About Mission Inn Resort & Club

The family-owned Mission Inn is one of Florida's friendliest and most value-forward resorts. With two golf courses, including the century-old El Campeon layout, it is an ideal setting for buddies trips and, at about 45 minutes from Orlando International Airport (MCO), remains convenient to reach from afar while removed from O-town's occasionally chaotic energy.

Must play in central Florida

Mission Inn El Campion is a must play for any serious player. The layout with severe elevation changes and tough greens are a great test of golf. The greens had been recently been punched and need about 2-3 weeks to get back to normal. They are puttable, but much slower than normal. The course plays much longer than the scorecard due to the numerous holes that require uphill tee or approach shots. Despite the recent heavy rains, the fairways and bunkers were in good condition. After the round be sure to get a burger at Nickers restaurant, best burger in town. If the range had been open (closed for maintenance) and the greens completely recovered from aerification, El Campion would have been up to its usual 5 star standards.

Mission Inn, Las Colinas was Awesome!

We played the Las Colinas course at Mission Inn, and it was in fantastic shape. My son was down from Alaska and just loved the course. The staff was great and friendly. We'll definitely return!

Best deal in the state

Always love playing at Mission Inn. Historic course in great shape, and little traffic on a hot day. If you can handle the summer heat, you can typically play 18 in well under 3 hours.

Six Hour Round - Very Disappointing

I have played both courses at Mission Inn Multiple times and always enjoyed it. Yesterday was outrageous. There was a tournament ahead of us which we were not informed about. That in itself would not have been a problem. The concern was that there was no control on the pace of play resulting in a six hour round. There was a Marshall who avoided people, obviously to avoid any conflict. Six hours is not an exaggeration it was the longest round in the history of me playing golf. I will avoid Mission Inn in the future.

10 out of 10

From top to bottom, from customer service to the greens… They really have their act together, and care about you like we all want to be cared about. What a concept…

Thank you John, Dick and the rest for making my 16 year old son, literally fall in love with the sport of golf, after he played here one time!!!

We’re playing Las Colinas week, and “The Champion” again next week…

See you soon!

Pick Up The Pace!

I live in the area and have played both courses many times. I love the courses and the people that work here are always friendly.

My lesson learned is play during the week. Saturday was a 5 PLUS hour round. No Marshall’s looking after pace of play.

Only one working water fountain on the course and would not of been bad except only saw the beverage cart twice. Once on #1 and the next time was on #14 tee box.

The conditions were fantastic but the pace of play made for a very tough day.

Thank you for your input! We had 2 rangers on Las Colinas and had timed a 4:45 pace. We strive for 4 1/2, but this can be challenging with larger outings on course. Grounds is working on water bubblers and F&B will address the bev cart comment. Hope you return to Mission Inn

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.

Stop and smell the flowers. Golf is not a speed sport. 5.5 hours with this beautiful area
I would think 6 hours would be
Very rewarding.

Excellent Course. Very Challenging

Our group has played El Campion A few times and I always loved it. Decided to play Las Colinas for a change and also love it. The course conditions from Tee to green of very good. The course is very challenging with a variety of shot placements required. Very enjoyable and an excellent test of golf skills. Just what you would expect from a course that host amateur and professional golf tournaments. We played from the white tees which is just shy of 6400 yards. Next time I think I’ll move up a Tee box Which still plays around 6000 yards.

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.
