Top 5 Night Golf Courses in Florida
By Carling Nolan
Since most of the country is under snow and ice, this is the perfect time of year to sneak off to Florida for a golf vacation. Avid golfers are looking to play 18-36 holes per day, but how to accomplish that when the sun sets at 5 p.m.?
Your problem is daylight and the only prescription is Florida night golf!
Here’s a list of lighted night golf courses in Florida:
1. Duran Par 3: Viera, FL
This par three course is right across the street from the lovely Duran Golf Club. After playing the challenging 7,100 yard par 71 course, you can sneak across the road for a quick 9 under the lights. The best of both worlds!
2. Terrace Hill Golf Club: Tampa, FL
Bring your driver! This is one of the few lighted courses that is not par 3. This course at Terrace Hill features 3 par 4's and a challenging par 3 that’s over 200 yards!
3. Island Golf Center: Fort Walton Beach, FL
This par 3 course runs along the water, and you can enjoy the bay scenery on most holes. It also has a unique pitch and putt course for your short game!
4. Jo Daddy's Lighted Golf Course: Palm Beach, FL
This night golf course didn't make the list strictly for it's amazing name, but it's a great golf course too! It's 1,1470 yards with a par of 29.
5. The Links of Naples, Naples, FL
This is the only lighted golf course in all of Naples. So if you're in Southwest Florida, stop by after dark for some birdies at the Links of Naples!
