and a drink. Times range from 3:00pm-5:30pm
