Champions Gate Golf Resort.
1400 Masters Blvd
Champions Gate
FL 33896
Tel: 407.787.GOLF (4653)

Champions Gate Golf Resort is the home of two Greg Norman designed courses that feature world class golf, amenities, and service that is second to none in the Orlando area. The facility also boasts world headquarters for the David Leadbetter Golf Academy, and is located only 10 minutes from Disney World Resorts and 15 minutes from Universal Hotel Resorts. This 36-hole layout offers players two distinctly different styles of golf to choose from: The National Course and The International Course. Blending tradition and modern elements to create a unique and dynamic layout.

The "International Course" with its authentic links style golf reminiscent of the great courses of the British Isles. The fairways are long and tight, and the greens are small and quick- forcing players of all calibres to maintain consistency and good putting throughout the round in order to score well. Truly one of the country's most distinctive golf challenges, the international course boasts the highest course rating in the state of Florida at 76.3.

The "National Course" at Champions Gate is equally impressive, albeit more in the traditional mould of courses that Florida has become popular for providing. Although this course does not provide the difficult level of play that the International Course features, golfers of all levels will appreciate the year-round tournament conditions and shot making opportunities the National Course offers. Most often commented on are the memorable par-3 holes, awesome bunkering, and long, tough tee shots that force players to be accurate from the tee-box. This course will give you the opportunity to use every club in the bag.

200 Eagle Ridge Drive
FL 33837
Tel: (863) 424 8688

Par-4 and par-5 holes have generous tee shot landing areas, all of which are plainly visible form the tee. Ridgewood is not one of those courses with "gimmicks" or hidden trouble; just a great layout made for an enjoyable golfing experience.
Ridgewood Lakes Golf and Country Club
Falcons Fire Golf Club.
3200 Seralago Boulevard
FL 34746
Tel: (407) 239 5445

Located on Hwy 192, Falcon's Fire Golf Club is recognized as one of the finest Orlando golf courses.

The Rees Jones Signature Designed championship golf course and the spacious Clubhouse offers guests the highest in service excellence and amenities.

From the player's standpoint, Falcon's Fire features a forgiving front nine with water on only a few holes- rare for a Florida course- however you pay for it on the back nine. The terrain is relatively flat, but there are many mounds that affect your lie regardless of how well the ball is placed in the fairway; and the quick greens are well protected by thick rough and strategically placed bunkering. As mentioned earlier, the back nine is considered more difficult, featuring holes 12 - 18 that wrap around two large lakes; challenging the most skilled player and punishing the errant shot makers. Consistency is the word here, and one must be focused throughout the entire round in order to keep the score low.

The Courses.

The Legacy Course - An Arnold Palmer Signature Design.
Innovatively routed on hilly, roller coaster-like terrain, Palmer's 6,916 yard, par 72 Legacy Course boasts dramatic elevation changes - up to 50 feet in some places - creating a unique variety of risk/reward golf shots. That varied menu of shot-making opportunities is further ensured by six tee locations on each hole, a variety of natural preserve areas, generously wide fairways and strategically placed bunkers across all eighteen holes.

The Tradition Course - A Jack Nicklaus Signature Design.
Unlike the severe hills of the Legacy and Independence courses, this Parkland-style layout is smooth and flowing, with long horizon lines as well as elevated tee boxes and greens. Yet The Tradition can be as deceptive as it is beautiful. Designed to tempt golfers into hitting risky shots with potentially big payoffs, The Tradition challenges the golfer to step up to the ball with a carefully organized series of shots in his or her mind.

The Independence Course - A Tom Watson Signature Design.
Highlighted by fast, firm and wide rolling fairways, a variety of strategically placed bunkers and large greens, the 7,257-yard, par 72 Independence Course is as much about strategy as it is about length. Demanding a well thought out approach from every player regardless of skill level, The Independence puts a premium on a solid short game with spacious green complexes where club selection can vary from putter to lob wedge to three-wood.

Reunion Golf Club
Mystic Dunes Golf Club.
7850 Shadow Tree Lane
FL 34747
Tel: (407) 787 5678

Tour Player and NBC Lead Golf Analyst Gary Koch has created a masterpiece of blended philosophies and unrivalled challenges that is certain to go down as one of the most unique in all of Florida.

This course is unique in the fact that you feel as if you are playing two completely different "nines" during your round. The western nine is pure links, reminiscent of golf courses designs famous in Western Europe, complete with extensive perimeter mounding and large sandy waste areas. It is not overly difficult, but does place a premium on accurate iron play and consistent approach shots to the relatively large greens.

The eastern nine at Mystic Dunes is more traditional, reminding players of classic Carolina-style courses- replete with native wetlands that are bordered by large oak and cypress trees. There is a bit more trouble on this side, however better players will easily navigate the wide fairways and accessible greens that are featured on this nine.
