Celebration Golf Club
slow play and course conditions
We should have been notified that the course was cart path only. Plus young walkers on the course playing like it was a pro am. 125pm tee time we only got in 14 holes.

There were about ten foursomes of high school club players that went out about an hour before us and the pace of play was terrible by the ninth hole. Multiple people were complaining all around the back nine, and there wasn't a marshal in sight!

The course looks so well manicured from the "outside", and the greeting golf valet and practice facilities do not disappoint, but, too many bunkers were incorrectly raked or worse still not raked at all, the greens are fast and have some very subtle breaks, but again the general maintenance was weak, because of how other golfers had treated them.
the course was over seeded recently and the long grass on the fairways killed any roll, but my biggest gripe was the 5,30 mins it took the play 18 holes there were two 4 balls in front of us, none of which seemed able to play at a reasonable pace.
I would love to play again, as the layout is very challenging and I believe the day I played was not representative of the "real course" !

really had a great day of golf!! Played 36 holes,ate lunch did whole day. Everyone was so helpful and personable. Course was wet due to water cycle so cart path only made it a long round but I didn't mind due to beauty of place. Plenty of tough holes but birdies are available. I can't wait to return!! Enjoy this orlando attraction

This course is well laid out
Enjoyed the course. It was challenging in length from the gold tees for an 18 handicap. Course was in good shape but was being over seeded and therefore carts were required to stay on cart paths. This necessitated many long walks to get to your ball and required the carrying of multiple clubs because you often did not know what club you needed until after making the long walk. I expect the course will be beautiful in a couple of weeks after the seed takes effect.

BOGGY SOGGY AND SEEDED EVERYWHERE!
Unfortunately, when we booked they didn't advise that carts were to be kept to cart path at all times. The tee times were very close together resulting in waiting on every shot. The course was over-watered and my feet were under water on the tee. Why charge people to not enjoy what should be a great experience? Celebration is a lovely venue but our 4 ball definitely didn't enjoy ourselves.

Greens were very good
This is the second time I have played this course that it was cart path only. I have been in the area for 8 days and it never rained but some of the fairways were soaked. I was told that they had seeded the fairways and greens and watered them until they were soaked. This makes no sense to me. Greens were fine and in good condition. Staff was excellent. Played a number of courses earlier in the week and fairways were dry.

Overseeded and cart path only made for a 5 hour and 10 minute round. No marshall until 17th hole and he didn't seem too concerned about pace. Interesting layout and generally nice course but bad timing. Just wanted to be done by the time we finally fiished. Might have been better if they had spread the tee times out but they were really cramming and squeezing folks in. No drink carts and a poorly staffed snack bar madeit tough to even get a drink at the turn.
