Fat Guy Note :  There's only one golf course in the Florida Keys: Key West GC .

Bars To Hit En route to Key West:

Carribean Cafe in Key Largo ( www.barsofkeywest.com ).

Also, Islamorada sounds like it would be worth an overnight stay on the way to or from Key West, as the place is flush with waterfront tiki bars.  Hit Islamorada's Holiday Isle Resort ( www.holidayisle.com ) for a cocktail or three.  Their original Tiki Bar claims to be where the Rum Runner was invented, and their Rum Rummers Island Bar is a cross between a Swiss Family Robinson hideaway and a pirate ship crow's nest.  You also can't pass up an Islamorada bar called Kokomo's (yeah, I know, the Beach Boys tune is now stuck in my head too), the Wreck Bar (shaped like a shipwreck), or Jaws Raw Bar (waterside casual seafood).  Also in Islamorada, Golf Digest likes the Lazy Days Oceanfront Bar for waterfront tables, excellent conch chowder, the fresh grouper sandwich, and the best Key Lime pie in the Keys. And finally, there's Lor-e-lei Cabana Bar ( www.loreleifloridakeys.com ), a tasty slightly upperscale joint, hard by the water with a thatch roof bandstand, palm trees, and spectacular sunsets.
