Place

St. Simons Island, Georgia

Sea Island Resorts

The Deal

Ultimate Golf Experience: at least two nights, with butler service, in the Lodge at Sea Island; eighteen holes each (with cart and forecaddie) per night’s stay, including a round with a club pro; four hours of instruction; daily breakfast

The Golf

The Plantation calls for accuracy, the Retreat is forgiving, and it’s worth the extra $75 to play the Seaside. That layout—Tom Fazio’s overhaul of an H. S. Colt design—is marked by grassy dunes, ocean breezes and wicker baskets in place of flags.

Price

From $1,690 per night at peak times and from $1,400 per night off-peak

Place

Hawaii

Four Seasons Resort Lana‘i, Lodge at Koele

The Deal

Golf and Spa: one night in the manorlike Lodge at Koele; unlimited golf at Jack Nicklaus’s recently renovated Challenge at Manele Bay or Greg Norman’s Experience at Koele, or an eighty-minute spa treatment; breakfast

The Golf

The Challenge’s setting, on lava outcroppings, creates a few ocean carries off the tee, including at the par-three twelfth, which jumps from one clifftop to another 150 feet below. The inland Experience wends along ravines and through lush mountainside foliage.

Price

From $725 per room until December 18

Place

Southern Pines, North Carolina

Pine Needles

The Deal

Donald Ross Golf: two nights in the Pine Needles Lodge or the Georgian-style Mid Pines Inn; up to thirty-six holes a day per person (with carts) on Ross’s designs at Pine Needles or Mid Pines; daily breakfast and dinner

The Golf

With their intimacy and lack of pretension, these two classic courses will transport you to an earlier era—for the most part, what you see is what Ross built. Both bear the designer’s trademark features, though Pine Needles has more brawn.

Price

From $340 per person per night until December 3; from $250 until February 11
