Golf may be a difficult sport to master, but it provides an excellent opportunity to take a good walk with friends around a beautifully manicured course. Listed below are a few picturesque spots to go enjoy a round of golf.
Pebble Beach, Calif. -- Nestled within a resort, the Pebble Beach Golf Links course provides a front-row seat to the Pacific Ocean. Cypress Point Course offers another challenging round of 18.
Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. -- TPC Sawgrass is a well-known golf course mainly because of the famous (or infamous) 17th hole which invites the golfers to hit their tee shot onto a small island green.
Admiral Baker Golf Course in San Diego -- This Navy-affiliated golf complex is situated in a great city to visit where you can enjoy lots of sun.
Bethpage State Park in Farmingdale, N.Y. -- This state park on Long Island features 5 courses known by color, with the most widely known course being the "Black" Course. The "Black" Course is used by the PGA Tour.
Wynn Golf Course in Las Vegas -- For those looking for a desert getaway, the Wynn Resort and Casino offers an excellent golf course.
Gatlinburg, Tenn. -- Next time you find yourself vacationing in the Smoky Mountains, check out this beautiful course. It was rated as Tennessee`s top municipal course by Golf Digest in 2009.
Princeville, Hawaii -- The Prince Course on the island of Kauai is rated by Golf Digest as a Top 20 public course.
Tempe, Ariz. -- Step into the shoes of a college golfer and play the Karsten Golf Course at Arizona State University in Tempe.
Cobbs Creek in Philadelphia -- Next time you go visit Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell, add a trip to The Olde Course at Cobbs Creek Golf Club.
Augusta National in Augusta, Ga. -- This course gets plenty of publicity with its yearly hosting of the Masters Tournament. However, it is a private golf course so the only realistic chance to see the beauty of the course in person is to buy tickets and watch the professionals play.
