Practicing your swing and soaking up the sun are just two reasons to take a Florida vacation. The coastal state has some of the finest golf resorts with amenities and lodging to keep you on the green longer. All five of these Florida golf resorts we’ve selected have everything you need and more – you’ll never even have to leave.
Hammock Beach, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort – Palm Coast, FL
In need of a golf retreat? Hammock Beach in Palm Coast, FL is the place to stay and play. It not only offers rooms and suites but also gives you the option of renting one of their vacation rentals. The oceanfront golf destination is also popular with golf lovers for its two courses, the Ocean Course and Conservatory Course. The Jack Nicklaus-designed Ocean Course overlooks the Atlantic while the Conservatory Course provides the distinction of Florida’s longest course. It’s one of just six golf resorts ever to receive Golf Digest’s “2018 Best Golf Resorts in Florida” designation.
Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort – Fernandina Beach, FL
The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort has a lot to offer golfers as well. They have two immaculate courses, the Oak Marsh course designed by Pet Dye and their Long Point course.
Oak Marsh is distinctive for its tight fairways and small greens, salt marsh creeks, and many moss-draped oaks that Amelia Island is famous for. Long Point is equally impressive with its beautiful oaks and marshes but it also has back-to-back oceanfront par 3s. Among its accolades are being named one of the “Top 50 Courses in Florida” by Golfweek and one of the “Best Places to Play” by Golf Digest.
But this resort has lots more to offer than just golf. It’s family and kid-friendly, with a spa, pools, and fitness center.
Trump National Doral Miami – Miami, FL
Miami, FL is home to one of the best golf resorts in the entire state, the Trump National Doral Miami. It’s often called one of the most luxurious golf resorts in the U.S. because of everything the property offers: a luxury hotel, suites, fines restaurants and lounges, spa, and health club.
It has a total of four 18-hole courses: the Blue Monster, the Red Tiger, the Golden Palm, and the Silver Fox. Needless to say, you will never get bored here, and you are sure to be challenged with each courses’ unique design.
