Impeccable

We are Canadian snowbirds who travel to Florida for the past 15 years. This was our first experience at The National & we loved the course and the service. We will be back to play this course. It is a gem.

Omni Resort national thumbs up

Love this course. Very nicely maintained. Gorgeous greens and fairways. Challenging but playable for most amateurs. Definitely some gettable holes, but also plenty to pressure your swing. Play it!

Non typical FL course

Nice interesting holes. Holes 2-18 are set in a large “field - like” area where the holes criss cross each other.. the National course is not as challenging or busy as the resort’s international course. Twosomes allowed which is nice until things get backed up on the back nibe’s three par 3’s.

Exceeded Expectations by far

From the moment you pull up to the valet to the time you leave; the staff really take care of you, your needs, vehicle and equipment.

The practice green is in great shape and I feel it was a true representation of the greens.

Tee boxes were in great shape, the fairways were perfect and the greens were terrific.

I played The National. I'm a high handicap and managed to keep pace. The trouble was mostly avoidable but did find more bunkers than I usually do.

Highly recommended, a great experience.

Wonderful course

This was my second time on this course. Great layout and the conditions were excellent.

Pace of play was a little slow as a single broke off from the group he went out with. Slowed everyone down.

Highly recommend this course, an really any of the CG courses. All are excellent

Excellent Course buy slow play on front 9

The course was laid out well and the greens and fairways were in excellent condition. I think the area has had significant rain recently as the traps were all quite wet (some were actually full of water). The big issue was there was obviously a tournament about 4 groups ahead of us with perhaps 10 foursomes in the tournament. The front 9 was horrendously slow. The front 9 took 2 hours and 45 minutes. At some tee boxes there were 3 groups waiting to tee off. The tournament finished at the 9th hole as the entire group was watching everyone finish. The marshalls came by a number of times on the front 9 but nothing changed. On the back 9 because the tournament had finished we never had to wait to make a shot and we played the back 9 in 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Disappointed

My foursome played at Orange county national, Crooked cat and Panther Lake, The Palm at Disney, Bella Colina and Grand Cypress, we had a great time playing all.. Our biggest let down was Championsgate. Too expensive, play was too slow. the course was in marginal shape and the clubhouse and grounds were full of litter. We were excited to finally get a chance to play this course after all we had heard over the years but it was nothing special at all. Championsgate will not be in our rotation next year.

Loved it!

We really liked this course and everything Champions Gate offers. From the time we arrived until the time we left, the staff was awesome.

The course was very playable with some challenging holes. The greens were soft and fast, just the way I like them.

My wife had a hole-in-one on #6, so of course that made the round even better. We will definitely play here again.

Nick at the pro shop was the only friendly staff member I talked to. The other staff members seemed very snooty. The golf course was beautiful, very challenging but pace of play was slow. Still had a great time golfing. I will be back.

National at Champions Gate

There was no marshal to be seen during our round and we were always waiting to tee off and waiting on the fairways as well.The course conditions were terrible. There were areas on the fairway where the grass was sparse and there were weeds on the second cut of the putting greens. Very disappointed.

Champion’s Gate National

Disappointing course conditions. I was expecting better. There were lots of weeds everywhere and the traps were left ungroomed. It seems that this course has poor drainage which certainly affected play. The course appears to have potential but doesn’t live up to it and left us wondering why we didn’t find it a visually appealing place to place a round of golf (which took too long to play btw).

Nice test of golf

Interesting layout which requires shot making skills. Certainly foolish to use driver on every par 4 as ball must be hit in proper spots to avoid penalties. Greens rolled true but were a bit slower than expected for a course of this caliber. Overall a very enjoyable round.
