  • Hole 15 will become a long par 5 instead of a par 3
  • Hole 16 will have a new pin location and force players left instead of right
  • Hole 17 will become a par 3 instead of a par 4

Along with the new hole configurations, all 18 holes will get new green surfaces.

Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course, one of four golf courses, first opened in 1971, the same year Magic Kingdom opened. The date the course will reopen after these changes has not been set but officials hope it will happen later this year.
