Links: The Best of GolfFor the adventurer in all of us, McGraw-Hill has published "The $500 Round of Golf: A Guide to Pilot-Friendly Golf Courses." The book highlights more than 100 unique and out-of-the-way tracks that are near or adjacent to small airports in the U.S., Canada and the French Caribbean.
For example, after buzzing the pro shop at Kokanee Springs Golf Course (pictured) in Crawford, British Columbia, you can settle onto the turf landing strip that sits directly across a small highway from the sixth tee, where you'll be sped out to the 6,604-yard, par-71 course.
Perhaps the only pilot-friendly course that can top Kokanee Springs for sheer beauty is Golf de St. Francois, in Guadeloupe, French Caribbean. This 6,755-yard, par-71 Robert Trent Jones Sr. design surrounds the St. Francois airport and runs along the azure waters of a large lagoon.
Regardless of which courses you choose, you can be sure getting there will be an interesting ride.
