Florida Golf Package
Florida has been described as a long fairway surrounded by sand
and water. With more than 1,000 courses in the state, Florida disproves
the old saying that "the grass is always greener in the other
fellow's yard." Florida's greens stack up with anyone's.
The state is blessed with some of the top-rated courses
in the country, along with resorts that are renowned the world over.
Golf is such a central part of the Florida lifestyle that it's sometimes
easy to forget just how many good places there are to pursue the
royal and ancient game here. The PGA Tour comes calling every spring,
and it's possible to duplicate the professionals' swing through
the state, staying and playing at the likes of Miami's Doral Golf
Resort & Spa, Orlando's Bay Hill Lodge or the Tournament Players
Club at Sawgrass. The LPGA and the Senior Tour also play multiple
events in the Sunshine State, from Palm Beach to Naples to Tampa.
But swing a golf club almost anyplace at the map
and you'll find a great track or three. Florida not only has fine
golf resorts in every corner of the state, but some of the best
of the new "daily fee" courses in the country.
With all this great golf in Florida, why would
you go anywhere else?
