The Champions Gate Golf Club is the most famous of all the numerous golf courses in Orlando, Florida. Designed by a golfing great, Greg Norman, and offering two separate championship golf courses as well as some blissfully luxurious Champions Gate apartments and villas in the glorious Orlando countryside, Champions Gate golf holidays are the pinnacle of sporting breaks. Running through over 200 acres of Florida’s forest and wetland scenery, the Champions Gate resort is wonderfully picturesque and peaceful, despite being just a few minutes from the constant draw of Disney World, Florida!
The golf facilities available from a Champions Gate town centre villa are simply exceptional. The courses themselves are among the finest in the whole country, and the clubhouse is a hugely impressive facility with restaurants, bars and corporate facilities. There are 36 holes of championship standard golf to play, with wide, fast fairways and testing greens surrounded by sandy bunkers and thick strips of woodland. The National Course has an undeniably American feel, whilst for those who wish to impress can take to the more familiar International Course, which has a distinctly British taste. However you are playing, help is at hand, there are plentiful practice facilities and a number of excellent tutors on hand to help.
A Champions Gate apartment is just 15 minutes from Disney World too, with all the attractions and magic you associate with the parks easily accessible. Universal Studios, Sea World and Wet n’Wild are all within 20 minutes of a Champions Gate town centre villa too, which will undoubtedly please any children in your party. The Kennedy Space Centre cannot fail to inspire either, and can be found within around half an hour of your Champions Gate apartment.
If the golf, theme parks and fine restaurants of your Champions Gate golf holiday cannot contain the urge to head to the beach in the midday sun, help is at hand. The glorious, world famous beaches of the Floridian coast are within an hour of your Champions Gate town centre villa. There is a vast range to choose from, but all offer absolute serenity, powder soft sands and the chance to enjoy a range of water sports in the warm waters which gently lap the Floridian coast. Scuba diving, sailing and fishing are particularly popular activities in Florida, and it is hard to imagine anywhere better to practice all three!
The Sunshine State of Florida is famous for its stunning year round climate. Although conditions are hot, temperatures are very rarely extreme, with the highest temperatures of the year usually reaching 39 or 40°C. During the long summer, temperatures usually average around 31°C, with daily peaks in the mid-30’s, and evenings remaining wonderfully warm. Even in the middle of winter, average monthly temperatures remain around 21°C, ideal for a Champions Gate golf holiday.
If you are going to rent a hire car during your stay in a self catering Champions Gate apartment, flying to Orlando International Airport (MCO) is probably the best solution. There are regular flights from British Airways and Virgin Atlantic, and numerous car hire centres within the airport. If you would prefer not to take a car, you can get connections onto Davenport Airport (DVN).
