Golf Escapes

Views From The Tee

The views from some tees are enough to distract even the most focused golfers. Whether in the Tuscan countryside, on a French beach, overlooking the Red Sea or the Indian Ocean, a beautiful setting will inspire a great round-or cushion the blow of an embarrassing shot. After all, it's just a game, right?

Despite the peaceful nature of many a golf course, nothing can compete with beach-time relaxation. Plus, if players are able to flop and drop on a sandy shore after a strenuous round, the next day's game will most likely benefit. Golf-widows or widowers surely won't mind their partners' 6 a.m. tee time as much if they can spend their mornings at these Leading Hotel properties in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Barbados.

Leading Spa Leading Golf Sandy Lane

St. James, Barbados

Barbados was under British rule for more than 300 years, explaining the moniker "Little England." Today the Anglo imprint can still be seen in such popular activities as cricket and polo, but it has blended with Bajan flair—a winning combination. The best of both worlds is showcased at the fashionable Sandy Lane. The resort, which opened in 1961, ushered in a rebirth of Barbados when it emerged from a complete transformation in 2001. Guests feel coddled from the moment they check in; not at a desk but in their spacious rooms with blue-drenched vistas. Everything is over-the-top luxurious: there are three golf courses and the island's largest and most renowned spa, but the warm service and a relaxing beach scene keep that unmistakable Barbados balance of barefoot-chic.
