Summer by the Sea | T+L Golf

Maine

Place

Samoset Resort, Rockport

The Deal

Tee by the Sea: one night in a room with a balcony or terrace overlooking the Atlantic or the golf course; unlimited golf for two, with cart, on the resort’s recently reconditioned course; one lunch per person in the clubhouse grill

The Golf

The course, set on rocky coastline that includes the requisite lighthouse, typifies seaside New England golf. At the 227-yard par-three third, you must launch your tee shot over waves to a double green, and the beautiful 503-yard par-five fourth clings to the shore.

Price*

From $378 per night, available through October 31

South Carolina

Place

Palmetto Dunes Resort, Hilton Head Island

The Deal

Summer Golf & Spa: four nights in a two-bedroom resort villa; two rounds per person on the Robert Trent Jones Oceanfront Course, George Fazio Course or Arthur Hills Course; one-hour private lesson and one massage per person

The Golf

The Hills course sits on steadily surging dunes and finishes superbly; the Fazio has long par fours and is perhaps the truest test here; and the Jones plays right to the Atlantic at the par-five tenth, one of only two oceanfront holes on Hilton Head Island.

Price*

From $169 per person per night for four people, through September 30

Place

Wild Dunes Resort, Charleston

The Deal

Fazio Sampler: two nights in the inn, the hotel, or a villa or home, all on the Isle of Palms; one round per person on either of two early-career Tom Fazio courses, the Links (his first solo design) or the Harbor; daily breakfast

The Golf

Due to coastal erosion, the Links’ eighteenth has been temporarily shortened from a par five to a par three, but it’s still a challenging oceanfront closer. The Harbor has water or marsh on most holes, many of which hop from landform to landform.

Price*

From $450 per night, two-night minimum, available through August 31
