Top 10 Golf Resort Getaways!
Looking for a weekend getaway for an upcoming bachelor party or long awaited guys weekend? Well here are the top 10 best golf resorts in the US to get your swing on!
Bandon Dunes: Oreagon.
It’s hard to beat the scenery at this remote resort’s multiple Oregon coast courses, which first opened in 1999. “It’s like Ireland and Scotland but you don’t need a passport,” Ginella says. The links-style courses don’t have trees, and can be enjoyed by all skill levels.
Pinehurst: North Carolina
The “cradle of American golf” has been hosting getaways since 1895, and will keep visitors busy for days. While Donald Ross’ legendary No. 2 course is revered, the resort has nine separate courses sprawling across the pine and sandhill landscape.
Pebble Beach: California
You’ll need a big budget for a pilgrimage to the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula, where a round with cart starts at $495. “It’s considered the No. 1 public golf course in America.” The resort also has several other courses to keep your group on the greens for days.
Sea Island: Georgia
If your goal is improving your game, bring your group to this gracious oceanfront resort. “They have a dream team of golf instructors. A lot of PGA tour players live around here”.
Greenbrier: West Virginia
This Blue Ridge Mountain getaway began hosting guests in 1788, and added a golf course a century later. It even has a secret bunker where Congress planned to convene in case of nuclear war – a getaway of an entirely different nature.
With four golf courses and high-end trappings, this five-diamond Midwest resort will appeal to groups with a healthy budget. The standout Lake Michigan course, Whistling Straits, hosted the 2015 PGA Championship.
Omni Barton Creek: Texas
Ginella loves this affordable resort not just for its golf, but the entire package. “I send people there and they have a blast and memorable trips. They have four golf courses, a very nice hotel.
Ginella says this resort in “middle-of-nowhere Florida” is worth the trip, 50 miles southeast of Tampa. The two courses are geared for the walking golfer, with limited times for carts.
Talking Stick: Arizona
“It’s got a good hotel with good quality golf.” It’s also close to TopGolf, a growing national competitive golf-skills complex using balls embedded with microchips.
Kiawah Island: South Carolina
This deluxe golf resort will appeal to groups of couples and families, along with a gang of guys. The amenities are through the roof.” But golfers must be up to the challenge if they’re tackling the Pete Dye Ocean Course.
