Grande Champion is a relatively new community built next to the LPGA International Golf Course. Here, you can play through on 36 world-class holes, visit the pool, have a meal in Malcolm's Bar & Grill, or workout in their state-of-the-art fitness facilities. Grande Champion sits near the 14th and 15th hole on the Hills course.
If you want to eat out without having to go to the clubhouse, it's a bit of drive back into town. But once you do, there are a number of outstanding restaurants to choose from both on the mainland side of town and especially on the beachside. While you might have to drive to find a dog park, you are not that far from the Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area.
Keep in mind that summers here hit the 90s and stay there for weeks, so be sure to take your walks during the early mornings while the pavement is still cool.
Living out here in Grande Champion put you in the middle of densely wooded areas, but the terrain is still quite flat and leaves a little to be desired when it comes to finding exciting places to take your pup for a walk.
The woods, however, do have plenty of trails to check out. But if you prefer to stick to paved surfaces where you can see what's going on around you while you walk, then there are plenty of sidewalks for the two of you to hike around on. Try going in different directions, take in the copse of woods in the middle of the neighborhood, or anything else to make your walks a little more interesting. You can even take a train or two or go at different times of the day. Every time you take your dog somewhere they haven't been, doing so will make them a much happier camper!
Grande Champion is one of the luckiest communities in the Daytona Beach area. It is surrounded by green spaces! Between the golf course and the miles of woods surrounding the neighborhood, you truly don’t have to walk more than a block in any direction to find dense Florida woods or the carefully manicured grounds of the LPGA Golf Course.
If you don't mind the mosquitoes, you can spend hours walking on the trails running all through the surrounding woods. You probably shouldn't try to take your dog walking on the golf course as the management and the players might not approve of it. Not to mention that no one wants to have to take their next shot from a pile of doggy mess and taking a drop makes staying under par pretty tough. In fact, no matter where you end up taking your pooch fo daily walks, remember to be courteous and clean up after them.
