The state of Florida has been well known for having some of the best golf courses in the world. With so many golf courses in the state, we’ve decided to highlight our top 5 favorite courses in Florida.
1. The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass
Located in Ponte Vedra Beach, the stadium course is one of the most spectacular courses in the Sunshine State. The Players Championship, also known as “The Fifth Major”, is played at this course. No single hole in possibly all of the United States is more popular and recognizable then the 17th Hole at Sawgrass.
2. Seminole Golf Club
For those lucky enough to play this course, you will find a brilliantly designed golf course. One of the tougher courses in Florida, this course is perfect for the seasoned golfer.
3. The Blue Monster at Doral Golf Resort
While the course itself is wonderful, the location of the course is what sets it apart from many of the courses in Florida. Located in Miami, this course has a beautiful landscape and hosts its own professional golf tournament known as The World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.
4. Bay Hill Club and Lodge
Located in Orlando, Florida and owned by the great, Arnold Palmer, this golf course is a beautifully designed spectacle of what a golf course should look like. The golf course hosts the annual Arnold Palmer Invitational.
5. World Woods Golf Club
The reason this golf club has made the list is for the combination of its two golf courses, the Pine Barrens and the Rolling Oaks. The two courses are very different from one another but are both tremendous courses in their own right. You can find this gem in Brooksville, Florida.
