Winter Schminter, Keep Your Golf Game From Getting Cold this Season

Winter comes and winter goes, but in Northeast Florida when it comes, it doesn’t seem to grab us by the (golf) balls quite as hard as it does in other destinations. So don’t be dissuaded to get out on the course during the winter months here.

Generally speaking, most people consider spring and summer the optimal seasons for golfing, but we’re going to highlight several solid reasons to embrace winter golfing in Florida’s First Coast.

 

1. No Seasonal Lay Off

Which means no time to let your golf game get stale. Northeast Florida is a true year-round golf destination and our resident golfers and frequent visitors know that if they’re here. The perfect Florida weather gives them no excuse for letting their game get cold.

 

2. Fair Course Conditions

Typically you won’t experience bitter frigidity here in Florida. You don’t have to worry about harsh conditions causing your body to stiffen or your equipment to take a beating. Sure, you’re going to have some days that require wearing an extra layer or two, but you’re still going to enjoy yourself out on the course.

 

3. Fewer Crowds

During the winter months, golfers can make the most of the uncrowded fairways; take advantage of smaller wait times on each tee box and maybe take a little extra time with some of your shots. No matter the conditions, some people are going to treat the season as a hibernation period—it’s just that winter mindset. And we don’t mind it one bit.

 

4. Winter packages & hotels deals

Take advantage of discounted exclusive golf packages that are offered in the winter months. This means extra savings for you if you choose to golf in Amelia Island, Clay County, Jacksonville and the Beaches, Palm Coast and Flagler Beaches, St. Augustine or Ponte Vedra Beach.
