Golf is a beloved sport by millions of people around the world because it is easy to play but impossible to master. The sport requires a lot of patience and practice to hone your skills, so the only way to perform at an elite level is by playing all of the time. Unfortunately, this is not possible in the vast majority of the country during the cold winter months. These are the four best locations for year-round golf in the United States.
There are dozens of cities in Florida that are perfect for year-long golf, but none of them are able to top Naples. This small city of just over 20,000 people has more golf courses than any other city in the state. The average low temperatures never drop below 55 degrees in the winter, so you will never have to cancel a tee time due to bad weather.
San Diego, California
San Diego is widely known for having some of the best weather in the United States, but that is just one reason it is a great golf city.

Hilton Head, South Carolina
Hilton Head is a small barrier island in the Atlantic Ocean that is loaded with picturesque golf courses. Despite only being 69 square miles, Hilton Head has a total of 24 different courses. The top courses in the area were designed by Jack Nicklaus and Pete Dye. The weather can get a little chilly before the sun comes up in the winter, but it will not stop you from playing a quick round.
