New course, well designed, very nice greens. Wide fairways, little trouble off the tee. Staff very professional yet very friendly. Property will benefit from the finishing of the club house and other facilities. I will definately play again.

Front 9 seemed very basic. Back 9 had a little more character. Greens were pretty slow and the grass was really hard to read.

Staff was nice.

No drinking water out there.

Nothing special.

Still searching for a reason why ChampionsGate Country Club would name themselves such when ChampionsGate Golf Club is next door (and even visible from some of the front nine).

Front nine is old school Florida and back nine is more modern with loads of housing. Great collection of holes and conditions were top notch.

Perhaps the only downside is the lack of a clubhouse/pro shop both of which are currently in an on-site trailer.

Really nice layout, challenging but fair and good greens. Blended tees play about 6500 yards with some long water carries from the tee, the back is 7000 yards and you better be long to play from there. Club house under construction currently but looks to be a nice facility from the outside. Driving range uses floating balls which I'm not a fan o f(lack of feel) but it offers land based targets which helps a little. I will be back.

Decided to play the country club course over the resort courses solely because they will be going fully private as soon as the club house and course construction is completed. Nonetheless, it was a great decision. The conditions were phenomenal! Greens were tight, fast and true. Plenty of fairway to find even with the presence of strategically places bunkers and traps. Fair amount of water but not overwhelming. (There will be more soon as they were completing the construction of a few more ponds and water hazards). Overall for the money it was well worth it. Plays as well as a $100+ track for around $80. Bottom line, give this place a run before they shut out the public. You will not be disappointed!

Course was in good shape, and is a good, fun layout. Complimentary range balls are a nice touch to get you warmed up before round. No clubhouse yet, but it’s being built and looks nearly finished. Pace of play was good on front nine, but got really slow on back. Would recommend this course.

The front by is played through ‘old Florida’ wild landscape. The back through typical Florida community housing. Fairways wide, yawning but makers, tricky but fair greens.

Off course amenities including small trailer pro shop/clubhouse anxiously await move to new permanent facilities this winter. No drinking water on course!

In central Florida, we're blessed with many excellent golf courses, and this tract is one of my absolute favorites. The course is always in beautiful shape. Nice practice facility (driving range, large putting green). Very friendly staff. DO NOT MISS playing this course while it is still available to the public (it will be going private sometime in the future).

Our only issue on this particular day was a slow foursome in front of us, and they wouldn't let us play through! No marshals on the course, so we had some frustrations waiting for every shot. Even so, our round was 4 hours, 15 minutes.

Having previously played Championsgate National and International, I tried Championsgate CC for the first time. I later learned that CC is not related to the other two. Having played each one once, I definitely like Championsgate CC the best. A wide variety of tee boxes makes it playable for any level of player. Good shots were rewarded, bad shots cost you a stroke, but it was not overly penal. If you like to walk when you play golf, don't go here; there are several long cart rides from green to tee. Very happy I tried this course and I will go back on a future trip.

We got a good rate on Golfnow. We had played this course a couple of years earlier and had enjoyed the experience.The new clubhouse is close to being finished. They were still operating out of a modular type building,. But this did not distract from a good experience. If you are looking for a 19th hole experience this might be an issue. We arrived a couple of hours before our tee time and enjoyed a great practice area. The balls were provided with the green fee. The range is a lake. So you are actually aiming at greens in the lake. They had the largest practice putting and chipping green I have ever seen, which like the actual greens, was in great condition. We played as a two-ball, so we waited some. But overall the pace was good. The course, especially the greens, was in great shape. The staff were all friendly and helpful. This was well worth the 20 minute drive from the Disney area to play a top notch course for a very reasonable fee.

Sir - you either did not play ChampionsGate Country Club or you have an ax to grind with the club as this course is the best conditioned course in Central Florida and the staff is first rate. How do you comment that you enjoyed the course but then rate everything poor and give it one star?

Mr. Scarborough,

Could you please contact me about your review? I want to make sure that you played CGCC and not the other CG courses and if so, I would like to discuss your experience.

Thank you.
