If you’re a regular to this space then obviously you love golf. Chances are also good that you’re a buddies-trip guy or gal, turning your golf jones into a destination vacation every year or two.
Golf Digest readers are buddies-trip kind of folks. too, and the magazine rewarded them with a list of their best destinations for such trips in their January issue.
There were four Florida cities among the 36 destinations listed, with a handful of must-play courses included for each. I agree heartily with the magazine's selections, though I’d also add some picks of my own. Their picks and mine:
Magazine picks: PGA National (Champion course), The Breakers (Jones), West Palm Beach Golf Course.
I’d add: PGA National (Fazio), Palm Beach Par-3 Course
Magazine picks: TPC Sawgrass (Stadium course), World Golf Village, Amelia Island (Oak Marsh).
I’d add: TPC Sawgrass (Valley), St. Johns Golf and Country Club
Magazine picks: Naples Grande, Tiburon (Black and Gold), Rookery at Marco.
I’d add: Old Corkscrew, Valencia Golf and Country Club
Magazine picks: Bay Hill, Waldorf Astoria, Orange County National (Panther Lake).
