Walt Disney World Golf Courses
My wife (no pics) is planning a WDW trip for our family next year. I’ll have one day to play at one of the resort courses, but not sure which one to play. Looking for feedback from those of you on the golf board that have played there before. Thanks in advance.

ETA
My options are:
Disney’s Palms GC
Disney’s Magnolia GC
Disney’s Lake Buena Vista GC

Tranquilo course is very nice. I think it used to be called Osprey. It's a Fazio design, affiliated with Four Seasons, on Disney property I believe.

Osprey Ridge is now part of the Four Seasons Resort and renamed Tranquillo. It's where they play the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions™ .

3 very different courses. Mag is the hardest. LBV is my favorite, but I never score well there. Palm has a sentimental feel to me because I shot my all time low 9 on the front. 34. Yep, imploded on the back for a 42. :(

Good news is that Disney just released all new golf carts. They re VERY nice.

Of the 3, I would go with Magnolia.

As other have said, Waldorf and Tranquilo are better tracks and in great shape. Not far from Disney you also have Grand Cypress (which has a Nicklaus design that’s an ode to St Andrews) and Orange Country National, which is top notch.

Didn’t they combine parts of Eagle Pines and Osprey Ridge?

As I understand it, holes 1-15 at Tranquilo are original holes from Osprey Ridge, with some minor upgrades. 16-18 are new designs from Fazio, because part of the Four Seasons is built on the original 18th hole.

Most of Eagle Pines was covered by the rest of the Four Seasons and the Golden Oak community.

No. Developed over Eagle Pines. Hated that, as it was my favorite of the two. The new hotel/resort is pretty much where Eagle Pines was.
Four Seasons did some sprucing up on Osprey. Contoured some bunkers, etc.

If you have time for other courses nearby, I highly recommend the two courses at Orange County National. Probably about 10 minutes away.
Panther is a tour qualifying site. Great course. Crooked Cat is also a great track.
