West Palm Beach, Florida has been the epicenter of professional and celebrity golf for decades, and the PGA National Resort is where everyone who is anyone goes for a round of golf.
Aside from the incredible ocean view you get from the main course at the PGA National Resort, you also get to play some of the more difficult holes in the country. This is one of those American golf destinations every golfer should travel to at least once.
Hilton Head – South Carolina
You could go to Myrtle Beach and stay trendy in what could be one of the most exclusive golf vacation spots in the country, or you could have a better time by going to Hilton Head and enjoying the resort there instead. Hilton Head in South Carolina has been a premium golf destination for years and has hosted plenty of pro tournaments. The laid back atmosphere at this golf vacation spot continues to attract visitors from all over the world.
Poipu Bay Golf Course – Kauai, Hawaii
If you are going to golf in Hawaii, then go to the course that has been attracting the most visitors in the last few years. The Poipu Bay Golf Course in Kauai, Hawaii – designed by world famous course designer Robert Trent Jones – takes full advantage of the Hawaiian coast and the fact that there is not a lot of soft grass for a golf ball to land on.
Admire the panoramic view from almost every tee on this course, but be prepared to invest in a lot of golf balls – this course is difficult. But if you are looking for a golf vacation to remember, then Poipu Bay is the one.
The American Club Resort – Kohler, Wisconsin
It may be hard to schedule a tee time at the Whistling Straits course at the American Club Resort in Kohler, Wisconsin this August as it will be host to the PGA Championship. However, it is definitely worth the effort to make a tee time at another point in the summer. Aside from being a major resort with great amenities, the American Club Resort and the Whistling Straits golf course makes for an amazing and surprisingly affordable golf holiday.
The Broadmoor – Colorado Springs, Colorado
The Broadmoor is one of those rare gems that features expansive greens and a breathtaking view. Nestled in near nature trails and natural springs, this resort in Colorado Springs puts you really in touch with nature. Along with all of that, you have a course that has hosted professional tournaments, but remains one of the best kept golfing secrets in the United States.
International Bonus: Old Course at St. Andrews – St. Andrews, Scotland
