“I have found the game to be, in all factualness, a universal language wherever I traveled at home or abroad.” — Ben Hogan, Golf Legend
The world’s greatest tropical destinations offer myriad spectacular vacation elements, from stunning beaches and lush forests to incredible cuisine and luxurious resorts. And while golf is not for every traveler, the Caribbean, Mexico, Hawaii, and so many more countries boast courses so beautiful and creative in design that it would be a shame to not at least try playing them.
All it takes sometimes is a little nudge and some inspiration, which is why we try to play as many courses as we can and share the aspects that make them so fun, challenging, and memorable. You’ll never catch our writers on the PGA Tour, so we present the average golfer’s perspective of these incredible courses so that it might convince a beginner to pick up a club and enjoy amazing views for 18 holes at a time.
