From the Golden State to the Sunshine State

This week we move from California to Florida.

Florida is home to more than 1000 golf courses, and hurricanes and oppressive humidity not withstanding, the warm climate means you can play Florida's world class courses year round.

From resort golf as most of us know it (Reunion) to resort golf as we wish it was everywhere (Streamsong), to the venue for the 5th Major (Sawgrass) Florida's golf courses are as diverse as they are plentiful.

With so many courses to choose from, how do you know where to spend your money? To find out, we turned to TheGrint and to real golfers just like you.


About Our Rankings

To generate our rankings, we used data from TheGrint, a golf handicap and stat tracking service that also allows golfers to rate the courses they play. Here are the pertinent details:

  • Ranking derived from over 200,000 golf course reviews
  • Only reviews from the last 365 days are considered
  • A course must have a minimum of 30 reviews is required in order to qualify for ranking

Nearly every aspect of a golf course review is subjective and there's always going to be a difference of opinion, so healthy (and hopefully polite) debate is to be expected.

All great tracks but you need a reverse mortgage just to pay the green fees.
Let’s grow the game??????

9 out of 10 however Isleworth, lake Nona, trump, Seminole, dyes valley, and ocean reef are better than all of those in Florida.

Playing both Streamsong courses for the first time in two weeks. Buddies trip, with a stop at LPGA on the way down. Psyched!

Played all but the 2 at streamsong. My favorite is copperhead. If any of you get a chance to play copperhead you’ll love it.

5 out of the 10. Streamsong was an amazing place.

Have played several times, I prefer the Red course many times over.

Snakes everywhere!!

StreamSong has great summer stay and play deals if you don’t my the heat. Also the island course (@ innisbrook) is better IMO over copperhead. Copperhead is fun the week or two after the tour stop as you still get course in PGA shape. Honestly we are pretty spoiled down here in FL as we have a ton of quality golf courses to play on.
