On the weekends, many of the area’s top executives, physicians, and lawyers can be found teeing it up at the two golf courses in the Baymeadows area, Deerwood, which fronts Southside Boulevard and Baymeadows Road and Deercreek, on Southside Road, just north of the Avenues Mall. Both of the courses are private. For daily-fee play, the nearest course is Julington Creek, about five miles from the Avenues Mall.
