This is a 5 star course but I could only give it 4 because only 9 hole are currently open. The back 9 is currently under renovation. It will reopen next year at which time the front is going to be renovated. That being said, if you are looking to just play 9 I would highly recommend it.

With the back 9 under renovation it is possible that the front 9 would suffer. NOT AT ALL, course in fantastic condition, staff superb and anybody in Orlando wanting to play golf must go to the Waldorf Astoria.

I only wish we had played more rounds there.

Thank you to all the staff who made it memorable

My only gripe was not being able to hit a few more range balls after my practice round. Since I’m not a member of the club, the range attendant reiterated their policy that it was not allowed. Note there was no one on the range and the practice green was empty. I finished my practice round at 4:30pm. It didn’t leave me with a welcoming feeling.

"Best Maintained Course in Orlando"

I played a few rounds of golf in Orlando while in the area and I would say this was the best maintained course of all. Other courses had fairways hard a rock making it a challenge not to blade iron shots but these fairways were well cared for and the greens were also top notch. Very friendly staff; ample drinking water, and free valet parking! Certainly would recommend and will return when next in the area.

The course is great but has some construction overflowing on to the golf course affecting 3 holes if play (16, 17, and 18). The adjacent hotel aid doing some expansion that rerouted the three holes on the back none. The greeting from the parking lot, checkin, free range balls, ice water given by the starter, what else can you say but fantastic. Cart girl has refreshments and at the end when returning the cart you are greeted with a cool wet towel to refresh yourself with. Love this course.

We did a golf stay and play 5/13-5/15. Staff from the starters to the clubhouse to the bar are all fantastic! We really enjoyed our time playing at Waldorf. The only downside was the course conditions. The greens and fairways are not as nice as they were last year, a lot of discolored patches on the greens and all over the fairway. Caught us off guard since last year the course was absolutely beautiful. The surrounding area and nature preserve is still beautiful and the construction was not bad at all, they did a great job creating new holes. They mentioned they are doing a lot of renovations to the course over the next two years, can’t wait to see what’s it’s like after!
