Inverness is uniquely located in Florida, giving us easy access to the gulf coast, the panhandle, the roof of Florida, and even the southern tip with just an easy drive. That means we can enjoy some of the nation’s best golf getaways throughout Florida without a long drive. Here are some of our favorite Florida golf resorts:
Mariott Resort and Spa – Ponte Vedra Beach: Just a three-hour drive from
Inverness. This beautiful golf course rests on the Atlantic coast, just south
of Jacksonville. In addition to the golf course, which spans forests of
moss-draped trees and breezy beaches, there’s plenty to do at the resort. You
can also enjoy bike rentals and beachfront fun, or indulge in a spa treatment.
Orlando Grande Lakes: If you’re in the mood for some pampering alongside
your golf game, make the one-hour drive to this breathtaking golf course, which
also includes a 40,000-square-foot spa.
Amelia Island Plantation Resort – Fernandina Beach: Located three hours to
the northeast, this resort is a dream destination complete with massive
swimming pools, nine onsite restaurants, and 3.5 miles of unspoiled beach. The
accompanying golf course is the set along a grove of oak trees that are
centuries old, weaving through a maritime forest.
- Saddlebrook Resort – Tampa Bay: It’s only a one-hour drive from Inverness to the Tampa Bay area. This world-class golf resort has something for the whole family, even those who don’t play golf. Wildlife includes blue herons, turtles, and gators, and kids will enjoy the Superpool.
At Nick Nicholas Ford, we’re proud to serve the beautiful Inverness area.
