After a very wet winter in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia, avid golfers have started to look at winter opportunities elsewhere. While everyone can’t up and fly to Palm Springs, California, Tampa, Florida is a short drive down the Interstate. Most private Tampa, Florida country and golf clubs have their peak golf season November through March and April. Some clubs close down two days during the summer months for maintenance reasons.
In Palm Springs, California almost all private country and golf clubs shut down during the month of October to overseed. This isn’t exactly what happens in Tampa but you will find that most of the tournament play and more popular games will take place from November through Easter. If you are sick of sitting inside during the winter months in the northern part of the United States, it might be time to look at some of the private country club options in Tampa, Florida.
I am actually a good friend with a dermatologist in South Tampa and they explained that the sun is a skincare issue year round in the Tampa, Florida area. Always remember to bring your sunscreen if you plan to play golf anywhere in the state of Florida.
