Sebonack Golf Club
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the Sebonack Golf Club in historic Southampton, New York, is that the site was available. Good luck finding an undeveloped property as stunning as this 300-acre, partially wooded dunescape along a bluff overlooking Great Peconic Bay on Long Island’s South Shore.

The Golf Club at Briar's Creek
A languid, expansive quality pervades South Carolina Lowcountry marsh and it’s on display at the Golf Club at Briar’s Creek. The 900-acre property sits in the middle of classic Intracoastal wetlands, 18 miles southwest of downtown Charleston.

Red Ledges
When your golf and ski seasons each run seven months, you can count on some overlap. But this is ridiculous. Or idyllic.

Hole No. 17
The hard part about designing a cliff-top golf course like Royal Isabela is making the inland holes interesting.

It's a bit like playing golf in a fishbowl Or in downtown Hong Kong. But there is something compelling about a round or two at Turnberry Isle Miami. For here amid gleaming steel-and-glass residential high-rises 13 miles north of Miami Beach unfolds a lush, 36-hole layout that feels like a refuge or nest.

Bucolic retreats like this in the middle of a major urban setting are usually reserved for parks or botanical gardens.

The biggest dilemma guests face at the Resort at Pelican Hill is making sure they don't get diverted from golf. With 36 holes designed by Tom Fazio, there's enough there along the Pacific Ocean 45 miles south of downtown Los Angeles to hold the interest of the most discerning golf traveler.

Hole No. 18
IT'S TOO COLD UP HERE to be a hotbed of golf. But Northland Country Club, on the western shore of Lake Superior, 150 miles above Minneapolis-St. Paul, is a gateway to the fabulous recreation area of the state's Boundary Waters region. Outdoor sports abound-not just hunting, fishing and boating, but also golf, at least during the five-month respite from winter.
