Florida’s golf history is recognized as one of the oldest in the nation. A number of the earliest courses were created along with the development of railroads and hotels in the state.
The Florida Historic Golf Trail celebrates Florida’s early golf heritage by featuring publicly accessible golf courses throughout the state that golfers can still play on today.
Some of the courses on the Florida Historic Golf Trail have retained much of their historic character, while others have been modified through the years. However, at each of these sites, golf has been played for more than a half century.
The Florida Historic Golf Trail is a program of the Florida Department of State, Division of Historical Resources. The program is designed to enhance public awareness of Florida’s historic golf courses and increase an appreciation for historic preservation and Florida history.
Come play on history!
