Your golf-loving group can choose from a wide array of stay-and-play packages. Plus, easy flights from Daytona Beach International Airport and last-minute oceanfront accommodations make vacation travel a breeze. Rest assured that nobody in your group will ever be far from a delicious meal, thanks to the wealth of restaurants located near the courses — and often on-site. There are a number of renowned courses for you to check out; here are some area favorites:
Daytona Beach Golf Club
The Daytona Beach Golf Club has been a popular choice in the region since 1921. Donald Ross designed the original 18 holes of the South Course, while the North Course is a Lloyd Clifton creation (and is considered to be the more demanding of the two courses). Tee shots are considered challenging in approach, but ultimately forgiving. Enjoy the comprehensive practice facilities, which feature a 10,000-foot putting green, a new lighted driving range and more. Daytona Beach Golf Club is the place to go if you seek excellent service at a great value.
LPGA International is a golf club that adheres to a standard of excellence, and it is known for its challenging courses, high-quality service and immaculate conditions. The club offers two markedly different courses — the Hills and the Jones, named for their respective designers. Golf Magazine has named both courses to its list of top 10 courses to play. And, as home course to the Ladies Professional Golf Association, LPGA International is a favorite of tour players and golf amateurs alike.
Pelican Bay Golf Club
Featuring two distinct courses, this premier country club has hosted PGA Tour events and legends such as Arnold Palmer. The golf club’s two courses are within driving distance of one another, but each has its own clubhouse and grill for when hunger strikes. Come for a visually stunning golf experience and a satisfying post-game meal with your friends. Many visitors call this a must-play in Daytona Beach — we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
These are just a few favorites among more than two dozen local courses open to the public in Daytona Beach. View a full line-up of options at DaytonaBeach.golf.
