Pacific Coast Golf Getaways
Since Sacagawea helped guide Lewis and Clark on the first US expedition to the Pacific Coast in the early 1800s, the American West has been a place of big sky, big open spaces and big dreams. Historically the West has drawn travelers with gold and gambling. These days it’s golf that brings visitors.
Golf now permeates the vastness of the American West, with great courses found among mountains, deserts, high plains and deep woodlands. And nowhere in the West is the game more spectacular than it is along the Pacific Coast. You can play great golf on public courses without ever straying too far from the Pacific Coast Highway that hugs the coast from Canada to Mexico.
Golf courses on the West Coast rival any courses throughout the world. And your travels there will be far more comfortable than those of Lewis and Clark.
