Sauna @ Senses Grand Floridian
For that “one of a kind” guy… Schedule your special guy a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience one of Walt Disney World’s finest golf courses. These beautiful courses provide an authentic PGA tour experience and have been featured in several golf magazine’s and Orlando tourism publications. Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course near the Grand Floridian Resort is the longest of the Disney golf courses and considered one of Orlando’s premiere courses. If a tee time is a bit ambitious or simply not enough room in the schedule, consider arranging a personalized, private lesson with an official PGA golf instructor. Private lessons can last up to 45 minutes and are available for juniors (ages 5-17). To schedule a tee time or lesson call (407) WDW-GOLF (939-4653) or book online.
