marshes. Don’t be surprised if you are joined by herons, deer and other wildlife even just a few miles away from the bustling beaches. The natural beauty of this area shines through at all area courses, providing a serene environment for total relaxation. But don’t get too relaxed. There are definitely some challenging holes throughout the Crystal Coast—challenging enough that golfers keep coming back again and again to lower their handicap. Of course, most courses were designed with both the professional and beginner in mind, so even a first-time golfer can enjoy a day out on the links at nearly all of the nearby courses. Most golf courses also offer lessons

for every level of golfer. Whether you need to tweak your swing or get a full introduction to the game, onsite pros are there to help. Club rentals are also available. Top quality service and club houses are standard at area courses, so if you can’t get your game up to par—or under par, we should say—stop in at the clubhouse for a tasty beer and meal. Then explore the pro shop and find top-ofthe-line clubs, clothing, shoes and everything you need to live the golfing lifestyle. With sub-tropical weather, golfers are lured here year round. But perhaps the best time to hit the links is the spring and fall, when the temperatures cool and the beach crowds return home.

So try one, try all—Crystal Coast golf is an experience all visitors should enjoy. Keep in mind that most courses require scheduled tee-times, so it is best to call ahead. c
