Disney's Magnolia Golf Course is the longest of all the Walt Disney World® Resort golf courses. Lower-handicap golfers commonly favor it over the three other 18-hole courses at Disney for its championship pedigree. It's been a mainstay on the PGA Tour since it opened.

Joe Lee's design is classic, with very wide fairways, but 11 of the 18 holes have water, and there are 97 bunkers scattered around the scenic landscape and greens. The golf course gets its name from the more than 1,500 fragrant Magnolias. Elevated tees, spacious greens and tranquil water hazards make it a natural setting.

The challenging signature hole, the par-3 sixth with the Mickey Mouse-shaped bunker in front of the green, is nearly 200 yards from an elevated tee, over water to a shallow, elevated green. In all, Disney's Magnolia course measures 7,516 yards from the classic tees, with a course rating of 76.0 and a slope rating of 141.

    Golfing at a Disney, I expected a highly manicured golf course with fast greens. I received neither. My partner and I were very disappointed after traveling 90 minutes to get there. I understand its the rainy season and that can present challenges to the grounds crew, but it is not an excuse for such poor conditions. It reminded me of a municipal course. The greens were slow and somewhat scarred from unrepaired ball marks. The tee boxes were so so and the fairways even worse with plenty of dead grass. However, the staff was very friendly and courteous meeting my expectations. But, I came to play a beautiful golf course. I will not return and will discourage others from playing there as well.

    Played the course at Easter 2013 and it was in excellent condition and the staff were helpful and friendly. All in all an unforgettable experience.

    We planned our trip around playing here on Monday. we got the very first tee time after the PGA Tournament. We thought we were so lucky to get a virgin PGA course. After the third hole we had to wait for the fairway sprinkler to go off, then the same on the next hole, and the next hole, etc. etc. The groundskeeper systematically watered very fairway right in front of us. It hadn't rained in Orlando in days, but we played in the slop. I spoke with the guy in the pro shop. He was less than concerned. I contacted Disney, haven't heard back from them.

    I played Magnolia on Monday 1/16, the greens are in magnificent shape and the fairways were also in great shape, since it was winter golf for me, it was a bit of a struggle with all the water well protected greens, but I loved it.
