Fall golf spots

Golf is a four-season sport. It’s 5:00 somewhere. It’s also golf weather somewhere! We thought we’d share 7 of the best and most affordable golf destinations for the fall months.

1. World Golf Village, Ponte Vedra, Florida

These two courses were designed in a collaboration between Palmer, Nicklaus, Snead, and Sarazan. Not too shabby. The King & Bear and Slammer & Squire courses have solidified World Golf Village as two of the top courses in the state and an overall top golf destination. You can also visit the World Golf Hall of Fame, which is right there, and there are a bunch of golf packages available.

Start out in Muscle Shoals up north and play your way down to Point Clear on Mobile Bay. You’ll find dramatic elevation changes, breathtaking water views, tree lined launch lanes, and large greens. These are beautiful courses with five fall specials.

3. Apostle Highlands, Bayfield, WI

We had to include this PGA Family course for a bunch of reasons. It’s a public course with views of Lake Superior on 13 of their 18 holes. You’ll want to just stand and stare as much as play golf! Especially if you hit it when the leaves are changing. Another reason are the crazy low greens fees.

4. Grayhawk, Scottsdale, Arizona

For those of you further out west, here’s a gem offering 36 holes! There are two memorable courses in the Sonoran Desert to enjoy. (Note: the Fairway Monkey doesn’t like cactuses… cacti. You won’t get his help out there!) But there’s a reason they host NCAA championships!

5. Legends Golf Resort, Myrtle Beach, SC

Myrtle Beach is a hotbed for quality golf. It’s just a little cooler in the fall! And the Legends Resort is hard to beat. For starters, you can stay right there on site, and the resort offers free breakfast and lunch. You’ll even get two free beverages for every round. We like free.

Is it the monkey singing? We may never know. But we do know you’ll have a ball here with some of the best weather in the world. And it’s another resort, so you can stay where you play. There are amazing courses all over town. We’d just start here.

7. Waubeeka Golf Links, Williamtown, MA

Can’t get enough of the Autumn foliage? Head up where Massachusetts gets close to the corners of New York and Vermont. This course was built on rolling farmland in 1966 in the beautiful Berkshires. The back nine offers striking elevation changes and views of the Purple Valley, where the leaves practically explode in the fall. And it just might be the most affordable on our list!

Alright, pack your bag (remember your Fairway Monkey gear), call your buddies, and hit the road!
