Florida Best Golf Courses

Best golf courses in Florida

There is a lot more to Florida than sun, sea, golf and Disney - but not unsurprisingly, these are the major ingredients that most visitors are looking for, and they can be found in abandunce here in the Sunshine State. Dig a little deeper and Florida opens up into a spectacular nature park, with a fabulous variety of wildlife, flora and fauna - just waiting to be discovered on land or at sea. 

The southern part of the state has much in keeping with the tropical character of Latin America; in the north it is more related to the temperate nature of North America. Whatever your reason for coming to Florida (and golf is an important one for many people) the world seems to agree on one thing, this is a great place to have a vacation.

As you can imagine, with many people retiring to this State and millions of foreign visitors every year, the abundance of golf courses is huge. The Jacksonville area, around Orlando, Miami, Palm Beach and the Tampa area all have clusters of courses to keep your golfing appetite truly satisfied, outside these areas there is still golf, golf, golf.

To make the most out of your golf trip, look up the location of the courses on the Florida golf map. It will help you with your planning to play the best courses during your vacation.
Where2Golf has applied a rating to each golf course visited. The rating scale, 5 (highest) to 1 (lowest), attempts to provide an indication of the golfing experience you can expect at each rated course.
