Golf globally

From the tradition of St. Andrews and Pebble Beach, to the 21st century courses popping up in Dubai and beyond, there's never been more choice for the discerning golfer looking to take a golfing trip. Kiwi Collection has partnered with some of the world's most outstanding golf resorts to ensure you'll enjoy VIP perks, complimentary upgrades and low rates during your stay. All that's left for you is to select your clubs and hit the tee box…

When scrutinizing possible destinations for a golfing trip, one is inevitably drawn towards the game's origins in Scotland. Perhaps the most storied golfing destination on Earth, the Old Course at St. Andrews, is a venue every golfer needs to experience at least once. Don't worry about the sometimes blustery conditions, though. All that will serve to do is make the post-round drinks all the more enjoyable at one of the charming local pubs.

Whether you choose California, Arizona or Florida, the United States is a treasure trove of memorable golfing options just waiting to be explored. Palm Springs is a good bet for year-round action and Bob Hope's wise-cracks still echo across hundreds of emerald green courses across California.

South America shouldn't be ignored, either. Those seeking something a little different for their luxury golf break should seek out some of Patagonia's rugged delights. Even if you're the proud owner of a green blazer or two these courses will likely push your skills to the limit.

While England and Ireland also offer some pulsating links action, don't forget about Asia. Course designers in Thailand, Indonesia and China have been busy of late, and some of the innovation coming out of the Middle East has to be seen to be believed.
