August, the quintessential vacation month, is both the height of summer and summer’s final declaration. Vail Valley, Colo.In Vail, the gilded enclave and world-renowned ski resort 90 minutes west of Denver, the current line-up of high-altitude resort courses is a match for the legendary slopes. Kelowna, British Columbia, CanadaWell under the radar, British Columbia’s interior Okanagan Valley features nearly 20 scenic, delightful golf courses, many of them ranked among the finest in western Canada. Dominican RepublicCurrently the hottest spot for world-class golf in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic offers discounted golf packages all summer long in a place with the tallest mountains and deepest rivers in the islands, not to mention sugar-sand beaches and abundant sunshine. Ireland Consistently drier than the west coast of Ireland, the counties south of Dublin are home to several lovely parkland courses that offer a pleasant alternative to the wind-whipped seaside links. I agree with your assessments of the Brainerd Lakes area and Vail as top golf destinations. In every corner of the state you’ll find hundreds of courses to choose from at all playing levels. Some of the finest and purest golfing in the state is located along the shore of Lake Erie. World-class signature holes are the signature of this region, with the perfect getaway just a short drive from Pittsburgh. Another world of golf awaits, with carefully designed courses that harmonize with the natural beauty of Central Pennsylvania. With the Pine Creek Gorge just a five-iron or so away, you can expect some pretty spectacular views wherever you go.

In truth, August is every holidaymaker’s last chance to enjoy a relaxing stretch of warm, sunny weather. Tops among them is Pinehills Golf Club, a classic New England facility with a first-class clubhouse, a golf academy and spacious practice facility, and two superb, lay-of-the-land courses built by Rees Jones and Nicklaus Design. Among the highlights are Cordillera (54 holes), Sonnenalp, Beaver Creek, and semi-private Red Sky Ranch, where play is alternated daily between the Tom Fazio- and Greg Norman-designed courses, each a sagebrush-and-aspen trimmed gem ranked among the very best layouts in the Rockies. Sprawled out at the base of the eponymous ski area is Killington Golf Course, a hilly resort spread that’s been foiling experts for 30 years. Tom McBroom and Doug Carrick, two of Canada’s leading golf designers, have individually built several outstanding layouts over the past 20 years in the thickly wooded, lake-dotted region. Created by ancient volcanic eruptions, the eastern flank of the Cascade Range is a high desert plateau where golf (and microbreweries) have flourished beneath snow-capped peaks rising to 10,000 feet. From the most challenging pro-designed links, to the perfect public course for a lazy Sunday afternoon. Pack your bag and plenty of balls – these public courses rival plenty of private clubs out there.
With rolling meadows, sparkling lakes and naturally hilly terrain, it’s a sweeping panorama of amazing countryside that just so happens to have some of the most unique and challenging golfing in America.
And you’ll need every one of your irons for many of these challenging signature holes. Nestled in the splendor of the Poconos and the rest of Upstate PA lies some of the most premier public golfing around.

Before the days shorten, before the shadows lengthen, before the school bell rings, now is the time to time to tee it up by the sea, by a lake, or in the mountains. After the round, tour Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum where costumed actors recreate the lifestyle of the Pilgrims’ original settlement.
Also available is Green Mountain National, a superlative muni that’s hosted the Vermont Open, New England Amateur Championship, and other prestigious competitions. These include Deerhurst Highlands, Rocky Crest, Lake Joseph, Bigwin Island, Muskoka Bay Club, and The Ridge at Manitou, the latter a stellar McBroom design inspired by the work of Alister MacKenzie.
The K Club, site of the 2006 Ryder Cup, offers 36 holes of memorable golf designed by Arnold Palmer. A well-balanced test built around rock outcrops, granite boulders, wetlands, with fairways carved from a thick forest of pine and birch, this well-groomed layout offers fine views of rounded peaks and long ridges in the Green Mountains. Carton House, with courses by Mark O’Meara and Colin Montgomerie, features both rolling, wooded parkland and open, links-style settings.
