Overview

Ranging from the home of golf in St Andrews, Scotland to the breathtaking Kauri Cliffs in New Zealand, there are twenty-five destination golf courses presented to suit various tastes and abilities. There are actually more courses covered as some of those featured provide access to other links in the area. Destinations include Casa de Campo, the Caribbean's most popular golf resort, which boasts one of the world's best courses among the three on the grounds. The terrain is breathtaking, and many shots are played right over the Caribbean Sea. Another exciting place, Cabo del Sol in Mexico, is a golfer's dream resort. The Ocean Course, known as the "Pebble Beach of Baja," has a signature design by Jack Nicklaus with seven holes to be played along the coast. The Desert Course designed by Tom Weiskopf has a target-style layout weaving through a desert landscape with sweeping views of the Sea of Cortés from every hole. The course facilities are as superior as the courses themselves and include experienced caddies to guide you through the terrain; golf lessons; the use of Callaway clubs; separate putting, chipping, and pitching greens; and practice tees.

To help you select a golfing vacation, the author fully describes and illustrates each place with a lively text and one hundred full-color photographs. He also provides a map of the course, gives pro's tips, and suggests the best time of year to visit. All accommodations are pre-arranged. You have the option to make reservations yourself, based on the information given, or you can choose to get in touch with the specialist golfing holiday companies listed who will make all the arrangements for you, from booking your flights andhotels to reserving all your tee-off times during your stay.

If you want to combine a passion for golf with a holiday destination, this book will help you find an exceptional vacation.
