Pinehurst's Carolina Hotel

Certainly, there's great golf to be played in Pinehurst, North Carolina. The Pinehurst Resort is just as fabulous. But a golf trip to one of the top places to play in the USA can, and possibly should, include The Carolina Hotel.

As this article by writer Stuart Hall proves, The Carolina Hotel is A Modern Step Back in Time. In a good way, of course.

Following the Tour: Kapalua for the Mercedes-Benz Championship

As I write this blog entry, I look in the upper left corner of the Kapalua Resort website and find that it's 81-degrees (F)today, January 6th. Not much else needs to be said to convince people that Maui is a heavenly place for a golf vacation. But, there's so much more to Maui and the Kapalua Resort.

The PGA Tour's Mercedes-Benz Championship has just been completed at the Plantation Course at Kapalua. Fortunately for golfers everywhere, this is a place everyone can play. The par-73, 7,400 plus-yard course is one of the places everyone needs to play before before they die.

Another great aspect to the Kapalua Resort is that you can bring the family and find something memorable for everyone to do, at the resort or on Maui. From breathtakingly spectacular beaches (one of which has been rated as "America's Best Beach), to kids snorkeling and Hawaiian culture crafts, to whale watching with Whale Quest Kapalua, to Kapalua Adventures.

Give their website a look, if you dare. Because you'll fall in love with the place.
