Tee off first, or expect a 5 hour round

Course is in excellent shape, but we tee’d at 7:00 and a family of 4 with 2 young children went off at 6:40, not a ranger in sight, and they were allowed to play a 5.5 hour round. Great course, great conditions, very poor management of pace of play. Makes a nice course miserable to play.

Hectic start, amazing course

Course staff was late getting there and short some help so getting started was a challenge. Once on the tee, it was perfect. Played behind a slow group but you’ll find that at any golf course in America. The layout was awesome, conditions were nearly perfect. Greens were punched a week ago and weren’t quite healed all the way but still ran fast and true. Apparently the greenskeepers wife beat on him the night before because some of the pin locations were insane but not unfair. I will be back as often as I can.

Awesome!!

This was my second time playing, but I brought a few buddies that had never played here before.We drove an hour and a half, for a 9:24am tee time. It was worth it!!!!
When you get done with your round, go have lunch in Knickers, and ask for Joe!!
Great Americans!!!

I think they made a mistake ?!

First time making it to Mission inn and it was definitely worth the trip! It took!an hour and 15 from NSB and boy was it worth it!. We played the El Campeon in just ober 3 hours and it was fantastic. Playing so fast we decided to check out Las Colinas and it was great also. 2 beautiful courses in the same place is amazing.!

The course did not disappoint!

I've always wanted to play Mission Inn and after photographing a couple of rounds of the Symetra Tour stop there, I had to make it happen. This course will challenge you on almost every shot and I didn't have a problem with that. The elevation changes make even a simple 100-yard wedge shot a bit more difficult. For me as a photographer, I was really taken in by how visually impressive the layout is. There are some tight holes and you might want to re-think hitting the driver, but then there are plenty of changes to "grip it and rip it". The greens were fast and more of a challenge than I'm used to as I'm not proficient at reading greens without a lot of undulations.
I can't think of anything negative about the course, it was amazing. I only wish I could have uploaded more photos!

Exceptional course

Exceptional layout, well maintained with a lot of scenic and challenging holes. Greens were really fast and true. Staff was excellent. My golfnow reservation wasn't in their system but they took care of it in a courteous and professional manner.

Great course; good day; mezza mezza golf.

First time playing here. Wonderful layout with elevation changes. Excellent conditions.
Played Challenger tees. Good name for them for a 75 year-old with a 16 index. Little slow...a twosome behind a foursome. Still finished just under four hours. Played with a great fellow (Dave) who advised me well around the course.
Got a "hot deal," so the value was great. Only visiting the area for a short time, but hope to get back before I leave.

Historic and still a tough test

This course is a wonderful golf course. The conditions were very nice and there were no major glaring issues. I really enjoyed the change of elevation that is uncommon to Florida and found it interesting that there were holes where you were basically hitting into the side of a steep hill. The course plays very difficult so make sure to pick the correct tees.
