Visit popular golf course destinations in the United States

For hardcore golfers who want to indulge with like-minded buddies, we’ve compiled a short and non-exhaustive list of some of the best golf resort destinations in the US. Without further ado, here are our top inspirations for best buddies golf trips in the US. 

Pinehurst Resort, Pinehurst, N.C., combines no less than nine 18-hole golf courses and one shorty 9-hole course, eight restaurants, and a spa. This 350-plus rooms and condos golf resort has hosted many golf tournaments, including the PGA championship. Pinehurst No. 2, the golf course designed by Donald Ross, has ranked consistently among the best golf courses in the United States. 

Sand Valley golf resort in Nekoosa, Wisconsin, offers superb twilight play in the 6-hole loop and the short Sandbox golf course. You can also head to the Mammoth Dunes if you are up to the challenge. The resort counts three golf courses. The designer behind Sand Valley has also designed the unique Cabot Links experience in Nova Scotia, Canada. 

North Myrtle Beach, S.C., has a family-friendly resort that combines activities for golfers and non-golfers. Hardcore enthusiasts will recognize the gold course played by Pete Dye, David Love III, Greg Norman, and Tom Fazio.

For breathtaking scenery, Pine Valley golf club, in N.J. is one of the most difficult golf courses in the world. We would recommend this 18-hole valley course for experienced golf buddies only. 

Sea Island golf resort, GA, offers the best combination for players of all levels. The seaside resort is where David Love III learned to play, and you can still find a variety of players, from juniors to major championship golfers learning and growing together. 

Go on a famous international golf tour

Do you prefer unique golf trip destinations that take you out of your comfort zone? We’ve compiled a few golf travel ideas to experience some of the overseas courses. 

St. Andrews, Scotland, the home of golf, is home to seven unique golf courses, including the Old Course which is the oldest golf course in the world. In the words of Jack Nicklaus, there’s no other golf course that compares to it. It’s worth noting that Donald Ross served an apprenticeship in the region, and Pete Dye studied St. Andrews golf courses closely too. 

Cabot Links, Nova Scotia, Canada, offers two golf courses and a short course. The golf resort hosts over 70 rooms, including golf villas that make an ideal backdrop for golf buddies trips. The journey is often described as magical, and it’s easy to understand why: Golfers will share unique golfing experiences through a valley course, Scottish-inspired dunes, and the pined highlands. 

Italy may not be famous for golf travel, but you want to put Franciacorta Golf Club on top of your golf trip destinations. The golf course designed by Pete Dye is home to a wine and golf resort

The list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the gold resort at Diamante Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The resort layout has been designed by Tiger Wood and the Dunes golf course designed by Davis Love III. It’s a luxury golf resort that is also ideal for families and non-golfers.
