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.

Golf Resorts, Where to Play in the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean

Creator: Jim Nicol, Barbara Nicol | Sports & Recreation - 2001-01-01

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 Publishing, 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

    Pleasures and Palaces: The Unexpected Glories of the World's Golf Resorts

    Most people who see the title of this immense book on the bookstore (or Internet) display probably think it is a book about golf. Well, it is....and it isn't. Yes the destinations here magnificently photographed by Stefan Maiwald (who also appropriately supplies the texts) are about golf courses, but due to the sensitivity of teNeues Press this book is more about landscapes and architectural elegance with a hefty dollop of personal accommodation images tossed into this colorful world tour of some of the very finest places to indulge the golfer and fully please those who accompany the golfer.There is a very fine summary on the cover leaf that states the book's purpose well: `Being one with the sport. Unconditional beauty. Uncompromising luxury. Whether they are located in the desert, in the forest, or on the ocean, whether they embody exuberant oriental splendor or minimalistic design, one thing is clear: The best golf resorts in the world offer entertainment,... 5/5 Grady Harp (Los Angeles, CA United States) - See all my reviews, May 10, 2012

    I was disappointed with this product

    1/5 raync - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: 21 Secrets to Playing America's Top 100 Golf Courses (Paperback) I was disappointed with this product. Granted, it was purchased as a gift for an avid golfer and I've not yet gotten his opinion. I am not a golfer. From the picture I thought it would be a small book. However, it's actually a thin paper publication, somewhere slightly above a pamphlet and slightly below a magazine. I recognize that you're buying the information, and maybe it's great. But it's really a printed spreadsheet of contact information of golf courses. I had thought there would be some articles, photos, and recommendations or tips, but not so. I would have returned it, but assumed that I wouldn't get my money back since it's such a small publication where the information could easily be copied. I recommend saving your money and instead asking your golf pro for connections to play any courses you're interested in visiting. I have never given an online review so I hope this helps others considering this purchase. Wish I was writing something positive!

    Descriptions seem generic

    2/5 Kevin Walsh - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Ireland Golf: What You Need to Know About Golf Vacation and Ireland Golf Courses (Kindle Edition) The course and site descriptions seem generic...interchangeable among the courses described. It seems that little effort was devoted to share stories, lore or background about each course other than a few cursory facts.

    Good golf guide

    5/5 Anonymous1 - See all my reviews This review is from: Golfing Ireland: A Complete Guide To Links And Leisure (Paperback) I bought the Kindle version of this as we went to Ireland recently. It was nice to have a basic review of many of the courses and what I really liked was some of them had the rules listed. A good example is the Ballybunion Golf club where we went. I liked that the rules and even cart rules were listed. Many of the chapters also include a restaurant nearby. The history of some of the clubs, when started, traditions etc are also here. Helpful when in a foreign country. There are no phone listings for any of the clubs, but we got that from the hotel where we stayed.The downside is that it is black and white..but that is Kindle right? So the map included of the courses was a little difficult to see but we only went to a couple of the ones near where we stayed. The map includes all the courses in Ireland.All in all for the price it was a good deal. Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 21, 2010
