A Guide to Florida Golf Vacations

If the weather has you itching for a vacation, consider a Florida golf vacation. With its abundant sunshine, Florida is a great place to play a little golf and unwind from the day to day routine of everyday life. Between golf and the other Florida attractions, you’re sure to find something that pleases everyone.

Where To Play

Florida golf courses have been designed by some of the game’s most accomplished course designers. Extra care has been taken with the manicured courses and you’ll find over 500 unique holes to play in the Central Florida area alone.

Some of the many Florida golf courses include the Diamondback Golf Club, the Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club, The Club at Eaglebrooke, Huntington Hills Golf and Country Club and the Schalamar Creek Golf and Country Club. Many of these courses have been highly rated by Golf Digest, Travel & Leisure and Florida Golf Central magazines.

If you’re really ambitious, you can try to play a different course every day, but make sure to bring comfortable shoes. The last thing you want is to be limping around the green with blisters on your feet.

Where To Stay

You’ll have plenty of choice of where to stay in Central Florida. If you love the outdoors, combine a Florida fishing and golf trip with staying at a local campground. You may be camping, but this definitely isn’t roughing it. You’ll find amenities like internet service, laundry facilities and charming cottages. If you travel with an RV or tent, this is also the place for you.

If camping isn’t your thing, head to one of the many hotels or bed and breakfasts. They range from the typical, large chain hotel to smaller, family-owned properties that will make you feel right at home. There are accommodations for the entire family, or you can plan a romantic getaway for two. If your vacation partner isn’t as excited about the Florida golf courses as you are, choose a hotel with a spa to make it a relaxing vacation for both of you.

With so many different places to stay, you’re sure to find the perfect home away from home for your vacation. After just a few days, you won’t want to leave.

Other Florida Attractions

Aside from Florida golf and fishing, there’s plenty to do if you’re traveling with someone with a different idea of fun. For the kids you’ll find children’s museums, an airplane museum, miniature golf and water parks.

If you’re not traveling with children or if you’re just looking for a more adult day, support the local economy by shopping at one of the many malls or shopping centers. For a day of culture, spend some time at an art museum, take in a play or musical or enjoy a jazz concert at the Lakeland Center.

With so much to do on your Florida vacation, you’re sure to find something to please every vacation-goer. Just don’t forget the sunscreen!
