Whenever I mention the word ‘Florida’ in any conversation, the topic most often turns to golf vacations and favorite golf resorts. The Sunshine State and golfing are practically synonymous! Golf is a way of life here for both Florida residents and tourists alike.
Golf in Florida is pretty much a year round outdoor activity because of the plentiful sunshine and beautiful warm weather. The golf resorts in Florida are a very popular tourist attraction because of this. Many golf enthusiasts who live in the colder Northern States and Canada venture here for their holidays during the frigid winter months. We have made Florida golf resorts a winter vacation destination more than a few times ourselves. Whenever we are there, we enjoy the diverse range of people visiting from all parts of the world. One thing we all seem to have in common is the love for the game of golf, especially while staying in luxurious accommodations at a classy hotel!
Florida Golf Courses
Florida is home to almost 1500 beautiful and scenic golf courses on every type of terrain that will provide a good challenge for any level of golfer. Popular golf hot spots include Disney World, Orlando, Jacksonville, Boca Raton, Sarasota, Naples, Fort Myers and West Palm Beach to name only a few. FLA is yet another golfers paradise. Your dream Florida golf vacation doesn’t have to break the bank either as tee times are available all over the State at reasonable prices.
Expert golf instruction is available for keen golfers whether they are at beginner or professional levels of skill. Even world renowned golf instructor David Ledbetter resides in Florida year round.

The Florida resorts provide the perfect vacation getaway for singles and families.

The scenery in Florida is stunning and sight seeing is one of the most popular tourist attractions.
Even if some family members aren’t big golf fans, there is still a lot to do. The Disney World theme park in Orlando remains a perennial favorite for the whole family. Many people visit Florida for some of the world’s best fishing. Others come for exhilarating water sports and yet others would rather lounge by the swimming pool or indulge in a relaxing massage at one of the many luxury spas. There really is something for everyone.
