Fore! Melbourne’s Golf Courses Are a Hole-in-One
There is nothing quite like stepping out on freshly cut greens with the morning sun shining on your face while you gear up for a healthy round of competition with your best golfing buddies. Florida’s tropical-like weather allows us to have some pretty amazing golf days almost year-round, and golfing is truly the perfect sport to clear your mind of any stresses or anxieties that you have. Melt away the stress by enjoying the outdoor wonders of Florida’s Space Coast, and enjoy the wildlife that you can encounter on any given day. And if that doesn’t work, some quality time with your friends on the golf course will do just the trick.
