Take a look at why golf in Florida is not like golf in other areas of the country. Here’s what to expect -


Warmer Temperatures

No need to worry about snow ruining your winter golf plans. With winter temperatures in the mid-60s and low temps dipping to an average of mid 40s, golf is a year-round sport in Florida.

In the summertime, snag a morning tee time to beat the warm temperatures and possible afternoon rain showers. Wrapping up your round midday and have time to explore area breweries or plan a visit to the World Golf Hall of Fame & Museum.


Wildlife Sightings

While the fairways may be a place of escape for golfers, it is also a place of quiet for wildlife too. From egrets to turtles and even the occasional alligator – you are sure to discover area wildlife as you make your way along the course.

But have no fear – keep your distance, play through the hole and remember it is their home too. The golf course is a great sanctuary for animals, paired with pristine greens, water and free from a lot of foot traffic too.


Oceanfront Holes

From Amelia Island to Palm Coast, Northeast Florida has 35 holes that feature ocean views – you certainly can’t say that about other destinations! 

For a challenge, play the newly redesigned Ocean Course at Hammock Beach Resort where six holes overlook the Atlantic Ocean.
