ChampionsGate Golf Resort is a Central Florida golf masterpiece - when on the golf course it seems that you are miles away from civilization, and yet the Orlando resort is less than 15-minutes from Walt Disney World. The 36-holes of world-class golf at ChampionsGate were designed to offer golfers a blend of traditional and modern elements, creating a truly unique golf opportunity.
ChampionsGate Golf Club's two 18-hole championship courses were both designed by famed course architect and golfer, Greg Norman. Together, the National and International Courses bring a unique combination to Orlando Golf - two totally different designs married with Florida's natural habitat, where every hole features beautiful natural vistas.
The par 72 International Course brings a unique ‘down under' style of coastal links from Norman's homeland to Orlando golf. The 7,363-yard links-style layout is designed around scenic natural wetlands and features long carries, deep pot bunkers, tall grass-topped dunes, and large undulating greens.

This includes a spacious four-acre practice area with a driving range, two putting greens, two chipping greens as well as a pitching area with a dozen target bunkers.
