Mission Inn, El Campeon

Always a pleasure playing “Camp”. It’s a great layout that is very challenging. Condition is excellent. Sort of a hidden gem as it’s nearly an hour drive from the Amusements and many vacationers overlook it. It’s well worth the drive. Highly recommended
There is also a second course named Los Collinas (sp) which is nice but play El Campeon over it.

Losing the will to live

First 10holes took 3 hours, overall just over 5 hours, kills any enjoyment when you are waiting to play every shot

After 7 holes the ranger appeared and did speak to the gents four two ahead of us who had lost over a hole on the group in front of them. He spoke politely to them to little effect, they put 6 balls in the water at the next hole a par 3. They surely should have been told to miss the next hole to catch up as they were holding up the whole course

It was not a cheap round so we won’t be back until we can see from the reviews that they are improving the pace of play

Extremely slow

Pace of play was terrible with sometimes 3 groups waiting on the tee box. No ranger in sight throughout the entire round. Lots of retirees out for a nice casual day with no interest in keeping up pace.

Course is nice with some nice elevation changes but they must work on pace.

Not worth returning with so many other great courses to play in the area

Best Orlando Course played so far

Great layout and good condition (some sand on greens but not an issue). Played a different course for the last 2 weeks and I rate this one the best so far. No fairway lined villas, not flat and uninteresting, real test so bring your A game from the Blues. Definitely recommend and worth the drive. Played ChampionsGate the day before and no contest!

Had to request a refund and wasted my time

I couldn’t play because they had no golf carts. I waited 30 minutes after my tee time and they still had no carts available. They let many people who played early replay again, with no regard for players who had pm tee times.
I wasted 2 hours of my day going out there for nothing.
You shouldn’t advertise tee times on Golfnow if you can’t honor them.

Slow play. No golf carts

When I get there from my starting time they were out of college golf carts. When we got on the course the round took over five hours. Course was in OK condition but for me there was way too much elevation change. Hitting up a hill at a elevated green was difficult. Play was way too slow. Course was not managed well.

Strategic

Good condition for winter. Course was very challenging and requires perfect placement on approach. Played early morning 730ish and ground crews where working on daily duties with little to no golf course etiquette. Have played many cheaper courses and more expensive and always crews respect your play and here none. Start and run machines will teeing off and while playing the greens. Would not have expected this every on a course of this caliber.

This course is just beautiful. Everyone who loves golf should play this course. The change in elevation is amazing for Florida.

Bring your A game

Played El Campeon for the first time. Very challenging layout. Prior course knowledge would really help. Conditions were excellent. Pace of play was a bit slow. 5. Hrs. Difficulty of the layout has something to do with that. Nice elevation changes along with plenty of water and island greens. Speed of greens was nice. Plenty of cart service during play. When I return to Florida in a few months Mission Inn a definite stop. Both courses are great.

Nice layout but slow play

Very nice course, but the pace of play really bogs down on the back on the two times I have played it. Also cheap that they charge u for range balls. Layout is great. Be on your game.

Great Place--Worth the $$--Will Play Here Again

Excellent course that's worth the typical GolfNow rates. Challenging course, with very challenging greens; however it's playable and fair. Be careful about selecting tees--this course is not about how far you hit it. Angles and carries are vitally important. I would also advise some type of app that lets you see the layouts and distances to bunkers. I recommend this course for solid players who want to get a little away from the Orlando crowds. Pace was 4 to 4:10 on a holiday.

Enjoy the course, play of play is dreadful

I enjoy the layout of El Campeon but that doesnt mean I want to enjoy spending 4 hrs and 45 mins sitting around on it waiting. This is a difficult golf course probably not suited for the high handicapper. We did not see a marshal our entire round on a Saturday afternoon. Greens were in good condition and enjoy the look of the course that isn't your typical flat Florida golf.
