Difficult

If you are an average golfer in Florida for some fun this may not be your course. It is work. Though I normally love fast greens, these are lightning fast and I thought too fast for a links course. The staff was great but when I got to the restaurant after the front there was no one to serve me. And, of course, there was s no time to look for someone. It was a great day but just beware there will be some pain out there.

4.6 stars

In my opinion, to get a 5 star review, everything has to be perfect. That being said, this course is closer to 5 stars then 4. I played alone and when I reached the starter, I think it was Daryl, tried to move me around to avoid a group of 5 going off in front of me. 5+ stars for him.

The pace was good. Greens very fast. Well worth the cost of the deal from GolfNow.

A Fantastic Orlando Golf Course

The International Course at Champion's Gate is probably the best Orlando Course going. It's sister course the National is no slouch either as we played both on the same day. A great 36 hole day! The fairways are excellent and the greens are fast and true! A pleasure to play and highly recommended!

Enjoyable afternoon on the links

We initially met the club attendants as we pulled up...they we gracious and efficient.

Clubhiuse folk were attentive, friendly and efficient. Checked in made arrangements and move on to play.

Starter was friendly and curtious and got is started quickly and without fan fare.

International was in good shape with well kept greens.

Couple of large bunkers were under repair but course was in terrific condition. Greens were well kept and smooth.

Fairways were terrific with very playable lies.

Played in just over 4 hours so speed of play was very acceptable...great afternoon of golf.

A Links Delight

We played the International Course and everything about our experience was first class except for the pace of play. This is a high-class facility, worth the drive of a few minutes from the Disney World area. They have a great practice facility, mostly friendly staff and a beautiful pro shop/restaurant area. We chose the International Course because of its links features and by and large, it lived up to its billing. Some holes do incorporate ponds, particularly on the back nine, which is not true Scottish links golf. The course was in great shape, the greens medium fast, and the tee boxes lush. We would have liked a more informative GPS; you touched the screen to get a distance to a far trap and it struggled to help. But this is a challenging but fair course with very few tricked-up holes. It is also beautiful with lots of wild life and well-groomed natural areas. We played on a fairly slow day but that was no excuse for failing to have a marshal on the course. As a result, a threesome backed up the course badly on the back nine, making the round a lot longer than necessary. Even with that, we still had a great experience and definitely will play the course again.

First Timer

My wife and I played Champions Gate International for the first. Always wanted to play and glad I did. The course was wet so therefore no roll. I played the white tees and my wife played the foward tees. The course layout at times were tough to determine which way the holes went. The ladies tees were to tough for a high handicap lady. Wildlife was abundant! You would have to play this course a couple of times to know your sight lines and get over the visual intimidation factor involved with the intentions of the course architect. But by all means put Champions gate on your list of courses to play. Staff was very genuine indeed!

We have played the National several times and always enjoyed it. First time playing the International and absolutely loved it. The greens are huge and roll fast but true, while still holding your approach shot. Best to practice putt a little before playing. Only problem was the 8th hole with the standing water in several spots on the fairway, but didn't hit any of them, lol. Will certainlt be back to plat it again.

Wow

Every time I drove past Champions Gate as a kid, I wanted to play here. Always thinking it was out of my budget, well I got the chance today and wow. The international course is not for the faint of heart. Course provided some humbling challenges but was overall fantastic. Staff was world class, they even wiped my clubs off after play. I will definitely go back!

Great layout, pace of play not so great.

Overall the day was fantastic, pace of play was not an issue on the front 9. After the turn however it backed up really bad, where you could see it for a few tee boxes..no Marshall on a busy day. Staff is amazing, would have been nice to know about the water logged bunkers and standing water throughout the course. No advisory posted . The weather was beautiful though.

Awesome, but wet

This is a great track. The greens were in fabulous shape but the water filled typical sand traps. not sure, perhaps surrounding area construction may be impeding upon the drainage system but otherwise a nice round.
