Wanna get away -- and play some golf?
There are deals to be had over the next several weeks, particularly in places where late summer qualifies as the “low season.” The LaQuinta Golf Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, Calif., has two noteworthy courses designed by Pete Dye, and through Sept. 18, the golf vacation provider Worldwide Golf Vacations is offering an outstanding three-day deal for $489 per person, double-occupancy. The package includes three nights in a resort casita, a $50 dining credit per room per night, three days of unlimited golf on-site, a shared cart and pre-booked tee times, plus a three-day rental of a midsize car with unlimited mileage. The aforementioned courses include the Mountain Course, ranked among Golf Magazine’s “Top 100 You Can Play.” This scenic layout is carved into the Santa Rosa Mountains, and it has hosted the Senior Skins Game and golf’s World Cup competition. The resort’s Dunes Course (above) has a Scottish flair and demands accuracy off the tee. It has hosted the final stage of PGA Tour Qualifying six times, and is on Golf Digest’s “Top 75 Resort Courses” in the US.
Another deal is a bit less expensive and closer to home, but requires you to move a little more quickly. Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach, S.C., is offering a three-day package at $439 per person through Aug. 31, based on quad occupancy. The deal includes three nights in a two-bedroom villa, three rounds of golf, carts and pre-booked tee times, and a three-day minivan rental with unlimited mileage.
