I really enjoyed playing Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course. The course was in excellent condition and and the service was great. One of my playing partners got a hole-in-one on the second hole which was very exciting to see! The layout is good and I believe most golfers would be able to have a good day on this course. Relying on Google Maps, I drove to the wrong parking area and spent about ten additional minutes getting to the course. Make sure you head for the resort property to avoid this delay.

Rude staff from desk to starter. Got misleading information and no one wanted to make it right. Rude responses. Worst staff start to finish. Beat up resort course. Over priced for conditions and rube staff. Miserable round , quit after 9 holes.

Avoid !!!!!!

Put a threeball in at the same time as ourselves. Really slow and we ran out of light. I didn’t realise that there were no rules for clothing as the guys in front had sliders on and kept hitting balls in the water deliberately. No on course Marshall. Spoilt our day

Course is challenging but very playable. It was wet due to recent rains, but mostly in good shape. Twilight should start earlier since it’s dark at 5:30 this time of year.

Saludos, mi hora de saluda fue a las 2:15, no pudimos terminar el juego porque los del frente eran demasiado lentos y nos atrasaron el. No vimos un ranger para que hablara con ellos. Todo lo demás fue bueno. Este campo es muy acogedor..

We had a great Sunday morning playing at Buena vista. The course was beautiful, challenging and enjoyable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The greens were in great shape. We were fortunate to get partnered with two nice guys. We’d definitely come back.
