Father's Day Golf Courses

Is your Dad a golf fanatic? Once he gets his breakfast in bed and new clubs from the family, what about relaxing with a round of golf? From Hawaii to Las Vegas to Costa Rica, plan an Father's Day outing at one of's recommended hotels and resorts with some of the best golf courses.
Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas
Kauai, Hawaii
Golf Digest's No. 1 Hawaii course, Westin Princeville Ocean Resort Villas is the place to stay for golf lovers. Two well-regarded courses are adjacent: the Prince has breathtaking views along Princeville's cliffs, while Makai, a 27-hole monster, was renovated in 2009.
Casa De Campo
La Romana, Dominican Republic
In 2008, Travel & Leisure Golf ranked Casa de Campo the top golf resort in the Caribbean. The resort's signature course, Teeth of the Dog, which was redesigned in 2006, is ranked No. 47 on Golf Magazine's top 100 courses in the world.
Wynn Las Vegas
The Strip, Las Vegas
Designed by Tom Fazio, the Wynn is one of just a few resorts with a golf course on the Strip, making it the perfect fit for a Father's Day round of golf. The 7,042-yard, par-70 course comes with waterfalls, water features and well-maintained greens.
The Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay
Half Moon Bay, California
Both par-72s and both with fabulous views of the ocean along craggy cliffs, the golf courses at Half Moon Bay offer quite the challenge for golfers, with blustery ocean winds and tight fairways.
Marriott Orlando World Center Resort
Lake Buena Vista, Orlando
An 18-hole, par 71, 6,600-yard course named Hawk's Landing surrounds the Marriott Orlando World Center Resort. The Bill Madonna Golf Academy at the Marriott Orlando World Center Resort has covered bays, putting and chipping areas, bunkers, and manicured grass tees.
Omni Orlando Resort at Championsgate
South of Disney, Orlando
The Omni Championsgate has great greens -- just outside the door. Guests can choose from two 18-hole golf courses as well as enjoy the David Leadbetter Golf Academy. The nine-hole par-3 course is illuminated at night, unlike most other courses in Orlando.
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo
Guanacaste, Costa Rica
The Four Seasons' par-72 championship course, designed by pro golfer Arnold Palmer, has panoramic ocean views from several of its holes, and the surrounding forests are rich with wildlife (including both howler and white-faced capuchin monkeys).
Half Moon
Montego Bay, Jamaica
Designed by the legendary Robert Trent Jones, Sr., Hals Moon's course is certainly a terrific Caribbean Golf Course, with 7,141 yards of difficult driving areas, plenty of bunkering and great undulating greens.
The Lodge at Torrey Pines
La Jolla, California
The 2 golf courses at the Lodge at Torrey Pines are stops on the PGA Tour and offer misty, romantic ocean vistas. The South Course -- remodeled about a decade ago by Rees Jones -- boasts particularly breath-taking views of the Pacific, and challenges players with thick patches of trees, bunkers, and sand traps.
Ocean&Only Ocean Club
The Tom Weiskopf-designed Ocean Club Golf Course fills up the eastern chunk of Paradise Island. The course has hosted numerous tournaments in the past, such as the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational, and has one of the most happening club houses we've seen with a nice bar area.
