A friend of mine recently made a big deal out of a newspaper story he read about a proposed RV park in the town of Margate. It is expected to be South Florida's first luxury RV park, complete with a nine-hole golf course.

He couldn't believe there would be an RV park in Florida with a golf course. I gave him a look and calmly pointed out that Florida is the home of several RV parks that boast golf courses. He was stunned. A lot of people are.

But, it's true. Here are a few:

-- Clerbrook RV Resort is in Lake County, in the rolling hills of central Florida. The park has a short, 18-hole course, a par 67 that includes two par-5s. It also has a driving range, putting greens and instructors.

-- Shady Brook Golf and RV Resort in Sumterville has an 18-hole course that's 6,441 yards from the back tees,with two very different nines. The front is short and tight with water on five holes and the back is longer and has an open, links-like feel. It also has a driving range and practice green.

-- Great Outdoors Resort in Titusville has an 18-holer designed by Ron Garl. It's 6,542 yards, with paved cart paths, wooden bridges. It's a parkland course with plenty of wildlife, a lighted range, 15-hole putting green and chipping area, full-service bar and restaurant.

-- Deer Creek RV Golf Resort in North Davenport has an 18-hole executive course, a par-60 with six par-4s and a $2 million clubhouse.

Here are some others with nine-hole courses: Carefree RV Country Club in Winter Haven; Grand Lake RV and Golf Resort in Orange Lake and Okeechobee KOA Resort and Golf Course.
