Experience the finest golf in the Sunshine State
Florida, marketed as the “Sunshine State”, can brag that its climate is perfectly suited for golf year-round. Summers can be steamy in certain places, but warmer winter weather attracts snowbirds from around the country who want to get outside and play. Florida boasts more golf courses than any other state, despite ranking only 26th in size. More than 1,000 golf courses call Florida home. They range from the oldest, the private Belleair Country Club (dating to 1897), to the newest, Streamsong Black, a linksy resort layout by Gil Hanse that opened in central Florida in 2018.
Deciding where to visit or play is no easy task. All of Florida’s major cities are top-notch golf destinations. Miami/the Palm Beaches, Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and Naples all feature top resorts, fine public courses and host at least some sort of professional golf tournament, whether it’s the PGA Tour, PGA Tour Champions, Web.com Tour or LPGA Tour. All of the annual PGA Tour stops in the state are open for public play – the Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Champion course at PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, the Copperhead course at Innisbrook Golf Resort near Tampa, and the Players Stadium course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach. If you’re game isn’t good enough to “play where the pros play”, don’t worry. There’s always another course waiting to be explored.
