Walt Disney World Golf to reopen all 18 holes at the redesigned Magnolia Golf Course

Disney's Magnolia Golf Course will open as an 18-hole golf course on Wednesday, November 22, 2023 for the fit time since early last year.

Disney's Magnolia Golf Course is currently undergoing a major renovation project that began early last year, and since December 2022, the course has been open as a 14 hole course, while the redesign work continues on the remaining four holes.

Now Walt Disney World Golf has announced that beginning Wednesday November 22, they will be expanding the golf course to utilize all 18 holes.

However, for the time being, the course will operate with an amended Par 70 routing, as the finishing touches are still being applied to two of the holes, therefore, they have shortened holes #15 and #16 to accommodate use of all 18 newly contoured greens, and expect that the golf course construction will be complete by the middle of next year.

During this time, Walt Disney World Golf is offering a 15% discount off your applicable greens fee rate, which will be applied at the time of check-in.

With its newly-elevated design and innovative layout, each hole at the the redesigned course has a new Disney-themed name borrowed from a classic Disney film along with an inspiring quote from Walt Disney or Arnold Palmer, as the course is managed by Arnold Palmer Golf Management on behalf of Walt Disney World.

For instance, the first hole on the course, Seize Your Moment, is inspired by Disney and Pixar’s Coco and is paired with the Arnold Palmer quote, “Putting is like wisdom – partly a natural gift and partly the accumulation of experience.”

Hole No. 8 will be Adventure Is Out There, which references Disney and Pixar’s Up.

The signage quotes Walt Disney, I have been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn’t know how to get along without it."

The rest of the new names represent other iconic Disney characters and films, such as Disney’s Mary Poppins, The Lion King, Aladdin and more, making it even more fun to play golf at Walt Disney World Resort.

For those who prefer a day of skill sharpening and practice, the course also offers an expanded practice putting green, complete with an 18-hole putting course!

The larger-scale design and added contours of the area bring golfers a more realistic practice environment than ever before.
