The name and history speaks for itself! I highly recommend, the fairways were in pristine condition especially with all the rain that's came down. Greens were sanded and fertilized but there's a tournament next week that they are preparing for so I have no complaints. I will be back!

It’s always a treat to play these two great courses. Today was no exception. The course was in excellent shape. The greens were firm and rolled true and fast. As always the staff was friendly, courteous and doing anything they can to be helpful.

My first time playing Los Colinas. Played with another single. We finished in 3 hours, as no one was ahead of us. Fairway rough a bit high, but over all course conditions were very good.Will look forward to playing again.

Range and practice green is beautiful. Staff is very friendly. Course conditions were very good and drainage is good considering rains we've had. Greens were smooth and good speed. Only problem was pace of play was horrible!! Our round took almost 5 hours due to one group who had a 4 hole gap between them and group in front of them. Ranger told us about it but apparently didn't do anything about it. Unacceptable in my opinion. This is my probably tenth time at mission inn and this is the first time I've had a pace problem so hopefully an anomaly. Great deal otherwise for $45.

Conditions are top notch according to you but you give them a good instead of excellent? You said its the best place to golf in central Florida. Why not excellent conditions then Gotta? Gotta be better than that when reviewing.

Great value for the money. Even though wet conditions in spots, the course was in great shape. Greens were just coming back from aeroation and was a little inconsistent.

There are golf courses that are just as good that aren’t hyped up like this place. Don’t get me wrong, it nice but for the hype, could’ve been better. With that said, I would still recommend it if you don’t have to travel too far to play it.

I had heard that the 2 courses at Mission Inn were highly touted and since we couldn’t get off the better of the two, El Campeon, we chose to play Las Colinas expecting similar conditions. I would say the course isn’t overly expensive however I don’t think I’d pay $50 for it being in the shape it was in. Now, let me first say that it wasn’t in bad shape by any means it just could use refining in spots and although they just punched greens recently, there are courses of the same tier that heal better as these greens were hoppy. I absolutely loved the layout however. I think that there was a true “golfers” mix of narrow and wide, short and long holes. This kept it engaging the whole round. I’d say it’s worth the play on a weekday rate but feel like you’re better off going somewhere with a proven track record on the weekend.

I have played here 5 times this year and I don't know why I keep going back? It is an excellent course in great shape all the time but the management is very poor . They treat Golfnow tee times as step children. My time was 1:58 and got there at 1:15 and was told i had to wait until 1:30 for hot deals. No one on tee. Ridiculous. They should stop partnering with Golfnow if they are going to treat their customers poorly.

But you booked for 1:58. You have to understand there is no benefit for them to let you off early when they aren’t really seeing the revenue from your tee time.
