About Champions Gate Golf Resort, National Course

Champions Gate Golf Resort, is a Resort, 36 hole golf facility located in Orlando, Florida. The facility has two 18-hole golf courses, The National Course and The International Course.

The golf courses at Champions Gate Golf Resort first opened for play in 2000. The courses were designed by Greg Norman.

Champions Gate Golf Resort's National Course and International Course share very few similarities regarding the layout but they both offer a challenging game.

The International Course has a links-style layout, reminiscent of traditional Scottish and Irish golf courses. The course does not mimic the traditions of any other course in the area; it is unique in that it is truly done in a European style.

The National is a traditional American parkland style course, with long, tree-lined fairways leading up to large, very fast greens.

The Champions Gate facility also boasts a convenient digital GPS caddie system that acts as a professional caddie and PGA-style scoring. Champions Gate is only minutes away from popular Orlando resorts and stays open year round. Champions Gate Golf Resort, is the World Headquarters of David Leadbetter Golf Academy.

The National Course plays to 7,128 yards from the Black tees.

Black tees: par-72, 7,128 yards, 75.2 /138

Blue tees: par-72, 6,427 yards, 71.9 /133

White tees: par-72, 5,937 yards, 69.1 /124

Red tees: par-72, 5,150 yards, 65.3 /117

This is a very odd golf course. Maybe with a little less wind, greens that rolled at a consistent speed and dry conditions I'd feel differently. But it's not very pretty and it's hard to see this place as "fun"! Mr. Norman must have given his full attention to the International Course.

I played this last month and it is a very interesting course in that the layout causes the golfer to play the first 8 holes into the prevailing wind. The back nine plays primarily down wind. If you have a stiff wind it can play very tough, little wind and it is a fun course. The green putt great and are very fast. If you are a good putter and have a great short game you will love this course. Plenty of tee boxes for every range of golfer. A must play in the Orlando area.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Ranks with the best in this price level, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

A different layout than the International course, but in a good way. Greens were very slow.
