The highlight for any golfer playing Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course has to be the Mickey Mouse bunker on the par-3. In late August 2017, the team at Arnold Palmer Golf Management, which manages the four Walt Disney World Resort golf courses, updated and enhanced the one-of-a-kind Mickey-shaped sand bunker.
Over the years, the bunker has experienced periodic rebuilds, the most recent being in 2013. Climate and soil conditions can compromise the longevity of a bunker and result in loss of shape and sinking sand due to erosion. Which is why this year, the course has invested in a new construction method which will protect the famous bunker over the coming years.
In an effort to preserve its unique shape, the team used Capillary Concrete, which makes the sand conditions ideal for play, while also improving the lifespan of the bunker.
Disney Golf also has big plans to add more Mickey-shaped bunkers to the other three Walt Disney World Resort golf courses! They will be added to hole No. 8 on the Disney’s Palm Golf Course, No. 12 on Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course and No. 9 on Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course sometime next summer.
