Vacation golf.  For all my golfers out there, need I say more?  We all do it, as soon as a trip is booked, we start Googling for golf courses nearby.  Disney is no different.  Walt Disney World has three championship courses and a fun nine hole course.  If you have time for eighteen holes, I would definitely recommend the Magnolia Course.  Great layout, challenging course, and a Mickey bunker to boot.  Trust me, you’ll want to toss a ball in the bunker and try to hit it out.  Impossible to resist.

6th Hole – Par 3 – Magnolia Golf Course

Sneak in 9

Most times when you’re at Walt Disney World, golf tends to take a backseat to other fun activities.  I’m looking at you, Expedition Everest.  I’m here to tell you a little secret.  Let’s keep it between us.  Disney does this thing called the Sunrise 9.  We love this hidden secret.  Serena and I usually end up playing a couple of rounds.  Most days we tee-off and are done 9 nine holes by 9 am, plenty of time to still enjoy the parks.  

Why We Love It  

When we’re at Walt Disney World, the last thing either of us want to do is play a 5+ hr round of golf.  If you can’t tell yet, you will find out soon, we like to go. 🙂  About three years ago we found out about the Sunrise 9 when trying to book a tee time.  It seemed too good to be true, $35 per person for nine holes, with a cart, breakfast sandwich, and two drinks (hello breakfast brew!). Believe us, it’s even better than it sounds.  

There is something about strolling up to a nearly empty golf course, seeing the sunrise illuminating the dew on grass that is just so peaceful.  You may even get a gander at a deer or wild turkey.  For us, it’s a great way to relax and enjoy a low-stress round of golf, or maybe it’s the breakfast brew that does it, either way, we love it!

You have the option to play the back nine at any of the 3 championship courses and you could also do the Sunset 9.  The choice is yours.  Hit ’em straight!
