    This course is thought-provoking but fair to golfers of all skill and experience levels, and unlike many Florida courses, Abacoa has real elevation changes.  The greens are TifEagle grass, and the putting surfaces are of some of the highest quality in Florida. Treat yourself to a round at Abacoa.
