Its common knowledge these days that Orlando is golf central. According to sports journalist Steve Elling, “if St. Andrews is the cradle of golf then Orlando is where it came to grow up”. Florida has long been home to some of golf’s biggest names with Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Vijay Singh, Nick Faldo and more recently Rory McIlroy live or have at one time lived in the state. And of course you can’t talk about Orlando golf without mentioning ‘the King’, Arnold Palmer, who first came to Orlando long before Disney had ever set foot here.
Orlando of course provides a mild year round climate and some of the best golf courses in the US, including Osprey Ridge, Disney World’s 4 courses, the Southern Dunes course south of Orlando in Haines City, Palmer’s own Bay Hil, and Greg Norman’s two signature courses in the ChampionsGate resort. Of course the fact that there is no income tax in Florida also helps in attracting celebrities and business magnates.
ChampionsGate has become one of the top destinations for amateur golfers who want the follow their heroes and buy their own Florida golf base, one that puts them close to some of the world’s greatest golf but can also provide plenty to do for their families; ChampionsGate of course is just a few minutes from the gates of Disney World.
Irish developer Garrett Kenny, owner of the Feltrim Group, who has now built two resorts at ChampionsGate; the enormously popular Tuscana Resort, and most recently the Fountains townhouse development, points to the location and the resort’s own resident courses; “I was drawn to ChampionsGate originally as I saw it filling a gap in the Orlando real estate market. Not only were we going to get two Greg Norman designed golf courses, but we would be next door to Disney, just off the I-4 highway, and also have a commercial area outside of the individual resorts with shops, dining and other leisure activities. It made huge sense.”
Feltrim which is getting ready for the Grand Opening of the Fountains development in late June is also selling units in the luxury ChampionsClub development. Here buyers can chose between 2-3 bed duplex style apartments, and benefit from a wide array of in-resort amenities such as resort pools, lazy river, swim up bar, fitness, tennis, full service restaurant, tiki bar and plenty more. This aside from all the other amenities available in the larger ChampionsGate resort. 2 bedroom apartments cost $191,990, while 3 bedrooms cost $224,990.
