Reach more than one million golfers when they are planning their golf vacation.


Play FLORIDA is the State’s Official Golf Program that increases Florida’s market share of golf visitors.  The year-round integrated media and marketing effort reaches a highly qualified audience in key target markets BEFORE they make their travel plans!  Now in its 18th year, Play FLORIDA is the most comprehensive, reliable and trusted resource for out-of-state golf visitors and instate residents.


Why is Play FLORIDA Successful?
Cooperative marketing is the key!  Florida’s leading Convention & Visitors Bureaus, golf resorts, courses, hotels and golf packaging companies partner with Play FLORIDA.  It enables them to increase their market share through a program they would otherwise not be able to implement on their own.  Long-term Partners all agree on one thing – much more is accomplished as a group than any single destination or property could ever do alone.


“Today’s golfers are constantly changing – they travel in smaller groups, stay shorter periods of time, plan their trips at the last minute and are becoming very dependent on the Internet.  As other destinations have become very aggressive, it is more important than ever for Florida’s golf travel industry leaders to combine their marketing resources.”

Dave Reese, Executive DirectorFlorida’s First Coast of Golf
