     The Golfweek Senior National Championship is being held at The Las Colinas Course at Mission Inn Resort &  Club   located in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida.  Located just ½ hour north of Orlando, Howey-in-the-Hills is a destination away from the hustle and bustle of theme parks.  Mission Inn Resort & Club was inspired by Spanish Colonial architecture and amidst the rolling hills lie two remarkable golf courses.  The more friendly play out of the two is Las Colinas (the Hills), designed by Gary Koch; this course will be the backdrop for the tournament.  Although friendly, the water in the form of creeks and wetlands amidst the rolling terrain will prove to be challenging for any player
