Resorts With Golf Right on Property

It's summer and if golf is your thing – then you're in the right place. So pick your course, grab your sticks and head out for the links because The Palm Beaches is where you'll want to play. Then brag to your friends back home about all the fantastic golf you shot – and for a steal.

If rolling out of bed, going out your hotel door and straight to the tees is your thing. There are three resorts with not just first-rate golf - it's more like over-the-top golf.

With all the golf courses in Florida, which one was first? The Breakers Palm Beach Ocean Course, that's the one. So why not play it? The Breakers' Oceanfront Endless Summer Savings package is from $289 and features discounts on both of their courses. The Boca Raton Resort & Club has the Uniquely Boca package which offers 25% off greens fees for each of its two courses. Then you have PGA Resort and Spa. The name says it all. Here we have five championship courses. And home of the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic; a past playing location to the Davis Cup, PGA Championship and multiple other golf tourneys. Best of all you can start driving down the fairway during stays that are from only $79. The Summer Escape and Play package has unlimited golf, along with 50% off the David Ledbetter Golf Clinic.

Not Staying at One of Resorts? No worries, Here Are Suggestions

From waterside views and scenic vistas, to top-ranked instruction and extensive practice facilities, these four courses have a variety of surroundings and levels-of-play to golfers of every skill.

The Okeeheelee Golf Course has three, 9-hole courses that can be played in combinations. Situated in a park setting with beautiful lake views, it features five tees at each hole, accommodating all skill levels. Top-ranked PGA and LPGA instructors are on-hand for assistance at the massive practice facility.

Find a fantastic tropical backdrop with native Florida landscaping and environmental turf grass, at the Osprey Point Golf Course. One of the newest courses in The Palm Beaches, it opened in 2010. Here the environment, wildlife and natural habitat are first and foremost. The 27-hole course is one of only five Audubon International Classic Signature Golf Courses in the whole world.

Built upon a closed landfill, the Park Ridge Golf Course is an 18-hole course, certified as a cooperative sanctuary program by Audubon International. And who says South Florida doesn't have hills, it features one of the highest golf experience in The Palm Beaches at 85 feet.

Southwinds Golf Course is also a member of the Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary. Play on this 18-hole course with a lush foliage background and tree-lined fairways. This course is commonly referred to as one of the best in Boca, and a true sanctuary for golfers, birds and wildlife.
