9780813030210: Florida's Fairways: 60 Alluring and Affordable Golf Courses from the Panhandle to the Keys

Florida offers more than a thousand accessible and affordable golf courses, which attract more than two million golfers every year. Moore’s guide to 60 golfing venues in the Sunshine State caters to all budgets by featuring public courses, semi-private clubs where daily-fee players are welcome, and resorts that offer on-site accommodations.            Moore explores each course’s character—from its architect, design, and history to an analysis of each hole, including advice on drive and approach shots and helpful observations on hazards and putting surfaces. Arranged in four geographical sections with maps showing course locations and featuring 100 black-and-white and 20 color photographs, this guide includes detailed directions allowing easy access from the nearest interstates and other major roads. Moore also includes current green fees, phone numbers, and Web sites, as well as yardage and course and slope ratings for blue and red tees.            As a bonus, Moore directs golfers to places of history—such as the course where Jack Nicklaus once carded a 7 and the 1920s resort where Johnny Weissmuller was a lifeguard. Both the recreational golfer and the keen student of the sport will find Florida’s Fairways a handy, richly informative, and enjoyable guide.
