The sign for all three golf courses was in a hedge with giant golf tees, but it’s been bulldozed.

Dozens — possibly hundreds — of trees have been removed from the edge of the golf courses.

Crews were using an excavator next to another pile of trees.

Trees are gone from the Shades of Green entrance down to the World Drive overpass that opened last year. This is likely connected to the next phase of World Drive/Floridian Way expansion in the area. The sidewalk from Floridian Way to the guard gate at Shades of Green has also been removed.

Trees have also been cleared from the other side of the road next to the Transportation and Ticket Center’s Simba lot.

Last year, Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course closed for several months for a reimagining. It reopened in December, though the tree clearing and sign demolition may be an extension of that project. The last four holes of Magnolia remain unavailable, and will not reopen until roadwork is finished.

We expect a new sign will be installed.

Despite the construction near the road, all three golf courses remain open.
