The PGA Tour moves into its Florida Swing with a month of resort golf courses that come complete with a Bear Trap, a Snake Pit, the home track of Arnold Palmer, the world’s most famous island green and plenty of water. Let’s get things started with a look at the courses on tap through March 19.
The Florida Swing starts this week with the Honda Classic at PGA National’s Champion Course, followed by the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, The Players Championship on the Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, then the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort.
Golfweek’s Best employs more than 800 raters around the world to evaluate courses. They rate each course they play according to 10 prescribed criteria, then offer a final rating on a scale of 1 to 10. Those individual ratings are averaged to produce a final course rating, which then can be compared to other layouts. Keep scrolling to see how the courses of the Florida Swing rate.
