The classic American parkland course design has 18 contiguous holes that wind through 200 acres of secluded woodlands, wetlands, and former orange groves. With its lush fairways and greens, and the stunning natural beauty integrated into the design by Greg Norman, playing the National Golf Course is truly an Orlando golf adventure.

The National Course at ChampionsGate features gently sweeping fairways, 80 sculpted bunkers, greens maintained in tour condition, clever doglegs and scenic water hazards. Water comes into play on many holes, but few forced carries means that this layout can be maneuvered by all levels of players. The sharply framed golf holes end up on smaller greens, making it a shot maker’s delight. Wayward shots will quickly unravel your round.

The par-4 fourth hole is typical of challenges facing the golfer. At just 323 yards from the black tees (311 from the blues) long hitters are tempted to take a shot at the green. However, there is trouble everywhere – wetlands that you have to carry and that run down the entire left side of this dogleg left; large bunkers on the right with ball-gobbling trees right of the bunkers. If you are playing in a scramble, hit a safe hybrid or long iron, then have your big hitter go for it.

The National Course has one of the best finishing stretches in the Orlando area. The par-3 15 is a short, but intimidating shot over wetlands – and is known to “eat” over 15,000 balls annually.

While 17 is short, 18 is a long par 5. This difficult dogleg-left measures 636 yards from the back tees and follows a lake all the way to the green making this a great finishing hole. Scoring a par requires hitting three very good long iron shots.
