A Golf Resort for the Services

By Joe M. Randolph

In these times, we are more aware of the service of our men and women in the military. We can all agree that they deserve every kind of consideration from the basics to the most extravagant, like, say a golf resort.

Yes, if only we could give them a golfing resort completely for the employment of active-duty and retired military staff and the Coast Guard, and current members of the Reserve, National Guard and the civilian workers of the Dept of Defense. While we are dreaming, why don't you have it designed like a Walt Disney luxury resort and put it next to the Sorcery Dominion itself with occasions to visit the theme parks?

That would be the outline of the Shades of Green golfing resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. It was originally part of the park and named The Golf Resort, then extended to include guest rooms in 1986 and renamed The Disney Hotel . It was leased starting in 1994 by the U.S. Office of Defense then acquired early in 1996 as an element of its Morale, Welfare and Recreation program.

A Wish upon a Star

The Shades of Green Golfing Resort is in the luxury class with 586 guest rooms, a fitness center, colonnade, lighted tennis courts, 2 heated swimming pools, a pool for kids, and washing facilities. The dining facilities are also what you would expect of a luxury golfing resort. It includes an Italian restaurant called Mangino's, a sports bar named Evergreen's, a break bar with extended hours, a '50's style ice cream parlor named America, a family style smorgasboard called The Garden Studio . A break / sandwich stand poolside and the Express Caf.

For the purposes of early theme park entry and transport on Disney property, Shades of Green golfing resort is thought of as a Disney resort. This indicates that guests of Shades of Green golfing resort can use the hour before opening and up to 3 hours straight away following the posted closing time in Walt Disney World.

There are special attractions open at Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot Center, Disney-MGM Studios and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. The ticket office on site offers discounted admission tickets for the Disney World theme parks to all eligible guests. The golf resort is also open to those who vacation with the eligible guests.

Room rates aren't fixed so you need to call to debate.
