If you're planning a trip to Northeast, Florida, you may want to enjoy the lovely summer weather on the golf course. Northeast Florida is home to many world-class golf courses where pros come to play and even stay! Many professional golfers call Florida home and take advantage of our coastal courses.
Here are the top five courses to consider for a golf outing:
1. Hidden Hills Golf Club
Known for its Arnold Palmer signature design, Hidden Hills Golf Club has the curves and rolling hills to make it a breathtaking course. The site of the Greater Jacksonville Open, the forerunner to the modern-day PLAYERS Championship, Hidden Hills is a great experience for golfers and spectators alike. You can drive or walk this beautifully landscaped course and afterward, sit or grab a bite to go at the Hills Grill.
2. Palm Harbor Golf Club
Over the river and through the woods to Palm Harbor Golf Club you go! This luxurious course meanders through big beautiful oak and palm trees. With a deluxe practice area, complete with a driving range, putting green, & chipping green, the team at Clifton Ezell & Clifton Golf Design really thought of it all. The Palm Harbor Golf Club has been vote People’s Choice for the Best Golf Course in Flagler County 9 consecutive years.
3. World Golf Village Resort
The World of Golf Village boasts two courses designed by Hall of Famers. From the legendary minds of Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer comes King & Bear. Definitely a driver’s course, King & Bear is the best of both worlds. Complete with a links-style front nine and a traditional Florida marsh back nine, this course is sure to excite both amateurs and professionals. Also at the resort is Slammer & Squire. Bobby Weed collaborated with Hall of Famers, Gene Sarazen and Sam Snead to create the course with an open layout and contoured greens.
Another must-see at the resort is the World Golf Hall of Fame! Learn more about the history of the game by exploring an array of exhibits. Tickets provide admission for two consecutive days and access to the Challenge Hole, a special opportunity designed to be reminiscent of the infamous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass.
4. Oak Marsh at Omni Amelia Island Resort
The Atlantic Ocean sea breeze provides a unique challenge for golfers at the Oak Marsh at Omni Amelia Island Resort. Pete Dye went the extra mile to protect the natural beauty of Amelia Islands. The course, built in 1972 shortly after the completion of the Harbour Town Golf Links at Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, is noted for its tight fairways and small greens, meandering along serpentine salt marsh creeks and through the moss draped heritage oaks for which Amelia Island is famous. At par 72, this 6,500-yard course has 14 holes with water hazards and numerous bulk-headed greens. A variety of bunkers are placed throughout the course to add to the challenge, and a natural approach has been maintained as well with the use of coquina shell cart paths, native plant life and preserved habitats for the local wildlife.
5. Eagle Landing Golf Club
A Clyde Johnston design, Eagle Landing Golf Club is the signature course of Clay County. The course boasts many classic style holes from around the world. The pro shop also has an extensive his and her selection with friendly staff ready to assist you. While visiting the area, make sure to stop by Pinglehead Brewery for a refreshing handcrafted brew after you play.
