If you are in Northeast Florida for the Fourth of July, balance time on the green with local festivities to make your 4th unforgettable. If your little ones tire of golf easily and can barely make it through 10 holes, let alone all 18, try an alternative family game, like Topgolf. Score points using micro-chipped golf balls and Toptracer technology. The more accurate your shot and the farther the distance, the more points you earn. Grab your swim suits and head over Bent Creek Golf Course, where you’ll be about a half an hour from Jacksonville Beaches. Bent Creek is a public course that feels secluded, surrounded by trees and forest and plenty of shade.
This fourth, plan to play a little golf at Hidden Hills Golf Club, a gorgeous course re-designed by Arnold Palmer and located right next to the beach. But what’s better than playing right next to the beach… playing right ON the beach. Check out the award-winning Ocean Course at Hammock Beach. While you’re sinking hole-in-ones in the calm ocean breeze, your family can take a dip in the cool ocean waves.
If your family is looking for even more outdoor activities, there’s plenty of exploring to be done in Clay County. Home to many award winning golf courses, there are also numerous hiking and biking trails to enjoy. Bring a picnic and take in the lush Florida scenery before the evening’s festivities.
