Play Golf the Year Round in Florida:

All of Florida's golf courses are open the year-round, even in the Northeast - the average mean temperature there is 70 degrees, although I've been in St. Augustine when it hit below freezing. Even so, the courses were open and playable.

The best time to go: The Low Season is Always Best: In South Florida, the low season is from May through October when the courses are rarely crowded.

How to get There:

Four major air terminals, and a dozen regional airports put all of Florida's great courses within easy reach: Miami, Orlando, Jacksonville and Pensacola. Look for the best airline and car rentals using the links below to compare prices on airfares and car rentals of all ratings:
