Have wanted to play for a while and finally got the chance to. No idea there was so much acreage near Orlando to where you feel like you are secluded and in the Isles of the UK. Fabulous, staff great, can't think of any negatives. A true test of golf and very enjoyable at the same time.

Maintenance sprinklers were on hole 11, also13 working around green side sand trap, sprinklers on 14 par 3. Also 15 a group of maintenance men talking where we could hear them. This was our second round this week. Maybe just bad luck, first round was good.

Everything about the International course is excellent. Course conditions are best I have seen anywhere for a long long time. (For reference in the last 3 weeks i have played Waldorf, both Orange County courses, Shingle Creek, Mission Inn and Falcons Fire). Greens are very challenging, fast, firm and so true. Fairways and tees are excellent. Rough is plenty challenging. Practice areas are excellent. Staff was nice and very helpful. Really looking forward to my next round there.

From tee to green it is difficult to imagine a course in better condition than CG-I. The only blemishes are the unfilled divots that irresponsible golfers have failed to repair. The greens are fast and true but receptive to a crisply struck approach shot. The tees are invariably healthy and plush. The rough is full and as difficult as it should be. Under the pleasant conditions I experienced, the course fairly tested one’s golfing skills. However, given a brisk wind, instead of a gentle breeze, CG-I could certainly be a monster! The layout is straight forward and there are no hidden tricks or pitfalls. Simply stated, the course has no shortcomings and is a treat to play! I highly recommend it.

course was immaculate. Greens were fast and firm. Played the back tees and still got into trouble. Have to play this track once to understand where you can miss your shots. The rough was punishing as it should be. A perk was watching Patrick Reed getting a lesson from David Ledbetter.
