Vacation doesn’t have to be, especially when you want to retreat for relaxation and rejuvenation. That’s the beauty of the spa and golf resort. Many getaways combine the ultimate bliss of a harmonizing spa experience with the refreshing challenge of a unique golf course, plus many resorts offer the pampering or exciting amenities to satisfy the younger members of your family, too.

Instead of green-side bunkers, the rice paddy fields and rock outcroppings serve as the hazards. Instead of a championship golf course, try a course where every hole is designed by a different golf champion. If you want a challenge, we’ve found a course on every continent to make you miss your usual obstacles and pull out the golf legend inside of you.
Penina Golf & Resort Algarve, Portimão, Portugal
Legend Golf & Safari Resort, Limpopo, South Africa
The first 18-hole course to be built in the Algarve, the par-73 Sir Henry Cotton Championship Course (designed and built by the 3-time British Open winner) is gorgeous – and unforgiving. But why play an easy course in a sport whose very purpose is to break your heart? You’ll find subtle slopes and raised greens – not to mention streams, precarious ditches, and water hazards that are ideal for throwing your mangled clubs into.
One of the planet’s most unique layouts, each of the 18 holes of the Signature Course was designed by a different champion golfer, including top names like Bernard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Justin Rose, Vijay Singh, Sergio Garcia, and Retief Goosen. You’ll find amazingly wide fairways and immaculate USGA standard greens. The par-72 gem is shadowed by the enigmatic Hanglip Mountain, the peak of which is where golfers find the tee for the amazing “Extreme 19th” hole, 400 yards away – and 400 yards down!
Cypress Lakes Resort by Oaks, Hunter Valley, New South Wales
Fairmont Scottsdale Princess, Scottsdale, Arizona
Banyan Tree Lang Co, Danang, Vietnam
Located in the beautiful Hunter Valley wine region, this verdant par-72 course created by Steve Smyers offers stunning panoramic views of the vineyards and the surrounding Brokenback Mountain range. The front nine is a links-style layout, while the back nine’s sloping fairways are lined with trees. The course also offer live measurement and layout data from your golf cart display. The system can also link to other cards, so your whole group can compare their results.
Designed by the team of Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish, the TPC Scottsdale Stadium Course is the home of the annual PGA Tour Waste Management Phoenix Open – the largest attended golf event in the world. It’s a par-71 desert course with breathtaking views of the McDowell Mountains and dramatic holes, especially the 15th, where water surrounds the island green. Or you can fire away on the Champions Course next door, where rolling Bermuda grass fairways wind over natural ravines and picturesque foothills.
When Laguna Lang Co Golf Club’s designer Sir Nick Faldo first saw the landscape to be developed into an 18-hole course, he described it as a “stunning and very diverse piece of terrain with an impressive array of natural design features.” That was an understatement: the course, nestled between the East Sea and the Truong Son Mountains south of Hue, incorporates a rice paddy, woodlands, beach, rivers and creeks, and rock outcrops. In other words, everything but the kitchen sink!
5 Important Roles Travel Agents Fill Whether youâ€™re searching for your next vacation destination or know exactly where you want to go, booking travel is a commitment, one that can be a thrilling adventure. But travel also has its challenges, and thatâ€™s why you want your agent with you through it all. Your travel agent is more than a friendly face.
Matchmaker Travel agents excel at finding the perfect destination and resort for even the most discerning traveler, and as the ultimate matchmakers, they can pair you with that all-inclusive property, luxury golf and spa resort, or family-friendly destination. For honeymoon and romantic escapes as well as gastronomic getaways, agents will choose a resort with special amenities or award-winning restaurants. No matter what you prefer, a travel agent can create a memorable vacation from your personal tastes and desires.
Life Saver We all want the perfect vacation every time we travel, but sometimes things happen. Maybe it’s a series of delays, or the weather doesn’t cooperate. If you booked without a travel agent, you spend hours on the phone or on line at the ticket counter hoping to find an available flight to nowhere before connecting home. But if you booked with a travel agent, they’re on the phone with an airline finding you the best possible routes without the hours of frustration.
Travel Genius From rooms with the best views to construction notices and upcoming events, travel agents have the knowledge, connections, and experience to book you in your preferred room category and resort. Plus, if you’re traveling to multiple cities, islands, or countries, you’ll want a travel agent’s expertise to provide a smooth journey. Your travel agent will also advise if you need a passport, a visa, or both to get into that specific country, so you won’t be held up at customs or even denied entry.
Good Value A travel agent strives to get you the best value for your journey, which can mean exclusive packages, rooms in “sold-out” hotels, and possibly special arrangements or requests. Since agents know hoteliers, concierges, and other attendants personally, they are more likely to receive additional added value to ensure your enjoyment at the resort. Agents can also help you navigate traveler’s insurance to help you choose the best plan to suit your specific needs.
Time Saver A travel agent has the latest information about packages, property details, and new activities at their fingertips, usually sent to them by the hotels and destinations themselves. With years of experience and firsthand knowledge, travel agents save you countless hours upon the Internet and plan your trip with expertise no search engine can give. Plus, they’ll do price comparisons, provide insider tips, restaurant recommendations, and more, depending upon your preferences and destination.
