I've played this course many times in the past. Greens in great condition today but very, very wet for not having received rain in several days. As I understand it, this is the rule for this course but seemed exceptionally muddy just about everywhere. Made hitting short wedges very difficult because extremely tight fairways with those muddy conditions. Staff is always great and love the layout. Even at regular price this is a good deal.

Well we appreciate your opinion the condition of the golf course is rather impressive considering the amount of rain we have had . There have been numerous tournaments at Champions including the Honda Classic Qualifying this year. My suggestion would be to play again soon. We are dying up nicely.

The cart paths were severely damaged during the 11 inches of rain recently. We have worked diligently repairing them. Please come play again soon, it has been an extremely wet Oct and Nov. we are drying up nicely.

As soon as I arrived I was told that it was cart path only rule because of the excess rain water which never seems to drain. The course drainage design is of poor quality. Water everywhere including the cart paths being flooded.

No roll for your ball off the tee. Greens were just ok.

I have played this course for the past 5 years and it seems to have been deteriorating every year.

Won't be returning.

My staff was instructed by me to let our customers know that the golf course was extremely wet 11 inches of rain in 16 days . The beauty of the golf course in times of incredible amounts of rain makes it challenging for our Superintendent. The golf course last year hosted the PGA TOUR Qualifier for the Honda Classic and also has hosted the West Palm Beach Open and numerous pro-ams which is quite an honor for a semi-private facility. We hope you give Champions another try when the conditions are dryer.

Again we apologize for the wet conditions. Mother Nature has been cranky lately. Feel free to contact me anytime.772-283-1500.

This review is for this week only.

I'm sure the course will drain and become the great tract I remember.

I'm blaming course conditions on mother nature.

This course should have been closed due to unplayable conditions. All balls plugged and lost 4 balls in the fairway....buried somewhere deep right down the middle. All fairways were casual water,

The twosome I started with quit after 2 holes.

I quit after 12. Way too much standing water and saturated tee to green. unmowed tee boxes. topdressed greens. Grounds staff could not drive equipment on course. Even cart paths flooded with puddles.

Only paid $18 through golfnow hotdeal.

Really wanted to play, just could not.

Super should have closed the course.

Yes Mother Nature is in a bad mood!! The golf course is drying up nicely. Lets hope mother nature decides to cooperate. The top dress was light and more of a preventative for the extreme wet conditions and lack of sun our greens are fantastic because of the fantastic Superintendent and his staff. What makes Champions a unique experience with the incredible wildlife and views, at times of extreme rain the preserves are overwhelmed. We hope to see you again so you can experience all that Champions offers..

Bob, unfortunately we have gotten 8 inches of rain in the past 10 days. The Superintendent and his staff worked diligently to prepare the course for play. The staff at Champions let all players know about the wet conditions. A one star rating based on wet conditions caused by Mother Nature? We hope to see you again under dryer conditions so you can enjoy the real beauty of Champions..

Please stop in my office and say hello next time.

Thanks, David

My regular foursome has played here many times and the course is always in great shape. We had some rain the Friday before this round so there were some wet areas but no car path only restrictions etc. due to the rain. The cart paths are an issue and when they are wet with large puddles movement between holes slow down a lot. Not a big deal I am just telling you what we as a foursome think. When we checked in we found out that there was a tournament scheduled with a 9:30 shotgun start. We teed off at 7:10 and never ran into the tournament. We feel that we should be informed about tournaments when booking rounds so we can make a decision if we want to chance the delay or not. We have had some delays at other courses that were very disappointing due to tournaments. All in all a great day of golf at a great course.

We appreciate your 5 Star review. The outing was a very small 40 person shotgun at 9:30 We were not surprised that the outing did not prevent you from enjoying the round. We have extremely professional rangers, starters, assistant pro's, who help maintain the pace of play. Had the outing been any larger and we thought it would have any effect on the days pace of play the tee sheet would be adjusted accordingly and customers informed. The cart paths are being repaired although we just got 5 inches this AM and had to take a break. Again! Been a wet October. Please stop in my office next time you play. We appreciate your comments.
