As temperatures drop and daylight hours wane across much of the country, golfers sadly put away their clubs or—for the most intrepid among them—bundle up for bracing rounds in less-than-ideal conditions. Fortunately, the sun is always shining and the fairways are always green somewhere in the Inspirato Collection. In fact, you don’t even have to leave the U.S. to find an abundance of warm, sunny, world-class links. Here are four vacation ideas for golf-lovers who aren’t quite ready to let the season end.
In the midst of the stunning desert landscape lies The Rocks Club, a secluded enclave of luxury homes in Scottsdale, Arizona. Here you’ll find not one, but nine championship-caliber golf courses in the immediate area—enough to keep even the most avid golfer busy for weeks. After days on the links, return to a luxury home where you can enjoy a relaxing soak in your private hot tub or have a drink at The Rocks Clubhouse.
Kiawah Golf and the Masters
As part of the recently unveiled collection of Inspirato Only experiences, Inspirato now offers a one-of-a-kind vacation that combines tee times on two picturesque courses with the chance to attend one of golf’s most cherished tournaments. This members-only experience takes place in early April and includes five nights of luxury accommodations at the Forbes Five Star-rated Sanctuary Hotel. You’ll have tee times at the acclaimed Osprey and Ocean Courses, with a day in between to rest up (or play another round!). On the final day, attendees will board a private plane to Augusta, where you’ll attend the Masters Tournament Par-3 Contest with hospitality at Club Magnolia.
The beautiful island of Puerto Rico offers the white-sand beaches and crystalline waters of the Caribbean with the ease and convenience of domestic travel. You can leave your passport at home when visiting either of Inspirato’s two excellent golf destinations along the island’s northern coast. At Dorado Beach, members can explore three golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. while also enjoying resort amenities such as a private beach, spa, and The Watermill, a $12 million aquatic playground with waterslides and pools for kids of all ages. Three more Inspirato homes and another Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed course can be found at the nearby Bahia Beach Resort & Golf Club.
Pebble Beach® Golf Retreat
A truly indulgent retreat, this Inspirato Only experience brings together luxury accommodations, private events, and—most importantly—guaranteed tee times at all three of Pebble Beach’s iconic courses. Inspirato has reserved the entirety of the five-star Casa Palmero hotel, so members have the chance to meet and get to know one another. A private welcome reception, dinner, and cocktail party provide other opportunities to socialize. And non-golfers will receive a $1,500 resort credit good toward yoga classes, horseback rides, spa treatments, and other resort activities. While this retreat doesn’t take place until next fall, just the thought of this experience should be enough to warm golfers’ hearts all winter long.
Whether you’re looking for a scheduled retreat or prefer to play on your own schedule, Inspirato offers a plethora of vacation ideas that can keep golfers warm and happy through the winter and beyond. Each is accompanied by Inspirato’s exclusive luxury accommodations and signature world-class service. Explore the full portfolio here.
