If golf is your passion then your idea of a perfect holiday would undoubtedly include miles and miles of greens with some bunkers, sand traps and water hazards on 18-hole courses spread over acres of wonderful turf.

There are hundreds of golf courses sprinkled all over the world and with golf vacations all the rage, the golf resorts around the world are top-class affairs with nothing but the best on offer.

Each continent has its own line-up of the top-ten golf resorts. And each of these continents has various organizations that conduct these polls and surveys. The top ten US golf resorts for the past year running are the Pinehurst Resort in Northern California, the Boulders Resort and Golden Door Spa in Arizona, Kiawah Island Resorts in South Carolina, the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North in Arizona, Pebble beach resorts in California, Sea Island Resorts in Georgia, Sawgrass Mariott Resort in Florida, the American Club in Wisconsin, Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon, Kapalua Bay Hotel and Ocean Villas in Hawaii.

These ratings depend on certain criteria and there can always be a shake up of status every polling year. As is the case with the latest Golf Digest biennial survey of America?s 100 Greatest Courses. This poll takes into account all the golf courses and not just the resorts. There are more than 800 panelists who decide which is the best golf course, depending on various factors ranging from yards, par, points and even the ambience and overall feel and atmosphere of the course. According to the Golf Digest’s panelists the top ten golf resorts in America for the years 2005 and 2006 are Pine Valley at New Jersey with a par of 70, Augusta National G.C, Shinnecock Hills G.C at New York, the immensely popular Cypress Point Club at Pebble Beach in California, the Oakmont, Pebble Beach Golf Links at number six, Merion at number seven, Winged Foot at number eight with 68.87 points, the National Golf Links of America with a par of 73 and in the tenth spot the Seminole at Juno Beach with 67.97 points.

There are wonderful golf courses the world over and America is home to some of the best ones that offer an unparalleled golfing experience.
