Earlier this year, we were voted the 2017 “North American Golf Destination of the Year” by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators. There are quite a few reasons that we were awarded this honor—reasons that we think will help you plan your next golf vacation to northeast Florida.

Five coastal regions lend access to a true, year-round golf destination, full of entertainment on and off the course. Florida’s First Coast is the annual host of The PLAYERS Championship and home to the World Golf Hall of Fame, a state-of-the-art concert venue, an NFL team, 75 miles of beautiful beaches and the clincher: championship golf.

 

If you’re a local or visiting golfers looking for your next golfing trip, check these out:
