Hi everyone! I'm planning a weekend trip to Florida in July but am feeling a little lost as I've never been to the Sunshine State before. I'm from Connecticut and my parents will be joining my husband and I for this trip (first trip with my parents since we got married last year so it would be nice if everything was, well, perfect.)

Here's the thing -- we all love to golf so we'd like to have a wide range of (not too expensive) golf courses to choose from. I know Miami and Orlando are home to some of the best golf courses, but which city would be a more pleasant destination overall? Fort Lauderdale, Key West and West Palm Beach also sound like great places...too many to choose from!!

Any help and advice would be great. Also, I'm planning to book my trip through Priceline. I don't want to save on hotel so please recommend the best place to stay in town too! Thanks so much!

Southwest Florida probably has the most golf courses in Florida. In Miami, Key Biscayne has a public course called Crandon, its actually one of the top public course in America. The Biltmore in Coral Gables has a pretty course, not cheap though.

If you are going to use Priceline go to Priceline and Hotwire Forum or BiddingForTravel.com - Message Board Yuku to see what hotel are being excepted at Priceline. South Beach, Key Biscayne, Brickell and Coral Gables are the areas you will want to stay in Miami.

Not sure throwing the name of one more city will help, but what about Naples? I heard it is the city with the highest number of golf courses per capita. I guess this echoes doggiebus' mention of Southwest Florida.
One thing for sure, Key West (and all the other Keys for that matter) is not the place for golfing. Not enough room I guess. Fort Lauderdale has many courses.
