Indigo Lakes Golf Club is a good course of moderate difficulty. This is a semi private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated, but not encouraged.
LPGA International - Legends Course also known as the Arthur Hills Legends Course is very tough. Although shorter than its sister course, the Champions, it is more difficult. Sand traps are scattered around the property, and there are many trees. Plenty of trouble awaits the unwary. The greens are in excellent shape, as is the rest of the course. The LPGA International - Legends Course is very highly rated among 'America's Best Women-Friendly Golf Courses' by Golf For Women Magazine. This is a semi-private golf course, and only soft spikes can be worn here.
Pelican Bay Country Club is usually in beautiful condition. It features a number of canals alongside the fairways. These lateral hazards vary between being too close for comfort and lurking in the background. The fairways are narrow and the greens are filled with breaks, both large and small. A sand trap or two fronts most of the greens. It is a very pretty course. The par-5s are short from any of the available tees. There is one long par-3 and a pair of very long par-4s. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
This interesting public course has been tinkered with over the years, but it remains a testament to the talents of Donald Ross. Built in 1921, this is a short and relatively easy course.

The par-5s and par-3s are short, and only one par-4 exceeds 400 yards from the back tees. Sand is used intelligently and won't overwhelm you. There is some water. This is a public golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged.

Although not long or difficult, Riviera Country Club has been aggravating local golfers for decades. Kept in decent shape, it's one of those courses that make golfers wonder why their scores weren't lower. It is relatively easy, but not a pushover. There is lots of sand and enough water to keep things interesting. The course is flat with dogleg fairways to keep things from getting dull. Sometimes trees lie directly in line to the hole. This is a semi-private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged. A 6 Play package costs $204 with a 30 day expiration, for additional rates check the website.
Tomoka Oaks Golf & Country Club is a fascinating country club course and one of the better driving courses in the state. There are a number of pines and oaks defining the fairways and backing the greens. There are a few minor hills and three small water holes to watch out for. Traps of varying size front Tomoka's small greens. There are also a number of fairway traps. The par-5s are enticing and reachable in two shots for longer hitters. The longest par-3s are 185 yards and there are two par-4s that are long, one of them a sharp dogleg to the right. This course is a joy to play. This is a semi-private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged.
This venerable course was the first in the area. The front nine were built in 1911 and designed by Alex Findley. The Oceanside Golf & Country Club is most definitely a links-style golf course. It's open, with only the occasional palm tree to interrupt the windswept landscape. The course is just across Highway A1A from the Atlantic Ocean.It's not the deep traps nor the infrequent water that get you here; it's the wind. The greens are elevated and no holes on this course are long, unless you happen to be playing them into the wind. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
This course sits on a fascinating piece of land surrounding an airport used by home owners and private pilots. There are sections of The Spruce Creek Country Club with trees, sections with elevation changes and sections that are open. The blend works nicely, keeping golfers on their toes. From the Gold tees, the par-5s are 520 to 525 yards. The par-4s are reasonably short, with one long exception. The par-3s are 170 yards on the front nine and roughly 210 yards on the back. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
In fabulous condition, River Bend Golf Club opens with a very good, short par-4 and closes with one of over 400 yards. This 1990 Lloyd Clifton creation is by the Tomoka River and has a remarkable variety of trees surrounding its holes. From the Gold tees, the par-3s register at 160 to 199 yards. There is one par-5 of 616 yards, but the others are mercifully short. This is a semi-private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged. Check the website for tee times and other details.
This 1992 Arthur Hills design plays considerably easier from the Resident tees. It has wetland areas and ponds sprinkled throughout the property at Golf Club At Cypress Head. The greens vary in size and shape and are well-protected by sand traps. This is a public golf course. Soft spikes only.
