2/20/2014 - Great test of golf. It was in great shape. It is by far the harder of the two 18's.
- (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

2/6/2014 - Course in good shape. Golf shop and restaurant personnel very cooperative.

2/6/2014 - Very nice court , I am really enjoy to playing there.
- Carlos (Miami, FL)

1/23/2014 - Excellent condition and very challenging.
- Michael (Allentown, PA)

1/17/2014 - Believe it or not we felt lucky that our day was gray and drizzly, because it added to the Scottish feel. For a demanding course this one is amazingly playable and fun. I will be back. And if the sun is shining, well that's the rub o' the green
- Stephen

1/8/2014 - Bring your 'A' game. This course emphasizes accuracy on approach shots and when you miss, ensuring you miss on the correct side of the green.
- Paul

1/8/2014 - Loved golf course, only would have preferred green speed a little faster. Staff very courteous and helpful.
- Al

1/8/2014 - Very good track, group rated to keep course on the play list for next year.
- Nello (Ajax, CANADA)

1/8/2014 - It was a howling wind, but we played nonetheless. I really enjoyed this course. The staff is tremendous, and the facilities are great. Carts and GPS best I''ve seen. They let us go off of the back nine, which was great because we had it to ourselves. Bring extra balls--yes! Lots of very thick rough. The course was in good shape. The greens were tough. I would play it again.
- Jeff

1/8/2014 - The course was very nice...the staff was very pleasant...overall the experience was great.
- Wayne (Castro Valley, CA)

1/8/2014 - Have played this course several times and I''m pleased to say the standard of maintenance is very good. Two years ago it was well below expectation but now it's great.
- Anthony (Kent, UK)

1/8/2014 - Nice but demanding course, frindly staff.
- Stefan

1/8/2014 - Very challenging course and well maintained. We played both courses now (national in 2012) and (international in2013).
- Michel (Casselman, CANADA)

1/8/2014 - The International is My favorite because it is a links course and the National is much more a traditional Woodsy style course. Both are a Must Play in the Orlando area. Conditions are excellent and the staff was superb.
- H.R (Lakewood Rch, FL)

1/8/2014 - Tough but well maintained course. A true test especially in the wind.

- Stephane (St-hubert, QC CANADA)

9/26/2013 - Excellent shape, very tough course with the rough so thick and tall grass. Stay in the fairway or loose some balls.
- John (Fleming Isle, FL)

9/3/2013 - This was the first time we played this course and it was INCREDIBLE - Greens were excellent, Fairways in beautiful condition. It was a worthwhile experience and we hope to travel back to play the National course.
- Joseph (Palm Harbor, FL)

7/17/2013 - Check in was smooth and efficient and they let me play earlier than my tee time indicated. Greens were well maintained. For the price which includes cart, it is a good value.
- Bahreen (Ka1731 Belait, Brunei Darussalam)

7/6/2013 - The layout of the course was challenging and would diffently play it again. The staff was great and with the help from Shannon from Tee Times USA it was very affordable.

2/1/2013 - Of the 5 courses we played, this was the highest priced. The front of the house service was great. The golf course average. will not go back.
- Evan (Patchogue, NY)

12/22/2012 - This was one of my favorite courses. It was more of a links style course but was fun to play. We ended up playing 36 holes on two courses which was nice. The courses were in great shape and the staff was super....again. I would certainly play here again.
- David (Effingham, IL)

12/20/2012 - Good quality, good shape.
- Serge (Marieville, QC CANADA)

12/14/2012 - Nice Links styled course. Definately worth the price.

9/6/2012 - The International course was nice and challenging. Our foursome had a good time playing here. Just watch out for the high grass in the rough.
- Adrian (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

8/17/2012 - Nice unusual layout, some holes a bit quirky, a fun course.
- Mark (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

7/23/2012 - Rough is penalizing for average/slightly above player. Conditions were good.
- (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

6/8/2012 - Play International in the morning if possible - its more wide open and longer than National and therefore, warmer and wears you out. Nice course.
- Mike (Burlington, IA)

5/29/2012 - Excellent service from all staff involved. The course itself was in great condition and very challenging.
- James Black (Kilmarnock Ka3 1tu, UNITED KINGDOM)

5/11/2012 - Course in excellent condition, tough with strong winds on day we played. Would play again.
- Clive (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

5/10/2012 - The golf was in excellent shape and was a big challenge in that windy day.
- Joanne (Lachine, QC CANADA)

5/1/2012 - Very nice course. It was awful windy the day we played, and made things not so enjoyable. Would like to play again on a little better day.
- Dustin Theiss (Shelbyville, IL)

4/26/2012 - Course was in average shape. We had a nice day.
- John (Plainfield, IN)

4/26/2012 - Course was in fantastic shape! Greens were fast and true. Staff was great as we played the national course the day before and found we liked the national course better. Just a little more interesting. The lack of trees on the course left it a little less appealing then the other course, but was in great shape . Would play it again. The staff was fantastic the two days we played there.
- Mike (Severna Park, MD)

4/23/2012 - Greens and Fairways have been in a real good condition. It was very nice, to play this course. And we played alone, so they don't paired us up ... (it was Easter-time ...)! I'll play this course next Orlando-trip again.
- Sabine (8020 Graz, AUSTRIA)

4/9/2012 - Great course and excellent customer service. Well worth the price.
- Charles Rowan (Hazel Crest, IL)

3/30/2012 - Top notch facility has gone cheap in the clubhouse. Used to have classy engraved gold tees, now have only basic wooden tees on carts. A shame. Otherwise, courses fun to play. Wide open on tee shots. Hot air balloons come overhead in early AM.
- John (Rego Park, NY)

3/29/2012 - SUPER SUPER SUPER EXPERIENCE THANKS TO YOU FOR OUR WHOLE TRIP WE EASILY DECIDED IT WAS OUR BEST EVER AND WE HAVE HAD SOME GOOD ONES
- Mike (Cookeville, TN)

3/16/2012 - Played this challenging links style course in high winds which, fortunately, subsided by the end of the round. Fast greens in good condition. Fine condition overall but windy conditions required A game.
- Ronald (Boston, MA)

3/16/2012 - First time playing the international course. Very nice course I would play it again.
- Anthony (Troy, NY)

3/16/2012 - Great course. Conditions were very good. Nice facility with practice area, 36 holes, and great food.
- Douglas (Bellingham, MA)

3/15/2012 - A must play for a Vista to the Kissimmee area.
- Jeff (Holland, MI)

3/12/2012 - Two good courses. We enjoyed the National better than International. Top notch facility and service.
- Hugh Jazz (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

3/6/2012 - Good golf course and the staff has always gone out of their way to make our 36 holes go smoothly. Great location to where we stayed.
- Skip (Wentzville, MO)

3/5/2012 - We played the International course in the morning and the National course in the afternoon. The International course was in great condition and very challenging. Wonderful wild life all over the course. The greens were the best i have ever played on. The National course was also in great condition yet a completely different style of course. Bring a shovel with you, I have never seen so much sand. The service in the morning at Champions gate was excellent. Sadly that changed for the afternoon round. The pace of play slowed down quite a bit. There was some sort of convention there and most of the staff, not all, seemed a little rude. The was a very very limited selection of refreshments with the cart girl on the National course and that is your only option because the club house is far from the course. All and all a nice place. Don't let my bad experience deter you, but i will not be going back there.
- Mark (North Ridgeville, OH)

2/23/2012 - The National course is a beautiful course and a tremendous test of golf. The greens are small and all slope away so pin point approach shots are required. An excellent course but in my opinion, a little over priced.
- Aaron (Riverview, NB CANADA)

2/2/2012 - Outstanding courses in perfect condition, we will play you again. One of our favorite on our visit.
- Eugene ()

2/2/2012 - Nicest we played out of all of them. Would slpurge and play again with money saved by playing Royal St.Cloud.
- Ron (Ottawa, IL)

2/2/2012 - Both ChampionsGate courses are very nice.
- Robert (Gallatin, TN)

12/2/2011 - This course will challenge every golfer. No trees but lots of sand. Conditions were above exceptional. If you want a links challenge, book a tee time here.
- Mike (St. John'S, NL CANADA)

12/1/2011 - This was the third course we played on our trip. What a great golf course . Layout , greens , service , we played twice that day. Awesome value for 2 rounds and top notch facility.
- David (Hammonds Plains, NS CANADA.)

10/31/2011 - Courses were great.
- John (Dexter, MI)

10/20/2011 - Excelent links course, very tough. We had a wonderfull time, the course was in tip top shape. Good price value, even though this was one of the most expensive courses we played.
- Mateo (Quito, ECUADOR)

10/14/2011 - As expected totally different layout from other courses played. Nice to have change away from tree/water lined fairways to more undulating feel, definitely not like any parkland course in area. What a great course to finish off golf trip on. The greens were in the best condition of all courses I have played this year.
- Allan (KY1 12PQ Rosyth, UNITED KINGDOM)

7/6/2011 - Loved the course. As a big fan of links courses, I loved the wide open feel of it. Each hole was well conceived. Good mix, went through my whole bag. We played in about 3.5 hours as it was empty in front of us. I would definitely play it again.
- Michael (Malvern, PA)

6/1/2011 - Both 36 hole courses were great. Would play either course again and with all day green fees you might get to play 54 holes in one day.
- David (Edmond, OK)

5/23/2011 - Great course! It is a must play if you are in the area. I would recommend to anyone. 10 out of 10.
- Ian (London, UK)

5/6/2011 - Two distinctive courses in good shape. Very enjoyable
experience.
- Crawford (Barrie, ON CANADA)

4/22/2011 - A bad weather day but a great course. We will keep it on our play list.
- Frank (Sylvania, OH)

4/12/2011 - Challenging course with large waste bunkers. It is a fair course for all levels of golfers.
- Richard

4/10/2011 - The International course I thought was a little hard
to play even from the whites. The greens were in great condition, fairways good and the tees were in pretty good shape. The clubhouse has a lot of history. When the wind blows, which it did, it's a bear. We thought it was a pro course.
- Rick (Cherry Hill, NJ)

3/27/2011 - This was my favorite course of the ten or so that I have played in the Orlando area. I liked this course much more than the Grand Cypress New course (which is also a links course). The conditions were excellent. The clubhouse is awesome and the staff are all very friendly.
- Russell (Burin Bay Arm, NL CANADA)

3/12/2011 - One of the finest courses in all of Florida. Spectaticular service from the entire staff. We were treated like no other course we have played in Florida.
- Tom (Whitmore Lake, MI)

3/4/2011 - Had a good time and the staff is always very helpful. Had a half hour fog delay but still got 28 players through 36 holes with no problem.
- Skip (Wentzville, MO)

2/19/2011 - A great facility and a great staff. Both courses on the compound are terrific, were in perfect shape and had a lot to offer. If you play one... you're going to insist on playing the other. (FYI... If you play the courses on consecutive days... they generally offer to store the clubs for you.)
- Dean (Hanson, MA)

2/18/2011 - Outstanding facility. Great course that is fun to play.
- John (Waupun, WI)

2/18/2011 - Enjoyed the course. Great layout. Slowest greens we played all week but overall a good course and very reasonably priced.
- Steve (Rochester, MN)

2/18/2011 - The course was fantastic - the links course (the international) brought me to my knees but I enjoyed every moment of it. The national course was beautiful.
- Geoffrey (Fall River, MA)

2/3/2011 - A lot of fun, tough course's
- Gerald (Raytown, MO)
