Waldorf Astoria Golf Club
The first impressions on arrival were great, nice welcome and excellent practice facilities. The GPS on the buggy was brilliant.
The course was in great condition but wasn't anything special. A lot of the holes seemed the same.
We had been paired up with another person, which was fine, and set off at a reasonable pace but then ended up behind a six ball! We waited ages behind them. A marshall came and said they were a family wanting to play together but they would let us through! No they didn't! A two ball behind us ended up walking in and so did our playing partner.
We ended up asking to be let through and the group did let us although they weren't pleased!
This is supposed to be a prestigious course so we couldn't believe what had happened. We had got a good deal from golf now but had still paid more than we had at any other course we played in orlando.
We complained after we had finished and Chris in the pro shop did say it shouldn't have happened and he had not been aware of it. He was going to have a word with the Marshall. He did give us a rain ticket as we had eventually walked in because of the weather.
Not a good experience

One of the best courses in the greater Orlando area!
The course is meticulously maintained and each hole has fabulous visuals. Staff goes out of their way to ensure a great experience. A must play anytime you're in Orlando.

Beautiful scenic course in excellent condition as you would expect from a Waldorf!
Excellent course which was even more challenging on an atypical windy and cold day. Tremendous value for what I paid on Golfnow.com.

Fantastic Customer service
They had just overseeded for the winter so greens and fairways a little shaggy but great place, people, and layout. IN a few weeks it will be perfect.

Waldorf Astoria provided the BEST resort experience I'e ever had.
Great conditions....great value, and the friendliest resort staff I've ever encountered. 3 hour round and they let me play an extra 9 for free. Next time I'm in Orlando....I'll never play anywhere else.
Thank you Waldof Astoria. Great track.

We book via golf now for the last 4 years and have never been desapointed.
When we arrived to the course there was nobody there.
We went to the proshop and were advise that there was only 9 holes accessible and we have to play it twice.... That's why I presumed there was no one on the course. The guy at the proshop told us that they decided to close 9 holes for maintenance and that is why it was so cheap to play that day. We played it and believed me there was nothing ''green'' on the course. The fairways were all burned / yellow.
I do understand that once in a while they have to do maintenance on a course to have it in good condition but they should have close it totally . By acting the way they did, they were looking for few $$$ but to the contrary it ruined the reputation of the Waldorf Astoria which was not representative of the excellency of that world wide organisation.
Briefly, total deception

No special features. No "wow" holes. Nice course, but for a resort course with greens fees around $130, not worth it.
