Daytona Beach Golf Packages at Homewood Suites
Daytona Beach is well-known for its beautiful white sand beaches, family friendly vacations, and its historical reputation as the World Center of Speed, but golf is an increasingly vital part of this Central Florida oasis. Home to over two dozen quality golf courses, the Daytona Beach area is open for play all year long.
The area’s popularity as a golf destination is enhanced by the golf package offerings of the convenient and lovely Homewood Suites, which is perfectly-equipped to host a twosome, foursome or large group taking a golf buddies trip, wanting to enjoy the diverse course offerings at the World’s Most Famous Beach. Homewood Suites Daytona Beach offers studio and two-bedroom suites along with a complimentary, hot breakfast buffet each morning and a cocktail hour each evening from Monday through Thursday.
Packages at Homewood Suites, located directly across from Daytona International Speedway, start at $348 per person for a three-night and three-round offer. The courses available in the package include:
— The Hills Course at LPGA International was designed by Arthur Hills in 1997 and stretches out to 6,894 yards from the back tees. Hills created a layout with pine tree-lined fairways bordered by water hazards and marshland with small greens. There are five sets of men’s tees at the Hills Course along with three sets of women’s tees. It will be a challenge no matter which tees are chosen.
— DeBary Golf & Country Club has been a U.S. Open qualifying site three times and been a U.S. Senior Open qualifying site, a testament to the quality of the layout. Designed in 1990 by Lloyd Clifton, western Volusia County’s premier track, DeBary was created from land that was once an orange grove and runs through a residential community. However, on most holes, houses are hidden by a buffer of trees and vegetation. DeBary plays 6,776 yards from the back tees. Enjoy the magnificent clubhouse after your challenging round.
— Halifax Plantation Golf Club in nearby Ormond Beach was designed by Bill Amick in 1993. It plays through corridors of oak trees more than 100 years old intermingled with native pines. It’s a hefty 7,128 yards from the championship tees but there are four sets of men’s tees and two sets of women’s tees from which players at every handicap level can find a comfortable yardage.
Homewood Suites enjoys an ideal location – it’s just yards from ONE DAYTONA, the area’s newest retail, dining and entertainment complex – making it an ideal spot for golf groups looking to have a good time on and off the course.
