Plan Your Golf Trip Around this Year’s TaxSlayer Gator Bowl

How do you make your golf vacation to Northeast Florida even better? Add a little pigskin.

The 2020 TaxSlayer Gator Bowl is on January 2, 2020 at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, FL (home of the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars). With over 70 public and private courses throughout the area and one of the biggest football games in the region, you’ve got yourself an awesome add-on event for your golf trip to Northeast Florida.

 

Courses Near TIAA Bank Field

There are over a dozen courses located about half an hour away from the stadium so that you can get in a nearby round of golf before the 7 p.m. kickoff. Courses include Hidden Hills Golf Club, Bent Creek Golf Course, Golf Club at South Hampton, St. Johns Golf & Country Club and Cimarrone Golf Club.

 

Football Season Makes for Excellent Golf

Planning your golf vacation around the game means you get the bonus of winter golf in Florida, which means exclusive winter packages, lodging offers and crisp, beachy weather. And although the game is in Jacksonville, you aren’t far from the championship courses of Amelia Island, Clay County, Palm Coast, St. Augustine or Ponte Vedra.

 

Go From Holes to Hops

You’ll be able to take full advantage of the 19th hole or venture over to a nearby brewery to grab a traditional post-round drink. 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) all along Florida’s First Coast.

Championship courses, crisp weather, top breweries and one of the biggest games in the region—your 2020 golf trip won’t plan itself!
