Just as the standards of luxury continue to be raised to satisfy ever more discerning tastes, exotic travel these days is something entirely different from what it was even a decade ago. To globe-trotting American golfers, the singular pleasures of strolling the fairways of Hawaii, the Caribbean and the British Isles are by now well known.
