Defying all good sense, the GolfBlogger finally scheduled a golf trip to Florida—in June. Of course, it wasn’t actually a golf trip, but rather a family trip to Disney World. But part of the deal was that I get to play some golf.
So on Thursday, I had a 6:51 tee time to play Disney’s Lake Buena Vista golf course. I had briefly considered one of the newer courses, such as the Magnolia or Osprey Ridge, but in the end decided that I really wanted to try Disney World’s original track. I found the Joe Lee design to be fun, if not particularly memorable.
The weather was very hot, and humid—even in the morning—and a haze had settled in that occasionally made it difficult to see. But I raced around the course in fine fashion, shooting a 91; not a bad score on a course I had never played before. I finished in just over three hours, and then it was back for a final day at the parks.
The rest of the vacation was about what you’d expect: a lot of walking and sitting through rides and shows. Fun, but exhausting.
