Top 7 Golf Courses for Business

1. Pebble Beach – Pebble Beach, CA

For the Impossible-to-Impress Client

The game of golf is at its best at Pebble Beach! Always the name synonymous with high-end golf, the Northern California course is sure to impress even the pickiest of clients. Each of Pebble Beach’s four courses offer a dizzying array of breathtaking ocean views, brand-new course enhancements to challenge every level of play, and a truly once in a lifetime experience.

2. Augusta National – Augusta, GA

For a Celebration

Seal that big deal? Close on that important account? It’s time to celebrate! Augusta National tops our list as the absolute best golf course to take a business partner or anyone you’re celebrating with! Most people know Augusta as the site of the Masters tournament each spring, but there is an additional something about the course that strikes a deep chord in those who visit. Augusta’s natural beauty and sense of history moves those who visit in a profound way, and the deep-set sense of tradition provides the perfect ambiance for anyone looking to create memories, found a life-long tradition, or commemorate a special occasion.

3. TPC Scottsdale – Scottsdale, AZ

For the “Wild-card”Client

Set like a vibrant jewel deep in the Sonoran Desert and surrounded by the soaring peaks of the Mcdowell Mountains, TPC Scottsdale has much, much more to offer than simple aesthetics. We’ve dubbed Scottsdale’s premier PGA Tour Facility as the perfect place to bring that wild-card client. (You know the one we’re talking about: those “good old boys” who are looking for a rowdy time and a little more entertainment that the average wine-and-dine). But if you’re not a strip-club type of businessperson and wish to retain some semblance of dignity while still letting loose, here is your perfect out! The boisterous fans in the stadium seating surrounding the short par-3 are guaranteed to heckle and yell, creating the party-like atmosphere that sets TPC’s Stadium Course apart from any other golf course in the country.

4. Kapalua Resort – Maui, HI

For Relaxation

As it says on Kapalua’s website, “the sensation of striking a dew-kissed drive into the morning Kapalua Resort sun is, to the avid golfer, discovering golf nirvana.” We couldn’t agree more! Revel in the natural beauty of the course while enjoying Hawaii’s perfect weather and the courses’ panoramic views. The Maui-based course has been recognized as number one in Hawaii for Best Golf by Travel + Leisure Gold Magazine and it perennially hosts the PGA Tour’s Season Opening SBS Championship, guaranteeing a world-class golfing experience in a beautiful, scenic setting. Perfect for relaxation!

5. Torrey Pines – San Diego, CA

For the Historian

Torrey Pines. The name itself inspires thoughts of California’s towering, craggy cliffs and the nearly indescribable views off San Diego’s renowned coastlines, not to mention the wild beauty of the indigenous trees that inspired the famous course’s name. We chose the Southern California course for the historians among us, because Tiger’s last major US Open win before “the incident” occurred here, and the possibility of walking in the famous golfer’s footsteps is nothing if not a conversation piece! Additionally, the La Jolla course is a well-known PGA Tour stop, and hosts the Buick Invitational every Feburary.

6. Wisconsin Kohler – Kohler, WI

For the Old-Schoolers

Wisconsin Kohler made our list for its inherent beauty and natural ability to exude a chic, backwoods class that simply begs to be catered to. Besides the fact that Kohler’s four championship golf courses are all ranked among the leading courses in the country, Kohler, Wisconsin in itself is a destination worth visiting. The resort boasts world-class accommodations with small village charm and old-world elegance; think rich leather and mahogany, port and a classy cigar.

7. TPC Saw Grass – Ponte Vedra Beach, FL

For the Competitors

Created to challenge the best golfers in the world, TPC Saw Grass will inspire the competitor in any player! We chose the Ponte Vedra course specifically for its island green signature 17th hole, a challenging island shot that will spark up friendly competition, whomever you happen to play with. The perfect course on which to let that on-the-fence client beat you, or to impress you friends, TPC Saw Grass made our number seven for the heavy competitors out there – happy playing!
