Whether you are down playing in Flagler County's Palm Harbor Golf Club or up in Amelia Island playing Golf Club at North Hampton, you will surely find all the First Coast's courses to have their own unique characteristics. 

 

TASTE

Take full advantage of the “nineteenth hole” and whet your appetites with some of the best food and post-game drinks in Northeast Florida. With a beer scene that’s brewing up faster than it takes the head to settle on a cold one, you can go from holes to hops (or sand to suds, if it was an “off” round) all along Florida’s First Coast.

 

SEE

Explore and take in the sights, sounds and history of Northeast Florida. Enjoy the ocean views or take in a plethora of concerts or live music throughout our region (did you know we’re home to Lynyrd Skynyrd?). And with St. Augustine (America’s oldest city) within reach you have access to a destination steeped in history. 

 

The First Coast is open and we’re ready to welcome you!
