We have discussion on this in the World Drive thread ,but probably worthy of its own thread.
I don't know that the scope grew as much as they wanted to keep the course a par 72. My guess is that the current 14th green will be moved to the tee box side of the pond fronting it, the new 15th tee will be where the current 14th tee is, then they will move into the woods behind the current 15th green/16th tee to build the new 15th/16th holes. Then they will build the bridge to where the new tee box for 17 will be.So 4 holes, I wonder if this area's scope grew?
Best part of one of my classes at Rosen was when we talked about golf course management and design. Some real interesting factors. Ironically, mini-golf is even more difficult.Pretty interesting stuff. I've never stopped to think about what goes into designing a golf course.
News on partial reopening of Magnolia Golf Course -
Disney's Magnolia Golf Course will be reopening for play on Monday, December 12th as a 14-hole course! The finishing touches are still being applied to the remainder of the holes, which will be available for play next year.
Holes #1 through #14 will showcase:
New teeing grounds with overseeded Bermuda grass
Reimagined greenside and fairway bunkers
Newly recontoured Bermuda grass greens that offer fast and true putting surfaces
During this time, we are offering a 33% discount off your applicable greens fee rate, which will be applied at the time of check-in!
If you would prefer to play a full 18-hole round, we recommend reserving a tee time at either Disney's Palm or Disney's Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.
Disney's Magnolia Golf Course is the longest of all of Walt Disney World Resort's courses, and among the longest golf courses in Orlando. With 18 holes of challenging water hazards, specious greens, and inviting fairways, Disney's Magnolia provides a golf experience you won't forget.www.golfwdw.com
Wish Disney would add a Disc Golf course somewhere nearby, especially with how much the sport has grown the last 2-3 years.
Don't you think they should? Would you rather they charge the same rates for an 18 hole course when there are 14 holes? Or maybe that's your point. That doesn't normally happen.Wait, am I reading that right, Disney is providing a lesser experience (fewer holes), and charging less for it! What a concept!
Right, it doesn't happen. This is like them charging for a half park day when they close early to sell it again.Don't you think they should? Would you rather they charge the same rates for an 18 hole course when there are 14 holes? Or maybe that's your point. That doesn't normally happen.
