Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course Reopening This Month with New Touches of Disney Magic

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

If you enjoy playing golf at Walt Disney World Resort, you’ll be happy to know we are putting even more “Disney’’ into your golf experience.

When the Magnolia course partially reopens on
Dec. 12 (14 holes will be open while the redesign work continues on the
remaining four), there will be several new Disney touches around the course,
which is managed by Arnold Palmer Golf Management.

In celebration of the course’s 50-year history
and the decades to come, each hole will have a new Disney-themed name borrowed
from a classic Disney film along with an inspiring quote from Walt Disney or
Arnold Palmer.

For instance, the first hole on the course, “Seize
Your Moment,” is inspired by Disney and Pixar’s “Coco” and is paired with the
Arnold Palmer quote, “Putting is like wisdom – partly a natural gift and partly
the accumulation of experience.” Hole No. 8 will be “Adventure Is Out There,” which
references Disney and Pixar’s “Up.” The signage quotes Walt Disney, “I have
been up against tough competition all my life. I wouldn’t know how to get along
without it.”

The rest of the new names represent other
iconic Disney characters and films, such as Disney’s “Mary Poppins,” “The Lion
King,” “Aladdin” and more, making it even more fun to play golf at Walt Disney
World Resort.

For those who prefer a day of skill sharpening
and practice, the course will also offer an expanded practice putting green, complete
with an 18-hole putting course! The larger-scale design and added contours of
the area bring golfers a more realistic practice environment than ever before.
