Florida in Fall: Great for Golfing

Daytona Beach is a favorite destination when it comes to teeing off. It’s even been named among the best places to play in the nation by the likes of Golf Digest and Canadian Traveler. Whether you’re experienced or a novice, getting in a game of golf during your next visit to Sea Shells Beach Club is a great way to relax and enjoy the scenery.

A combination of great upcoming fall weather and 20-plus premier courses in the area make Daytona Beach the perfect place to pick and choose the perfect day on the links.

Here are a few fan-favorite courses in the Daytona area.

Venetian Bay (New Smyrna Beach Golf)

One of the most uniquely developed courses, Venetian Bay has very little housing around it’s holes (several holes have no housing on either side), allowing golfers to really enjoy the scenery. Great for experienced golfers and newcomers alike.

LPGA International

The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) International has both its home and two courses in Daytona Beach. These courses are designed for the more seasoned golfer with extensive use of water and sand for a challenging but memorable experience.  Where to eat: Malcom’s Bar and Grill.

Cypress Head Golf Club

Consistently rated among the top public golf courses in Daytona, Cypress Head offers a great value with tee times available to the general public seven days a week. Cypress Head is also the only club in the area with FootGolf, the game played just like golf, but with a full sized ball (like a soccer ball).

Victoria Hills Golf Club

Reminiscent of the Carolinas with its northern-style scenery, Victoria Hills is lined with hundreds of Augusta pines and Oak hammocks. Challenges take players through rolling hills and pristine lakes. Also not for the novice, sand traps concealed by shrubbery, dense forests and the occasionally tight green will test golfers. Where to eat: Mulligan’s Tavern & Grille

Halifax Plantation

Expert golfers, are you up for the challenge? Hallifax is reputed to be one of Daytona’s most challenging and beautiful courses with back trees rolling greens that can be difficult to read. Since you may be here for lunch and dinner, here’s where to eat: Tavern by the Green.
