Disney is adding three more Mickey Mouse-shaped bunkers at its golf courses.
The first Mickey sand bunker is the highlight of the No. 6 hole at Disney’s Magnolia Golf Course. Its popularity has prompted the resort to add similar sand traps on 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.
The first Mickey bunker was recently enhanced in an effort to preserve its unique shape.
The team at Arnold Palmer Golf Management, which manages all four Walt Disney World Resort courses, used a special concrete mixture that will extend the lifespan of the bunker while also maintaining the sand for optimal play, according to Darrell Fry, sports media director at Walt Disney World Resort.
The three new Mickey bunkers will be added sometime next summer.
