Are you planning a vacation around your love of golf? If so, then you’ve got to check out these top rated golf resorts!
With more than 24 million golfers playing at major courses every year, golf has never been more popular. One of the most exciting vacations for golfers is to plan a stay at one of the great golf resorts in the country.
Here are 4 you should consider this year.
1. Pebble Beach Resort
If you’re a major golf fan, staying and playing at the legendary Pebble Beach is a once in a lifetime experience. You’ll be bragging to your friends for years about what a fun trip you had no matter how you end up playing.
The Inn at Spanish Bay isn’t the cheapest place to stay near Pebble Beach but it’s by far one of the best. While most courses are supposed to be on a 10-year rotation, the USGA often breaks tradition to have the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach.
Staying here will be a fantastic and memorable trip for any active golfer. It’ll feel like a far-off getaway that you won’t need your passport for.
2. The American Club
During the spring and summer, this midwestern club and resort is a great place to play. Located in Kohler, Wisconsin, they’ve had two PGAs and consistent U.S. Women’s Open tournaments here.
For an avid golfer, the room rates near $400 will be well worth the experience. When you play Whistling Straits and face the challenge of the bunkers there, you’ll know you’re swinging where the pros have been before.
3. Sea Island
Sea Island in Georgia offers gorgeous resorts where you’ll get a room with a view and first crack at some of the best golfing in the southern states.
There are 54 holes of golf scattered throughout this resort area, meaning you’ll be able to play a wide variety of courses for days on end. If you’re ready, you can take a few lessons with some of the teaching players who make their time at the resort.
Choose between Mike Shannon, Todd Anderson, Gale Peterson, and more when you sign up for courses. For just around $500, you get a room that’s comfortable and cozy enough to prepare you for another day of golfing in the morning.
4. The Greenbrier
If you’re looking to make a short trip from the New York, Philadelphia, or Washington D.C. area, this is the spot for you. Located in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, the Greenbrier is more affordable than other resorts with golfing that’s just as good.
Because this is such a popular destination for golfers, you can book a seat soon on a passenger training that runs nonstop from D.C. to town. In just 5 hours, you’ll be transported to an entirely new golfing environment. And with rooms that hover around the $350 mark, you’ll be playing for less than any other resort around.
If you’re looking to plan a trip abroad but want to play in the meantime, this is the trip for you.
Golf Resorts Have Much More Than Golf
Because they encourage you to travel with your family, golf resorts often offer more than just golfing. You can take your family swimming, out for a hike in a nearby region, or shopping in town.
