Default Re: orlando golf

unfortunately its my last night here, and coming back to the cold. weather has been incredible! and so has the golf! here are the courses i've played, in order of preferance:

grand cypress n/s/e
grand cypress new course
lpga international hills course
orange county national panther lake
championsgate country club

golf has been expensive here in orlando, but deals can be found on golfnow. highly recommend the top 4 on the list.. championsgate cc was okay but at least the price was fair.

already looking forward to my next trip here!

El Campeon was a real fun track at Mission, but I didn't really enjoy the other course up there. And the drive from Orlando is a bit of a drag.

I have really enjoyed the Grand Cypress tracks. The "New Course" is a ton of fun with double Fairways and greens. On the other side I have only played the North/South and enjoyed them. There was some construction when I was last there but that was 2 years ago, and only impacted the routing of one or two holes.

Huge difference in value between the two, Mission seems like its pretty cheap by Orlando standards....

I'm sure it is. It's a good 45 minutes to get to from International drive. Grand Cypress is very close.

Mission is a fun place but El Campeon is way more interesting course than the other. We did the drive out to Mission twice, the second time was because we enjoyed El Campeon as much as we did. But haven't been back. The second time the courses were not in as great shape. Ponds were very dry and parts of course were also very dry. El Campeon is very different from most golf you'll find in Orlando..

I think Grand Cypress has held a few LPGA Year End Championships there so there is probably a bit more Mystique. Its a very flat layout on both courses. But as I mentioned before the "New Course" is pretty neat. Last time we were there, we took our dads with us and it was a must play because of the layout.

Having been to Orlando as much as I have and having been to both facilitiesI would probably pick Grand Cypress. but that's My opinion and we all know about those!
