Thanks to Ben Hampton, who sent me an e-mail today, I became aware that the reopening of the Palm golf course, which is undergoing a major refurbishment, has been delayed due to weather.
I have confirmed this information with Josh Smith, Regional Vice President at Palmer Golf Management. Josh indicates that the severe weather this summer has resulted in problems in shaping and grassing the course. Sod suppliers have also had trouble due to the excessive rains.
Guests with affected tee times are being contacted to notify them of the change and the golf staff will work with Guests to schedule tee times on the other two Disney World courses or will work to find satisfactory alternatives.
If you have tee times at the Palm golf course, from November 15, 2013 to December 14, 2013 and you have not yet been contacted by Disney’s golf staff, call them at 1-407-WDW-GOLF (1-407-939-4653) to find a suitable resolution.
Thanks to Ben and Josh for their timely information!
