Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Palm Springs, California

300 Days of Sunshine a Year Mean No Bad Time to Play 18

There are more than 100 golf courses in and around Palm Springs, and they're all in great condition thanks to the year-round warm desert weather. You'll have your pick of courses here, including two at Desert Willow Golf Course (voted #1 by Desert Golf Magazine three years in a row), Escena Golf Club for desert views and a championship course or the Petet Dye course at the Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, a sprawling 360-acre property.

Kiawah Island, South Carolina

A Golfer's Paradise One Hour Outside of Charleston

Whether you choose to spend the whole weekend golfing on Kiawah Island or just make a day trip of this golfer's treasure from the Southern Charm city is up to you. But golfer's shouldn't overlook Kiawah for a golf-focused bachelor party. Courses throughout the island have hosted numerous world-class golf events, from the historic 1991 Ryder Cup to the 2021 PGA Tournament. There are a slew of public courses to play here, including "America's Toughest Course", The Ocean Course; Cougar Point built around tidal creeks and marshes; and Turtle Point designed by Jack Nicklaus. And of course, after a day of play there's Charleston nearby for food and drinks. Check out our Charleston bachelor party itinerary here.

Las Vegas, Nevada

Play 18 by Day, Party by Night in the City That Never Sleeps

While other things may come immediately to mind when you think of Vegas, Sin City also has a hot golf scene, and that isn't even counting the epic TopGolf facility found on The Strip. In and around Vegas you will find more than 70 courses within 40 minutes of downtown. Consider, among others, Chimera Golf Course for its desert landscape and views of the iconic Strip while you play 18.

Scottsdale, Arizona

A Southwest Town That's Synonymous With Golf

If you're planning a bachelor party in Scottsdale, you're likely already thinking about golf. This desert hot spot boasts more than 200 golf courses from luxury clubs to public greens and has been dubbed "The World's Finest Golf Destination". Since you get year-round nice weather here, there's no bad time to plan your golf retreat to Scottsdale. Your biggest choice will be where to play. A few good options include the Estancia Club of rock-and-cactus landscapes and wild greens, the six Jack Nicklaus signature courses at the Desert Mountain Club or 36 quality holes at Troon North Golf Club.

San Diego, California

Laidback California Vibes Marry Well With a Plethora of Links to Choose From

With many of its 72 courses boasting Pacific coast views, you will find courses both challenging and picturesque throughout San Diego. Of course, the cream of the crop is Torrey Pines, where you should play if you're with a skilled crew. But there are plenty of other championship-qualitty courses with similarly picturesque views to choose from if you want something more friendly (price and challenge wise) for a group of varied players.

Sea Island, Georgia

A Coastal Getaway Offering a Top-of-the-line Golf Resort

Sea Island, Georgia, is home to one of the highest-ranking golf resorts in the U.S. Rated #4 out of 75, the Sea Island Golf Club has hosted PGA tours and boasts a stunning 18-hole championship course. You can spend your entire weekend at the resort, where you'll find world-class service and plenty of time to play the game, or make it a one-day trip as part of an extended weekend in Savannah, which is just under two hours north of Sea Island. (If Savannah is your base for the weekend, consider also tacking on a round of 18 at nearby Hilton Head Island). Find out more about planning a Savannah bachelor party itinerary here.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

A Tropical Getaway That Offers Beach, Fun and Numerous Ways to Play 18

Though smaller on the golf scene than many other destinations on this list, the 12 championship courses throughout Caboo are worth teeing up for. Not only will you find quality courses, but each offers a view that can't be beat, including the Pacific Ocean and some whale spotting (seasonally dependent).
