The championship course honored by Space Coast Living Magazine
Viera, Fla. (July 14, 2015) – The Viera Company, developer of the master-planned community of Viera, announces Duran Golf Club has been named ‘Best Golf Course of the Space Coast’ by Space Coast Living Magazine. The golf club received the most votes by the magazine’s readers. Duran Golf Club is a par 72, 18-hole championship course with an expansive development center, a clubhouse with a full service pro shop, restaurant and event facility.
“Our land was once a fertile sod farm, which produces the plushest playing surface on the Space Coast, and it’s located just steps from Viera’s family-friendly neighborhoods, where residents can enjoy the game all year long,” notes David Tomczak, General Manager of Duran Golf Club. “Not only is our course one of the best, but we also employ some of the nation’s top-rated PGA golf professionals, allowing residents and guests to learn from the best.”
Duran’s director of instruction, Justin Blazer, has been recognized as one of the Top 50 Master Kids Teachers 2014 by U.S. Kids Golf, an organization helping teach kids the lifelong game of golf. Head golf professional Matt Morrison also recently completed the PGA of America’s Certified Professional Program, receiving a Certification for General Management, a career-enhancing educational curriculum to improve business and teaching skills.
Duran Golf Club is committed to bringing players from all over the country to Viera and recently announced it will host the 2016 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I Men’s Golf National Championship Tournament, May 15-20.
Duran Golf Club has also been awarded with Florida Today’s Best of Brevard 2014 and Hometown News’ Best Golf Course 2014 award. The course’s practice range has been listed on the Golf Range Association of America’s list of Top 50 Public Ranges.
