CHAMPIONSGATE_CoverAgain 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.

CHAMPIONSGATE_02CHAMPIONSGATE_13CHAMPIONSGATE_03They have two 18 holes golf courses with different designs. I book a hot deal teetime via 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!

CHAMPIONSGATE_01CHAMPIONSGATE_05No 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.

CHAMPIONSGATE_04CHAMPIONSGATE_07I 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.

CHAMPIONSGATE_06CHAMPIONSGATE_07CHAMPIONSGATE_09The typical natural beauty of the Orlando area integrated by Greg Norman made this round truly an awesome golf adventure for me. My 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.

CHAMPIONSGATE_11CHAMPIONSGATE_10CHAMPIONSGATE_12The 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.

CHAMPIONSGATE_08I really recommend the National Course but next time I need to play the International Course of ChampionsGate GC.
