Where Can You Find the Best Golf Courses in Gainesville, FL?
Ironwood Golf Course
If you want to practice your swing while traveling to Gainesville, head over to one of the best local courses: Ironwood Golf Course. In addition to a great golfing experience, it provides a serene backdrop to help you relax. Picture towering pines and glittering water all around you as you strive for a perfect game. With contoured fairways and strategically placed bunkers, golfers of every skill level will have a good time.
Meadowbrook Golf Club
Meadowbrook Golf Club is a local favorite. If you want to challenge yourself and up your game, we recommend trying this one. Its narrow fairways and sloping greens will certainly test your skills! The owners are constantly trying to improve the course to make it even more pleasant for players, so it’s not a bad idea to call ahead and ask if any parts are closed for maintenance.
Mark Bostick Golf Course
The Mark Bostick Golf Course is situated right by the University of Florida. It’s also a quick 10-minute drive from Sweetwater Branch Inn! This course was created by the famous architect Donald Ross during the 1920s. Today, it serves as the home course for the Gator’s men’s and women’s golf teams. Do you want to know the best part? If you are a student or alumni of UF, you get special discounts! They also offer a pro shop that’s open Monday through Sunday between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
