Planning a golf getaway?
Whether you enjoy the challenge of beating your own score, being outside in fresh air, or just need to relieve some stress while hanging with your buds, the great thing about golf is that anyone can literally play the game. And, let’s be real, it’s the only sport where you can drink whiskey while you play!
We’ve compiled a list of the best golf destinations in America for you to tee off!
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is always a golden choice for a quick golf getaway! It’s actually known as the “Golf Capital of the World.” You’ll have access to breathtaking scenery, clean beaches and over 100 golf courses for every playing level. Sounds like heaven! And as a bonus, you can turn it into a longer vacation or double it as a spring break trip. With amazing restaurants, shopping, endless entertainment options, and the ocean nearby, how can you say no?
For a more quieter setting, head to Hilton Head, South Carolina! You’ll see the wonderful views of the ocean (maybe even catch a sunset or two) and have your options of over 50 golf courses! Consider the Heron Point golf course by Pete Dye at the Sea Pines Resort! Spend an afternoon playing 18 holes then go out to a nice dinner. Make sure to pack your bathing suit and sunscreen!
Texas is quite popular for golf. In fact, you can find over a thousand golf courses to choose from within the state. San Antonio is a great city to combine golf with other fun activities such as visiting The Alamo. Check out Palmer Course at La Cantera for a challenging course and the beautiful, natural setting. If you had one course to choose in Texas, this would be our pick!
Las Vegas, Nevada or also known as “Sin City” can be a great spot for your next golf adventure! Outside of The Strip, you’ll find many award-winning courses! Take a break from the crowd, casinos, and parties and go golfing! Consider heading to Bear’s Best Las Vegas, which is made up of 18 holes hand selected by retired American professional golfer, Jack Nicklaus. Also, check out Shadow Creek, in North Las Vegas.
If you’re not big on Las Vegas but still want a “desert” experience, head over to Scottsdale, Arizona. There are close to 200 courses within the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, so you will have options! Experience two 18-hole courses at Troon North Golf Club with an amazing landscape, green grass, and cold beer with your buds.
Enjoy year-round play with over 100 golf courses in beautiful, natural locations. Tampa, Florida is the perfect spot to get a little sun, play a few rounds and explore the nightlife. Consider Saddlebrook Resort to tee off this spring! You can choose from two golf courses (both designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer) — the Saddlebrook Course or the Palmer Course. After your game, relax with lunch or a nice spa treatment while you’re there. You are on vacation!
