Ready to test your swing at the most exclusive golf clubs around the world?
The following golf courses offer first-class challenges, luxury and, for a few, a downright historical experience. Charter a private jet and set off to visit these amazing courses!
Shadow Creek, Las Vegas
Forbes.com touts this as the most luxurious golf course “in the entire country.” Designed by Tom Fazio, one of the greatest living architects in the sport, Golf Digest calls it, “one of a kind, and maybe Tom Fazio’s finest work ever.” What makes a place like this gain mythical status (in Vegas, of all places)? Known to be very lightly played, Shadow Creek offers the take-your-time padding of half-hour distanced tee times. Thoughtful details like these give players the feeling of owning the place, regardless of your handicap.
Lahinch Golf Club, Limerick, Ireland
The sport of golf on the Emerald Isle dates back to 1892 when it was played by Scottish officers stationed in Limerick. The course at Lahinch Golf Club is often referred to as enchanting, both historically and in modern day online reviews. If you’re a superstitious lad, it’s worth flying to this Irish gem to experience its widely recognized idiosyncrasies such as the rain forecasting goats who graze on the dunes in good weather but trot for cover of the clubhouse when they sense it’s about to rain. With its rugged, distinctive landscape and traditional out-and-back course, it’s a unique golf experience just across the pond.
New South Wales Golf Club, Sydney Australia
Legendary designer Dr. Alister MacKenzie left his signature on the coastal course of South Wales. After visiting in 1926 during the Australian tour, he aspired to build a great golf course framed by the Pacific Ocean and proclaimed the it would “present more spectacular views than any other golf course in the world.” Today, golfers continue to make the pilgrimage to the New South Wales Golf Club to experience one of the greatest rounds of all time.
Let’s be honest, sometimes it’s more about the paradise than it is about the par. The JW Marriott Ihilani Ko Olina Resort & Spa offers 18 holes of world-class, resort-infused golf, complete with cascading waterfalls and shimmering pools to relax the senses. In all its Ted Robinson-designed glory, it has been listed in Golf Digest’s Top Resort Courses in America.
Amanjena, Marrakech, Morocco
Luxury Travel Magazine online chose this luxury resort residing on the outskirts of Marrakech as the place to be, with proximity to some of the most picturesque courses the country has to offer. During your stay at the five-star resort, choose from the Amaelkis Golf Club which offers water features and Moroccan architecture galore as well as an iconic view of the Atlas mountains or the Al Maaden Golf Course, situated in the cultural center of Marrakech, giving golfers of all abilities a chance to enjoy themselves over 18 holes of varied terrain. Kind of sounds like a golfer’s paradise, right? You can check out the all-inclusive resort at Amenjena here.
