Disney Vacation Club members never have trouble keeping busy, but if you need a break from the action at the theme parks and resorts, why not reserve a round or two of golf? There are three outstanding championship Disney golf courses and one 36-hole walking course to choose from, all conveniently located and professionally operated by Arnold Palmer Golf Management.
Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course is rated 4 stars by Golf Digest magazine and certified as a Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary.

It is located conveniently near Disney's Grand Floridan Resort, and Disney's Polynesian Resort.
Disney’s Palm Golf Course is rated 4 stars by Golf Digest and features plenty of palm trees, sparkling lakes, sloping greens, a fair number of water hazards and 94 bunkers.

There are currently several discount golf programs available at Walt Disney World. The “Disney World Two Round Golf Pass” will be available from January 19th through March 29th of 2015. Resort guests pay just $150 for two rounds of golf, allowing you to play two rounds of Disney golf on any course, any time and any day. You will be able to call up to 90 days in advance to reserve your pass and make your actual payment at the pro shop upon arrival. This promotional pass does not include practice balls at the range, and the two rounds of golf may not be scheduled for the same day of play.
Another fun discount choice is the “Sunrise 9” program, which permits you to play 9 holes at either the Oak Trail, the Magnolia or the Lake Buena Vista course for just $29 (plus tax) per person. This special price includes a pre-round breakfast and a post-round beverage.
