Have a look at golf now or red flag deals when you book here, you could save 50%. The course is "plenty" from the whites. Loads of tree trouble if straight or fairway t shots are not your thing.

This course is unusual for Florida in that it has lots of topography...hills. Several tees are elevated as are greens. The course was built in 1917 so they must have used ploughs and horses and followed the contours of the land. There seems to be water on every hole...and unless you are deadly accurate you will find this a challenge.... More

Played the El Campeon for the first time and have nothing to say but "Incredible"! The course was well maintained and challenging for all levels. Greeted at my car and great service throughout the club to the starter. Nickers also had some great drinks and food after my round. Finished my round close to 4 hours.

It has been a few years since I played this course. Nothing has changed. It was excellent then and it is excellent now. The course has some great elevation changes. You will find yourself hitting drives into hills and down hills. Club selection is important as some fairways narrow in landing zones or have strategically placed bunkers. That said the... More

My golf game may not have been Amazing, but the course definitely was. It is a beautiful course, with lush fairways and true greens, A real treat to play. The Greens Superintendent has done a fantastic job with this course. The course is not easy, plays very long. I am an above average Lady golfer who hits a long ball,... More

I played 18 holes at the El Campeon course this summer and the golf course was in a really good shape. All the staff who worked there on that day were helpful and friendly. The golf course was a little challenging but it had great scenery especially the 18th hole. My friend and I had lunch at the club house... More

Its always a beautiful day to be on the golf course. They have two, and both so well maintained. If your heart has a desire, they have a girl on a cart. If you win, they have a great restaurant where you can collect from your friends. The restaurant has a buffet, a bar and guite the place to relax.

Everyone there was most helpful, and made the day wonderful for our Daughter and New Son-in-law. Service was outdoor in a beautiful spot with a fountain. A Champagne brunch floowed, great foot/selection. And since it was also my husbands 82 birthday, the staff surprised him with a cake and a serenade!!
