Carolinas golf resorts: Style, grace, luxury

Carolinas golf resorts

The names resonate with style and grace and conjure images of golf destinations at their finest. Pinehurst Resort. Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Sea Pines Resort.

Simply put, the Carolinas offer access to some of the world's best-known golf resort and spa addresses, carving a luxurious path through their trademark pine forests to the Atlantic Oceans frothy surf.

From the course-rich vicinities of Hilton Head, Myrtle Beach and Charleston in South Carolina to the scenic Sandhills and Village of Pinehurst in North Carolina, these destinations are as unique as the states themselves.

It's quite a collection of properties, one that allows you to create any conceivable menu of stay and play packages.

Pinehurst's storied No. 2 course might be Donald Ross's most well-known design, but the resort has seven other layouts to mix and match with your game. Ditto for the numerous combinations at Kiawah Island's five courses, which include its famed Ocean Course, and Sea Pines' three courses, featuring Harbor Towne Golf Links.

Or how about taking on the foursome of Greg Norman, Davis Love III, Pete Dye and Tom Fazio at Barefoot Resort in Myrtle Beach, situated on the water with its own marina? They each were brought in to offer a variety of challenges to Barefoot's four golf courses.

On the Isle of Palms near Charleston, the Wild Dunes Resort gives us a glimpse into Fazio's early work, the Harbor and Links courses, both of which take golfers on significant walks along the Atlantic Ocean.

Indeed, the names will resonate and imagines will remain long after you've left these parts of the Carolinas.
