Hampton Hills Golf & Country Club is one of New York’s best kept secrets–and members like it that way. Hampton Hills is located in the middle of a 2,000-acre pine and oak tree preserve in Westhampton Beach.

While Southern Nevada is not a traditional golf destination, golfers have the opportunity to build a trip around their golf game as well as the shows, gaming and nightlife that Las Vegas offers. Golf has played a major role in the revitalization of Henderson, as luxury courses began to reopen after the housing market crash in the 2000s. Reflection Bay Golf Club was the first course to reopen in 2014, and has become a cornerstone of Lake Las Vegas, attracting new and expanding business owners who are eager to capitalize on tax incentives and establish their businesses in a booming area.

Charleston, South Carolina

The annual climate along the coast is almost always ideal for playing golf, with the exception of: August when it’s very hot, January when it may be very cold, and during any seasonal hurricane or severe rainstorm warnings. Even during some summer heat and winter cold, the golf along the Charleston, South Carolina coast is almost always playable. Perhaps the most compelling reason to plan a vacation in the Charleston area is golfer access to marquee courses –– public and private –– and usually at exceptional seasonal and off-season rates. From Myrtle Beach to Charleston (especially Kiawah Island) to Hilton Head and all courses in between.
