ChampionsGate Golf Resort, International Course
Green surrounds and par three tees surfaces were replaced with 419 Bermuda replacing the original Paspalum turf. Both changes will allow for firmer, quicker playing conditions, more year-round consistency, more tolerant in colder temperatures, ready to produce remarkable quality and playing conditions for a considerable length of time to come.
Picking up more than 42,000 sq. ft. of greens surface will allow for a few new pin positions that will test players of all ability levels. Various fairway bunkers were likewise evacuated for this restoration project to allow for cleaner sight lines off the tee. The International Course still brags a crude design, a rustic “down under” style of a waterfront links course from Greg Norman’s country, yet with new turf surfaces that will allow conditions to be firm and quick for longer drives and will provide all the more challenging putting experiences on bigger all the more undulating greens.
The International Course was as of late ranked no. 9 in the top general ranked courses by GOLF Advisor. The 7,363-yard links-style International Course is home to sprawling greens and wind-cleared ridges, featuring 18 of the most sensational and challenging holes in the state.
