Best Public Golf Courses in Florida

Florida is the 2nd largest US state with the longest coastline of 1,350 miles occupying a 500-mile-long and 160-mile-wide, sandy peninsula between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Overall it is flat with the low point at sea level, and its highest point on the peninsula of 345 feet at Sugarloaf Mountain in Lake Country.

Florida is home to 1,100+ municipal, public, private, military, and resort golf courses, and since 1/5 of Florida's land area is covered by water and the entire land surface sand based, most are dominated by each. The best public golf courses and resorts are located in Miami, Tampa, Naples, Jacksonville, and Orlando within residential and resort communities, but others like the Streamsong Resort in the center of the state or a somewhat hidden gem like the Donald Ross designed, Palatka Municipal Golf Course are easy to find with this guide and map to the best public golf courses in Florida.
