Lodging and golf in Ocala, Gainesville or nearby

My husband and I are planning a week trip late Jan to see the LPGA event in Ocala. We also want to play golf in the area. We are flying into Orlando and would like to find a place to stay where we can cook/bbq at home. Looking at Residence Inn in Ocala (may be booked already) or Gainesville. Any opinions or suggestions for golf and/or lodging? Thanks.

Residence Inns are usually very nice. Gainesville is 45 minutes drive from Ocala. We usually stay at the Marriott in Ocala but no kitchens there. Can't help with the golf altho I know there are some courses there. The nearby Villages also has some good courses, its to the south of Ocala and is a 55 & up community. You might look at www.vrbo.com to see if there are any condo or home rentals in the area in your budget. There is also a Homewood Suites in the area that has kitchenettes.

The residence inn is very nice but not sure where else might have kitchens.. of course many golf courses in the area and very many levels of price from the city owned course on silver springs blvd to Candler golf course in The Top of the World development [ 60-70 $] all online with pricing. bww post mentions the villages which might be a good choice for you. many courses, many restaurants, party every night, hotel rooms , etc the only negative a good 40 min to the tournament

Right now hotel rates are up because of the tournament. We looked at the Marriott where we usually stay and it is about $170 a night when we usually pay $120.
