Top 10 Golf Destinations for Dad this Father’s Day

- Melissa Mewdell,

What better way is there to make your dad feel special on father’s day than to take him on out for a dad appreciation weekend? We’ve teamed up with Forbes Traveler to put together a list of the 10 best places to take dad for a father’s day golf getaway!

Wynn Las Vegas:

The Golf Course at Wynn Las Vegas hosted 50 years of PGA and LGPA Tour events!

That should be reason enough for you to want to host your Father’s Day vacation here.

This 18-hole, 7,042-yard golf course features dramatic elevations that were once considered impossible to create on the Las Vegas strip.

We’ve featured this gorgeous hotel in Las Vegas before on the blog. Read our review of the Wynn Las Vegas on the Jetsetter!

The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club:

Why settle for one golf course when you and your dad can play on two – for free!

The Fairmont Turnberry Isle Resort & Club in Miami, Florida, is offering free golf to all guests staying there.

The promotion runs until September 30, 2009.

All you’d need to pay is the $40 cart fee per person for either of the spectacular golf courses.

Capella Telluride:

Enjoy the best scenery in Colorado by playing a few rounds of golf at Telluride Golf Club.

This Colorado hotel is located just minutes from Capella Telluride (known for its “alpine” allure).

This 18-hole golf course actually winds through the mountains, offering some of the best scenery in the state.

The biggest challenge of golfing here is not getting distracted by the scenery – seriously!

The Resort at Pelican Hill:

At The Resort at Pelican Hill in Newport Beach, California, you and your dad will have both the Ocean North and Ocean South courses to choose from.

Both of these 18-hole golf courses offer different playing experiences, but share one common feature: a dramatic view of the Pacific Ocean.

We’ve featured this California hotel before on the blog. Read our review of The Resort at Pelican Hill on the Jetsetter!

The Cloister at Sea Island:

The two 18-hole championship courses at Sea Island are rated number 1 in the U.S. among the “World’s 50 Best Golf Hotels” by Golf Digest Index.

You and your dad can play in an unparalleled setting, or take advantage of the Golf Learning Center’s clinics at The
Cloister found on Sea Island, Georgia.

Hotel Quintessence:

There are eight world-class golf courses close to Hotel Quintessence.

You are sure to find a course that will be challenging for both you and your dad at this resort.

This hotel is found in scenic Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, and is great for a wide array of summer and winter sports.

In fact, this hotel is perfect for people who really enjoy the outdoors – so if your dad is that kind of guy, bring him here!

Estancia Villa Maria:

For a more exotic father’s day golf getaway, consider taking dad to Estancia Villa Maria.

This hotel is a manor house located just outside Buenos Aires.

You’ll love the gorgeous PGA compliant 18-hole golf course, boasting some of Argentina’s best scenery as well as the hotel’s intimate environment.

Your dad will really love this tiny, boutique hotel in such an exotic locale.

Casa del Mar Suites, Golf & Spa Resort:

Guests at Casa del Mar get between 10 and 25% off their fees to play at the famous 18-hole Cabo Real Golf Course in Los Cabos, Mexico (depending on the time of day you play).

Take your dad here to play on the course where the Senior Slam and Celebrity Challenge of Los Cabos is held.

You won’t be disappointed!

(There’s a reason the pros play here, after all).

One&Only Ocean Club:

For a real experience, take your dad to One&Only Ocean Club’s Golf Course on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.

This 18-hole, par-72 course stretches over 7,100 yards on the island’s peninsula where tropical crosswinds challenge even the most experienced players.

If your dad loves the Caribbean, great scenery and the Ocean, he will have a great time at this hotel.

Casa Colonial Beach & Spa:

The Playa Dorada golf course is adjacent to Casa Colonial Beach & Spa in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic.

What a great, exotic location to take your dad to for a great father’s day getaway!

Perfect for all levels of golfers, a trip here is the ideal father’s day gift if your dad is a big fan of the Caribbean.

    Hi there!
    Estancia Villa Maria sounds a great place to play golf!
    In fact, last year I played golf in Argentina and I’d really enjoyed my stay there.
    I suggest the service called: Let’s golf in Argentina.
    Bye,
