Today it seems like we all have less free time than ever before. As a result, people are getting away for only a few days, doing it more often, and looking for escapes that are unique and off the beaten path. In keeping with that trend, Golf Hideaways is an invaluable resource for all kinds of golf travel. The book's thirty-five hideaways-twenty-five top picks plus ten honorable mentions-showcase the most beautiful lodgings at top-rated golf courses of the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.In order to reflect the many different types of vacationing golfers--from the hardcore golfer who will spend an entire day on the links to the more casual player whose day will include other activities-a variety of resort styles are represented, from old school to new and trendy, and from those with great courses and an ordinary spa to those with ordinary courses and a spectacular spa. With its inclusion of course ratings, photographs, diagrams, and detailed hole-by-hole accounts, the book is primarily for the golfing enthusiast, yet the wide scope of information about the spas, rooms, lodging experience, and surrounding environs will appeal to the non-golfer as well, assuring the traveler of an ideal trip. With its useful contents and attractive packaging, Golf Hideaways is sure to be the definitive guidebook on its subject.
