Because of the Tampa area’s unique biodiversity, there isn’t a never-ending supply of golf courses in St. Petersburg, FL. And don’t forget that these courses and country clubs also have to compete with miles upon miles of pristine beach. At the end of the day, travelers typically choose sunbathing, swimming, and snorkeling over 18 holes of golf under the sun. However, you won’t find a more affordable, laid-back golf community in the Southern United States than St. Petersburg, FL.
