Greg Norman

Welcome to ChampionsGate Golf Club in Orlando, Florida.  Featuring 36 holes of championship golf just minutes from the Walt Disney World resort area. The International golf course, a masterpiece designed by the legendary Greg Norman, stands as a testament to the seamless blend of traditional and modern elements, offering a distinct Scottish flair reminiscent of the British Isles.   The National course offers a more traditional parkland-style American golfing experience.

Recognized as one of the best golf courses in Orlando in 2023, ChampionsGate Golf Club has firmly established itself as one of the standard-bearers for golfing prowess in the Orlando area.

Greg Norman's artistic vision unfolds on the International course, featuring a classical layout with an outward nine and an inward nine, effortlessly leading golfers back to the clubhouse. Enhanced by native Florida water hazards, the course exudes the charm of a true links-style sanctuary. Grassy dunes lining the firm, fast fairway surfaces create a challenging yet authentic Scottish golf experience, complete with strategically placed pot bunkers to test golfers of all skill levels.

The International course at ChampionsGate Golf Club captivates not only with its visual allure but also with its demanding layout. The common area rough, allowed to grow naturally and long, adds an extra layer of challenge to the game. While the wide, reachable fairways provide ample room for powerful drives, misjudged shots may lead to daunting lies in the wind-swept dunes or within well-placed pot bunkers. Navigating through the Central Florida Wetlands, Greg Norman's design seamlessly intertwines beauty and challenge, offering golfers an unparalleled journey.

A highlight of the International course lies in its greens, which underwent a transformative resurfacing project in the summer of 2016. All 18 greens were upgraded from Floradwarf to Champion Bermuda turfgrass, ensuring optimal putting conditions on a daily basis. The varied sizes and shapes of the greens, coupled with undulating bumps and steep slopes, make each round a thrilling test of precision and strategy.

ChampionsGate Golf Club proudly hosts both National and International Courses, providing golf enthusiasts with the choice between authentic links-style golf and a traditional American-style experience. Whether drawn to the challenging nuances of the International course or the classic design of the National Course, ChampionsGate Golf Club guarantees a round of golf that transcends the ordinary. As golf enthusiasts venture into this acclaimed destination in Orlando, Florida, they are sure to discover why ChampionsGate Golf Club is synonymous with excellence on the green.
