Mission Inn Stay & Play
Just 35 minutes from Orlando, Mission Inn offers you an escape to a spectacular Central Florida golf vacation, a romantic couples getaway, or your next corporate event. Along with world-class golf on two championship courses, you can take in the vistas along hiking paths, lounge poolside, play tennis and volleyball, or even try bass fishing and trap/skeet shooting.
Conveniently central to Central Florida’s world-famous theme parks, wineries, shopping and local attractions, Mission Inn Resort & Club also provides a refined home base for guests wishing to explore the Lake County area. Renowned for its picturesque rolling hills, orange groves, and shimmering lakes, the area draws golf enthusiasts, fishermen and eco-tourists who enjoy being surrounded by the region’s expansive natural beauty.
Surrounded by an abundance of natural Florida beauty, the El Campeón 18-hole championship course was designed by Chicago-based course architect, George O’Neil and built in 1917 – with further enhancements in 1926 by Charles E. Clarke of Troon, Scotland. El Campeón is one of the South’s oldest golf courses and blends unusual Central Florida elevation changes of more than 85 feet with features of traditional golf design, including spectacular rolling fairways and undulating greens. The course’s signature hole is the par 5, 17th hole – which features a long double dogleg that has more obstacles than some entire courses!
Designed by Gary Koch and built in 1992, Las Colinas (Spanish for “the hills”) is an 18-hole championship course that offers quite a different challenge from El Campeón. It is an inland links design with generous, wide-open fairways, gentle rolling hills and large, undulating greens. Las Colinas was nominated as “Best New Resort Course” by Golf Digest in 1992, named “Best Places to Play – 4 stars” by Golf Digest, and has received “Top Fairways” recognition by Golf for Women. Its signature hole is “Alligator Alley”, the par 5, 12th hole that spans 493 yards along a tree-lined fairway and requires absolute accuracy from tee-to-green.
