Nature Coast Golf Trail Specials
Please call a Vacation Specialist for assistance and a special package itinerary. Thank You!
Visions of sun-drenched white-sand beaches permeate thoughts of Florida for the millions that flock to the state each year for vacation. For many, the perception of Florida is a concrete jungle with busy theme parks, congested freeways and beaches. However, you can still experience the Florida of yesteryear in Florida’s “Nature Coast” destination – complete with world-class golf courses and award-winning accommodations.
Florida’s Nature Coast, rimmed by wild, undeveloped, and pristine coastline, stretches from just north of Tampa/Clearwater to the Florida Panhandle. In 1867, World famous naturalist John Muir described the Nature Coast as “a string of counties studded with emerald-like gulf waters, deep springs and rivers, stretching along the same Florida coast.” Today, the immediate area just north of Tampa/Clearwater features two unique qualities - it remains one of the last unspoiled natural regions of Florida, plus offers golfers and families many affordable activities and adventures. There are over 30 golf courses along “The Trail”, natural, crystal-clear springs for swimming/snorkeling/diving, water-sport activities, fresh/salt water fishing, pristine beaches and nature park exploration. The pristine, warm spring waters are not only enticing to visitors, but are also home to the largest winter manatee population in North America. This region is the only place in North America where humans can legally swim alongside the manatee.
Golf Zoo customers can choose accommodations along the Florida Nature Coast Golf Trail in Crystal River, Inverness, Brooksville, Dade City, or Tampa and still be within minutes or within a short drive to some of the most highly-rated golf courses in the state of Florida. Golf courses include: Pine Barrens and Rolling Oaks at World Woods, Juliette Falls Club, Southern Hills Plantation, The Dunes Golf Club, Silverthorne, Hernando Oaks and The Plantation Resort.

Lake Jovita Golf Club - North Course Golf Packages
The Lake Jovita Golf Club championship courses are acclaimed as tour quality. The 263-acre North course is every essence of the worthy compliment. A little more contemporary in style, the North course has even greater elevation changes than the South; providing golfers with positively incredible views of the scenic community. The North Course continues the tradition of the South Course in terms of elevation changes that are contrary to most Florida courses. In fact, from the second tee box, players have a panoramic view of the Florida countryside - five or six miles to the northeast. Playing from a length of 7,226 yards from the back tees, the north course also features three other sets of tees to create the right challenge for players of all levels. Amenities include a world-class practice facility, complete putting green, chipping green and separate teaching tees.
Lake Jovita Golf Club - South Course Golf Packages
Lake Jovita's South Course is rolling hills, undulating valleys and ancient hardwood forests dotted with freshwater lakes. The landscape and elevation changes here are far more typical of North Carolina than they are of Florida. But, make no mistake, this is Florida golf at its finest, thanks to the creative design work by the architect team of Tom Lehman and Kurt Sandness. You'll be interested to know that the Lake Jovita South Golf Course features one of the longest natural elevation drops of any golf course in the state - 94 feet from tee to green on the Par-5 11th hole. Playing from a length of 7,126 yards from the tips, the South Course also features three other teeing areas for golfers of all skill levels.
Juliette Falls Golf Club Golf Packages
In a state with over 2,000 golf courses, Juliette Falls Golf Club ranks among the very finest. In 2008, Golf Magazine designated it as one of the top ten best new courses in the U.S., and in 2011 GolfWeek Magazine ranked the course #6 in the state of Florida. Juliette Falls is a par 72, championship course that soars beyond every expectation of luxury. The 7,200 yard course is a rolling parkland terrain design highlighted by four spectacular waterfalls and significant elevation changes. Fairways are lush and lined by large oaks, pine and palmetto forests, framed by acres of crushed white coquina shell that serve as waste areas. Natural areas are preserved where abundant native plants and colorful wildflowers add to the beauty of this higly-rated course. With five sets of tees, golf at Juliette Falls will be home to all levels of players regardless of skill and expertise. Arrive early to utilize our 10 acre practice complex with north and south tees, chipping and putting areas.
Southern Hills Plantation Golf Packages
Southern Hills invites you to enjoy our distinctively different course, the only only private Pete Dye course in the Tampa area. The terrain is unlike that of any other, with elevations from 60' to nearly 250' and yardages from 5,200 to 7,500. This phenomenal course opened in 2006 and has been named by GolfWeek as "One of the Top 50 New Courses in the U.S.", and "One of the Top 100 Residential Courses in the U.S.". Golf Zoo customers can now take advantage of this rare opportunity to play one of Florida's best!
