    Disney’s Osprey Ridge Course 

    Rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest

    Tom Fazio, who in 1989 was voted "Golf Course News" “Architect of the Year,” has designed a course that is totally unique to this area. This links-style course is designed by mounds and ridges framing the large greens and rolling fairways. The course plays 6,680 yards from the middle tees and winds its way through a tropical wilderness.

    Disney’s Eagle Pines Course

    Rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest

    With eight of his courses ranked in the top 50 in the world by "Golf Magazine", Pete Dye specializes in designing strokes of genius. Playing 6,309 yards from the middle tees, this course features dish-shaped fairways that create a low, sweeping look and keep play at the same level as the surrounding trees. But beware, those beautiful pines can easily become tenacious foes!

    Disney’s Oak Trail

    The 9-hole, par-36 walking course features small, undulating greens and elevated tees. Playing to 2,913 yards from the middle tees and surrounded by thick vegetation and wildlife, it’s perfect for those who enjoy walking a course and soaking up the scenery. Shots shouldn’t be approached too casually - Disney’s Oak Trail greens have been labeled some of the most challenging at the Walt Disney World® Resort.

    Disney's Magnolia Course

    Rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest

    More than 1,500 magnolia trees dot this course designed for big hitters. As the setting for the final round of the National Car Rental® Golf Classic at Walt Disney World® Resort, a PGA TOUR® event, this beautifully manicured course has all the earmarks of a golfer’s paradise: elevated tees and greens, rolling terrain, water on 10 of the 18 holes, and 6,642 yards from the middle tees! The par-3 sixth hole even pays tribute to Mickey Mouse with a bunker shaped to form his silhouette.

    Disney’s Palm Course

    Rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest

    The beauty of the Florida woodlands makes the Palm not only a pleasure to play, but also one of Disney’s toughest. Rated by "Golf Digest" as one of “America’s 75 Best Resort Courses,” this Joe Lee course plays a modest 6,461 yards from the middle tees and boasts more than its share of water and sand. On the 18th, golfers will be challenged by a hole that’s been rated the fourth toughest on the PGA TOUR®.


    Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Course

    Styled in a classic country club setting, the Lake Buena Vista course plays 6,268 yards from the middle tees. This challenging course, which meanders through dense pine forests, is characterized by small, well-bunkered greens that demand accurate shot-making. It all adds up to a golf experience that truly reflects the philosophy of the course’s designer, Joe Lee.
