. GOLF: You can enjoy our Cocoa Beach vacation condos and play golf on a number of beautiful courses. Thereís lots of great golf nearby and inexpensive. Depending on the course and time of year you can expect to pay from $20 to $65 per round with cart. Most courses have reduced rates after 12:00 P.M. and tend to be a bit less crowded in the afternoons. All will require collared shirts. I donít know of any course that allows you to bring coolers onto the course although I havenít seen the rule enforced. Tee times are usually easy to get without much notice and are observed pretty closely so be on time. I didnít list the Orlando course but there are many within a 40 minute drive so just ask if you are interested. If you play a course that you really like or dislike let me know so I can include your comments. If you need someone to play with, let me know that also!
