Northeast Florida has been like home to golfers and golf spectators alike. Comfortable temperatures that last far into spring make this the perfect climate to grow golf courses, and the vibrant small town lifestyle means that you’re close to everything that you need, and far from the rush of the city. It helps that The Players Championship is played nearby, as well as TPC Sawgrass. The World Golf Village provides a fun way to learn and connect over the history and social practices of the sport, and is a great place to take the kids, too. Grab your clubs and come see what makes Jacksonville so wonderful for golf.
