About Mission Inn Resort & Club

The family-owned Mission Inn is one of Florida's friendliest and most value-forward resorts.

Another great day on El Campeon

The course was in great shape. Everyone in the pro shop is always so nice. The practice area is the best in the area.
The greens were fast and true. Can’t wait to play it again.

Las Colinas

Having played El Campione previously I was looking forward to playing Las Colinas. Glad to say I was not disappointed as it is in no way a second course - every bit as good as each other. Friendly welcome upon arrival and course in great condition. Loved the par 5 12th hole which is a real beauty. Only negatives might be the distances between some holes - though on a lovely day like today it was fine. Will be happy to return for a game at either of the Mission Inn courses and recommend both highly.

A must play course

El Campeon is always in great shape. There was a state amateur being contested so the course set up was extra challenging. Enjoyed it so much, I am going back this week.

El Campeno was way overbooked so we had to play the other course

We were so excited to play El Campeno but there was an hour wait from our scheduled tee time. They were letting players there for the Sunshine State Amateur out on the course to practice that did not have tee times. The other course was OK but we drove over an hour for our tee time at El Campeno….disappointing.

Disappointing

We finally teed off 45 mins after our scheduled tee time. It felt like a large group of players were squeezed into our tee time slots. The round took over 5.5 hours with a 5 minute wait between each shot. The course is great albeit very challenging however the slow play affected the enjoyment of the day

Fun round at Mission Inn

The only problem was a near 3 hours for second nine due to Florida High School practice rounds, however, it was still a good day!

El Campeon Needs Improvements

This course needs a lot of improvements.

Drainage on 1 and 18 are terrible. Spots on the course need fill brought in as there are exposed tree roots everywhere. Trees on certain holes need manicured.

Course is in dire need of a manicure. 1 and 17 are two of the dumbest par 5’s on any course I have played. The trees in the fairway are stupid and should be removed. Will help with drainage in those areas as well by removing.

Trees on 3 need to be manicured and trimmed back off the tee boxes.

Hole 7 might be the dumbest hole in golf particularly for woman and seniors having to lay up for a longer second shot than they can even drive the ball.

Too many holes look the same and becomes boring.

This course is really hard. The typical weekend golfer will slow this course down to a snails pace.

I have played a lot of courses in Florida and I give the overall rating a 3. It is not a dump, but a lot of better options out there to play. For anyone over a single digit handicap this course is a beat to play.

Greens were great

Always a tough track, greens were in excellent condition. A couple of downhill putts were extremely fast. Watch out for the gator on number 10.

Relaxed Rounds

We played this course twice in the past few days and enjoyed relaxed rounds with no crowding or rushing. While this course is not up to the level of quality of El Campeon, it is still a good course and is well taken care of. There are some repairs going on, but did not overly affect our play. My wife prefers this course over many others in the area, and yes, she scores very well at Las Colinas. Certainly worth playing!
