The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Mission Inn Resort & Club (El Campeón course): Located amidst rolling countryside to the northwest of Orlando, Mission Inn boasts two excellent golf courses. El Campeón (the Champion), as distinct from the resort's Las Colinas course, was built in 1917, making it one of the south's oldest golf courses. Significant elevation changes, of up to 85 feet, are the most notable characteristic of this excellently presented course; some of the falls and rises are more pronounced than you'll see on most central Florida courses. At the par-4 4th hole the layout's topography is clear to see, with a sizable hill playing home to several tees and greens, and water also much in play on several holes.

A wonderful mix of lakes, mature trees and golfing challenges combine in this attractive parkland layout. Housing is confined to the perimeter of the course, creating a predominantly natural parkland environment, flat in places, more sloping in others, and bristling with palms, firs, oaks and mature trees of many varieties. The signature hole is the long, double dogleg par-5 17th, which ends in front of the beautiful Spanish-style Mission Inn, but only after you've navigated a threatening array of obstacles and hazards.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
