A recent post indicates we are killing the grass this is not true! Another Martin County golf course is doing this not Champions Club.

Played the course today and was so impressed with the greens and the shape of the course overall. Not an easy course but the greens are the best I've played in Stuart. So good it isn't even close. Great friendly staff too! I like that they don't over book like several other courses in Stuart tend to do. The practice facilities have been upgraded since the last time I played here. In fact whoever is running this course now needs to be commended, it's so much better than When I played here 8 years ago. Great job!

I have golfed this course several times and never tire of it. It is well kept, challenging and beautiful. To experience the natural beauty, the nature while challenging yourself to a round of golf gets no better. If you have not golfed here don't cheat yourself. Experience what this gem has to offer. It has a real comfortable, down to earth feel, good fresh food, coolers with beverages to go and great prices. I have take lessons throughout the years but the pro there David Ladd is definitely one of the instructors I have found very easy to gel with when taking a lesson. Helped my game quite a bit. Amazing and Thank you Mr. Ladd

Champions is a challenging, must play course! The greens are gorgeous and well kept. The par 5's are long, well designed with water, mounds on the eighteenth, elevated greens and creative bunkers to say the least. It draws you back. Nature at its finest.

What a great staff!!! Sandwiches are large and fresh.

Best course in town!

Another great round at Champions Club. Great staff as always. Pace of play was good even as full as the course has been this season. Greens are in fantastic shape. Kudos to the crew that keeps this place rocking with the many people who play here. If you haven't played this course you should. It isn't a resort course, but it sure is fun.

Decent course, but highly disorganized with unfriendly/hostile staff. After checking in my tee off time was moved forward, and I was whisked to first tee box to join a 3-some (all nice guys), who had already teed off: no time to loosen up or roll a few practice green puts. Men's room in clubhouse filthy. Plenty of good courses in the area - go there, not here.

From the time we arrived at the 9th tee, it took 30 minutes to complete the hole. Not sure what was going on at the green (dogleg left) but we didn't tee of for 20 minutes. Took 4:45 to play 18 holes. Saw a marshal in a cart once.

Greens are in great shape (and fast). Interesting holes but the pace of play left a bad taste.

Tee time was delayed because allegedly there was a "squeeze" even though we over a week ahead. Pace was slow, just under 5 hours.

On the positive side: great value for a scenic round on a challenging layout. Greens and tee boxes were excellent. A nice variety of holes that were tough but fair. Overall the course was well maintained and ample rakes for the traps. (Could furnish more ball washers)

Increase minutes between t times and eliminate "squeezes" and you have a true Champion.

We enjoyed our round very much. The pace of play was super fast, less than 4 hours to get round in after starting as foursome but finishing as twosome due to person injuring shoulder. The greens were so nice and true, quick and with subtle challenging breaks. Some tee boxes were a bit chewed up but rest of course made up for it. Par 5's were long enough from blues with bunkers protecting greens. Par 3's were long except for one which played 130ish. Lots of marshy areas, which made tee shots a challenge if unfamiliar with course. Overall a very nice track to play and enjoy a great round with friends or family, even if paired to make new friends.
