Southern Hills Plantation

I recently had the opportunity to play a fantastic private country club - Southern Hills Plantation in Brooksville, Florida.

Nestled within the rolling hills of Brooksville, Florida, Southern Hills Plantation provides a unique terrain.  Elevations of 60 to nearly 250 feet provide a truly unique opportunity for golfers at the Pete Dye Signature golf course.  Designed to maximize natural elevations and views, the private 18 hole course is rated by Golf Week as one of the top 100 residential courses in the United States.

The golf experience is elevated to new heights with generous course corridors, expansive landing areas and natural buffers that frame each hole.  Pete Dye designed a superb practice facility including a driving range, chipping and putting greens and a six hole par three course.

Southern Hills is available for play through Golf Zoo.  The golf course is under the Natures Coast Golf Trail and is currently included on one of our Hot Deals for that area - http://www.golfzoo.com/-screen-scnSell_Special-_ispost-1-.htm  We have a couple of hotels in the Brooksville area along with a half dozen great courses to compliment Southern Hills Plantation.  The Brooksville area can be axis-ed from either Orlando or Tampa - about an hour drive from each area.
