Scottsdale: No other golf destination offers the variety, consistent sunshine or as many superb golf courses.
With two, top-notch championship golf courses golf on Grand Bahama Island is as good as it gets.
The Florida Golf Trail seems to operate on a different premise to its peers in Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana and all the others on the ever-growing list of states with trails, paths and traces. Although the FGT courses are, for the most-part, open to the public, and are also accessible to resort or hotel guests through a variety of Golf Specials, the idea behind the Trail is to sell across-the-board memberships - you buy one and play them all. For you and me, though, as golf travelers, the courses along the Trail include some of the best in the state and thus are more than a little enticing, especially with some very heavyweight designers involved, including Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, Robert Trent Jones etc. The Florida Golf Trail is a viable option for a winter golf getaway.

The Greater Jacksonville area is not as high on the list of great golf destinations as it should be. Jacksonville, and the surrounding area, from Ponte Vedra to Amelia Island to St. Augustine - Florida's First Coast, has a lot to offer. A three or four-day getaway will put you well within reach of all the beaches, world-class shopping and dining, and a whole host of attractions and amenities, including the World Golf Hall of Fame, PGA Tour Headquarters, LPGA Headquarters and more than 200 championship golf courses. Jacksonville, and Florida's Palm Coast, are easily reached by road or air, either from Jacksonville or Daytona. The list of Jacksonville golf courses is extensive and includes some of the most famous layouts in the world, TPC Sawgrass, for instance. The consistently good weather and the easy to reach location make the Jacksonville area Golf Courses an obvious first choice for a golf vacation or getaway.

Dallas - America's new 1st city of golf? Hmmmm... I wonder. Well, Golf Digest certainly thinks so, because in 2012 it named Dallas its "Top City for Golf," citing its quality, quantity and cost of public golf.
For sure, Dallas has become an extremely popular golf getaway. With an airport featuring direct service from innumerable markets, a temperate climate and some of the most sought after playing experiences in the country, golfers are now traveling deep into the heart of Texas to tee-it-up.
