My sister and BIL wanted to come and vacation close to where we were. He likes to play golf, so I checked up on it for him.

Even though golf is BIG in Florida, as far as I know there are only 4 courses in the keys. Two are private courses (in Key Largo and Marathon), and two are public courses. One of the public courses is on Stock Island.

The website says:

Golf legend REES JONES masterfully designed this public, 18 hole, 6,500 yard course to be a challenge to players of all abilities. ..

Equipment: The course is right next to the Botanical Garden.

Challenges of the course, include the infamous "Mangrove Hole" (143 yards, par 3 that is played completely over a field of thickly intertwined tropical mangroves).

Address: 6450 College Rd
Directions: At the first intersection of College Rd when heading toward Key West. But College Road loops around back to US 1 - so go in either end of College Rd. and still get there.
