After playing Champions Gate Country Club, I doubt we'll find a course that matches up. Staff was SUPER and course was in immaculate shape. Unfortunately, pace of play was slow but that was only because some guys refuse to play from the tees that fit their game.

The layout has very long distances between holes. Fantastic greens, good fairways and very nice bunkers.

I would recommend it if the pace of play was reasonable, but at over 5 hours it defiantly was not.

No on course staff, gas carts.

I really like this course. It has a good layout and it is in great shape. There is no comparison between this course and the ChampionsGate National and International courses, as this course is much, much better. The only cons are the clubhouse (it is essentially a construction trailer) and the distance between some of the holes on the front 9. I recommend switching the front 9 and the back 9 because there is no development on the back 9, so it is a much better experience.

I played here because of several recommendations. Overall, a really nice gold course. The layout was good, the course conditions were good, and the greens were some of the best I have putted in the Orlando area. A nice golf course.

This course is a work-in-progress and is not worth the $140 for two players at this time. When the course is completed, it may well be worth that price.

Fairly new facility adjacent to the long established Championsgate Resort. Conditions were very good. The front nine is isolated and abuts orange fields and one of the resort courses. The back nine however is surrounded by housing on every hole. Because of this the front and back nine feel completely different even though the overall design of the course mostly carries over. I played on a windy day, which made the open front nine more difficult. Nice practice facilities. No fancy clubhouse, just a mobile office. You won't be disappointed by the conditions.

Thought at first the golf club was linked with the other Champions Gate, but that was not the case.

Found it easy to book a tee time with GolfNow.com. at a very competitive rate. This golf course is going to be expensive to play when the club house and real estate is complete.

Excellent golf course to play our four ball really enjoyed the experience and we are looking forward to playing it next year. Lots of well designed holes for all standards of golfers.

Look forward to searching GolfNow for good deals also in UK.

This is my third time playing the course and it gets better every time! I was a single and got paired up with a super-nice family on vacation from the UK, the company was fantastic and so was the weather. Warning - this course can be a beast if you don't play it from the proper tees! I play to about a 5 handicap and can put it out there pretty far, but the gold tees (tips) were almost too much...only played them because the Brits were and I didn't want to back down! There are several forced carries of well over 230 yards and some fairly long approach shots - the greens hold the ball well, but if you are above the hole you need to be very careful with your putts! The greens were running about 11 on the day I played and seemed to have a lot of break in them - fair, but somewhat difficult. Overall this is a great track with a friendly staff. No clubhouse yet, but don't let this deter you from playing here. Liked it better than OCN and all of the resort courses - cant wait to play it again!

The course amenities are lacking. The temporary clubhouse is fine but has limited food service. There was also limited water for drinking available on the course. Otherwise I recommended this course.

This is my home course. Several of us often joke how we enjoy this course more than the resort courses. The layout is better and the course is in MUCH better shape. The locals play here and prefer to play this course. That is all that needs to be said!
