Waldorf Astoria Golf Club
Now this is more like it
After having suffered through several 5 hour rounds during our vacation in Orlando, we were thrilled to encounter a course superb in both its condition and in its operation. From the moment we arrived until the moment we drove away, the place was run with unparalelled professionalism. As a result, we played this beautiful track in 3:45, which only added to our enjoyment. The ranger passed by several times during the round and seemed very intent on making sure that everyone was moving along appropriately. It would be hard to imagine a better golf experience. In comparison to the similarly priced Grand Cypress, the WA is major league, GC is the minors.

Top Quality Course
Played for the first time on a recommendation from traveling Joe. Definitely worth the trip. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Check in was a breeze. Course conditions were top notch with a nice mix of holes. Great for most handicaps but not for biginners. Value is always subjective. Some will find it a little pricey but at just less than $200 it's definitely not "overpriced".

No problem with pace of play. Played n 3:30 hrs. Greens had been top dressed early morning and very fast. A little expensive but service and course great. Would play again for sure.

Best course I have played in awhile.
Everything about the day was perfect. We arrived and was met by helpers who parked our vehicle , took our clubs to the cart so we were able to hit balls at the range before playing. The starter explained the course and sent us on our way. The only negative for the round was the pace. The course was so beautiful and fun to play my three friend and myself did not mind. When we finished the took the club to the vehicle and had them ready for us to go. It just a very enjoyable day for golf, and the weather was perfect also.

Our last day of golf. I saved this day for a golf course I had read about but never played. Our group of four good friends rated this course as fabulous. I know the price is usually a lot but I used the voucher that I had purchased from golf now to play here today. The whole course from fairways to greens. Was just perfect. From the minute we drove up till we were done somebody was there to assist us. The time it took to play was abit long 5 hours, none of us complained. We all enjoy the day.

Definitely A to A+ conditions
Great conditions---especially for January.
If you have a good shorter game, you might not struggle as much as I did with these persistent elevated greens. No complaints with the course----all my fault.
One of the BEST CONDITIONED COURSES I HAVE EVER PLAYED (40+ years).

Makes you feel like a Pro
Llayed The Waldorf Astoria course in March 2014. Overall best course I have played so far in Orlando and have played a Disney course and 3 courses around Disney.
From the beginning, staff was very professional and had complimentary valet as well as took bag to cart (that has a gps) and got it set up on the range. The range is very well kept up as well with balls ready for you with grass range.
Course was tough but definitely fair. Had a tough day score wise, but definitely could have taken advantage if you hit fairways. There are some really nice views with a ton of strategically placed bunkers and water all around the course. Bring extra balls if your not a great golfer.
Course was in great shape from tee boxes to greens and greens rolled very true but are fast. The course is really scenic too with all of the water around the fairways and greens.
You even get a personalized bag tag at the end of your round.
I would love to play the course again when visiting orlando and definitely worth the steep price.
