Golf season has officially started in Florida! Although, did it ever really stop? If you live somewhere that is still buried under snow (like us!), we bet you are itching to play some golf…we know we are. We are shipping golf clubs to Florida as you read this!
Why wait another few weeks until spring? Head south and play at some of the most beautiful courses the United States has to offer.
We have been shipping golf clubs to Florida for more than a decade. It’s the best way to travel with golf clubs. Instead of hauling golf clubs to the airport, worrying that the airline is going to lose them, waiting at the baggage claim or hoping they fit into your rental car, ship golf clubs ahead to your resort or golf course.
We took our golf club shipping data and found the most popular courses golfers are shipping their clubs to in Florida.
These 5 courses are not a comprehensive look at the Florida golf course landscape, however, these were the most popular ones our clients are shipping golf clubs to. Remember to also consider shipping golf clubs home from your trip as well. We can pick them up directly from the golf course.
The Breakers, Palm Beach
This beautiful resort has two championship courses. One course is a par 70 that was actually Florida’s first 18 hole golf course! Ten miles away from this course is The Breakers Rees Jones Course. It is one of the best courses in the southeastern US. This resort is also perfect for families! If parents play golf with a child between 5-16 years of age, it’s only $85. If these courses are a little daunting for you, take a lesson at their John Webster Golf Academy.
The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples
This resort is home to the The Tiburon golf course. With two courses and 36 holes, this championship course has a unique design with no rough. This resort is also perfect for families as they offer golf camps to entertain your little ones as you golf. If you want to up your golf club game as well, they have a TaylorMade Performance Lab that provides custom clubs to golfers. They will analyze your swing and and use data to design a specific club or set made for just you. We recommend taking advantage of this cool technology and shipping golf clubs home from your trip.
Fiddler’s Creek, Naples
Naples is home to many beautiful golf courses and this is no exception. The Creek course was designed by Arthur Hills and this 72 par course has won numerous awards by GolfWeek, Links Magazine, and Travel + Leisure among others. It is set within a natural environment and each hole has stunning views – as you can see in the image above. They are currently working on a second course, The Preserve, that will focus on the same design elements as The Creek.
Crandon Park Golf Course, Miami
