A top magazine is recognizing Charlotte County as one of the best places in the country for golfers. Charlotte County officials say they’re thrilled by making Golf Magazines list of top spots for golfing and golfers. The magazine named Punta Gorda and environs as the 3rd “Best in America for quality of life and golf. Becky Bovell director of the Charlotte County Visitor’s Bureau says it’s wonderful publicity.
”Golf digest is circulated to about 2 million people – and is considered the premiere publication among golfers, so for us to be listed as number 3 is sort of like scoring a double eagle”
Charlotte County has fourteen golf courses with public access. They range from the Four Star Riverwood Golf Club – to executive courses. Golf Digest bases its selections on access to golf, weather, the cost of a round of golf, and the quality of courses. The top spot went to Auburn, Alabama.
