Pace of Play
Among the most thorough rating guides in all of golf, ZAGAT covers more than 1,000 of the best courses in the United States. Courses in the guide are rated based on the responses of nearly 6,000 reviewers who play more than 552,000 rounds annually. Strength of layout, value, overall quality, facility and service standards are taken into consideration.
"It’s a wonderful honor to be recognized as one the nation’s best courses," says Camp Creek General Manager Will Hopkins. "We’re especially pleased to receive this distinction from such a prestigious and objective publication."
Being named to the ZAGAT Survey is the latest in a long line of distinctions garnered by Camp Creek. Most recently, the course was rated the No. 8 course in all of Florida by Golfweek and was named the "No. 1 Florida course of the new millennium" by Travel + Leisure Golf.
