Champion Lakes Golf Course
Aiming to become one of the premier golf courses in the state, the new Champion Lakes Golf Course was rebuilt by SAJO Construction in 1999 under the guidance of world-renowned architect Charles Howard. Since reopening in 2000, it established itself as one of the premier golf facilities in South Texas, serving as the home course for approximately twenty-two (22) annual tournaments, including the famous RGV API Fundraiser, the prestigious VAMOS Golf Tournament and the McAllen Amateur Golf Championship. Champion Lakes also hosted all four (4) LPGA's Futures Tour stops in McAllen and is now the home course for seventeen (17) winter Texan Leagues; its popular Wednesday Sundowner accounts for a record 1,784 participants in one (1) season!
The beautiful par 72 championship layout boasts a length of 5,779 yards from the middle tees but can quickly turn into a challenging 6,771 yards if played from the back tees. It’s wide, generous, and rolling fairways feature “419” Bermuda grass and are lined by Common Bermuda roughs and mounds that at places create a links style atmosphere. Fourteen (14) man-made lakes provide the golfer with pleasant thrills and some of the most panoramic views in the area. The recent addition of new tees and trees further enhance the character of the layout.
Moreover, Champion Lakes Golf Course has a fully remodeled clubhouse that sits overlooking the entire golf course. The Pro Shop is stocked with the latest in golf apparel and equipment and offers a great variety of choices for all of your golfing needs.
