Good Course, High Price for Conditions

Course was in good shape, for the price, but played better this week for about $65, in Orlando and Kissemmee... The drink cart was extremely expensive.

International Course Very Nice Course to play

Booked the course through golfnow.com and when my wife and I arrived, the valet took our clubs and parked our vehicle. No problems checking in, and the price includes unlimited golf balls at their driving range. The starter explained everything about the course, including some very good advise. The course is very plush, and the greens rolled true. We had nobody in front of us all 18 holes. There are plenty (like quite a few) sand traps located everywhere. Several holes have ponds also. If I had any complaint, it would be that the course has NO womans tees. My wife is an average golfer, and thought that the forward tees at 5300 yards was a little long. Yes we would play this course again.

Very nice course with lots of challenges. Greens were in great shape and rest of course was also well manicured. Only problem was the shortage of rakes for sand traps.

Terrible in every regard

Wow has this facility taken a turn for the worse. Course conditions were very rough and our jpainfully slow 5+ hours round was so bad, I felt compelled to try to save other Orlando visitors our experiences. International course features a nice layout and challenging for all skill levels but just deplorable conditions. Too many great options to even consider this for an Orlando golf trip. If you’re staying at the Omni, you’ll still want to consider traveling off site.

Not my favorite

A little chaotic. Couldn’t find first hole and ten was a fiasco with carts driving from nine people yelling and staff driving around all while trying to tee off.

Superb Greens

Really nice course and cool layout. Pretty forgiving off the tee but you better bring your A-game around the greens cause chipping is a challenge. The greens were rolling perfectly, very true and fast but also fair.

Always a pleasure to play there

Championsgate International is a true test of golf. I always say that holes 6 through 8 are the "Amen Corner" of that course. Great condition throughout. Only complaint is that there was a slow foursome in front of us, and no ranger to be found. Hence, we were not able to finish our round before dark.

Helpful Staff

Staff in pro shop and at carts were very friendly. We were signed up to play with another twosome we didn’t know and the starter allowed them to play alone, so we were usually waiting at every hole. Course was in good shape and pleasantly challenging for both my husband and myself!

This course was in excellent condition, you should add this course to your list to play

If you are up to the challenge you should play here. Tough but fair. Hitting areas are open most of the time but there are some narrow fairways and plent of sand and water hazards to watch out for. Carts have gps which is a nice addition to the round.

My New favourite Orlando Golf Course

Have played the National course which is great but International for first time today. Conditions are excellent. Layout is really interesting. I’m a middle of the road older white tee guy. Played with a college player and a older couple, decent players from Sweden. Course was a great challenge for all as we played 3 different tee boxes. Can’t wait to give it another try.

Fun Links in Florida close to Disney

I played here on a trip to Disney with my wife. So getting out early was important as I wanted to play at a reasonable pace in order to get back to Disney Springs for the day. Let's say I was more than lucky in terms of pace of play. The starter was great and asked if I want to go by myself or with the twosome behind me. Since they weren't split tee I chose to play on my own and finished the entire round in 2.5 hours!!!

I played quick but the fairness of the golf course's layout was helpful with the pace but it was still challenging. There is trouble of the tee but the fairways are wide and inviting. Other than maybe two holes you really have to miss poorly to be in trouble off the tee. It was a windy overcast day so with it being a links style have to account for that most of the round. Greens were in perfect shape not super fast but they were firm and rolled out well.

The course is very picturesque and plenty of wildlife to see throughout the round. My favorite two holes on the course are probably the Par 5 18th coming down the fairway looking at the Omni is very cool look. And the other is the 12th Hole which is a drive-able par 4 if you are willing to be aggressive and cut the corner on the left side.

Aside from a fast pace and that I played well the final reason I loved this course was the service. As you enter a valet service takes both your car and you golf bag. The staff from the bag drop to the pro shop to the starters are extremely friendly and hospitable. It was also worth the money from the conditions, the layout and the staff.

I will definitely be back!
