Best Golf Courses in Florida
July 16, 2020
In the sun there is no shortage of great golf courses to play. With everything from all-inclusive resort courses to some of the most challenging and enjoyable public golf courses in the Southeast, Florida is one of the must-visit states for serious golfers and casual players. Below, we've rounded up five golf courses in Florida that consistently rank players as their favorites and recommend them to everyone, including locals and traveling golfers looking for a new golf course to try.
Orange County National – Crooked Cat
Crooked Cat is one of the two 18-hole courses at Orange County National and is a unique beast. With elements of a traditional Scottish links layout, combined with an open, fluid design, Crooked Cat is a unique Florida golf course. Native heather grass and other vegetation help create challenging angles in some of your quirky shots, but striking it right will reward you with a good look at generous sloping greens.

Dye Course at PGA Golf Club
Course management and careful selection of strokes are the name of the game at the PGA Golf Club & # 39; s Dye Course. Bunkers abound in this well-known Pete Dye design, along with wavy greens and plenty of rough that beckons any golfer with a tendency to overshoot. But if you're looking for a challenge and a chance to test your club choice, this is one of the best golf courses in Florida to try.
Dunes at Sandridge Golf Club
Vero Beach, the Sandridge Golf Club in Florida, offers two great golf courses to play, and the Dunes Golf Course is one of the favorites among locals and golfers from around the state. The Dunes course winds around an old ridge that was once used for mining many years ago and combines rolling hills on the back half with a tough island green on the front nine and plenty of challenges in between to help you sharpen your game to keep.

The Florida Club
The Florida Club, located in Stuart, Florida, combines the classic layout and style of the Florida golf course with undulating fairways, well-placed water hazards and bunkers, and even a peninsula of greenery at 16 for an extra bit of challenge. Multiple tee options make it a great course for golfers of any skill level looking to test their game.
Waterlefe Golf & River Club
For championship golf, about an hour outside of Tampa, Florida, Waterlefe Golf & River Club is a highly recommended choice. Generous, sloping fairways offer golfers a comfortable view, but don't be fooled – nearly 60 sand catchers and various water hazards dotted around the course help keep your shots under control. Golfers can take it easy from the first tee, but as your round progresses, the challenges become more and more difficult. An excellent course for anyone looking to play a rewarding round of golf in Florida.
