The course was excellent. Nice fairways, greens, and overall a very pleasant round.

The bathrooms, however were disgusting - especially the small rest room at hole #10. First class place with no attention to bathrooms. In spite of that, worth the trip.

This is our first time playing the champions gate international course. The layout and course condition are A plus!! The starter Gene was welcoming and full of great information. The staff overall was amazing. The grounds crew is working diligently to repair some damage from hurricane Irma. Would definitely play this again. HOTDEAL from Golfnow!

I love this course. It is one of my all time favorite layouts. I was a bit disappointed in the conditions though. Apparently the course has not recovered from the hurricane. There were multiple areas the damaged due to water. The greens were amazing. I was told they were new last year. The course can be as challenging as you like. There are lots of opportunities for risk reward. It was really windy the afternoon that I played which increased the challenge as there are very few tress on the course. The pace of play on a Friday afternoon was 4:20 so pretty good. This is a must play course.

This was a featureless, flat, poorly maintained Florida golf course. Nothing memorable at all. The 8th hole in unplayable from 150 yards in and is unsafe. Clearly the hurricane was to blame for some of the condition but frankly this was not what I’ve come to expect in Florida.

For the price, the course should be rated average. It's since layout somewhat challenging but the greens were fast but they had lots of damages. The ball didn't roll that well. Fairways were fine but the t-box was unpredictable.

Overall good fun but an average course for the price.

This was an outstanding golf course and fantastic experience from arriving at Champions Gate to leaving. The golf course was stunning a true gem; the welcome and service on point and the service in the course and in the 19th after first class. Our last day playing golf and probably the best. Cant wait to go back and play again here in the future.

I turned up in the State looking for a game

Couldn't believe the bargain prices

$25 including a meal

More water than I'd seen here before after the storms but course showed only a few signs of the heavy rain they had experie over the last few weeks

Couldn't fault the hospitality and greens were much faster than anticipated given all the rain
