Golfers at Disney have a vast array of possible opportunities. Walt Disney World has four full 18 hole golf courses and have hosted PGA Tour events for at least 30 years! There is also a 9 hole par 36 walking course for those of us with less stamina!
If full golf isn't your cup of tea, try one of the Disney MiniGolf courses. WinterSummerland is by Blizzard Beach and is a really fun course which will take about an hour to complete, maybe a bit less. Fantasia is a little harder but not too hard ;-)

Palm - Designed by Joe Lee, par for this course is 72. This course is all about WATER.
Magnolia - Also designed by Joe Lee, this is also par 72 but this one catches you out with SAND , with 14 bunkers on Hole 4 alone. Strategy definitely needed here!
Lake Buena Vista - Also designed by Joe Lee, this one has NARROW FAIRWAYS.
Osprey Ridge - Designed by Tom Fazio, this par 72 has LARGE ROLLING GREENS needing an excellent short game. This is said by many to be the best of the Disney courses
Oak Trail - Designed by Ron Garl, par 36, villain-free for juniors and beginners.
Sadly the Eagle Pines course was closed in August 2007
Private golf lessons by PGA Pro staff is available as well as rental equipment from three pro shops. There are also 4 driving ranges and putting greens.
Usefully and often overlooked, there is complimentary transporation for golfers to the courses from any WDW resort.
