Places to Play
The best courses you can play in Florida
Florida golf gets a bad rap—it’s too flat and uninteresting, you’ve probably heard. With more than 1,450 courses (including nine-holers), sure, there are a number of tired if not monotonous layouts. The courses on this list, though, belong in a separate category.
We pulled our panelists’ scores from our most recent America’s 100 Greatest and Best in State rankings to determine the best courses you can play in Florida. We stopped this list at 30 courses but could’ve easily went to 50.
There’s a reason Florida is the most popular destination for golfers residing in northern states—and not just because it has the most golf out of any state. There’s some damn good golf—you just have to know where to look.
Scroll on to learn more about each of these courses and read reviews from our course-ranking panelists. We hope you enjoy our new, searchable course database, Places to Play.
