    Default Top 10: Golf Heavens

    No.10 Canadian Rockies

    Banff Springs Golf Club
    Under the gaze of the grand Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel -- which makes Batman's stately Wayne Manor look like a starter home -- the Banff Springs Golf Course is marvelous. Framed by striking snow-capped peaks, the Stanley Thompson design, which was built for a record sum of $1 million in 1927, is a gem.

    With stalwart courses like Silvertip, Stewart Creek, Kananaskis, Canmore, and Jasper Park in the vicinity, the Canadian Rockies is golf glorious. The Fairmont hotels in Banff and Jasper are worth a visit in and of themselves.

    No.9 Whistling Straits

    Kohler, Wisconsin
    After providing a dramatic PGA Championship, Whistling Straits is a must-play for thrill-seeking golfers, as danger lurks on most every shot. This isn’t golf for the faint of heart. With several holes overlooking Lake Michigan, the scenery is as terrific as the golf is spellbinding.

    With three other courses, including the magical Blackwolf Run, Kohler, Wisconsin, is now one of the world’s premier golf heaven

    No.8 Half Moon Bay Golf Resort

    Half Moon Bay, California
    Set against the dramatic cliffs of the Pacific Ocean and just minutes from San Francisco, Half Moon Bay Golf Links features 36 holes of pure championship golf.

    The Old Course is an American parkland-style layout originally designed by golf legend Arnold Palmer. The Ocean Course is an Arthur Hills linksland design that is nationally renowned for its dramatic closing holes that stand above the Pacific. The course plays delightfully hard and fast, with creative shot-making rewarded in spades.

    If you need a tune-up on your game, the Moon Mullins Golf Academy will get you right. And for the non-golfer in your party, the amenities and accommodations at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay rival the pleasures of the golf itself.

    No.7 Pinehurst Resort


    Pinehurst, North Carolina
    Nestled in the Sandhills of North Carolina, Pinehurst is as charming and grand a golf resort as you’ll find. With eight championship courses, the magnificent Course No. 2 is the masterpiece of genius golf architect Donald Ross.

    The classic mounded greens (which are similar to those of Ross’ boyhood course, the Royal Dornoch in northern Scotland ) are truly a marvel and will have the rare honor of hosting both the 2014 men’s and women’s U.S. Open. Pinehurst is pure, American golf.

    No.6 Pebble Beach Golf Links

    Pebble Beach, California
    Author Robert Louis Stevenson once called California’s Monterey Peninsula the world’s greatest meeting of land and sea. The golf there is just as wondrous as the mesmerizing seascapes, especially at the Pebble Beach Golf Links.

    In addition to holding the pole position on most every traveling golfer’s bucket list, Pebble Beach is a flat-out joyous golf heaven. With other standout courses, like Spyglass, Spanish Bay, Poppy Hills, Bayonet and Black Horse, the Monterey Peninsula is rife with golfing treasures.

    No.5 Bandon Dunes Golf Resort

    Bandon, Oregon
    In the classic baseball movie Field of Dreams, Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) hears a voice whisper: "If you build it, they will come.” Following that advice, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort has built four of the Earth’s finest layouts -- Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails, and Old Macdonald -- in remote southern Oregon. Golfers now flock there to tee up.

    Assume your golf attire, walk the courses, keep the ball low, and play the game as it was intended to be played.

    No.4 St. Andrews

    Scotland
    With enticingly sinister bumps, knobs and hollows, the Old Course at St. Andrews is golfing gold heaven that gives players the thrill of a lifetime. Every great golfer in history has walked those hallowed fairways and, as a public course, you can too. Plus there are six other admirable links-style municipal courses in the Auld Grey Toon.

    With the breeze from the North Sea, the spires of cathedrals serving as aiming points and the footprints of golfing ghosts from centuries past, St. Andrews is the pinnacle of golfing heaven.

    No.3 Celtic Manor Resort

    Newport, Wales
    Set in the verdant countryside of Wales is the majestic Twenty Ten course at Celtic Manor Resort. The host of the upcoming 2010 Ryder Cup features spectacular holes along the floor of picturesque Usk Valley.

    Known as the “Gateway to Wales,” the lovely landscape is dotted with trees that look as if they’ve been rooted through the ages. Peaceful lakes encroach on rippling fairways and dangerously sloped greens. Toss in the cheerful Welsh hospitality, incredible spa and the lavish comfort of the five-star resort, and you may never choose to leave.

    While there, don’t miss having a drink in Merlins bar, just off the resort lobby. It’s one of the world’s best watering holes.

    No.2 PGA National Resort & Spa

    Palm Beach Gardens, Florida
    With its storied golf history, which includes hosting the 1983 Ryder Cup, the 1987 PGA Championship, nearly two decades of the Senior PGA Championship, and now hosting the PGA Tour Honda Classic, PGA National’s Champion course is a jewel. The splendid Jack Nicklaus design boasts the infamous “Bear Trap,” one of the most difficult three-hole stretches in golf.

    In addition to the famed Champion course, The Palmer, Haig, Squire, and Estates courses are all high-caliber and well worth a play. PGA National has the unique distinction of being the world’s only golf resort to feature both the David Leadbetter Golf Academy and Dave Pelz Scoring Game School.

    And if all that wasn’t enough, the spa is home to Waters of the World, a collection of pools featuring the world’s rarest healing minerals.

    No.1 Mission Hills Resort Shenzhen

    Shenzhen, China
    Is bigger better? With Mission Hills Resort Shenzhen, the answer is “definitely.” Stretching across the lush, rolling hills of Shenzhen and Dongguan in southern China, Mission Hills is China’s highest-rated golf club, and the largest golf club in the world, according to Guinness World Records.

    With 12 exceptional courses designed by giants of the genre, like Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman and Schmidt-Curley (probably the hottest international design company), it’s time to tee it up on any layout at Mission Hills for an experience of Chinese golf heaven.

    As an extra enticement, their spas are some of the best in the world.
