Who’s Ready to Go 54?
Today is the summer solstice – the official first day of summer and the “longest” day of the year when the Earth’s axis is most tilted toward the sun. With more daylight hours occurring today than any other day of the year, conditions couldn’t be more ideal for playing golf. In fact, we see it as a great opportunity to take advantage and play as much golf as we can!
Are you up to the challenge? If so, here are four great resorts you can book on GolfNow.com that offer at least three different 18-hole courses on property, making it easy for you to cram in as much golf as possible.
Paiute Golf Resort (Las Vegas, N.V.) Away from the hustle and bustle that Las Vegas has become known for is the 54-hole Paiute Golf Resort. Designed by Pete Dye, all three courses are situated in wildlife havens in the hot desert. Play the Paiute Wolf (7,604 yards), Paiute Snow Course (7,100) and Sun Mountain Course (7,100) for a full day of golf before hitting the strip.
Sycuan Golf Resort (El Cajon, Calif.) A fun and underrated resort near San Diego, Calif., the Sycuan Resort offers something for everyone. The resort has three courses – two 18-hole championship courses and a fun 18-hole par-3 course – for you to enjoy at your own pace on the Summer Solstice. With meticulous conditions, the resort also features a large practice area including four putting greens and an indoor swing studio to get your game right.
Grand National Golf Course (Opelika, Ala.) According to reports, the Alabama land the 54-hole resort was built on was considered by architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr., to be the greatest site for a golf complex. He used the shores of Lake Saugahatchee to shape the resort’s three courses – The Lakes, The Links and The Short Course. The experience at Grand National provides quality for a range of skill levels and a full-service clubhouse, restaurant and bar for your post-solstice relaxation.
Palm Aire Country Club & Resort (Pompano Beach, Fla.) Set in the heart of South Florida, Palm Aire boasts five separate 18-hole courses making your goal of 54 holes a realistic one. Take your pick of the Palms, Pines, Oaks, Sabals and Cypress Courses and get to work. The courses vary in length and difficulty, making your (long) day on the course an enjoyable one regardless of skill level.
