RV Resorts With 9- and 18-Hole Golf Courses

Hit the golf course during your RV travels with this guide by Jeff Crider!

Many of the nation’s RV resorts are located in close proximity to golf courses, but scores of RV parks and resorts also have their own 9- or 18-hole golf courses, particularly in the Sunbelt.

But while some park operators tout the challenging nature of their courses, many RVers simply use golf as a way to socialize, said Amir Harpaz, a co-owner and developer of Torrey Trails RV & Golf Resort in Bowling Green, Fla., which features a 9-hole golf course.

“It’s not an intimidating golf course. You can be a newbie,” Harpaz said. But the course is highly sought after as a social venue, he said. “Most of our guests play two or two-and-a-half hours and end up at the poolside bar. It definitely adds another dimension of fun to the RV resort experience.”

Here’s a sampling of nearly three dozen RV resorts across the country with adjoining golf courses for their guests:
