Golf Resorts, Where to Play in the USA, Canada, Mexico, Costa Rica & the Caribbean

Creator: Jim Nicol, Barbara Nicol | Sports & Recreation - 2001

Hundreds of resorts are described in this book, with details including fees, course profile (par, hazards, yardage), resident pro information, accommodations (with prices), dining options and equipment rentals.

Publisher: Hunter Pub Inc

About this book
Golf resorts--it's a specialized niche for a savvy group that knows what it wants. What they want is golf, so the Nicols have devoted pages of attention to yardage and par, green fees, and special course features for hundreds of golf courses from Canada to Costa Rica. But there are other facets to consider as well, because the point here is to take a vacation, a golf vacation, where you get to luxuriate in your scenic vistas, eat your sumptuous meals, and play your 18 holes, too. From Casa De Campo Resort in the Dominican Republic to the Hound Ears Club in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, there are resorts for all sorts, with rustic lodges or posh hotels; full-scale gourmet pampering or low-key environments; all-golf, all-the-time atmospheres; or resorts that offer the works--tennis, fishing, sailing, or skiing--for the spouses who just aren't as intent on golf, perhaps, as you. The important thing is that all types of golf holidays are possible, and the Nicols have done the legwork so all you have to do is browse, choose, and make the reservations. "... the most useful guidebook... a great reference." -- The Traveling Golfer "If you love golf, Golf Resorts is for you." -- Relax Magazine " Make sure you have a copy on hand. This tome is the only pre-trip guide you'll need to research not only golf courses, but nearby lodging, restaurants, and additional recreation - for after-golf or non-golfing spouses. The book covers more than 600 courses. The authors have rated the top 50, breaking those down into 38 large and 12 small resorts." -- Northwest Airlines WorldTraveler Magazine "A guide written by golfers for golfers. Hundreds of resorts are described in this book, with details including fees, course profile (par, hazards, yardage), resident pro information, accommodations (with prices), dining options and equipment rentals. All establishments are open to the public." -- Amazon reviewer

Possibly the Best Golf Vacation Ever

Creator: James C. Coomer | Sports & Recreation - 2006-03

Written with humor and a colorful description of Scotland, this book could serve as a guide for others contemplating a similar experiment.

About this book
Traveling with ones wife can be enjoyable. Traveling with ones wife who is a non-golfer on a golfing vacation can be an adventure. Traveling with a non-golfing wife on a golf vacation to Scotland in an experiment. For the golfer, the needs are simple: golf clubs, golf balls, and a change of clothes. For a non-golfing spouse, every potentiality must be anticipated so that appearance and attire is always appropriate. For the golfer, food and accommodations are utilitarian. For the non-golfing wife, where one eats and where one stays determines what one wears. For the golfer, the elements are to be endured. For the non-golfer, they are to be avoided. For the golfer, travel between golf courses should be the shortest possible route. To the non-golfing wife, the route should be the most scenic with serendipitous stops along the way for sightseeing.(Possibly) The Best (Golf) Vacation Ever chronicles the planning, preparation, and execution of a golfing holiday to Scotland of a golfer husband and his non-golfing wife. From the Royal Dornoch Golf Club in the north of Scotland to Turnberry on the southern coast, the couple accommodates each others requirements to maximize their individual aspirations of what a Scottish holiday should entail. Written with humor and a colorful description of Scotland, this book could serve as a guide for others contemplating a similar experiment.

    0 5/5 Adam (NJ) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Planning the Ultimate Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation (A Golf Vacation Insider Book) (Hardcover) This was money well spent. A quick read but with tons of useful advice - kinda like having a cheat sheet for setting up a vacation. Easy to make decisions based on the detailed info. Love the interviews with the golf course architects as it's nice to hear them describe their work in their own words for a change. If the courses are half as nice as these amazing photos, we're in for a treat! Bottom line: my friends and I have never been to Bandon but we chose it for our yearly golf trip and now we're confident we'll get the most out of it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 9, 2006

Unfortunately, after reading I felt like it was a waste of time and money. Not much in the book to help you plan your trip that isn't readily available elsewhere for free. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 20, 2011

    For Dummies

    The best travel book I've read so far!

    Normally, I try to avoid these "Dummies" guides, as I'm just the slightest bit offended by the idea that I'm a "dummy" just because I don't know EVERYTHING. But after flipping through books at the local bookstore looking for a good guidebook for my honeymoon trip to Oahu and Kauai next October, I finally decided on this one. It's got great maps, for one thing, as well as extensive lists of hotels, places to eat, and things to do. Because the descriptions are full of personal anecdotes, I really trust that Leas has seen and done it all herself and she's being straight with me about what she thinks -- traditional travel guides always make me nervous because they're written in the third person. If I'm going to spend ... on a vacation, I really want to know what things I should do and what things I shouldn't! Possibly the greatest feature, though, is the fact that at least 75% of the entries for places and activities have web site URLs.

    A Very Good General Reference

    "Hawaii For Dummies" is a good general reference, especially for first time visitors to Hawaii. I visit Hawaii on business about four times a month, and have found the information in this guide to be generally quite accurate. In any guidebook there are obviously things that are out of date, and that's especially true in a guide this compendious. Most of the inaccuracies are prices that have increased, though in my personal experiences none of the increases I have seen has been ridiculously out of line with inflation. I find that the diagrams are good for general planning, but a dedicated map of the island you are visiting is necessary for navigation.The book has several useful features including the Post-It flags to mark pages of interest (a very useful feature) and a "Quick Concierge" section in the Appendix which is a quick reference to important phone numbers and Internet addresses. The book discusses customs, weather, selecting things to see, and choosing an island. I... 4/5 Robert I. Hedges - See all my reviews, December 22, 2006

    The best travel book I've ever owned

    I have traveled a lot, and own a lot of travel books, but have never felt compelled to write a review of one-- until now.Three years ago, while planning our two-week honeymoon to Maui and Kauai, I bought a LOT of Hawaii books. In the planning stage, I kept finding myself returning to this book. Unlike Fodors and Frommers, the author actually makes JUDGMENTS about places and activities and tells you what the BEST of each category are. Imagine that-- rather than just providing a rote listing of the hotels on an island with a short description (and maybe a star or two), the author actually tells you which hotels to go to if you want serious romance, which are best for families, and which rooms to request (or not). Rather than listing activities, the author actually tells you which are the safest and most reliable helicopter companies, which are the best companies to to take for a private, romantic and uncrowded sailing trip.

    Fun, steamy read

    0 5/5 Natasha Moore - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Guys With Wives: Hawaiian Golf Vacation (Kindle Edition) Guys with Wives: Hawaiian Golf Vacation was a super fun read. Usually I like to skip through erotic romances and get to all the juicy details, but I really enjoyed reading this entire book. It was fun watching the relationships between the guys unfold into more than just sex. This was a super steamy read with a real story behind it which is often times hard to find in erotic writing. The erotic scenes were extremely spicy, and got my blood pumping. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good m/m erotic short story. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , October 12, 2014

    Finally!

    0 5/5 jcw@teleport.com (Portland, Oregon) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Unofficial Guide to Golf Vacations in the Eastern U.S. (Paperback) Finally a travel guidebook that offers something other than meaningless fluff! Passov is a great storyteller who relates what's its really like to play some of the best golf courses in the eastern U.S. You'll want to clean the grass off your shoes after browsing the chapters. In addition to honest and informed opinions on the golf courses, Passov also provides an encyclopedic amount of information on resorts, restaurants, and other activities in the vicinity of the golf courses. If all guidebooks were this breezily written, entertaining, and full of hardore travel info, you'd never have a bad vacation or a disappointing round of golf. My only hope is that Passov will cover the rest of the country-- and the world-- soon so I know where to go next for a great golf vacation. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 17, 2000
