- Best CA Golf School Vacation: Napa Golf School at Hiddenbrooke
California is one of the most popular golf vacation spots in the world just because of its gorgeous weather. Hiddenbrooke was designed by the late great Arnold Palmer, one of the most iconic golfers to ever tee it up. Mr. Palmer truly had a knack for creating dazzling golf courses.
Hiddenbrooke hosts the LPGA Samsung World Championships, so you know it is kept in tiptop condition year-round. Each tee box spoils you with an unbelievable view that looks like something on a postcard.
Thousands of Bird Golf Academy students come to Hiddenbrooke each year to see why it’s called the “premier golf course north of the Golden Gate Bridge”. All students are treated to private instruction from one of Bird Golf Academy’s PGA teaching professionals before enjoying their exquisite accommodations at Meritage Resort and Spa, one of the most luxurious resorts in California.
- Best FL Golf School Vacation: Palm Coast at Hammock Beach Golf Resort & Spa
Is there anything better than dialing in your golf swing right on the shores of the majestic Atlantic Ocean? Hammock Beach Golf Resort & Spa is right on the sand. This means while you are busy lowering your handicap, your family can enjoy one of the finest beaches in the state of Florida.
One of the best features of the Palm Coast golf school is that golfers get to play on two outstanding courses. The Ocean Course was designed by The Golden Bear himself Jack Nicklaus. Once you step foot on this course you’ll see why Golf Week named it one of the “Best Courses You Can Play” in both 2017 and 2019.
The other course is called The Conservatory and it was designed by one of Nicklaus’s old rivals, Tom Watson. Students will marvel at how beautiful this links-style course is laid out. The Conservatory has made Golf Digest’s “Florida’s Best Golf Resorts” list on three separate occasions.
