Again nice memories of a nice course. I expected nothing about it but ChampionsGate GC was such a surprise. I played there during my stay in Orlando for the PGA Show.
They have two 18 holes golf courses with different designs. I book a hot deal teetime via Golfnow.com at the National Course which was a typical Orlando parkland course designed by Greg Norman. Arriving there I was stoked again how uncomplicated it is to play golf in the US. You need a bag and a teatime, thats it!
No complicated rules and no memberships required to swing a club, like over here in Germany.
I was on my own and just started my round with a good drive. After three holes I recognized that the National Course of ChampionsGate GC will make me happy this day.
I was in a good golfing mood and the conditions of the greens an the design of the National Course really suit my game. I also loved the mix of woodlands, wetlands and former orange groves, the many bunkers and lush fairways.
The typical natural beauty of the Orlando area integrated by Greg Norman made this round truly an awesome golf adventure for me. My Goodsundays.com signature was hole no.14. A nice mid length par 3 with 171 yards from blue. A tee shot over some mangroves on a green surrounded by bunkers and old trees. A typical hole for this course.
The par 72 ChampionsGate GC National Golf Course measures 7,128 yards from the blacks and an impressive rating of 75,2 and a slope of 138. In my case blue tees, 6427 yards with the slope of 133.
I really recommend the National Course but next time I need to play the International Course of ChampionsGate GC.
