Our Top 5 U.S. Golf Vacations
From ocean-view vistas and wind-swept sand dunes, to tall pine forests and rolling green fairways, we highlight some of the best golf vacations the United States has to offer…
1. Pebble Beach, California
What better place to start than the sunny state of California and the most highly rated public golf course in the United States- Pebble Beach Golf Links?
With its jaw-dropping location where land meets sea, perfect your tee-off on the beautifully set-out 18-hole course.
As host to five U.S Opens, Pebble Beach is world-renowned for its impeccable course structure and accompanying resort amenities.
Enjoy one of America’s greatest golf vacations with fine-dining, spa treatments, the spectacular 17-mile drive and world-class accommodation to boot
2. Pacific Dunes, Oregon
For a golf course a little less structured, but equally breathtaking, take some time out at Pacific Dunes.
Designed by Tom Doak and open to the public in 2001, Pacific Dunes is well-known as one of the most naturally beautiful golf vacations in the U.S.
The landscape of Pacific Dunes appears rugged and untouched, with bunkers and sand dunes which frame the horizon as they would have hundreds of years ago.
While the course is a short one, the landscape makes for the perfect golfing challenge, most especially with a Pacific off-shore wind thrown into the mix.
After your round, enjoy the onsite massage center, sauna, and whirlpool, or take to the outdoors with a hiking trail, go bird watching, kite surfing and more.
3. The Ocean Course, South Carolina
Lauded as one of the most difficult courses outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland due to its exposure to wind, this is a true golfer’s challenge.
The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island is one of four courses across the U.S. to have hosted each PGA of America’s golfing championships.
Constructed in 1991, the course has been designed as two-in-one, catering for both easterly and westerly Atlantic winds. Here, you have unobstructed views over the cliff edge, across the Atlantic coastline.
This is a destination away from it all and a chance to take in the surrounding beauty, nature, and wildlife of this stunning region of South Carolina.
4. Shadow Creek, Las Vegas
Located in North Las Vegas, Shadow Creek is a change of scenery from wind-swept sand dunes and pristine coastline.
Sculpted within the empty desert flatland of Nevada, the 350-acre site is surrounded by lush greenery, adding a true sense of privacy and serenity to your game.
Originally opened in 1989, Shadow Creek was known as one of the most exclusive golf courses in the world, however, it is now far more accessible.
Now open to MGM Resorts International guests, this fine course offers a one-of-a-kind, intimate round of golf for the ultimate golfing enthusiast.
5. TPC Sawgrass, Florida
This list would not be same without featuring one of the most recognizable golf courses, home to the Players Championship and backdrop of the PGA Tour headquarters.
The TPC Sawgrass golf course is as famous as it is challenging, home to two PGA championship courses, the Player’s Stadium and Dye’s Valley Course.
Winding through North Florida’s naturally beautiful landscape, you have access to world-class dining, spa treatments, and accommodation when vacationing at TPC Sawgrass.
