Three or four days suddenly free up on your calendar, and, naturally, you get the itch to take a golf trip. But neither your spouse nor your pals can join you. What do you do?Go solo. Golf's culture and conviviality will roll out the welcome mat wherever a player chooses to wander. As with waltzing, once you know the steps, you're able to join the dance anywhere. And with every first tee presenting new faces and adventures, one never has to be a lonely number on the links.
Still, not every destination is ideal for the single golfer. To meet that standard, a resort or region must offer the opportunity to play thirty-six holes a day (after all, you've gotten away to play and nothing is holding you back); the chance to walk, so you're not forced to share a cart with a stranger; and a choice of bars and restaurants where you'll be comfortable arriving alone and likely to meet a friendly face or two once you get settled. Here are four places where the courses and the amenities can turn a party of one into a golf celebration.
