Florida Caverns Golf Course
(Public, 9 holes, $11.00 - $9.00) This course features small, elevated greens. The terrain is rolling, so you can expect some interesting lies in the fairways. The course is located next to a state park, so squirrels and deer are common scenery. The green fees shown (subject to change) are good for all-day play. Walking the course is allowed on weekdays and during designated hours on weekends.
Within its borders Jackson County keeps the magic and beauty of the Florida found behind the billboards and beyond the glare of theme park lights. It is a natural wonder few have discovered. Low rolling hills crowded by towering stands of pine and sprawling oaks are crisscrossed by a shimmering lacework of unspoiled waterways. Meandering streams and rivers, crystal clear springs, vast lakes and quiet ponds endlessly feed the lush scenery, abundant wildlife and the dreams of sportsmen and nature lovers everywhere.
