Falcons Fire
Orange County National
Celebration

My favorite is El Campeon Golf Course at the Mission Inn Resort located in Howey in the Hills Fl.  It’s a short easy drive Northwest of Orlando.
You won’t be disappointed. I played there in January and would definitely like to go back!

I'm also heading to Orlando for a week this weekend.  Will have an opportunity to play one round. Might play Disney Magnolia, Celebration or Grand Cypress New... Can't wait !  I'm leaning towards Celebration after seeing it online...

Celebration is a nice track but crazy tight!  Played there with my winter swing and regretted the choice...played falcons fire next day and wasn't as penal with the driver being a little off.

Just got back from a 4-day trip in Kissimmee.  Played all 3 tracks at the Reunion Resort. Watson/Nicklaus/Palmer courses.  We got paired up with a member on our last day on the Palmer course.  She said that a few weeks ago they had a water crisis at the resort.  She didn't go into full detail other than the Watson/Palmer tracks didn't get water for several days, something about a water pump issue.  Both courses were very dry and brown, greens were very nice though.  The Nicklaus course is a couple miles away and they did not have that problem, it was very green.  I will post pics when I can.

I played Celebration Monday, I liked it a lot. Yes there are some tight holes. Might play tomorrow not sure where tho, was thinking falcons fire it’s very close to where I am staying .
