Stephen Szurlej

A buddies destination of the highest order with enough golf to fill a week or more. All five 18s—Bandon Dunes, Pacific Dunes, Bandon Trails, Old Macdonald and the newly opened Sheep Ranch—are ranked among America's 100 Greatest, plus Bandon Preserve, one of the best short courses in the nation. Another 18-hole course by David McLay-Kidd is on the way.

Hard to say which is the greater thrill, the floating-island-green 14th on the resort's immaculate course or the hot tub on the hotel balcony overlooking Lake Coeur d'Alene.

THE INN AT GAMBLE SANDS
Brewster, Wash.

The high, arid desert of Central Washington is the setting for Gamble Sands, a David McLay Kidd-designed course that shows off breathtaking views of the wide Columbia River Valley. The broad, natural holes and tight, bouncy fescue turf give players the opportunity to take high-risk lines with their drives across fearsome hazards to gain significant advantage and roll, but there’s also extreme room for less assertive play. A number of fetching, short par 4s and par 5s beckon players to make birdie, and the rather modestly contoured greens see more than their share of holed putts. The Inn at Gamble Sands offers spacious 500-square-foot rooms and 1,000-square-foot suites that overlook the river valley and the wild, 18-hole Cascades putting course, scene of popular late-night competitions.

Seneca, Ore.

Brian Oar

The luxurious wilderness retreat, sitting on 140,000 acres, is unlike any other golf resort in North America. You might’ve heard about the resort’s goat caddies, equipped with custom leather backpacks to hold enough clubs, balls and tees for a loop around the resort’s seven-hole short course, McVeigh’s Gauntlet. Also innovative are the resort’s reversible 18-hole courses, the Craddock and Hankins, designed by Dan Hixson.
