Daytona Beach’s Spring Golf Season Prepares to Kick into High Gear

Three Outstanding Golf Packages to visit the “World’s Most Famous Beach

With the running of the 60th Great American Race, the 2018 Daytona 500 completed, February is  just the beginning of the good times for golfers in and around Daytona Beach, home to 28  challenging golf courses, Daytona Beach’s spring golf season offers players a multitude of packages that are long on quality and value. With average high temperatures of 71 in February, 74 in March, and 79 in April, Daytona Beach’s weather is as appealing as its golf offerings, where golf is played here 365 days a year.
With the 2018 golf season on the immediate horizon, here are a sampling of Daytona Beach packages players are flocking to:

The appropriately named “FEELS LIKE HOME” package is a 3-night, 3-round deal that features accommodations at Homewood Suites with golf at Arthur Hills designed Cypress Head Golf Club, the Rees Jones Course at LPGA International and the Gary Player designed Cypress Knoll Golf & Country Club. The Jones Course is, by consensus, one of Florida’s best public courses, Cypress Head is a municipal course that offers a challenging premium round, while Cypress Knoll provides a distinctive country club experience. The “FEELS LIKE HOME” package starts at $370

The Plaza Resort & Spa, Daytona Beach’s Grand Resort, is an oceanfront resort property offering a 3-night, 3-round deal that includes golf at the Bill Amick designed Halifax Plantation, the Arthur Hills Course at LPGA International and Lloyd Clifton’s superb Indigo Lakes Golf Club. To put the quality of that trio into perspective, the Hills Course and Indigo Lakes have hosted LPGA Tour events, and Halifax Plantation has long been regarded as one of the area’s finest. The Plaza Resort & Spa DEAL starts at $370.

Holiday Inn Daytona Beach LPGA Blvd., located just minutes from Daytona Beach’s acclaimed courses, has a 3-night, 3-round special that starts at just $337.  The package includes golf at another Bill Amick masterpeice, Spruce Creek Country Club, home of America’s largest fly-in community, the Hills Course at LPGA International and Cypress Head.

Best of all, Daytona Beach’s golf package combinations are nearly endless (and interchangeable). The area is also home to three courses that are part of the Historic Florida Golf Trail – New Smyrna Golf Club, The South Course at Daytona Beach Golf Club and its hidden gem, Riviera Country Club – in addition, a multitude of modern 4-star designs, such as Victoria Hills and Venetian Bay are nearby.

Whether players are looking for classic golf course architecture – New Smyrna Golf Course and Daytona Beach’s South Course are Donald Ross designs – or if you want a more contemporary test, Daytona Beach has something for everyone.
