The course was in excellent shape and the greens were near perfect. Would highly recommend playing although a little pricey. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had fun, but the foursome in front of us were very slow leading to an almost 5 hour round. That was a negative. Overall a good round............

Mission inn remains a great destination for golf. The layout is challenging, the course is well conditioned and the setting is pristine. Saw 2 eagles there during the round.

The greens are a challenge with several undulations. Speed is excellent.

A treat to play.

Finally was able to play several other area courses

(Deer Island, Red Tail, Arlington) to make a comparison. Both Mission Inn courses were the BEST. High marks in every category. Don't leave Florida without playing here at Mission Inn. The people are top notch and the experience was worth every dollar. Did I mention the world famous bakery just down the road!

We golfed on Sunday Feb. 19/17, 12:01 and arrived an hour early but noticed no none had teed off for the first fifteen minutes so asked the starter if we could tee off and he said no there was a shotgun, after watching a couple of singles tee off in the next 15 min. he said we had to go off as a foursome (no shotgun). In addition

the people at the registration desk assured us there was a cart girl every few holes but there wasn't one the whole way and the course didn't return to the clubhouse at nine.

They are not truthful.

My husband and I, along with another couple, were enroute to south Florida and wanted to break up our trip. We booked a golf package at Mission Inn Resort although we knew very little about the courses. We played both El Campeon and Las Colinas. El Campeon was our favorite, a classic, lush course with a very fair layout and great conditions. We thought Las Caolinas was fun but not in as superb shape as El Campeon. We will certainly go back to Mission Inn Resort...this was a great experience for all of us!

We really enjoyed our round. The course has many different types of holes, some long, some short, some wide open and some tight. Overall, the green speed was slow however. The par 3's are long from the white tees, two of them over 180 yards. We played Super Bowl Sunday so we were never held up at all.
