The course is 2 years old and allows the public to play while they finish the home development. The course was beautiful and well designed. Some of the holes are supper remote and it was so quiet which is not always common. Conditions were superb and the staff was so nice. The only reason I scored the course a 4 on the amenities is because they only have a temporary proshop in a trailor until they complete a permanent club house. Pace of play was really good for how busy they were. They got us out in front of a big great that was appreciated. Great place and glad I played there.

Greens are smooth and fast but not too fast. The green conditions are the best part of playing here. Layout is your basic Florida course, nothing special. The front nine is currently brush and scrub lined which is pretty cool but will be a maze of houses soon, similar to the back nine now. Worth playing but far from spectacular. Currently temporary club house facilities but who cares... much more interested in the course and conditions.

Course was in great shape, greens were perfect! Course is really spread out which makes for some change in scenery. A lot of fun to play! I played as a single and was second tee time so pace of play was around 3 hours. Would highly recommend. Only hit a couple bunkers and they were well groomed Florida white sand as you would expect. Staff was very friendly. Only have a temporary clubhouse.

First time we played this. Will definitely play it again. It is one of the best layouts I've played in the Orlando area.

Couple of observations. The course needs a set of tees between the whites and blues.

The marshal Mr Dolan was terrific.

Make sure you continue to make the course reasonably accessible to tourist players.

New course located in the new part of Champions Gate. No club house yet but the course is amazing! Greens were rolling at a 9.5. Some people may think that's slow but a "real" golfer will understand just how fast those are. Augusta runs at or around 11.5 so these greens are fast! Fairways are plush and the bunkers are pure. And there are a ton of bunkers. It's a course that needs to played a few times in order to really enjoy it.

The course is going to be a country club, so play while you can! Got a hot deal and it was well worth the round plus cart. Friendly staff and drink cart on the course.

Greens were perfect - rolled true and fast 9.5/10 right now. Fairways in good condition and bunkers very nice. A huge 12' gator on one of the back-9 lakes, so beware. I let that monster have my ball even though i could see it right there on the edge of the pond...

Highly recommend!

A bit of confusion at the start with several non foursomes awaiting to tee off . The starter was very helpful and let me start on the back 9 and enjoyed that with three golfers from Toronto .Ont. I then played the front side with three golfers from New Jersey . All in all an enjoyable day thanks to the staff here .

Played as a single. Said the threesome already left they had me paired up with. Slow round as I played behind a 4some playing a scramble so I waited on every shot. Didn't play through. That said the course was in great shape. The greens could have been faster but they too were in great shape. It's not the most scenic course I've played but one of the best maintained. No clubhouse yet, just a trailer with a snack shop and caned drinks. I would play it again.

There was three of us and we played the National course. Got off a bit earlier than our original 8:30am time and we finished in about 3 hours so that was fantastic.

Small greens so coming in with any long irons and sticking the green would be hard.

Only issue we had was the greens were being seeded so it was it hard to putt.

We all would play again.

This course is the centerpiece of a new housing development. The layout is imaginative and surprisingly hilly in spots. Greens are perfect! The rest of course is is in excellent condition. Amenities are not present to a significant degree because clubhouse is under construction. This is still a great experience, better than the courses at the Omni Hotel.

The course is beautiful and well maintained. Greens and fairways are fantastic but the course is way over priced. In addition, plan on spending all day there because it's a 5 hour round. I believe this issue is the tee set up. It goes from 5700 white tees to 6400 blue to 7000 black. Should be 5700 Red, 6100 white, 6400 blue 6700 gold and 7000 black. 5700 is too short for most players and 6400 is too long.
