Golf – in the land of unlimited golfing enjoyment
Fri 28.4 Hilo, Hawaii, USA – Volcano Golf & Country Club (Additional course 1)
Play golf in the shadow of Mauna Loa, one of the most active volcanoes in the world. Here you will be treated to a feast for the eyes between the black lava and the green fairways. Because of the geological conditions, it is advisable to play this course with as straight of shots as possible. Finding a ball in the rough is a game of chance!
Thu 4.5 Los Angeles, California – Pelican Hill Golf Club
Two unique golfing highlights, the Ocean South and the Ocean North courses, await your visit. The fairways laid out on a high plateau provide a wealth of exceptional experiences for playing and watching the game.
Sun 7.5 San Francisco – TPC Harding Park
Eighty years after it was founded, the course was completely modernised in 2005 to fulfil the requirements of the PGA Tour. These days, this parkland course, located on a peninsula in Lake Merced, features undulating bunkers and wide fairways, which are set around ancient cypress trees.
Wed 10.5 Seattle, Washington – The Golf Club at Newcastle
East of the city of Seattle, you can find two 18-hole courses, which predominantly feature wide, straight fairways and some often very tidy bunkers. The location on a plateau is enchanting with its unique views of Seattle’s skyline.
Thu 11.5 Victoria, Canada – Olympic View Golf Club (Additional course 2)
This course with its breathtaking views of the countryside and well-established trees promises a very special day of golf. To end your round, aim the ball straight for a 15 m high waterfall, which roars away just behind the green.
Fri 12.5 Vancouver – Mayfair Lakes Golf & Country Club
Eleven lakes, which come into play on almost every hole, give this course its name. The layout is known for its clear bunkers in front of the greens. This and the water features at the side of the fairways require a great deal of concentration.
