Daytona Beach Golf Courses Reopen Following Recovery From Hurricane Ian
By Brian Weis
With clean up from Hurricane Ian well underway, the Daytona Beach Area continues to bounce back, including the area's acclaimed golf courses, which are welcoming players for the popular fall season.
Home to nearly 20 courses, including LPGA International and a pair of Donald Ross designs, Daytona Beach is one of Central Florida's most popular golf destinations, delivering the type of quality, value and good times group leaders relish.
Hurricane Ian brought high winds and rain, leaving golf courses to clean up debris and downed trees but largely avoiding any structural damage. Most of Daytona Beach's courses reopened just days after the storm and now layouts across the area are hosting players with typically outstanding conditions.
"We are delighted to welcome golfers back to Daytona Beach," said Lori Campbell-Baker, Executive Director for the Daytona Beach Area CVB. "Area golf courses were fortunate to avoid long-term damage, and players can look forward to their favorite Daytona Beach area courses being in prime condition on their next trip to the area."
With an average high temperature of 76 degrees in November, 71 in December and 69 in January, Daytona Beach is an idyllic winter golf destination.
Among Daytona Beach's most prominent layouts are the Hills and Jones courses at LPGA International and Victoria Hills, a Ron Garl design that has been ranked among Florida's best public courses. Ross designs New Smyrna Golf Club and the South Course at Daytona Beach Golf Club join historic Riviera Country Club as members of the Florida Historic Golf Trail.
The area complements its golf offerings with an array of restaurants and nightlife that guarantee a good time long after the final putt drops. Daytona Beach also features an assortment of accommodations, highlighted by luxury oceanfront condos that serve as the perfect base for a golf trip.
