We continue to book here because the course layouts are nice. The International is more challenging than the National. What's even more challenging is the pace of play, or rather the lack of rangers to move slow groups along. Such was the case today. We skipped the 10th hole so we could jump ahead of the snail pace group ahead of us and the course was wide open. We had called the pro shop from the course as we usually do when its unreasonably slow and we got the same result we normally do, no rangers ever come by to acknowledge our call or to move the slow group along. So come here to play but be prepared for slow pace and disrespectful response when asking for ranger help.

This track was in great shape. The greens were fantastic. The International course is links style. The day we were playing it was a cool 40 degrees with winds in the 10 to 15 mph range. We had a threesome of an A class player and 2 B class players. Everyone shot well over Their cap. This course as fair but difficult. If you want long and narrow this is your course.

4 of us turned up to play after a bad experience last time we played here but thought we would give it another chance BIG mistake.

We opted to play the international as the national was is in a terrible state when we played a year ago but to be honest this was not a lot better with patchy fairways and greens and on top of that th GPS on Cart stopped working so had no distance to greens or pins.

When put the the guy in the pro shop he just shrugged his shoulders so not a lot of help there as he said we had a reduced rate as it was twilight and to my amazement he stated that it’s usually over a hundred dollars WOW.

The experience was so bad I had my 1st ever hole in one on the 5th and gave up on the 7th.

Avoid this place at all costs.

Disappointed that the rate offered to guests at the hotel were much more expensive than those available to the general public by golf now and other websites.

Had the opportunity to play Champions Gate over the holiday break and it was in pristine condition. I have played this course many times and have always enjoyed it, especially when I can get it on GolfNow.com for $51.00 per player @ 9 am. Clubhouse and staff are also top notch. Never disappoints!
