    My husband wants to play golf a couple of times while we are visiting next week (staying off-site). Disney prices seem a little high.

    Twilight golf to save $$?

    What are the recommended courses?

    Any suggestions??

    Highlands Reserve are currently doing a summer month weekdays special where golf costs $39 after 2pm, including Callaway club hire and cart!

    Highlands Reserve is a nice course....also try Kissimmee Oaks (if you're from UK) pick up a Sunday copy of the Daily Mail - 10% off discount voucher in there, Remington and Southern Dunes.

    Also, pick up a copy of the Golfers Guide when you are here...most golf shops have it.

    For rates/discounts take a look here, most of it is updated I'd say about 95% of the information. It lists all the WDW course twilight rates as well as other special rates. It also lists the rates/discounts for many of the area courses.

    (scroll down past the advertisements at the top of this site)

    Another website that I found for my husband last year is an excellent resource that has detailed reviews of many courses in Cental Florida as well as beautiful pictures of many of the holes and the clubhouses. There are statistics, lists the amenities and links you to the website of the golf course if there is one. It is a very comprehensive site and my husband thought that the majority of the reviews were spot on. He found the site extremely helpful.

    My husband has played golf at the following so far:

    WDW area courses:

    Osprey Ridge
    Eagle Pines
    Magnolia
    Palm

    Kissimmee/Osceola County:
    Mystic Dunes
    St. Cloud Golf Club

    Volusia County:
    DeBary Golf and CC

    Seminole County:
    Timacuan

    Orange County:
    Errol Estate CC


    Polk County:
    Highlands Reserve CC
    Southern Dunes

    Lake County:
    Black Bear GC
    Deer Island GC


    There are quite a few he would like to play. But in August I think he is only going to do Osprey Ridge, Eagle Pines and Falcon's Fire.

    He loves Florida golf. So much so he wants to retire in the Orlando area. This is saying a lot considering my husband is very discerning about where he plays. He is from Monterey, Ca. and he worked at Spanish Bay for two years and had access to all the Pebble beach courses every day.

    PM me if you have any questions. I heavily researched this for him because I really like him to have a good time when we are on vacation. My husband is not a great golfer but he has a passion for it. I hope this information helps.

    Also all of the courses my husband played included golf cart. We were thinking this is because it just gets too hot in Florida and a cart is a necessity rather than a luxury.
