Named “Best Public Golf Course” and ranked in the Top 50 in the country for practice range, Duran Golf Club defines “Great Golfing Experience” to those who live for golf.

The JASC Golf Classic is quickly becoming one of Brevard County’s premier golf tournaments and you’ll
see why: Bloody Mary bar to start the day off right, hospitality tents on course, tournament contests to test your skill, and a 1,000 golf ball drop to
