Oak Trail, designed for younger golfers, is a nine-hole walking course.

Managed by Palmer Golf, all of the Disney Golf courses are visually stunning, incredibly well maintained, and each unique in its own way.  But no matter which course you play, you still experience some Disney magic!

As far as golfing fun for the entire families with children of any age, there are two themed miniature golf complexes, each with two courses, Fantasia Gardens and Winter Summerland.  Each complex has unique themes and are fun for the entire family!

Congratulations to Walt Disney World, Palmer Golf, and all the amazing golf courses at Disney!
