There are a lot of exciting new enhancements taking place around Walt Disney World Resort and our golf courses are no exception.

We upgraded the bunkers at our Magnolia course in 2015 and now we are planning similar enhancements for our Lake Buena Vista, Palm and Oak Trail courses. One of the coolest enhancements will be adding Mickey-shaped bunkers to Lake Buena Vista and Oak Trail similar to the one on No. 6 on the Magnolia course.

The Palm course is currently undergoing its regular aeration process. It’ll re-open June 18.

While we are creating the Mickey-shaped bunkers, we are also going to enhance all of the bunkers at the Lake Buena Vista course, including adding new powdery white sand. At Oak Trail, the greens are being restored to their original size and totally resurfaced utilizing paspalum grass for the first time ever on a Disney putting green.

The new developments for those two courses begin June 18 at Lake Buena Vista and June 25 at Oak Trail. Both courses will be finished by mid-August.

In the meantime, there will be special discounted rates at both courses in addition to regular rates at the Magnolia and Palm courses, which are open for play all summer, along with FootGolf, the hybrid soccer and golf game recently added to Oak Trail.
