    Golf – your personal US tour

    Mon 3 Oct Baltimore – Waverly Woods Golf Club
    Just a stone’s throw away from the legendary Woodstock, the excellent holes of this 18-hole parkland course go through a residential area. In true American style, the fairways stretch out magnificently before players. This course is also ideal for golfers with a higher handicap.

    Wed 5 Oct Charleston – Wild Dunes Golf Club
    This club is home to 36 holes: the Links Course and the Harbor Course. Both courses feature expansive, highly playable fairways. The Links Course runs along the Atlantic coast, yet the fairways are lined with dune sand.

    Fri 7 Oct Miami – Trump National Doral Golf Resort
    The resort, which opened in 1962, has since been taken over by the business tycoon Donald Trump and modernised several times. Today, the Blue Monster Course in particular is one of the most popular courses in the south of Florida. It features a traditional US design with broad fairways and numerous bunkers to protect the greens.

    Mon 10 Oct New Orleans – TPC Louisiana
    Like all TPC courses, it guarantees a high-quality round of golf. Living up to its own claims, the course complements the local atmosphere perfectly. It is also another wonderful example of how American fairways traditionally stretch out before the player.
