Five must-see Daytona Beach golf courses in 2022

The Victoria Hills Golf Club is a must-visit course in the Daytona Beach area

DAYTONA BEACH, Florida, USA, April 27, 2022 / — Daytona Beach has become a destination of choice for savvy group leaders looking for good golf, good times and value, leading to an influx of newcomers looking for the best amenities in the area.

Home to nearly 20 golf courses, including a pair of Donald Ross designs, a US Open qualifying venue, and three layouts that have hosted professional tournaments, identifying Daytona Beach’s “best” courses is inherently a subjective exercise. That being said, here are five must-see Daytona Beach golf courses in 2022:

● LPGA International, a 36-hole property, is Daytona Beach’s most acclaimed facility, and the Jones Course challenges players with some of Central Florida’s best green complexes, sprawling waste bunkers and teeing areas. natural marshes. A favorite of the world’s top female golfers when the LPGA held its title holders event in Daytona Beach, Rees Jones’ layout also features generous fairways framed by mounds, creating the memorable visuals that players enjoy.

● Golfweek ranked Victoria Hills as one of the top 15 public networks in Florida and it doesn’t take long for players to see why. The course runs along naturally rolling terrain and pine-lined fairways, an atypical look for a Florida layout, and players love it. For golfers in the western part of Volusia County, playing this design by Ron Garl is a priority.

● A greens restoration project has propelled Halifax Plantation to the top of many must-see lists. The new Bermuda Dwarf Champion Ultra turf has made the greens of the Bill Amick course one of the smoothest in the area. Halifax plays among century-old oak trees, adding scenery to a pristine layout.

● For many, Daytona Beach is home to the Daytona International Speedway “World Center of Racing”, so it’s only natural that one of the fastest rounds of golf in the area is also among the most enjoyable. Crane Lakes Golf Club, a par 66 that features eight par 3s and a pair of par 5s, can be played in less than 3.5 hours, but it’s not just a “short course.” Crane Lakes has several par 4s that play 380 yards and its shortest par 3 is 151 yards.

● The US Women’s Open will be played on a design by Donald Ross this summer, shining the spotlight on America’s most revered golf course architect. Ross has designed a pair of area layouts – the Daytona Beach Golf Club South Course and the New Smyrna Golf Club – both of which are municipal courses that allow players to enjoy the work of one of the game’s legends at an advantageous price. For golfers in southern Volusia County, New Smyrna, with its small undulating greens, is a treat to play.
