Golf Vacations

With more than 20,000 public courses around the world, the possibilities can be endless when it comes to planning your next golf vacation. Whether you're a regular on the links or a newcomer, the tranquility and natural beauty of a course can instantly put mind and body at ease. Embrace a leisurely round of 18 during a family vacation, guy's getaway, or solo adventure – you may find it refreshing no matter what.

Perhaps your idea of a perfect golf outing takes place at a serene course nestled in the mountains. Imagine stepping onto perfectly manicured greens on a crisp fall morning, the sun peaking over the hill and vibrant autumn leaves. Or maybe you're envisioning a seaside golf adventure where lush palm trees, brilliant blue skies and warm ocean breezes greet you at every picturesque hole.

You and your family can play through a full 18 holes or opt for a shorter round of nine – your golf outing doesn't have to be an all-day affair. If you are a newcomer to the sport, or just want to work on technique, you can stop by a course's driving range and rent a bucket of balls and a driver to practice. Many courses also offer on-site professional instructors who can help provide tips on swing, form and stance.

No matter how well or how long you play, refuel after your round with a gourmet meal at the clubhouse or on-site restaurant. Be sure to peruse the pro shop and snag a souvenir on your way out to commemorate your trip!
