Golf around Orlando: Whether you're here with kids or on an 'adults only' vacation, you will want to check out the top golf courses open to the fee-paying public.

Among them is the international Greg Norman-designed course at Championships Gate Golf Club, a British links-style layout with multiple water features and a diverse wildlife. Mission Inn Resort & Club is a historic course in a lush environment of oaks, firs and palms, whose mix of flat and sloping surfaces add to the challenge.
