Golf vacations can be luxurious getaways

Posted By Sean C On September 14, 2010 @ 7:00 am In Travel | 2 Comments

If my post about Las Vegas [1] golf courses has you thinking about a golf vacation, you might want to consider a luxury golf vacation [2]. There are many resorts all over the world with breathtaking golf courses, full service spas, luxurious accommodations and world-class service – which make the perfect romantic getaway for two. Here are a few of my favorites.

Four Season Scottsdale at Troon North
If you are like me you just got Goosebumps reading “Troon North”. The Troon North courses are two of the top in America and by staying at the Four Seasons Scottsdale you will have access to both The Pinnacle and The Monument. Built into the foothills of Scottsdale, Arizona [3] you will experience elevated tee boxes and gorgeous views of Pinnacle Peak. If you or your significant other is not a golfer, you can enjoy the 12,000 sq ft, full service spa! After golfing or a relaxing massage you can grab a famous margarita in the awarding winning “Phoenix” bar and take in the sun on the 6,000 sq ft pool. You also have 3 beautiful restaurants to choose from for your romantic dinner for two. How perfect does that sound?

Ritz–Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Montego Bay Jamaica
You can’t talk about luxury without mentioning Montego Bay, Jamaica [5]. Montego Bay has some of the nicest resorts and white sand beaches in the world. If you know anything about Ritz–Carlton Resorts you know that they put the “Ritz” in “Ritzy”. With 5 restaurants, 2 bars and a full service spa their reputation holds true at this resort. Partnered with the Ritz is the golf course called White Witch. Don’t be scared off by the name, it has some of the most beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea, and the course winds through the 5,000 acre Rose Hall Plantation surrounded by mountains.

Ritz–Carlton Kapalua, Maui
You might already recognize the golf here because of the PGA Tour Mercedes–Benz Championship. Ocean views and lush fairways describe this course well. One of the many signature holes is #18 a 663-yard par 5 that plays toward the ocean! The Bay is the other championship golf course in this resort. The favorite hole seems to be #5 a 205-yard par 5 where you have to carry 100 yards of the Pacific Ocean to reach the green. The Ritz-Carlton Kapalua [7] recently went through a $160 million renovation and has been awarded the AAA Five-Diamond award! With direct beach access and a new spa opening up this June there will be spa time for everyone! After your golf round, you can relax by the 10,000 sq foot pool with a cool drink from their pool bar. And did I mention the 6 restaurants?

I hope that these luxurious vacation ideas will give you both the much-needed getaway for two. Where do you like to take golf vacations?

Wishing you fairways and greens!
