One of the great lures of a golf holiday in the US is the fact it’s littered with some of the most iconic courses on the PGA Tour, where we’ve all watched the game’s best battle it out from the comforts of our lounge rooms. You can follow in the footsteps of Tiger and GMac to Pebble Beach, arguably one of the finest golf courses on the planet. The Marriott Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa’s legendary Stadium Course was built to test the game’s best and it certainly does that with two of the best closing holes in the business, particularly the infamous par-3 17th hole with its iconic island green. Or perhaps you fancy yourself against the Blue Monster, the headline act at the Trump National Doral and home of the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Innisbrook, home of the Transitions Championship, is a comprehensive resort with four outstanding golf courses, while the course at Harbour Town Golf Links is a firm favourite with Tour players. There is something to thrill every serious golfer in the US.
The city of Naples in Florida is a charming holiday destination known for its beautiful beaches, high-end shopping, world-class culture, sophisticated dining and amazing golf courses. The chilled pace of the city is perfect for a relaxing break. Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is the region’s only beachfront resort with on-site golf courses. Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa is an outstanding venue with the world class Raptor Bay Golf Club on its doorstep. There are plenty of activities for guests, including dolphin watching and sunset cruises. Hilton Head in South Carolina has a proper golfing community feel, with the friendly locals a welcome complement to the world class courses at Harbour Town Links and Palmetto Dunes. Away from the course, there is plenty to do: from visiting art galleries and theatres, to biking, hiking, fishing and kayaking. Palm Springs is a popular year-round destination with couples seeking excellent desert golf, fine wines and relaxing. The spectacular setting is matched by the quality of the resorts, with the 5* Mission Hills Resort a particular favourite.
Las Vegas… need we say more? The City of Sin is bursting with clubs and bars, not to mention the 30 casinos which line the iconic Strip. But there is far more to Vegas than just gambling, with excellent shows and live artists performing on a regular basis. Myrtle Beach in South Carolina is like an adult’s playground for golf and fun, with more than 100 accessible golf courses in the area and countless bars and nightclubs. Scottsdale is another nightlife and golfing mecca, helped by its hugely desirable climate which sees 314 days of sunshine each year and average temperatures of 22°C. Downtown Scottsdale has an abundance of places to go and if you’re a sports fan, you can catch the Arizona Diamondbacks (MLB), Phoenix Suns (NBA) or Arizona Cardinals (NFL) in action.
California is home to arguably the best collection of luxury golf resorts in the US. With household names like Cordevalle, Pelican Hill and Pebble Beach, this is the state to visit for a first-class resort experience. Charleston and Kiawah Island both have their share of deluxe hotels and resorts. Stay at the 5* luxury resort at Kiawah Island, home to five top class golf courses including the Ocean Course which played host to the 1991 Ryder Cup. The Francis Marion Hotel offers unparalleled views over Charleston’s historic district, which has great history, old-fashioned shops and horse and carriage rides (the equivalent of Edinburgh, Bath or Harrogate). The Trump National Doral is a name which sells itself, with five courses (including the famous Blue Monster), extensive spa and leisure facilities, plus the Trump stamp of luxury approval.
