FORE! Walt Disney World Adds New Player’s Club Options for Golfers!

The Disney Golf Player’s Club is like an Annual Pass for the tee time set, giving you bonuses above and beyond admission to Disney’s Oak Trail. It’s been a hit among golfers since its introduction in 2013, but now there’s been some big adjustments!

Now there are three tiers of membership; enjoy the basic perks at the Silver Tier, or go pro with the new Platinum option. Just consider us your caddy, as we help you pick the perfect level for your needs.

The first, and most important thing to note: a Player’s Club membership includes access to all four Disney World golf courses: Palm, Magnolia, Lake Buena Vista, and Oak Trail. It also includes access to short game and driving range facilities. While a Platinum Plus annual pass can net you admission to Oak Trail and the facilities at ESPN’s Wide World of Sports, you won’t be able to go anywhere else.

A Platinum Plus pass will get you into the parks, but only one of the golf courses.

The Silver Tier is $29 a month, or $319 a year; the traditional price for Player’s Club membership. It still includes complementary greens fees for afternoon tee times, access to instructional clinics, and a discount on food and merchandise. You also get a free bucket of driving range balls per day, discounted tee times outside of standard hours, and unlimited use of the driving range and short game facilities.

All tiers get a 15% discount on golf merchandise, though this doesn’t stack with Annual Pass or Cast Member discounts.

The next tier, Gold, is $39 a month or $429 a year. This one is a bit more consistent with previous versions of the Player’s Club. It includes all Silver benefits, plus walk up availability for open tee times (15-45 minutes in advance), extended access times, an additional bucket of range balls per day, two complementary clinic guest passes per month, and a $5 discount on all player’s club events.

Most complementary tee times are in the afternoon and evening. You’ll need to pay for morning access.

The Platinum tier is $69 a month, or $759 a year. This is for the most hard core golfers. It includes four guest clinic passes a month, three guest rounds per month at your normal rate, and complementary play at Oak Trail after 12:00, seven days a week. You also get unlimited buckets of range balls.

Here’s a chart to help you break everything down.
