Summer by the Sea | T+L Golf

California

Place

Island Hotel Newport Beach, Newport Beach

The Deal

Stay and Play: one night in a room with a private balcony; two rounds on the Ocean North or the Ocean South at Pelican Hill, both of which reopened late last year after upgrades by Tom Fazio (Pelican Hill’s resort opens in the fall)

The Golf

Draped over four hundred acres of wavy coastline, these courses feature wide fairways and big greens. A new clubhouse opened last fall, new turf was planted on every hole, and thousands of shrubs were relocated to open up views of the Pacific.

Price*

From $735 per night, available through December 21

Place

San Ysidro Ranch, Santa Barbara

The Deal

Coastal Golf: two nights in a restored cottage or junior suite with a private deck and hot tub; one round per person at Sandpiper Golf Club, Rancho San Marcos or the private Montecito Country Club; daily in-room breakfast

The Golf

Sandpiper is at its best along the Pacific, notably at the par-three eleventh, which drops to the beach. The sea and mountains set the scene at Montecito, and Rancho San Marcos, a Robert Trent Jones Jr. course renovated last year, peers over the valley.

Price*

From $1,650 per room, available through December 18

Hawaii

Place

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa, Koloa

The Deal

Explore: one night in a room with a private lanai and views of the ocean, garden or mountains; one round per person at Poipu Bay Golf Course, former home of the PGA Grand Slam of Golf; breakfast buffet for two

The Golf

The trade winds on Robert Trent Jones Jr.’s Poipu Bay, on cliffs eighty feet above the ocean, can make ball control a challenge. The setting—with humpback whales, monk seals, sea turtles and centuries-old places of worship—adds welcome distraction.

Price*

$680–$1,060 per night, available through December 30
