Unfortunately as of 9/24/17 there was still a lot of water on the course. The 8th hole is still somewhat under water. And Golf Now didn't say the driving range was closed. But to say something good, the greens are great.

This was my first time playing either course @ Champions Gate. I had a solo 1:00 tee time. I was greeted very politely by the gentlemen in the pro shop and was told my bag had been taken down to the starter and put on a cart. Fast service was a plus. The course was slow for a Sunday which was I was surprised. I fully planned on being put in a group which was fine. The starter told me that the course was pretty empty and that I could tee off whenever I was ready. I was able to go out 30 minutes early. Another plus. When I teed off, I felt like I had the course to my self! I really enjoyed the layout of the course. The conditions were great considering that it was hit hard by Irma. Only two holes (6 and 8) had a lot of standing water and were not draining real fast. No problem. I really enjoyed the back nine. I like the strategic dog legs that were found on the back side. Thanks for a very enjoyable round. I will be back!

With the impendingg Hurricane due to come through on the weekend, I wanted to get in a quick round. Found at great deal on GolfNow to play this track and boy did I get my money's worth. The course was in great shape and there was no one out there. The staff inside was very nice and helpful. If you haven't played this course yet, I would recommend it over the national. The biggest emphasis on this course is to hit the fairway. You pay a hefty cost when you miss as the rough is very lush.

Course was very pure. Buddy and I play a different course in Orlando every weekend and these greens were some of the best greens we have played on, very quick and smooth. Great layout, some challenging holes and some holes you can go after. 2 some teed off early am and played in 3 hr 20 min. Will definitely be back to play again. Only main complaint was the starter. He pretty much laughed at us when we told him we were playing the blue tees (6700 yards, not even the tips). Without asking us what we normally shoot or normally play from, he was very rude.

Champions Gate is a really amazing facility. Courses are always in incredible condition and the staff is great. Personally, I'm really not a big fan of the International course. On 4, 6, 7 and 10 you either have to be dead on with driver, or you have to lay up. It was tough getting into much of a rhythm. The course to me seems like a mix and match of 18 holes they didn't include on the National or Country Club courses. With that being said, the course was still in impeccable shape and the staff was great, as always. I highly recommend Champions Gate, but I feel that the International course is the lesser of the 3 options.

Play this course! Definitely worth the time to experience the beauty and challenge of a premier golf course. The staff is most accommodating with Eric securing your clubs upon arrival, the pro shop being very pleasant and making you feel welcomed, your clubs being on the cart as you prepare to hit the links, small towels on the cart for use, cups, ice and water prior to embarking and the starter at number one tee to inform you of any course issues and answer any questions. The course was immaculate and well manicured. Thoroughly enjoyed the layout of the course and look forward to returning.
