From Pensacola to Key West, the Florida Historic Golf Trail includes public, semi-private, military and resort golf courses. Most of these historic golf courses were built during the "Golden Age" of golf course architecture. During this period, from the early teens through the late 1930s, golf course construction in Florida exploded as new developments were being built across the state.
Many famous golf course architects were hired during this time to design and build new golf courses across the state. The list of renowned architects includes Donald Ross, Seth Raynor, Tom Bendelow, Herbert Strong, and firms like Langford and Moreau, Stiles and Van Kleek, and Flynn and Toomey. Come walk in the same footsteps as Bobby Jones, Walter Hagen, Gene Sarazen and Babe Zaharias.
