Mission Inn (Las Colinas)
Located amidst rolling countryside to the northwest of Orlando, the Mission Inn Resort & Club boasts two excellent golf courses. Las Colinas (The Hills) is quite a different layout from its more renowned sibling, the El Campeón course.
This much more recent design is flanked in part by golf-side residences, but also makes good use of the indigenous forest and swamp, ensuring a variety of habitat on your way round. Most of the time you'll enjoy wide-open fairways, but there are some tightish drives to make, not least at the par-5 12th, known as Alligator Alley; it is not so much water that will concern you as the towering oaks and firs through which your ball must be accurately threaded.
After a relatively flat front-nine, the hills that give the course its name arrive at the 14th and 15th holes, although the elevation changes you'll experience aren't quite as pronounced as on El Campeón. The greens here are large and undulating, while the course's classic styling requires good shot placement if you want to score well.
