Golf in St. Petersburg
A leisure mecca, St. Petersburg is known for its sun, its beaches and its many green golf courses—there are over 50 golf courses in the St. Petersburg and Tampa area. Dock the yacht at the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club golf course and play tree-lined fairways with harbor views or putt past the Renaissance Vinoy's bird sanctuary that doubles as a challenging, 18-hole St. Petersburg golf course. Even St. Petersburg's municipal golf course has won golf awards—the Mangrove Bay Golf Course was voted one of the best golf courses in the country for women golfers. Also a public St. Petersburg golf course, Twin Brooks Golf Course boasts tough greens and challenging holes, with plenty of stellar views. Golf in St. Petersburg is an experience that should not be missed.
