Built in 1917, El Campeon at Mission Inn Resort & Club stands as one of the South’s oldest courses. The sloping hills of the central highlands provide golf the course with more than 85 feet in elevation changes, which were deftly utilized in the rolling fairways and undulating greens. The layout also features more traditional aspects of golf design, giving it a diversity and versatility that appeals to a wide range of skill levels and tastes. Several lakes and numerous mature trees including palms, firs, and oaks provide both challenges and scenery. The signature hole is the penultimate par 5. This lengthy, double dogleg features more obstacles than some entire golf courses. In addition to El Campeon, the resort offers a second, more player-friendly 18-hole course as well as an expansive driving range, a practice bunker with target green, and a large putting green.
