Waldorf Astoria Golf Club
Excellent Course in Orlando
Extremely well maintained course. Their service is perfect. The faculties know what players want. Clubhouse foods are just the same as their hotel restaurant cook.

While we're young
Booked an early morning tee time expecting a 4 hour to 4 1/4 round of golf (some people have a life and can't spend close to 5 hours on the golf course#. The round progressively got longer throughout the morning. It was so bad that there were 3 groups of every hole by the time we got to the 12th tee box. We called the clubhouse to see what the hold up was. Apparently the "pace of play" is 4 1/2 hours and they could not tell the groups holding the course up that they needed to keep up with the group in front of them because they were on this ridiculous pace of play. We calculated the pace of play at 4 hours and 45 minutes on the 14th hole. If I wanted to play at that slow of pace I would have booked an afternoon tee time.
The staff at this facility is very friendly, but no amount of hospitality #wet towels, free tees, valet parking, etc.) can make up for an excessive pace of play for early morning tee times. Golf etiquette is that you keep up with the group in front of you or you let people through. We finished in 4 hours a 45 minutes so golf etiquette fell to the wayside and the excessive pace of play was exceeded anyway.

Currently playing. 3 groups on every hole. We are told that the "pace of play here is 4:30 hours". Just calculated our current round at 4:45 and getting slower. Won't be back. People make early tee times so they don't have to deal we excessive pace of play issues. If I wanted to play a round of golf that took nearly 5 hours I would tee off in the afternoon.

Played W.A. while in town for a conference. Staff was the most accomodating of any course I've played. Cart path only due to very sloppy conditions, otherwise all 5 stars.

Have played here three times and greens have been punched every time. But this is reflected in the price. Real top class facility everything is top class just a shame about greens. Staff are brilliant and really make you welcome.

A real gem
Played this course on Saturday. Was pre warned greens had been plugged and sanded but this did not affect an excellent round. Stunning course with challenging holes. You have to think your way round this course. Staff were the best we've encountered . This is a must play from now on.
