If you are heading to Florida,

a great place to start is St.

Augustine. It has gorgeous

beaches with large wave

action that attracts surfers

and wake boarders alike. An

enjoyable afternoon involves

watching the wake boarders

dash in and out of the water,

while farther down the beach

surfers navigate the larger

waves at Villano Beach.

There are twomajor attractions

for golfers in the area, the

World Golf Hall of Fame a


TPC Sawgrass,

home of the

“island green” and The Players

Championship, as well as, the

lesser known, but challenging,

Valley Course.

The World Golf Village


two golf courses, the King

& Bear, plus the Slammer &

Squire. They are collaborative

designs by four Hall of Fame

members, Arnold Palmer, Jack

Nicklaus, Sam Snead, and

Gene Sarazen.

Any trip to Florida must

include at least a couple of

days inOrlando. Not only does

the area have exceptional golf

opportunities, but the Magic

Kingdom, Epcot, Universal

and a host of other water

parks and attractions offer fun

for the whole family.

The next stop on our “Florida

Swing” was the PGA Golf Club at Port St. Lucie. PGA

Golf Club features four great

golf courses, including the

Pete Dye course that just

underwent an extensive

renovation last year. The

Dye Course is one of my

favorites in Florida and the

work of superintendent, Dick

Gray and his staff made the

course pop. The greens were

extended back to their original

dimensions and fairways and

tees received new seeding.
