Golf Holidays in the USA: Brave the New World

The United States of America is a wonderful playground for golf holidays.  Wherever you travel there are literally hundreds of golf courses and although there are a few very private establishments (Augusta for example) the vast majority of Golf Clubs are only too pleased to welcome visitors.  Americans are very focused on customer service, so from the moment you arrive at the Club to the moment you leave they will go out of their way to make sure that you "have a nice day".

Buggies (carts) are very nearly compulsory, however you may walk - although you may have some trouble convincing the staff that golf is a game often played on foot!  Out on the course there is always a drinks service that circulates, just what you need as temperatures can climb into the 100's.  In fact in Arizona some Clubs even have air-conditioned buggies!

Golf in Arizona (Grayhawk)

With so many golf courses to choose from standards have to be high to survive.  There is an abundance of land on the huge continent of North America and some of the golfing layouts sweep across vast tracts of wild terrain; others are residential developments with high quality housing backing onto the fairways.

In the warmer regions the golf courses are generally sown with Bermuda style grasses - which take a little getting used to (especially the rough).  However, many Golf Clubs use Bent grasses (or variations thereof) on their huge roller-coaster Greens - slick is not the word...

Wherever you decide upon for your American golf holiday, y'all have a whole lotta fun!

Golf holidays in Arizona

Phoenix and Scottsdale

A golfing fantasy land in the warmth and practically guaranteed sunshine of the Arizona desert.  Unbelievable courses where golf architecture has been seemingly sprayed onto the hot sands. 
The perfect winter getaway and incredible value in late Autumn as the Bermuda turns dormant and the Americans prefer not to play as the rough and fairways take on a brownish tinge.  Silly really as the courses are perfectly playable - in many regards the definition of the holes is even better: make hay while the sun shines we say!


Golf holidays in Alabama

Robert Trent Jones Trail

Many parts of Alabama are still frontierland with vast expanses of forest and marshlands still unbesmirched by the heavy hand of humandevelopments.  This makes for beautifully peaceful courses with just the wildlife and the crack of titanium on polyurethane-ionomer to rupture the stillness. 
Southern hospitality is legendary and rightly so, wherever you travel across this charming State people will welcome you with broad smiles and a genuine interest in you, your golf and your enjoyment of Alabama.

Guest Comments

"The trip you put together for us to New England, Boston and New York was wonderful.  We particularly enjoyed Taconic GC and the Westin hotel on Times Square!"
Mr. M. Dewhurst - Beds

"10/10. Thank you for a great holiday, we didn't want to leave.  More next year - only longer!"
Mr. J.A. Lilley - Exeter

"We had a great time in USA despite some very poor weather.
We liked the courses at Indian Wells and played 3 rounds in sunshine after frost delays.
The Hyatt Suite in Scottsdale was ideal, not the same level of facilities or service but it was clean, spacious and in a very convenient location. In Scottsdale it rained 5 days out of the 6 but we just managed to play all our golf. Buggies had to stay on the cart path which is something I dislike and we got very wet one day but we persevered and enjoyed our games. I thought the courses were in superb condition and a joy to play; my wife found one or two carries over the desert a bit long. We did not play Monument at North Troon as they decided to put four balls on that course and two balls on the Pinnacle course which was a delight.
Westin Hotel in San Diego was fine and in a great location.
Park Hyatt Aviara was fantastic with another fantastic golf course. There is another LPGA competition there over Easter which we will watch on TV to see how the course should be played!
Ojai Valley Inn is a magnificent property in a beautiful setting. We had to give up our first round of golf after a few holes due to torrential rain but had a very enjoyable round the next day. Some very hard holes but a good course to play which demands concentration all the time. Thank you for the chocolates which were given to us on arrival under your name.
We will probably go again next year to see our family and play some more golf. To be ready to plan a trip can you give us a rough idea of the cost of each of the hotels and golf please?"
Mr. R. Burgess - Surrey
