PGA Golf Returns To Orlando With The Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at Walt Disney World

Filed under: Orlando Golf |

Professional golf returns to Orlando this week as the PGA’s Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic comes back for its annual event at Walt Disney World’s Palm and Magnolia golf courses. The first players to tee off at the Palm course will be Jeff Maggert and Shaun Micheel on Tee #1 while on Tee #10 James Driscoll and Bobby Gates will share the 7.50am starting time. Also at 7.50am over at Disney’s Magnolia course Tommy Gainey and Chris Couch begin the day at hole #1 and Paul Goydos and Troy Merritt will be teeing off at hole #10.

I wandered over to the course today to see what shape it’s in and it looks really good. The weather forecast has some rain in the area during the week so that will certainly help to keep the course looking very green. Of the two par 72 courses, Magnolia is the slightly longer measuring 7,516 yards while the Palm comes in at 7,010 yards. The golfers will play once on each course along with their pro-am partners for the first two rounds and then the real action begins as the amateurs step aside after 36 holes and the field is cut. The final two rounds will be played at the Magnolia course and a purse of $4.7 million sees the winner collecting $846,000.

The defending champion is Robert Garrigus who shot a 21 under par 267 to beat Roland Thatcher last year and he’ll be keen for a repeat performance this year. Full week passes are just $20 and single day tickets $10. Youths aged 17 and under receive free admission when accompanied by a ticketed adult.

Also, a “Wine & Dine Experience” daily ticket for $30 includes access to five food stations near the Magnolia course’s putting green. Parking is free in the Magic Kingdom parking lot and from there you gain access to the golf courses via a complimentary shuttle to the main entrance….and watch out for Mickey and Minnie as you get off the shuttle as they’ll be around somewhere!
