Champions Gate Course Review

ChampionsGate Golf Club features two premier 18-hole championship golf courses designed by accomplished architect and golfer, Greg Norman. This premier golf club features an impressive clubhouse, excellent service, and near perfect conditions, some demanding holes, and lots of bunkers to test your game.

The International course is 7,363 yards from the tips and has one of the highest course rating in Florida - boasting a challenging 76.3 and a slope of 143. This 18 has the look and feel of a links-style layout in the British Isles except for the addition of water hazards.

Texas Outside North Course Rating 7.5

Grand Cypress North Course Review

Texas Outside South Course Rating 9.3

Grand Cypress South Course Review

With 27 holes, the Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed North, South, and East Nines provide three distinctly unique 18-hole masterpieces.The North, South, and East Nines offer a variety of mental and physical stimuli that test accuracy rather than strength and distance. The original North-South combination, marked by sharply ledged fairways, tall shaggy mounds, and plateau greens perched above water or sand, is a demanding, target-style test. The sportier, more wooded East Nine is more generous, with less bunkering (particularly in front of the greens) allowing for more run-up shots. Each combination provides a distinctive playing experience, which will challenge even the best of golfers.

Grande Pines Golf Course


Grande Pines Golf Club

Orlando, FL

Texas Outside Rating 9.0

In partnership with six-time major champion Nick Faldo, Smyers created each hole of Grande Pines Golf Club to be a strategic challenge that will bring out the best in each player's game. Nestled among lakes, tall pines, oaks and palms, Grande Pines Golf Club peacefully coexists with the native flora and wetlands.

Texas Outside Rating 9.3

Review of The Watson Course

One of the great things about staying at the outstanding Reunion Resort is you can play an Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, and Tom Watson course - each of which is fantastic with it's own unique personality and characteristics. The Watson Course offers undulating terrain highlighted by fast and firm wide rolling fairways with elevation changes as much as 45 feet from tee to green.

Reunion, FL

Texas Outside Rating 9.0

Review of The Palmer Course

Both challenging and beautiful, Arnold Palmer's course at the outstanding Reunion Resort is highlighted by expansive waste area, strategically placed bunkers, and generously wide fairways.

RedTail Golf Course

RedTail Golf Club

Sorrento, FL

Texas Outside Rating 8.8

RedTail Golf Club Review

Certain to test even the most accomplished player's shot-making ability, RedTail offers a challenge at every turn. RedTail is well-known as one of the finest natural golf settings Florida has to offer. RedTail will throw a little bit of everything to keep you on your "A" game. The layout comes close to making RedTail a shot makers course requiring both strategy off the tee as well as target golf to some of the greens. With 5 sets of tee boxes you can bite off as much as you want to challenge or pick a tee box and have an enjoyable and very memorable round.
