The Jones Course was designed in 1994 Course Designed by Rees Jones Course Stats Par: 72 Black tees: 7,088 yards, 75/142 Blue tees: 6,664 yards, 72.8/141 White tees: 6,240 yards, 70.5/137, 76.4/139 (W) Gold tees: 5,744 yards, 68.1/126, 73.6/134 (W) Red tees: 5,131 yards, 64.9/110, 69.4/121 (W). With wide fairways framed by mounding, the layout is as visually appealing as it is fun to play. Famed architect Rees Jones challenges players to navigate yawning waste bunkers, natural marsh areas and beautiful lakes, and that’s all before they get to some of Central Florida’s best and most undulating greens. The experience on the Jones Course is highlighted by the unforgettable 18th hole, which provides a dramatic conclusion to one of Daytona Beach’s most memorable rounds of golf. With a lake on the left and those mounds on the right, the 388-yard (white tees) par 4 is everything golfers want in finishing a hole.

The Hills Course was designed in 1994 Course Designed by Arthur Hills Course Stats Par: 72 Black tees: 6,984 yards, 74.1/143 Blue tees: 6,594, 72.4/138 White tees: 6,339, 70.7/130, 77.1/144 (W) Gold tees: 5,827 69.2/119, 74.6/138 (W) Red tees: 5,155 yards, 65.8/111, 70.6/121 (W) The Hills Course at LPGA International challenges golfers with fairways lined by beautiful magnolia trees and native pines, providing an experience that occasionally stirs echoes of Pinehurst. With several forced carries and tree lines that punish wayward tee shots, the first shot on a hole is often the most important. On a layout full of memorable holes, the par 5 eighth stands above. Playing from the white tees, water runs up the left side of the 508-yard hole. Long hitters will have the option of going for the green in two, but the putting surface sticks out in the water, meaning there is no room to miss.
