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

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

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.

    Bandon here I come!

    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

    Not very helpful

    0 2/5 dk - See all my reviews This review is from: Planning the Ultimate Bandon Dunes Golf Vacation (A Golf Vacation Insider Book) (Hardcover) Was hoping this would give me a lot of advice to plan a trip to Bandon. 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

    It's a cute quick read....

    0 4/5 JP Czar - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: (Possibly) The Best (Golf) Vacation Ever (Paperback) This is a paperback book of about 120 pages. It chronicles a ten day golf trip to Scotland of a husband and wife (who doesn't play golf).I suspect that most folks would be bored silly with the book and it's tone, which is descriptive with only small stabs at humor. However, the story overall is cute and, after reading a lot about golf and it's history in Scotland it was nice to read a story about someone actually playing golf.To his credit, the author doesn't make the mistake of writing the minutae of each hole and stroke played...Enjoy... 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 3, 2012

    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

    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
