Banff, Alberta Canada

Seen from the air, the Banff Springs brings new meaning to the word "majestic." It's as if an ancient castle has been plucked from a Scottish estate and set down in a river valley surrounded by the snow-dusted peaks of the Canadian Rockies. The "Castle in the Rockies" was constructed a century ago and is so authentic that any Scottish baron strolling its halls and great rooms would feel at...

La Romana, Dominican Republic

Casa de Campo means "country home," a humble phrase for a 7,000-acre Dominican Republic resort that began in the 1970s as a private retreat for Gulf+Western founder Charles Bluhdorn and friends. After his death, it was bought by a group of investors including the Cuban-American Fanjul family (the world's leading sugar barons) and opened to the public as "the Caribbean's most complete resort."...

Bandon, OR

Is it possible to make a movie that captures the essence of golf in Great Britain without crossing the pond? The makers of a film based on the 1972 Michael Murphy classic, Golf in the Kingdom, thought so. They used Bandon Dunes as a stand-in for Scotland's famous links courses.

Hot Springs, VA

One of the grande dames of American golf resorts, The Homestead was built in 1766 as an inn in the Allegheny foothills of western Virginia. Because of the area's warm springs (which still feed the historic indoor swimming pool), it grew into a popular spa resort during the 1800s. Destroyed by fire, the hotel was rebuilt of red brick, with east and west wings flanking a clock tower....

Hilton Head Island, SC

Nearly 50 years ago, law student Charles Fraser envisioned an eco-friendly, master-planned resort community on Hilton Head Island. His Sea Pines Resort became a reality and a benchmark for upscale resort developments. The beachfront resort occupies 5,000 acres on the island's southern tip—a peninsula bordered by the Atlantic and Calibogue Sound. True to Fraser's wishes, environmental...

Televised tournaments such as the U.S. Open on Pinehurst No. 2 have put the resort on every golfer's bucket list, and the reality usually measures up for those who make the pilgrimage.

Pinehurst began...

When the snow melts in the spring, it becomes one of Canada's top golf destinations and one of the most popular summer resorts in North America.

In 1989, the Fairmont Chateau Whistler opened as a year-round luxury hotel in the...

Austin, TX

In 2008, The New York Times praised Texas Hill Country as one of the best vacation spots in the country, comparing its rolling green hills and miles of vineyards to the south of France. At the heart of this oasis is the city of Austin and the Barton Creek Resort & Spa, home to the state's top two golf courses—Fazio Foothills and Fazio Canyons. Playing second fiddle to these tough...
