We went here with family and friends (7 of us) for Thanksgiving. Beautiful setting and great food, wonderful variety, not just the same old turkey - day, although that was available too! Really a great dining experience.

One of the most beautiful public golf courses I have ever seen, complete with rolling hills! The golf course was beautifully designed with lots of natural fauna. You will not be disappointed!!

The words I’d use to describe this course are stately and elegant. It’s got some good challenges, the architecture of the Mission Inn adds interest and we even had an alligator on the 18th hole for an added attraction! Really enjoyed the experience.

Very friendly staff, great Saturday night seafood buffet resort is also close to Mount Dora and Clermont. I'm not a golfer but the course's looked very nice. Great area for motorcycle riding.

We played Las Colinas, which was just okay at best, nothing special. But, what ticks me off is being charged underhandedly for a tee-time we didn't use. We booked a foursome through GolfNow although one guy in our group had to withdraw because his dog...More

Played El Campeon and enjoyed it tremendously. The course conditions were good and the layout is simply fantastic with lots of water including some island type greens and some high elevations. The design is very well thought out with some unique elements including some strategic...More

Played both courses in Feb. 2018. Both were in very good shape. Greens and fairways especially were very nice, rolled well. Staff was pleasant. Rates were reasonable. Trying to get a lunch between rounds was almost impossible, slow service.
