Located in Colorado Springs, this resort features 3 courses. Take note that 2 of the courses are closed part of the year, and 1 is year-round. The resort also features a spa, as well as numerous activities to ensure the whole family has a great time.
If you are trying to plan an unforgettable golf get-away, Pebble Beach will probably be the top choice. World renowned is an understatement for this destination, as any golfer knows. In fact Jack Nicklaus once said, “If I had only one more round to play, I would choose to play it at Pebble Beach.” It is a bit expensive, but if you have the resources, do it.
The Ritz-Carlton, Dove Mountain
It’s not everyday that you encounter Saguaro cacti on the links, and that is one thing that makes this course stand out. A short drive from Tucson, this resort offers some absolutely fantastic views. In total, the resort offers “81 holes of Desert Golf”, which is nothing to shake a stick at… or a golf club in this case.
Bandon Dunes Golf Resort
Boasting six separate golf courses, a practice center, six restaurants and 10 miles of hiking trails, the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort is an excellent option. There is also wind surfing as well as fishing less than 10 miles away. If you want options during your vacation, Bandon is a strong choice all around.
The President Country Club
The President Country Club in West Palm Beach, Florida is another great option. One thing that stood out about their website were the detailed videos they have that show what you can expect on each hole of the two courses. The price is also is quite affordable considering the quality of the courses. Overall, it isn’t Pebble Beach, but it is definitely recommended if you want a nice golf vacation without breaking the bank.
