Want to Play Good, Cheap Golf in South Florida?

By: Tim McDonald


For some reason, many tourists I've run into think South Florida golf is just for rich people. Not true. There are some very affordable golf courses spread all around South Florida, on both coasts.

Here are some of my favorites, where green fees are rarely more than $50 and in most cases, substantially below. Some of these are municipal courses, and some are simply non-elite golf courses that are very worthwhile plays.

In the Miami area, Crandon Golf on Key Biscayne is not only affordable, it's one of the most scenic courses in the state. Also, try the Country Club of Miami.

The West Palm Beach area includes affordable courses like Cypress Creek Country Club and Palm Beach Gardens Golf Club.

In Southwest Florida, there are some nice courses that combine low green fees and good, challenging layouts.

Charlotte County, north of the Naples-Ft. Myers area, is an excellent place to find them. Try Deep Creek Golf Club,  an excellent municipal layout. A little to the south, try Eagle Ridge Golf Club and Rotonda Golf and Country Club.

In the Sarasota-Bradenton area, check out Capri Isles, Sabal Trace and Oak Ford. By the way, Oak Ford has rates of $12.60 right now during its aerification process. Can't get much cheaper than that, if you don't mind some little holes punched in the greens.
