Mandarin Oriental – Canouan

Canouan Island is a remote haven in the Caribbean’s St Vincent and the Grenadines. This captivating resort is located on the powdery sands and glittering waters of Godahl Beach.

Each of the colonial-style suites and Italian-design patio villas overlook the ocean, and there’s a selection of restaurants here serving up culinary treats. There’s also the wellness spa and plenty of sporting activities including hiking, biking, water sports, and tennis.

But you’ll be here for the golf. And what a way to play. Golf in the Caribbean means an audience of tortoises and a vibrant sunset for a backdrop. At Canouan, you’ll be playing on the only championship 18-hole golf course in the Grenadines.

This is a par-72 course created by Jim Fazio. It’s played over two nine-hole loops. The first of the nine takes in the bay, so you can indulge in views of the beaches and reef as you make your way around. The second nine involves a climb up the hillside, where you’re rewarded with views of Canouan and the surrounding islands.

The Eden Club – Scotland

Since 1997, Scotland’s The Eden Club has provided a unique experience for those seeking the best golf vacations in the world. Located in St Andrews – ‘The Home of Golf’ – this is an international private members golf club that covers a selection of courses, making it the ultimate in luxury golfing.

The Pittormie estate, formerly owned by Drambuie whisky, features eight suites inside the castle, plus a range of bars, restaurants, and lounges. There’s also a pool, gym, and spa among other features.

Golfers who play here are highly skilled and well-versed in the upper levels of the game. There are over 30 courses in the area, including the Old Course and Kingsbarns. However, it’s the events on offer at The Eden Club that make it world-famous. Golfers can access over 30 events annually on some of the finest courses in Scotland – and, indeed, the world.

Laucala Private Island – Fiji

A trip to Laucala Private Island in the South Pacific is an unforgettable experience. Among the dramatic rainforests, white sands, and coconut plantations, there are 25 Fijian-style villas set above coral reefs and overlooked by impressive volcanic mountains.

This setting is perfect for golf lovers who long to try their hand at Scotsman David McLay Kidd’s championship golf course. This stunning 18-hole course is set on a sheer cliff that looms over the Pacific Ocean.

This par-72 layout takes in fairways, challenging greens, and meticulously positioned bunkers that are designed to suit both experienced golfers and those who are new to the game. A golfing professional is available for tuition and tips on how to improve your swing, while caddies, clubs, and buggies are available in the Club House.

As well as golf, there are plenty of other activities to try here, from water sports to horse riding. For something more sedate, the spa uses traditional Fijian therapies to provide a relaxing end to a day on the course.
