More Information About Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course

  • Rental equipment is available at each of our golf courses so you don’t have to lug your clubs along on your trip! This also provides a perfect opportunity to “test drive” a different brand. The latest equipment from TaylorMade Golf is available in both Men’s and Women’s models, as well as Adidas golf shoes, for those who choose to travel light. In addition, Junior EPEC Golf rental equipment is available!

    We have over 100 sets of rental clubs available for rent on a daily basis, therefore, there’s no need to be concerned that we won’t have the equipment that you desire, available for you at time of check-in. To help us prepare for your arrival, please notate during the reservation process the equipment that you will require.

    Golf club sharing is not permitted at our courses. All players are required to have their own bag and clubs. Golf bags are available for use if you wish to travel with clubs for multiple players in a single bag, and split them up when you arrive at the course.

  • Golf course carts are enhanced with GPS technology that offers realistic images of hazards, yardages, hole diagrams, pin locations and more to help you strategize your play.

    The use of a golf cart is included in your greens fee; there is no additional cart fee. Carts are designed to be shared by 2 Guests and are equipped with a small cooler, a sand bucket to fill divots, front windshields and rear pull-down club covers, in case of a passing shower. In order to put the least amount of stress on our turf and ensure that all golfers have access to golf cars, we will condense and pair up two golfers per golf car.

    To provide an enjoyable pace of play, players are required to use our golf carts on our 3 championship courses. For Guests who prefer to walk the entire course, we recommend Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course, a 9-hole walking course.

    Family Golf Carts – Walt Disney World® Golf, operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management, is pleased to offer Disney character themed four-seater golf carts for use by families playing at our courses! Up until recently, if you had multiple family members out for a round of golf, you would need to take two separate, traditional two-seater golf carts, even if one or more of your family members were simply riding along and not playing. Since you must be at least 16 years or older with a valid driver's license to drive the carts, this proved to be inconvenient for families with younger children. Now, a family of up to four, for example two adults and two younger non-playing children, can take a single four-seater golf cart and stay together during the round. To learn more about requesting the use of one of these carts, please click here for more information!

    Accessibility Golf Carts - From seniors who experience challenges walking, through to veterans with multiple disabilities, every rider has a unique story. SoloRider designed a single-rider golf car that fits aesthetically and in terms of style with standard golf cars. In terms of psychology, people with disabilities or older persons do not want to take risks that could cause additional injury or lack of mobility. To learn more about the SoloRider experience, available at Walt Disney World® Golf, click here. Please be sure to speak with our reservations agents regarding the need to utilize one of these vehicles the next time you visit Walt Disney World® Golf.

  • Reservations are highly recommended but not necessary, and walk-up golfers will try to be accommodated. Single or twosome walk-up golfers will have the best chance to play. However, it is best to reserve a tee time online or call the Golf Master Starter at (407) WDW-GOLF or (407) 939-4653, even if it is just a few hours before you plan to walk up.

    Please plan to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your tee time to allow for check-in, cart assignment and a healthy warm-up. If you are unavoidably detained and arrive late, we will do the best to accommodate you whenever possible.

    Group Reservations

    Planning a group outing? You can call the Golf Group Sales & Events Office at (407) 454-5000 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


    Tee times must be canceled and party sizes must be reduced at least 24 hours in advance to avoid a possible payment penalty. Tee times that are canceled or left unreduced inside of 24 hours are subject to be charged to the credit card provided when reservations were made. Golfers are encouraged to call the Golf Master Starter at (407) WDW-GOLF or (407) 939-4653 to cancel or modify party size, even if you are inside the 24-hour window. Those who made tee time reservations online may also cancel online.

    Inclement Weather Policy

    Rain checks are issued only for players who started their round under normal conditions and for some unforeseen circumstances could not finish. This would include weather or an emergency. Twilight, Super Twilight, and Players Club members who play prior to stipulated access times may receive a rain check for inclement weather only, not for darkness. All Guests seeking a rain check must return to the Golf Shop immediately after coming from the course and provide their original receipt to the Golf Shop attendant. A rain check will then be issued for a $ figure, based on the number of holes completed, and will be pro-rated against the greens fee that was paid to play on that day. Rain checks are valid as a credit towards your next round at the Disney golf courses, or any merchandise in the Golf Shops, but ONLY at the facility where it was issued. Rain checks DO NOT Expire!

  • As you play through each round on the course, you have the option of grabbing a quick bite at any of our Disney-character themed roving Refreshment carts. Be sure to spot all three of them as you play, and don’t miss out on this great new photo opportunity! Whether you are in need of a refreshingly cold, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, beverage, or you desire some much needed sustenance for a scorecard-saving back nine surge, our Refreshment carts have you covered! From soft drinks to sports drinks, coffee, beer, both domestic and import, as well as cocktails are all available for your enjoyment.

    Personal Coolers

    Personal coolers and any type of food or beverage storage devices are not permitted on our courses. Each golf cart is equipped with a cooler, and your refreshment cart server will be happy to fill it with ice and add your beverage selections from his or her cart. Comfort stations on the golf courses are also equipped with ice machines and water fountains, however, we recommend that you bring your own beverage vessel as in an effort to conserve on the distribution of single-use plastic products, as well as protect the many wildlife that occupy our property.

    Protecting the Environment by Minimizing Waste!

    Walt Disney World® Golf is committed to protecting the planet and creating a positive environmental legacy for future generations as we operate and build our businesses. In support of our goal to send zero waste to landfill, we are minimizing the amount of single-use cups provided on each of Disney’s Golf courses. Please join us in our mission to reduce our environmental impact by bringing a reusable cup you can fill with ice water provided throughout the courses. For your convenience, we also have Walt Disney World® Golf branded reusable cups available for purchase in our gift shops.

  • Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Pro Shop and Clubhouse are located at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa.

    Pro Shop and Rentals

    Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Pro Shop features an impressive selection of golf merchandise and top-of-the-line rentals and is one of 2 pro shops that serve golfers throughout Walt Disney World® resort. Take home such souvenirs as clubs, logo shirts, caps and towels.

    Premium rental clubs are available for men and women in both right- and left-handed models, and junior clubs are on hand, too. Rental golf shoes are also available, and neither rental shoes nor clubs need to be reserved in advance.

    We ask that each Guest has his or her own bag and clubs to help keep up the pace of play on our courses. We do offer loaner golf bags at no charge for Guests who condense their clubs and leave their bulky bags at home for travel.

    Storing Golf Clubs

    Walt Disney World® Resort Golf Courses can store your equipment overnight, and have them ready for you at the beginning of each day. Please inquire at the end of your round about this opportunity and our Guest Service staff will gladly assist with making the appropriate arrangements to store your clubs.


    Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Clubhouse features locker rooms and showers for golfers looking to freshen up. There is no fee for these lockers, and keys are available from the Pro Shop.

  • To provide the best possible putting surfaces, Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course is a non-metal spike facility. Golfers may wear shoes with metal spike alternatives, or tennis shoes. Proper golf attire is also required; denim jeans or shorts are not permitted.

    Men May Wear
    Polo-style shirts with collars
    Turtlenecks or mock turtleneck shirts
    Slacks or Bermuda-length shorts

    Women May Wear

    Suitable shirts or blouses (with or without collars)

  • In order to give all Guests the opportunity to play, we do try to pair players into foursomes whenever practical. This promotes a consistent pace of play. For less-skilled golfers who are worried about being paired up, we recommend the 9-hole walking Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. Additionally, while we can accommodate any size party or group of golfers, we limit players to a maximum of 4 Guests per tee time. A party of 5 would be booked as a threesome and twosome, with the understanding that each of these may be paired to fill out foursomes for each tee time.


    Rider Carts or Ride-a-Long Carts: The number of carts we have in our fleet are intended for those Guests who are playing Golf. Spectator Carts will be in short supply, but can be available during off-peak times. Spectators are welcome to walk the course alongside their guests playing the course, as long as they keep up with the pace of play and stay with your group.

  • Complimentary transportation via taxi is available to Guests of select Walt Disney World® resort hotels. You may request a ride at the Valet Desk or from Bell Services at select Resort hotels, and in the Pro Shop or from any golf operations staff members at the golf courses. Guests are advised to check with Guest Services or the Concierge for any transportation options offered by their hotel.

    Golf Day Guests who wish to arrange their own transportation to the golf courses will find that there is no charge for parking at the golf course itself or when going through the Auto Plaza on the way to the golf courses.
