Hi Jen,

If you are willing to venture a bit further, I'd highly recommend Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic. We've been there twice for one-week golf vacations. The courses are beautiful, the resort is magnificent with pools, beaches, tennis courts and polo fields all on 7000 acres of prime land. It has a number of restaurants (you can buy meal packages), there are casitas (full suites) and one or two bedroom villas. The property is so large that rental golf carts are provided to get around or you can use the internal van/bus service. The developers have recreated a 17th century village on the premises, where many of the restaurants are located. It is all gorgeous. There is an airstrip on the resort property and flights arrive daily - from Miami or Puerto Rico I think. The resort is near the town of La Romana if you want to experience more of the island.

Alternatively, with the U.S. dollar strong against our currency, you might consider Banff, Alberta. The Banff Springs Golf Course is situated on the Bow River. The only drawback to its location is that your round may take a bit longer than usual as you stop to admire the scenery or make way for the caribou that live on the course!
