The BEST PGA Tour beach destinations and championship courses YOU CAN PLAY

The PGA Tour is full of talented and hardworking players and you could say that they are rewarded with experiencing the best courses around the world.

When I sit at home and look at the courses each week, windswept with sand from the beach and the sun shining down on to the green fairways, I always envisage what it would be like to play them.

Courses by the ocean in America offer the most stunning views and amazing experiences and you can be like the players and play on these championship golf courses one day.

Much like the professionals, you need to find places to stay in order to play at these amazing venues. At the seaside venues on the PGA Tour, there are some stunning towns and cities for you to stay the night.
