DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Halifax Plantation, one of the Daytona Beach area’s most popular layouts, is reopened after a greens restoration project that has the Bill Amick design in prime condition with the peak golf season on the horizon. Halifax installed all new Champion Ultradwarf Bermudagrass, which is ideally suited to the warm weather that makes Daytona Beach so attractive to golfers. Champion Bermuda has been installed on more than 500 courses in the Southeast, including layouts such as Seminole Golf Club and Pinehurst Resort’s No. 2 course.
The Plantation will hosted a “Members Only” preview the week of October 15 and fully reopened to the public on October 23.
Champion Bermuda will provide a smooth, quick-putting surface at Halifax Plantation, which is home to some of the Daytona Beach’s area’s most undulating greens. Nestled within a magnificent canopy of century-old oaks and tall pines on rolling terrain, Halifax is one of the most picturesque courses along the Central Florida coast, home to the World’s Most Famous Beach.
Daytona Beach is where golfers will find nearly 20 golf courses to enjoy and is one of Florida’s fastest-growing golf destinations as players relish the opportunity to enjoy a trip that delivers good times on and off the course. LPGA International, home to the Jones and Hills layouts, is the area’s most acclaimed facility, and it’s joined by a pair of historic Donald Ross designs in the South Course at Daytona Beach Golf Club and New Smyrna Golf Club.
Off the course, the 23 miles of beaches and Daytona International Speedway are just the start of the good & fast times. The Daytona Beach Ale Trail, a collection of more than 20 craft breweries and taprooms, means a good, cold drink is never far away, and fresh, locally sourced seafood is at the heart of the area’s thriving dining scene.
Daytona Beach’s idyllic weather and an outstanding selection of golf courses make it a near-perfect winter destination. From November through May, the area’s average high temperatures range from a low of 68 degrees Fahrenheit in January to a high of 85 in May, highlighting the appeal of the area’s subtropical climate.
