Palatka Golf Club was designed by Donald Ross in 1925 and borders the beautiful Ravine State Gardens. The course is only 5942 yards long from the tips, but don't let that fool you. The Ross "turtleback" greens and well placed bunkers will give your game a test. With our newly installed retention pond, we now offer an aqua driving range. Our large clubhouse offers a pro shop, snack bar and lounge. Our clubhouse is available for parties and other functions. If you would like to know more about the Palatka Golf Club please call us at (386) 329-0141.

Putnam County is home to 3 of the "Top 10" bass fisheries in Florida - the St. Johns River, Crescent Lake and Rodman Reservoir. Rodman also made #14 of the top 100 most productive bass fisheries in the nation by Bassmaster Magazine.

Known as the "Bass Capital of the World", Putnam County also offers a list of other freshwater and saltwater or brackish-water fishing. Freshwater species include the largemouth bass, black crappie (speckled perch), bluegill, shell cracker, warmouth and catfish. Saltwater species include red fish, flounder, sea trout and tarpon. Shrimp migrate up the brackish water during the summer months and striped bass can be caught mostly during the fall and winter months.


Caravelle Ranch 24,869 acres of river bottom hardwoods, pasture and pine-palmetto flatwoods with small hammocks intermingled.

Hunting season is from September to March. Turkey hunting is excellent, while deer, migratory bird, small game, and wild hog hunting are fair to good. A special opportunity dove hunt is offered on four 50-acre dove fields. Trails are closed during hunting season.
