When the Ladies Professional Golf Association was looking for a new headquarters in the late 1980s, the City of Daytona Beach made an effort to attract them to this city. Daytona Beach renamed Eleventh Street to LPGA Boulevard and offered to build a new golf course for the LPGA on undeveloped land near the western border of the city. Consolidated Tomoka Land Company agreed to donate 650 acres of land to the City, and the result was LPGA International.

Rees Jones designed the Daytona Beach Golf Course, Champions Course, which opened in 1994 and is a favorite of tour players.

Featured are elevated tees and greens, dramatically rolling fairways that are bordered by large mounding and water bordering on 10 holes – always in meticulous playing condition.
