Celebration Golf Club is the last of only four courses that were jointly designed by father and son team, Robert Trent Jones and Robert Trent Jones Jr.
There is quite an open feel to the front-nine loop, with gentle earthmounding playing home to several small bunkers. Arguably the best of the holes come on the more interesting back-nine. The pristine fairways are often lined with bunkers and framed by lakes and ponds.
Holes deserving the most "celebration" include: the good looking par-3 13th with its tee-to-green carry over water; the swamp-lined par-4 14th, and the long par-5 18th that weaves its way through old oaks. A lake initially skirts the fairway's left side, before water switches to the right side as you approach the final green; behind it stand the blue-roofed clubhouse and attendant wood-framed wind pump.
A charming and elegant course, but one that's not without its challenges. Housing on some of the course perimeter is never in range and tends to enhance rather than detract from your enjoyment of this well-maintained layout.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.

In the early 1990s, the Disney Development Company (DDC) set about developing a new town on the edge of Walt Disney World in Orlando. Disney CEO Michael Eisner encouraged the development of a town worthy of the Disney brand and the creation of a legacy that encapsulated Walt Disney's vision of an Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT). With input from leaders in architecture, town planning, education, health and technology the town of Celebration was created.
