Played here this morning. From the time I arrived I was treated like royalty. Driving range was in great shape. Everyone I’ve talked to has said Orlando has been pounded with rain. I played Orange County National Monday and Waldorf today. Waldorf-Astoria’s conditions right now are awesome. Better then Orange County. Played the back tees shot even par. Back side my driving got a little away from me and I shot 5 over for a total of 77. I’m a 6-7 handicap. Loved the course layout. Greens were consistent. Fairways in spots were a little wet. You won’t get much roll in fairways in spots. . Overall I can’t wait to come back and play here. After the round the guys meet you with ice cold towel and washed your clubs.

The reason I didn’t give the course better ratings was because it was very wet and cart path only. I know it’s not the courses fault it was so wet. We’ve had a lot of rain. But cart path golf is not fun for anyone. I would love to play it again when the conditions are better.

Overall, the course was in great shape. Greens recovering nicely and the fairways were great aside from a few wet ones, but that’s not their fault. Pace of play was absolutely unacceptable though. 10 minute wait on tee boxes. 5 hour round. Not something you expect at a course like the Waldorf. Staff is awesome though, so I’m sure I’ll give it another try.

Disappointed with the back 9 layout overall. Not worth $75. They are doing some work however it is going to be a very long time before they are finished with whatever they are doing with the greens smack dab in the middle of the 2 of the fairways on the back? They need to grass over half the bunkers. Maybe more. Greens were aerated last week with full punch holes. Give those 3 weeks if you are going to play here. Wipe the sand off your putter before you take it back. No. 17 and 18 should have been closed...course does not handle water very well at all. Course hasn’t been sloped since it opened in 2009. Will only play here with a Hot Deal. Will watch reviews closely to see if there is large improvement.

The course looks great and overall is in good condition. The only reason It didn’t rank 5 stars are the air-rated greens. Putting was difficult with the sand and small holes on the green which made it difficult to get really true rolls.

The course in wet shocking condition. There is no drainage system. Also there is lack for communication between course staff. They did not inform about hole 17th cart path and maintenance person was showing attitude when we took cart on the fairway. We did not expect rude attitude from Hilton/Waldorf staff. We are local residents and played so many times there but seems like either management changed or they don’t care about local residents.

This a a beautiful course with challenging layout, unfortunately the greens were just punched and over-sanded as such the putting surface was not great. That said I have played here when the greens are 100% and its truly a great course. I will come back in late Sept when the greens have filled in and it should be perfect.

Well the front nine was closed so we had to play the back twice! The greens were so sandy we might as well been at the beach. When we finished with the round the bag boys didn't even help us with our clubs. I don't know what was going on but I would not play this course now.
