Very disappointed

We booked a foursome a month ago

Paid top dollar $60.00 each

The course was in terrible shape tee to green

When we asked one of the staff what’s happened to the course as we’ve played there every year for the last twenty years

He said we’re letting it go because we’re going to renovate the whole Course-soon

It would have been nice if they told us that when we booked or adjusted the $

We have been coming to Orlando for many years and despite playing other courses we always make sure we have at least two games at Celebration.

Course layout and condition is excellent.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

The course was good but supervision on the course was poor.We played behind a 4 ball (we were a 2 ball) who were very slow we got to the 6th and a course manager told us to speak to the 4 ball in front to see if they would let us through as they were very slow!!!I don’t think it’s up to us surely it’s up him to tell them!!

Apart from being very slow enjoyed the course however slow play needs looking at!!

Celebration was once a very good golf course. Even though it was among the most unwelcoming courses in Florida, it made up for it with a unique layout and fast greens. Today, the greens remain quick but the rest of the course is worn out. Tee boxes have no grass; the pro shop inventory is 1/3 what it once was; and the course, overall, just needs a lot of work to restore its overall appeal.

We had an enjoyable round playing this course. The staff was very friendly from check in to finally leaving the course. We were the 2nd or 3rd group out and played our round in just over 3 hours.

This is one of the better courses in central FL but the greens and fairways have been better in the past. Maybe lack of rain is playing a part but it has been better.

This was the first time my wife and played this course. We both loved the layout, conditions, scenery and all the around atmosphere. The greens were very fast and there was never a straight putt. Cannot wait to play it again. We also had an excellent twilight rate which is the reason for the high “Value for Money” rating. The only downside was the tee areas are fairly small and really need some TLC. All course personnel were very nice and friendly.

Been playing here for 20 years. Surprised at some poor conditions. Many tee boxes have barely any grass. Greens were slower than usual. Fairways fine in most spots but had 4 lies that were mostly dirt. Second cut just off fairway was often hard pan or browned out. Most lies just off green were poor quality. Sand ok. No beverage cart. Staff and 19th hole awesome as always. I’d rate 3.5 stars if I could.
