Florida resident Jack Nicklaus has left his mark at several facilities across the state, and Hammock Beach has a gem of a Jack track. With half a dozen holes with greens, tees or more set on the Atlantic Ocean, the Ocean Course is scenic and quite playable; the windy site likely prompted Nicklaus to lighten up on the greenside bunkering a bit. Finishing up on either the ninth or 18th holes is hard to top for scenery.

Everything Sheila Johnson touches turns to gold. When she co-founded Black Entertainment Television (BET) in the early 1980s, it quickly became the mainstream’s go-to cable channel for urban culture. The NHL team she co-owns, the Washington Capitals, won the Stanley Cup last season. Johnson’s Middleburg Film Festival showed Roma months before the word “Oscar” started buzzing. And Valspar Championship, held annually at her Innisbrook, A Salamander Resort, is one of the PGA calendar’s most-anticipated tournaments.
