The best Disney golf courses around the world
Disney World is the stuff dreams are made of for most children, but it can also provide a touch of magic for golfers, too. The Disney universe is home to several excellent courses.
Here, we take a look at what you can expect if you’re visiting Mickey and co this year.
Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course
Located across the water from the Disney Springs, Walt Disney World’s entertainment area, Lake Buena Vista Golf Course was the third to be designed by Jon Lee at the resort. This is a classic, country-club style course that winds around lakes and pine forests.
The opening hole is a very strong par-5 with water lining the fairway all the way down to the green, so you’ll want to make sure you warm up to avoid any Mickey Mouse scores.
Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course
Set beside Disney’s stunning Polynesian Village Resort, Magnolia Golf Course has been a much-loved Disney course for over 40 years. It was once a mainstay on the PGA Tour — Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have both won here — but these days it’s busy with holidaymakers looking for a break from character breakfasts and rollercoasters.
There are 1500 magnolia trees dotted along the course, which includes the famous Mickey Mouse bunker on hole 6.
Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course
A nine-hole course located next to Magnolia, Oak Trail is perfect for families looking to add a bit of gentle competition into their Disneyholidays. Expect plenty of wildlife and Disney fun on this par-36 course.
And if you really want to mix it up, why not try Footgolf? The contemporary family-favourite, which sees players kick footballs around a golf course in as few kicks as possible, can be played at Oak Trail.
Disney’s Palm Golf Course
The third course located in Disney’s clutch of courses at the Polynesian Village Resort, Palm is an 18-hole championship course that twists around lakes, tropical sands and, of course, plenty of palm trees.
The par-4 18th hole has been rated the fourth-toughest hole on the PGA Tour, so if you want to test yourself while enjoying the Disney magic, this is the place for you.
Golf Disneyland Paris
If Florida’s a little too far for you, why not look closer to home and check out the courses at Disneyland Paris? There are actually three courses at the French resort, which can be combined in a number of ways to create your own, unique 18-hole round.
With Disneyland Paris a little over three hours from London on the Eurostar, you could be teeing off with Mickey and the gang sooner than you think…
