Extra day off work? Extra day at the links. Take advantage of the long weekend by planning a golf getaway to Hammock Beach Resort and Spa in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. This four-star oceanfront luxury resort features one-bedroom suites and condos with beautifully appointed rooms. But it’s what lies beyond the walls that’s the best by par—two world-class golf courses.

The Best Golf Resort in Florida

An Oceanfront Oasis

Designed by Jack Nicklaus, this green is one of the best golf courses in Florida. Six of the holes are directly on the Atlantic Ocean, so players are faced with a beautiful distraction. Expect to meet challenging play on the last four holes, which have earned the monicker “The Bear Claw.” Heads up: Hole 15, an uphill par four, is one of the most difficult holes on the back nine.

The Conservatory Course

A short fifteen-minute drive from the hotel, The Conservatory Course is a nod to British-style links. Golf legend Tom Watson designed the course, which is comprised of waterfalls, sparkling streams, and intricate stonework. Keep an eye on Hole 8—this signature hole features an island green. The Conservatory Course has received a bevy of accolades: Best Golf Courses You Can Play in Florida – No. 14 (Golfweek, 2020), Best Golf Courses You Can Play in Florida, No. 16 (Golf Magazine, 2016), and more.

 Beyond the Green

When you’re not puttering around, you’ll want to spend some time enjoying the resort’s fantastic amenities. Cool off at one of several pools: The Fantasy Complex features a lazy river, swirling water slide, an adult pool, a zero-entry beach pool, and a large spa. If you need a break from the sun, the serene indoor pool is the place to be. Take a dip in one of the spas or compete against a friend in a game of foosball or table tennis. Other resort amenities include bicycle rentals, tennis court rentals, an arcade, and a putting course.

Whether you’re planning a quick golf getaway or a week-long golf vacation, The Hammock Beach Resort and Spa in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches is a tee-riffic option.
