  • When most guys think of a guys weekend in Baja they probably think of the glitzy resorts of Cabo but increasingly there are other destinations along the Sea of Cortez that are rising as well. One hidden gem is Loreto, Mexico - located about a third of the way up the eastern side peninsula but less than two hours by plane from San Diego, Los Angeles, and Phoenix.

  • The iconic JW Marriott Marco Island Beach Resort has completed its comprehensive $320 million transformation project, ushering in a new era of luxury in southwest Florida and beyond. Guests who visit this stunning resort situated on three miles of pristine sands and sparkling Gulf waters will enjoy the new Lanai Tower with more than 100,000 square feet of technologically integrated meeting and event space, exciting culinary concepts, 12,000 sq. ft entertainment center, re-imagined historic Lanai Suites and the debut of the “Paradise by Sirene experience, a curated escape exclusively for adults.

  • Sea Pines Resort, opened more than 50 years ago, has been, and continues to be, the ultimate golf destination in Hilton Head, South Carolina.

  • One of our favorite places to visit are the barrier islands found along the South Carolina coast just south of Charleston. This is a magical place of incredible beauty and just the right amount of seclusion where you can feel special... but still easy to get to. While the entire coast here from Myrtle Beach to Hilton Head is dotted with legendary golf courses, Kiawah Island is special for the fact that it isn't an overdeveloped resort area. Here, among the waves, white sand beaches, and sea grass you can relax and enjoy a great golf getaway.

  • The U.S. Open is coming back to Pebble Beach for the sixth time - but this one is special since Pebble Beach Golf Links will be celebrating its 100th year. The 119th U.S. Open Championship will be held from June 10-16, 2019 and this is your opportunity to be part of golf history. This post is a living document that we plan to update with additional information as we get closer to the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. To start with though, we've scoured the internet to help answer all of your questions. Comment below if you have questions about the championship. Let's kick things off with some basic information that you'll need to know if you are thinking about attending the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, including tickets, transportation, and lodging!

  •  Looking for a fun golf getaway in the Caribbean? Ocean Club Resorts might be the place and is located right along the award winning Grace Bay Beach and within a short walking or driving distance from Provo’s 18-hole championship golf course.

  • While Scotland and the British Isles might seem to be the prime destination for a great round of golf in Europe... Spain is a top destination that you won't want to miss. With sun soaked coastlines, fantastic wine and food, and a price that is more affordable than other parts of Europe, Spain might just be perfect for your next lads holiday or guys golf getaway!

  • Casa Velas is a boutique hotel located only a 10 minute ride from the Puerto Vallarta airport that offers nightly activities including cigar rolling, tequila tasting, craft beer tasting, and cocktail making, plus includes unlimited golf at three different Puerto Vallarta golf courses. We stayed here as a guest of the hotel and had a fantastic experience that might make this one of our favorite destinations.

  • Florida is one of my favorite places to visit and it is filled with hundreds of golf resorts, beautiful beaches, incredible food, and in the past few years a beer scene that has gained national recognition. When planning your Florida golf guys weekend though, it's important to pick the right places, so here's a few of our top picks. 

  • Pinehurst is one of the single best destinations in all of North America for a guys-only getaway. Founded in 1895, the course has played host to many historic events in its nearly 120 years of existence.

    Three separate hotels and a bevy of villas and condos await visitors, who have immediate and access to eight top-notch golf courses. The entire area takes up a little over four square miles.

     

  •  Every so often I experience something that was completely unexpected while visiting a destination. A few months ago I got invited to come back up to Idaho and visit the Coeur D'Alene Casino to play a round at the Circling Raven Golf Club. Honestly when I think about "Indian Casinos" - a great golf course isn't typically one of the things I expect to experience. However, as things worked out I realized that I'd be passing through the area on my way home from exploring Montana so we decided to stop... and I'm very glad we did!

  • The essential elements of any great golf mancation fluctuate depending upon the particular trip. Sometimes you’re looking for a little relaxation. Other times it’s heart-pounding excitement.

    If you can find some opportunities to enjoy a little golf, some fine Scotch, and a good cigar, then you've probably got the recipe for a perfect guys’ weekend. That’s probably why the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort is an unqualified hit with guys everywhere.

  • Located directly south of the Canadian border, less than an hour from Vancouver is one of the most beautiful resorts that I've stayed at recently. It has that classic charm and natural beauty that money simply can't replicate and would almost distract from. Sitting at the end of a spit of land overlooking the water on three sides is a 212-room resort with a beautiful stone-lined beach and fantastic restaurants featuring imaginative menus filled with local seafood and northwestern delicacies and just minutes away are two of the top golf courses in Washington State!

  • There is certainly no shortage of options for where to golf in Southern California. We're privileged to have some of the best and most beautiful courses in the world right here at our doorstep. One of these resorts is a relatively hidden gem that is in the process of being brought back to life. The Ranch at Laguna Beach is open right now for golf but the full resort experience will be coming online in early 2016 following an extensive renovation of the resort that traces it's heritage all the way back to the 1940s.

  • You don't always need to travel somewhere far to have the perfect romantic getaway. Sometimes, you will find something great right in your backyard that is an experience you will remember for a lifetime. That's what happened for Heather and I last weekend when I got a last minute invitation to be Kia's guest at the Kia Classic in Carlsbad, California. While this happened to only be 30 minutes from home it was the perfect getaway and since the Park Hyatt Aviara is pet friendly it made things that much better!

  • Scottsdale Arizona is a fantastic destination for a mancation and while we visited here for Cactus League Spring Training - especially since it is right next to Salt River Fields, it is a solid year-round destination.

    There is obviously no shortage of world-class resorts in Scottsdale, Arizona and so it might be tough to decide which one will be the perfect spot for your next mancation.

    Talking stick is a 4 diamond casino resort that has an on-property golf course, walking distance to the latest Top Golf location, an entertainment venue with acts ranging from Rob Thomas and Collective Soul to Dennis Miller and Tim Allen. It is also home to the Arizona State Poker Championship and if that isn't enough - even cool enough that even NFL Players want to take their buddies here for a round of golf as I found out during a twitter conversation with Philadelphia Eagles veteran,Mark McMillian.

  • headerimageIf you live in the United States, it is highly likely that you have seen the commercials for Atlantis - pictured as this gleaming Las Vegas-style resort emerging from powdered sugar Bahamian sands, with a gorgeous couple (or maybe a family) enjoying their stay there.

    What you don't see is that Atlantis is also a great spot for a group of guys to go for a long weekend, or even just for the day, since it is super convenient to the port of Nassau. That is how I got to experience the spectacle that is Atlantis Resort, during our cruise on Carnival Ecstasy, and I had a BLAST!

  • There are hundreds of great places to go for a golf mancation, especially along the South Carolina coast, but not many that offer virtually everything you could possibly want in the ultimate mancation or boys weekend. Luckily I was able to visit one earlier this spring! Wild Dunes Resort is located at the north end of Isle of Palms, South Carolina and the resort is certainly more than just another golf course.

  • Are you looking for a place where guys can go to get away from all the stresses of home life - spouses, children, weekend projects etc? How about visiting a place not to far away, a place where you can sleep in, play a round of golf or two, take a nap, eat wings, drink beer and enjoy a night of poker or billiards, all while enjoying a big game on the TV.

    That's exactly what Carroll Valley Resort offers and it is located in the small Pennsylvania town of Carroll Valley, just outside of Gettysburg.

  • The south east coast is littered with great golf resorts, but last year when I was attending a wedding on Isle of Palms I came across Wild Dunes and it stuck out as something special. It didn't feel like every other golf resort and now that I found out they have some great mancation packages I am even more excited!

    Plus when you combine golf with the historic southern charm and luxury of Charleston itself you simply can't go wrong.

    Elizabeth Kelly, Marketing Communications Manager at Wild Dunes Resort, was nice enough to answer some of our questions and talk about some of the great mancation and guys weekend activities at this great South Carolina golf resort.
