My son and I played 18 the other day and really enjoyed ourselves. We're fans of old style courses that are straight-forward and difficult but not purposefully penal (think Firestone South). El Campeon runs up and down some pretty significant hills (this is Florida, after all!) with ball-swallowing ponds on many holes. We played the white tees which were sloped at 131, I recall. I believe it! 390 up hill plays like 410-420 so it was all we had to get a GIR. It was a good test.
The course will be 100 years old in 2018 and the old oaks and lovely landscaping stand in testimony to this quality, old design. The course condition was A- and the greens were excellent with loads of speed-testing grain changes. I'd happily play it again.
Greens fees were reasonable.
