Celebration Golf Club is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Celebration, Florida, a few minutes from Disney World near the I-4 and 192 intersections, it’s a landmark in a unique planned community created by the Disney Development Co. in the 1990s.
The course first opened for play in 1996. The course was the last course co-designed by the father and son team of Robert Trent Jones Sr. and Robert Trent Jones Jr.
The Celebration Golf club is designed around a series of pristine lakes with clusters of native oak, pine and magnolia trees dotting the landscape. Water comes into play on 17 of the 18 holes, with the par four #2 hole being the only exception. You will find that forced carries off the tees are commonplace. So are bending fairways, and the greens are tricky throughout. Overall, Celebration is a challenging and fun layout. The practice range is a bit unusual with players hitting balls into a pond.
Par for the course is 72. From the back tees, the course plays to 6786 yards. From the forward tees, the course measures 1040 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 18, a par-5 that plays to 566 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 5, a par-3 that plays to 159 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 2, a 375 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Celebration Golf Club is # 14, a 382 yard par-4.

Course suffered somewhat from the frequent Florida thunderstorm activity this summer season. This has hampered the grounds crew from mowing the fairways and rough areas in a timely fashion which has allowed some of the areas to become a little long and leaves the residue from trimming in the fairways. Green conditions are immaculate and with the subtle undulations make for a real test of the game. Can hardly wait until this course comes back on our rota.

Played many courses in Orlando area, not the toughest, not the most celebrated, but one of the most enjoyable. Will play again when back in the area.

I love everything about this course! The staff is very friendly and welcoming. I called for tee times as this time of year in Florida, everything gets booked. They confirmed our times the day before which was very much appreciated. When you listen to Frank Sinatra singing in the practice area, what is there NOT to like?! The water range is a very unique experience. We enjoy the layout. Nothing "tricked" up and a very honest track. Love the starters in their 4x4's and have found them to always be most accomadating in getting everyone off in a smooth fashion. Upon our return, Chris gave us the coupons (which don't expire!) the excuse to come back. The food and beverages at the 19th hole have always been good and a good value. Location is very convenient in the Orlando area and easy to get to
