~ $139 Celebratory Rate Includes Accommodations and Greens Fees ~

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS – The two championship, 18-hole golf courses at Mission Inn Resort & Club – El Campeón and Las Colinas – have recently received a four-star rating from Golf Digest. Both will be included in the publication’s 2008-2009 edition of “Best Places to Play,” which rates nearly 60,000 courses in North America and the Caribbean.

To celebrate this achievement the resort has introduced a “Golf No Limits” package that includes overnight accommodations, unlimited same-day greens fees, all-day shared cart rental and driving range privileges for just $139 per person, per night, based on double occupancy.

Mission Inn, nestled in the rolling hills of Lake County 30 miles northwest of Orlando, is a 1,000-acre resort with 190 graciously appointed guestrooms, suites and villas; three restaurants, two lounges and a poolside bar. Golfers can enjoy a challenging round on Las Colinas, designed by former PGA Tour Player Gary Koch, as well as El Campeón – named one of Zagat’s Top American Golf Courses for 2007-2008 – which was designed by George O’Neil of Chicago in 1917 and offers rare, tee-to-green elevations of 85 feet. The resort is also home to the Mission Inn Golf Academy, Bird Golf Academy and highly acclaimed Gary Gilchrist Golf Academy, a breeding ground for junior champions from around the world.

In addition to championship golf, recreational amenities include eight tennis courts, jogging and bicycling trails, volleyball courts, an outdoor pool and hydro-spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, trap and skeet shooting range and a nautical center, where guests can fish, powerboat and go eco-touring. The quaint boutiques and antique shops of historic Mount Dora, central Florida’s storied antiques capital, are nearby and world-famous Orlando attractions are a 45-minute drive from the resort.
