The Golfer’s Guide to Greater Citrus County

Teeing Up in Citrus County, Florida

Those who move to Florida looking for lots of golf courses nearby should be pleased by the multitude of options available in and around the Villages of Citrus Hills. This golfers’ guide to Citrus County, Florida contains a pretty complete list.

If you are a golfer considering spending your retirement along The Nature Coast, let us take a few minutes to introduce you to some of the great golf courses around Citrus County.

Villages of Citrus Hills: Your Home Courses
Even the most avid golfers will have a hard time getting through all of the courses they have access to as residents of the Villages of Citrus Hills.

The centerpiece course here is the incredibly challenging 18-hole course, Skyview at Terra Vista. But if you aren’t up for the challenge of Skyview, you can also play The Meadows, which is the interesting original 18-hole course, or the tree-lined 18-holes at The Oaks course.The Golfer’s Guide to Greater Citrus County

We’re not done yet though, because residents also have access to the challenging 9-hole Brentwood course with its rolling terrain and can also make the short drive to play the beautiful Rees Jones designed Ocala National.

Public Courses
If you decide you want a little more variety in your golf game, there are also many great public courses located in Citrus County.

Citrus Springs Golf & Country Club
Located just about 20 minutes north of Citrus Hills, Citrus Springs Golf & Country Club is an 18-hole course that is open to the public.

They also offer membership packages that allow for reduced greens fees. This can be a great deal if you expect to play here regularly.

The course itself was designed to feel like a course you might find in North Carolina. Most of the holes are very forgiving on both sides, so this is a great place to work on your tee shots.The Golfer’s Guide to Greater Citrus County

Lakeside Country Club
Just 15 minutes east and just outside of Inverness you will find Lakeside Country Club and its 18-hole public course.

Lakeside also contains nice, wide fairways that make teeing off a little more relaxing. The trick here is avoiding the 51 sand traps that protect the greens. If your wedge work could use some improvement, this is a great place to practice.

Plantation on Crystal River
Heading west of the Villages of Citrus Hills into Crystal River you will find Plantation on Crystal River. This is a golf resort that boasts 27 holes, as well as a golf school.

Both of the courses here are designed in the traditional Florida style, which means lots of sand and water obstacles to avoid!

The Lagoons course is the one that will test your short game, while the Championship Course will give you plenty of opportunities to see how far you can drive the ball off the tee.

Semi-Private CoursesThe Golfer’s Guide to Greater Citrus County There are also some country clubs located throughout Citrus County that are considered private, but they make a certain number of tee times available to the public.

Inverness Golf & Country Club
The Inverness Golf & Country Club is located just about 10 minutes past Lakeside Country Club that we mentioned earlier. This is a private facility, but there are public tee times available if you would like to check it out!

The 18-hole course here is going to be a bit tighter than any of the public courses you will find, so you’ll want to put in some time at the driving range before heading out. Water isn’t a major issue here though.

Southern Woods & Sugarmill Woods Country Clubs
Located in Homosassa, Southern Woods and Sugarmill Woods Country Clubs offer a combined 45 holes of golf just about 30 minutes southwest of the Villages of Citrus Hills.

The fairways, water hazards and sand traps will test your accuracy. This course has everything you need to challenge and improve your game.

Twisted Oaks Golf Club offers membership packages that are tailored to fit most budgets and provide the maximum value.

You will find two award winning Tom Fazio designed courses here at World Woods. Two beautiful 18 hole courses offer plenty of challenge for golfers of all levels. A little slice of public golf heaven awaits you here. For those who enjoy golf, World Woods must be on your list of courses to play. With two of the top 10 public access golf courses in Florida on the same property, it is a golfer’s paradise.The Golfer’s Guide to Greater Citrus County
