As Florida’s “First Coast of Golf,” Jacksonville is a top travel destination for golf enthusiasts. Whether you want to play one of the 70 public or private courses in the area or be a spectator at a PGA Tour event, we at Carl’s Van Rentals encourage you to choose Jacksonville for your golf getaway.

The coastal views in Jacksonville offer the perfect backdrop to a golf-cation. Two of the golf courses in Jacksonville include:

  • Bent Creek Golf Course: Bent Creek is a local favorite—a beautifully maintained, 71-par course nestled in the Florida wetlands. After picking up a van rental from Carl’s Van Rentals, you can get to Bent Creek in about 30 minutes, 
  • Blue Sky Golf Club: Formerly Mill Cove, the Blue Sky Golf Club recently went through 1.5 million dollars of course and clubhouse renovations. This Jacksonville club features a relaxed golf atmosphere, where after your round you can enjoy a full-service restaurant, a round of billiards, and several flat-screen TVs.

If you’re looking for a rainy-day golf activity, pile your golf buddies into a passenger van rental and head 20 minutes south of Jacksonville to the World Golf Hall of Fame. You can take the Hall of Fame Challenge, putting against other guests to win prizes and bragging rights. See firsthand golf memorabilia in the Hall of Fame’s Member Locker Room. Ticket prices include entrance into the Hall of Fame, a round on the 18-hole putting course, and the opportunity to partake in the putting challenge.

As you can see, Jacksonville is teaming with golf opportunities—not to mention fantastic beaches and fine dining when you aren’t on the course. Check out all that Jacksonville, FL has to offer for a fun week of golf.
