Can anyone tell me about golf at SSR? DBF is a HUGH golfer and we will be taking a day to golf. Can we rent clubs there? (too much of a pain to travel with ours) How's the course?

Club rentals are $45, $15 for a partial set, and free to juniors. They have both Titleist and Cobra to chose from. Rental is free to resort guests if you pay a non-discounted greens fee. I guess you'd need to do the math to figure out if the DVC discount on the greens fee or the free clubs would net you the best deal.

"The bridge?" IS there something special about the bridge? (I like history) I was just wondering why it is in quotes? Beautiful picture by the way.

Has anyone ever used the Spa? Is there a place to go for prices? I would love to plan ahead but can't find anything on the spa.

It's currently owned by Nikki Bryant, www.relaxedyet.com, but I understand it is changing to Disney owned soon.

I will be at SSR Thursday night. My first DV rental. I am planning on using the spa. I will let you all know.

I need a neck and scalp massage, and goodness knows what else.

When we were at SSR in August, the gated-area into SSR from DVC Way was closed for construction. Does anyone know if it is open now? We are headed there in a few days and I need to give directions to family meeting us there.

Thank you. I always take bridge photos when I visit SSR. I personally think of the bridge as the icon of SSR. Sort of like the castle at MK or spaceship earth at EPCOT.

Question: (I am only on pg 24 of the thread so excuse my stupidity) What are people saying when they talk about, "lock off" and "dedicated."

KLeonard - Is the bridge hard to find? I love bridges for some reason. I do not like driving on some of them, but they are pretty to look at. May I have permission to copy your picture?

A lock-off is a studio connected to a one bedroom via an inside connecting door. There are 2 entrances to the units.

A dedicated is a 2 bedroom with one entrance.

How about if one just wants to use the driving range? I know a bucket of balls is $7. My husband is convinced that they will have pro shop "demos" like many of the courses he is used. I am thinking Disney is a little different in that they are not so much into providing the use of demo clubs that they hope will lead to sales as much as more traditional golf course pro shops. Would the driving range use fall into the $15 partial set you cited above?

The bridge connects the Springs (check-in and one of the feature pools) with the Paddocks (the other feature pool). The bridge is pretty much in the middle of the resort. I do not put restrictions on my photos, you may copy if you wish.
