Florida, the Sunshine State, is also known as the golf capital of the world. And for a good reason… With all its sunshine, it is the perfect place to play golf year-round.
Florida is recognized as one of the oldest places to play golf in the nation, dating back to the 1890s, when several courses were created after John Gillespie, a Scottish immigrant, introduced golf to the area. Continuing his passion for golf after moving from Scotland, Mr. Gillespie built a new home north of Naples in Sarasota, which comprised a long greenway with two holes. This greenway was his golf course and the origin of golf in Florida and possibly in the United States.
Florida features many golf courses as the centerpiece of sprawling lifestyle communities. It has more than 1,500 golf courses making it the state with the most golf courses in the nation.
