Walt Disney World has four beautiful golf courses. I had the pleasure to play three of them on my most recent vacation.
Palm was a long, challenging course with great views and it is perfectly maintained. Palm is great for experienced golfers. It has awesome views of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and The Contemporary Resort.
Oak Trail is a short 9 hole course. They have normal tee lengths, women's tees, AND kids tees; which is rare. Walking only here, but you can rent a pull cart for $7. It weaves in and out of the Magnolia course. If you play on Tuesdays or Saturdays expect to see foot golfers out there too. Oak Trail is ideal for a family golf experience with younger children or elderly golfers.
Lake Buena Vista is an 18 hole course over at Disney's Saratoga Springs and Old Key West Resorts. It has awesome views of Disney Springs to start. There are tons of balconies from Old Key West and the Treehouse Villas around the course looking down at you playing. Having the Old Key West buildings makes the course seem even more colorful and light.
All the courses have their own driving ranges and a complementary bucket of balls is included at each course. Cart girls were going around on Palm but none on Lake Buena Vista. I HIGHLY recommend Disney Palm for competitive golfers.
