Great experience

Friendly starter and pro shop staff, course in excellent condition. Although there is construction on a few holes this is typical for Florida communities with golf. Some really fun holes on the back nine, definitely worth playing when in the area.

Great personnel and a well kept course

I played this course on a hot Monday and finished in 3 hours. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The course and greens liked good but the front 9 were a little hard to navigate due to home construction which was not a fault of the course.

Great course

Rather boring front nine, weaving through housing construction site but the back nine is great. All greens are good putting speed but very hard to see grainy turns near the holes.
Staff are great as are the other guests/players.
I'll do it again soon

Definitely on Par

Great course in central Florida. Nice staff. Drainage is absolutely unbelievable we had a 45 minute down pour. They made my group wait 30 minutes to let the course drain and drain it did. Beautiful fairways and even though greens had been aerated they rolled pretty good. My only knock not so much going through the construction but how far it is between the holes. I gave it a four for that. Nonetheless can’t wait to play it again.

Great course!

We were fortunate to find this course at a good price. They had aeriated the greens, but compared to most courses, they still ran.true. Now that I've played here, I wouldn't mind the usual green fees to play it again.

Champions Gate country club

Played at 9.20, course was busy all times until then, already booked. Played as a 3 ball pace of play was good, 4 hrs total, last 3 holes a bit slow, but no complaints. The practice area was excellent, unlimited balls to hit and a very good putting area. The course was in excellent condition, the tee, very large but well maintained. The green nice pace and extremely smooth. For the time of year the the fairways were good. The only slight irritation was the lack of GPS . Overall, a must play course when in Orlando.

Many better options available

CG country club isn’t a bad course but it isn’t really anything special. There are definitely many better options for your money in the area. The course is in good shape and well maintained but that is about the only positive of this place.

Be prepared to play several holes through a construction zone. If construction noise is good for your game, this is the course for you. Otherwise, be aware that the front nine has home construction active on several holes.

Overall, the course doesn’t offer many interesting holes. There are a handful that are interesting but most are pretty forgettable.

Finally, you are not allowed to use the wide open, completely empty range after your round to work out any issues. The vibe of the place is snobby country club without having the facility or history to have anything to be snobby about.

There are so many better options for your money than CGCC at this point. Hard pass - find another option.

A good Surprise

The course is a good layout, pretty wide open, is in great shape right now (though greens will be punched first week of June), would recommend it as a course for all handicaps, and especially if you can get a good deal on Golf Now. Would definitely go back.

Nice day at Championsgate Resort

Terrain en évolution,. le second 9 est d'excellente qualité à tous égards, le premier promet. Malheureusement aujourd'hui le rythme était trop lent et il semble que le préposé au terrain ai manqué de rigueur. Pour le reste une excellente journée de golf.

Under Par

Booked a $39 round with NO taxes. Ended up paying $45 including $3 tax. Round included Complimentary bottle of water and Hand Towels. You guessed it No water or Hand Towels. We were caught in a heavy downpour and had to leave the course when playing the 3rd hole and could have use the hand towel that we didn't get because we were soaked to the skin. The course was OK but there was massive new housing development on the front 9 with sub standard direction signage to guide you round the course from holes 4 to 7. All in all we didn't get value for money which seems to be a recurring theme at Championsgate CC. We've been playing this course on every annual trip to Orlando and we always seem to leave the course with something not quite right. This year my group of 9 golfers have played several courses for the same or less money and felt that our overall experience has been much better.

Great course

Haven't played this course since it first opened and we were pleased it is just as good. Fairways in great condition and greens running true. The fairway bunkers didn't penalise you too much and the green side bunkers were fair and not too difficult to get out of. Once the building work finishes on the front 9 it will be easier to navigate between holes, however we had a few of issues yesterday as the wind had blown over the temporary sign pointing to the next tee and we went the wrong way. Diggers and heavy building machinery did affect going between holes but this was not the fault of the course. Once you have been around the course on once you will know your way easily the following time. We loved our game and will definitely go back. The course personnel were brilliant and very helpful.
I would say the course wouldn't suite all golfing capabilities and is a must if you are planning to visit the area.
