Dave Hartmann has been a Cast Member at Disney’s Fantasia Gardens Miniature Golf since January of 2007 so it’s no surprise that he has an incredible love for the game. Dave has played the course more than 557 times! He even kept all of the scorecards.

Dave discovered the course many years prior to becoming a Cast Member at Fantasia Gardens. He even held the official record for 11 years, with a 47 on the 72-par course. His original score was a 90 so he worked hard to improve it, returning to the course every time he was on vacation in the area. This lasted from 1996 to 2003. He was eventually offered a job by the course manager and has been working on his game ever since!

His love of the game got him the job but his amazing nature with guests and other cast members ensure he always has a place at Fantasia Gardens. Somewhat of a local legend, Dave has many regulars that come to play and request him to join in. They love hearing his tips and advice! “What keeps me coming back is the chance to spend time with people,” he says. “I enjoy going out and talking with the people on the course, and we have a lot of fun. That’s what gives them memories.”
