The Meanest Golf Hole In Florida

The Meanest Golf Hole In Florida

What is the meanest golf hole in Florida? Is it the 18th hole at the TPC Blue Monster? Or perhaps the 8th hole at the PGA National Champions Course?

They may be tough on the professional players on the tour, but the meanest hole in Florida for weekend golfers is one of the most photographed holes in the United States. It is the par-3 Sixth Hole at Walt Disney World’s Magnolia course.

This hole at the longest golf course at WDW starts with an elevated tee where you get a wonderful view of the large tranquil water hazard and the even more elevated green. And there it is – staring you in the face – a Mickey Mouse shaped bunker.

Sure, every other golfer takes out the cellphone and snaps sandy old Mickey – but you realize that if your ball lands in that bunker, your friends will have a field day photographing you. You and Mickey will be on the billboard of every office wall, not counting the social media from Boston to Tokyo.

Yes – the Magnolia course at WDW has a dangerous hole. To avoid Mickey, golfers hit bad shots all over the woods and into the water.
