GOLF COURSES IN FLORIDA

For 12 months of the year, the golfing enthusiast will find the golf courses in South Florida open and challenging. And from May through October the golf courses are never crowded, you can pick your tee time and be assured of a leisurely round. Also, many of our private courses are open to the public during these months. Throughout Florida there are more than 1,000 courses available catering to every level of player. Currently, there are over 40 golf courses in the Marco Island - Naples area, with more being constructed each year. The Southeast coast offers more than 100 courses

Timacuan Golf and Country Club was built in 1987 and was originally designed by a Ron Garl. In 1996 the course was renovated by architect Bobby Weed and today it is ranked in the top 14 in the state of Florida. Timacuan's other accolades include having been chosen as one of the most golf-friendly courses for women by Golf for Women Magazine. Bobby Weed's redesign encompassed many elements of the course and ensured that all players will have an enjoyable round of golf. Timacuan also features a large driving range and putting green. Par is 71 and the course plays close to 7,000 yards from the back tees. Timacuan's unique features include a links-style front nine and a Carolina feel complete with gorgeous pines and lakes on the back nine. Timacuan Golf and Country Club also has a lighted practice facility and is home to the Mike Bender Golf Academy. Mike Bender is a two time North Florida PGA Teacher of the Year, and is ranked by Golf Magazine as one of the Top 100 Instructors and Golf Digest as one of the top 50 Instructors in America.

Unlike other Orlando golf courses, the Royal St. Cloud is free of any residential developments and offers a pure golf experience. The design features four sets of tees and from the blue tee offers a championship length of 7,111 yards and a 74.6 rating, all on flawless fairways and silky-smooth Tifeagle greens. Its motto, as printed above the entrance to the club house is "Original Golf Played Here", and indeed the Royal St. Cloud features original style golf at its unpretentious best. Bill Filson is the Director of Golf and since 2002 co-owner of this facility. Bill has an extensive teaching background. He has personally studied under some of the top-ranked teaching professionals and brings 12 years of teaching experience that featured beginners to PGA tour professionals. Bill has consistently been a top-ranked PGA Professional. The Royal St. Cloud's teaching staff is complemented by Dave Rummels who brings 17 years of valuable PGA Tour experience with him and can share advice from the "Tour" with the students.

THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Ranked as #5 among Golf Magazine's "Top 100 Courses You Can Play," this TPC Sawgrass Golf Course is the home of THE PLAYERS Championship in March, which hosts an elite international field of past champions including Tiger Woods, Davis Love III, Fred Couples, Jim Furyk and Vijay Singh. Treacherous and sand waste areas, watery oppositions on every hole, and Scottish link style bunkers are signatures of this famed par-72 course.

Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. The newest challenge at Sawgrass, fashioned in the grand tradition of the Tournament Players Club as a tough complement to THE PLAYERS Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass. Water comes into play on 6,838 yards along 18 holes, while fairways filled with hills and valleys create additional challenges.

Sawgrass Country Club. Ranked among the top 25 best resort courses by Golf Digest. Marriott golfers encounter water on 24 of the 27 holes throughout the medley of challenging nines stretched over 10,340 yards. The 7,072-yard, par-72 East/West rotation has earned the time-honored distinction as "the original Sawgrass."

Ponte Vedra Country Club. Teeming with natural wildlife, Ponte Vedra is a short, tight course featuring water on every hole and requiring straight tee shots by great iron players. The 13th hole — a 378-yard, par-4 straightaway — necessitates the fiercest water negotiation. Roughs punctuate the right fairway of this Jacksonville golf course, and a lake ribbons along the left from the tee to skirt the front of a shallow, two-tiered green with a bunkered elevation.

Marsh Landing Country Club. Another Ed Seay design, this Sawgrass golf course is often likened to a 6,841-yard nature preserve. Imaginative routing of the nines has created two visually contrasting personalities — the front nine, which weaves through pockets of sequestered Intracoastal marshes and is dotted will tall timbers — and the back nine carved from even thicker lagoons threaded with tidal marshes.
