Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course, conceived by Joe Lee, is an 18-hole classic, country-club style course that has hosted the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, and USGA events.

Due to the current closure of Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, players must have a confirmed tee time reservation before entering the property.

If you are looking for a different spin on the game, you can also take on its 9-Hole FootGolf course that is certified by the American FootGolf League (AFGL), the governing body for the sport of FootGolf in the United States.

FootGolf combines the game of soccer with shortened length golf holes, where the fewest kicks wins the hole.

When you are ready to take your swing, players will notice that significant measures to help ensure the well-being of all who visit and work at Walt Disney World Golf have been implemented.

Most notably, the new “Park and Play” procedure allows players to make an online tee time reservation and pre-pay online. Upon arrival, each player will have a designated sanitized golf cart waiting to take them to the first tee.

Other measures to be aware of include: 

  • Tee time intervals have been adjusted to help aid in social distancing.
  • Club drop off is not being offered, but the staff will be available if special assistance is required.
  • Rentals of clubs and shoes are not available.
  • Tees, pencils, and scorecards can be requested.
  • The courses no longer have bunker rakes, water coolers, and ball washers.
  • Flagsticks should not be removed, and raised cups are in use on the greens to make ball retrieval easier.
  • The Pro Shop is open with special social distancing and sanitizing procedures.
  • On course food and beverage carts are not in use, however, Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Deli (Magnolia, Palm, and Oak Trail) and Chip ‘n’ Dale’s Cafe (Lake Buena Vista) are available during play without seating for guests.
  • All transactions must be completed with chip only credit cards.
  • All facilities have hand sanitizers.
