Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course Reopening This Month with New Touches of Disney Magic

If you enjoy playing golf at Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll be happy to know we are putting even more “Disney’’ into your golf experience.

When the Magnolia course partially reopens on Dec. 12 (14 holes will be open while the redesign work continues on the remaining four), there will be several new Disney touches around the course, which is managed by Arnold Palmer Golf Management.

In celebration of the course’s 50-year history and the decades to come, each hole will have a new Disney-themed name borrowed from a classic Disney film along with an inspiring quote from Walt Disney or Arnold Palmer.


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 will also offer 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.


With its newly-elevated design and innovative layout, the Magnolia course is sure to be the ideal stop on everyone’s Disney golf trip. And it’ll be sure to wet your appetite for when the remaining redesigned holes are complete in 2023. We can’t wait to see you out on the green! For more information, please visit
