Three Outstanding Golf Packages Are Helping Drive Interest in Destination
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — With the Daytona 500 less than two weeks away, the eyes of the sports world will be turning to Central Florida, but for golfers, the end of the Great American Race is the just the beginning of the good times.
Home to 28 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, 79 in April and 85 in May, Daytona Beach’s weather is as appealing as its golf offerings.
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 and golf at Cypress Head Golf Club, the Jones Course at LPGA International and 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 premium round, while Cypress Knoll provides a country club experience. The “Feels Like Home” package starts at $370.
Plaza Resort & Spa, an oceanfront resort property, is offering a 3-night, 3-round deal that includes golf at Halifax Plantation, the Hills Course at LPGA International and 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 best. The Plaza Resort & Spa deal starts at $370.
Holiday Inn Daytona Beach LPGA Blvd., located just minutes from Daytona Beach’s most acclaimed courses, has a 3-night, 3-round special that starts at just $337. The package includes golf at 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 Riviera Country Club – in addition a multitude of modern 4-star designs, such as Victoria Hills and Venetian Bay.
