Things To Do

Golf

Find the best golf vacation for you with the wide-variety of courses along Florida’s Sports Coast. Home to some of the best courses in Florida—including those designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer—your golf getaway will be filled with rolling fairways, well-maintained greens and varying wilderness areas that make every round of golf both challenging and enjoyable.

Saddlebrook Resort

With beautiful resort suites surrounding the two picturesque Arnold Palmer-designed courses, Saddlebrook Resort is the best pick for a stay-and-play golf retreat along Florida’s Sports Coast.  With the golf legend himself overseeing the design of both of Saddlebrook’s golf courses, it’s no surprise this is a well-known destination for world-class golf. Both courses feature rolling fairways, well-maintained greens and wilderness areas full of cypress, pine and palm trees. Contoured to resemble a rolling New England course, the Palmer Golf Course is a masterpiece without equal. Here, you’ll find generous driving areas and greens that are firm, fast and undulating. Facing the green from the slanting fairways, the small elevated emerald islands are framed by white-face bunkers, azure ponds and gently swaying palm trees. On this course, some holes require strength, but all reward finesse. The Saddlebrook Golf Course features a more natural Florida-style of golf with very few elevation changes and water hazards on 14 holes. The emerald-ribbon fairways, white-faced bunkers, lush greens and low hanging Spanish moss will steal your heart as you challenge yourself here. Don’t miss out on this amazing course, the 425-yard signature 18th hole is famously tricky, and you’ll want to tell this golfing story for years to come. 

It’s no surprise this is a well-known destination for world-class golf.

If you’re looking to improve your game with more specific and targeted methods, the resort is also home to the state-of-the-art Saddlebrook Golf Training Center and Range designed by Mike Angus. The Saddlebrook Golf Academy is one of the leading golf schools in Florida and provides comprehensive training and development programs, lessons, clinics and camps for golfers at all skill levels.

Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club

With two beautiful courses at this Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club, you can golf for a full day without leaving the grounds. The South Course was designed by Tom Lehman and features a great layout with wide fairways. Watch out for the ponds and lakes along the course, and the uncharacteristic elevation changes will test your skills. The North Course is even hillier than the South Course. Designed by Kurt Sandness, you’ll want to take the time on this course to admire the scenic views—the tee at the second hole even has five miles of visibility on a clear day.

Timber Greens Golf Course

Florida's Sport Coast

One of the best things about golfing is feeling closer to nature, and Timber Greens Golf Course is perfect for golfers looking for that. The course here is surrounded by nature preserves, so there’s no doubt you’re playing golf in Florida. The fairways are lined with native oaks, and you can expect to spot wildlife while you’re playing—the 18th hole features a forced carry over the Starkey Wilderness Preserve.

Scotland Yards Golf Club

Get a golfing experience that’s unlike anything you’ll find here Florida. Scotland Yards Golf Club is a links-style course that provides a classic Scottish-style golfing experience to Florida’s Sports Coast. Unlike most other golf courses in Florida, Scotland Yards features very little water hazards along the course. Instead, bunkers, soft-rolling hills and undulating greens provide the challenge here.
