Opened in October 2009, the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club is Rees Jones latest addition to Florida golf. Designed with a five-tee system for all playing abilities, yet quite challenging, the Waldorf Astoria Golf Club 18-hole Rees Jones-designed championship course winds through a large wetland preserve and measures 7108 yards with a Par 72, Slope 139, and 74.9 Rating from its Professional Tees. Despite being a relatively new Orlando golf course, Waldorf Astoria Golf Club was ranked as one of the best golf courses in Orlando Florida in 2015.
Waldorf Astoria Golf Club features holes that are visually arresting from tee to green and require intelligent management of the game. Bunkers are carved to be reminiscent of the hazards designed on courses a century ago. Majestic stands of pine and cypress trees line the fairways. The style was dictated by the land's existing contours, which Jones then enhanced, always mindful of the natural elements and environmental issues.
A classic design with square tee boxes and meticulously maintained course conditions, Waldorf Astoria Golf Club is a welcome addition to Orlando golf. Exceptional guest service reserved for only the finest country clubs treat golfers as if they were a "member for the day"
The golf course is a stones throw away from Walt Disney World Resort and is considered a true gem for Disney area golf courses.
