Due largely to nearly year-round playability, Florida is easily the country’s golf capital. Right here in St. Pete/Clearwater, golfers will find several challenging courses.
Considered one of the area’s best-kept secrets, the Donald Ross-designed Dunedin Golf Club offers a traditional course at an amazing value. Speaking of value, the Mangrove Bay municipal course in St. Petersburg is the area’s busiest course, with well-maintained greens and a straightforward design. Also in St. Petersburg, the Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club is a picture-perfect, par-72 course attached to an equally spectacular resort.
And, of course, who can forget about the impressive Copperhead Course at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor? Be a spectator in the spring here at the PGA TOUR’s Valspar Championship, when 144 PGA TOUR golfers tee up to compete for the top prize.
