Welcome to Florida's First Coast of Golf

If this is your first time looking at Northeast Florida as a golfing destination, you have a new understanding of the phrase "Like a kid in a candy store." Northeast Florida is a candy store chock-full of lip-smacking golf. Woulyou like some play along the ocean, a round on a cottish-style links course, some knee-knocking carries over marsh and water?

How about one half of the round near the Intracoastal Waterway and the other half in a pine forest? Or 18 holes so hilly, gas carts are required? No matter what, your favorite flavors of play are here in Northeast Florida. With limited time, you would want to be sure to play those whose style you'll enjoy the most. That's why there's Florida's First Coast of Golf, to guide you in those decisions.

Even with over 30 clubs available, it's not just quantity, but quality of the golf experience which will create your memories. Northeast Florida has several courses known worldwide, designed by the most revered names in golf. But you can play courses "famous" only to the locals and you'll discover they too were designed by some of the world's top architects.

The TPC at Sawgrass is our most famous. Designer? Pete Dye. Then there's St. John's Golf & Country Club: not exactly a household word on the pro circuit, right? Architect? World-renowned Clyde Johnston. Lots of chocolate truffles where you might expect a gum drop. Sam Snead and Gene Sarazen collaborated with Bobby Weed on The Slammer and Squire, while Arnie & Jack were the architects of The King & Bear, both at the World Golf Hall of Fame.
