Sebring’s Citrus Golf Trail: “Golf Value Destination of America”

Sebring, located about one hour south of Orlando, is becoming a popular Florida golf destination and Sun N Lake Golf Club at Turtle Run is a must-play featuring a par 72, 18 hole championship course, measuring 6731 yards with a slope of 125 and rating of 72.5.

SEBRING, Florida – It has been tagged “America’s Value Golf Capital,” but the Sebring area in Florida has proven to be an excellent golf and vacation destination … at any price.

The Sebring Citrus Golf Trail is a collection of outstanding golf courses, hotels and attractions in an area that reminds visitors of Old Florida, uncluttered Florida and a refreshingly slower-paced Florida.

For all of those reasons, the Sebring Citrus Golf Trail kicks off the New Year with a host of travel destination opportunities designed to bring “Snowbird” golfers to un-chartered territory, located about one hour south of Orlando.

Sebring is the home of the Sebring International Raceway, created on a former airbase, first used in 1950 and it hosted the 1959 Formula One United States Grand Prix, but is currently best known as the host of the 12 Hours of Sebring, an annual WeatherTech SportsCar Championship race.

The golf courses in the Sebring area run the gamut from older, classic courses such as the Donald Ross-designed Pinecrest GC and Dick Wilson-designed Harder Hall … to more modern layouts like the 36 holes at Sun ‘N Lake GC, River Greens GC and the 36 holes at Highlands Ridge GC. The featured accommodations include the quaint Inn on the Lakes and the modern Chateau Elan Hotel and Conference Center overlooking the famed Sebring International Raceway. And the local attractions and restaurants are so diverse that all of the non-golf vacation time can be filled with interesting activities.

“My first visit to the Sebring area was a real eye-opener,” admits Tony Leodora, a golf entrepreneur from Philadelphia and host of the Traveling Golfer television show. “The quality of the golf is way above the value of the pricing and the atmosphere of the area makes it a delightful place to visit. I have made three trips to the Sebring area now and I guarantee I will be back in the future.”

“That kind of reaction is typical of a lot of visitors,” says Casey Hartt, Director of Marketing for Visit Sebring. “A lot of people say they love coming here because they can shift to a lower gear – no pun intended on the racing. We really offer things for every vacation pace, whether you’re into the racing at Sebring International Raceway, you just want to watch a sunset, you want to look at murals or you want to play golf.”
