Golf isn’t exactly a cold-weather sport, which is why so many golf enthusiasts seek warmer climes when their own homes succumb to winter. If you’re looking to do the same, check out our top 5 winter golf destinations in the continental U.S.

Scottsdale, Arizona

With some of the most highly-rated golf courses in the nation and 300 days of sunshine annually, Scottsdale is an obvious golf vacation spot for enthusiasts. The natural beauty of the deserts offers a scenic backdrop to excellent golf resorts—the western Phoenix suburbs contain about 100 golf courses in the Sonoran Desert. One of the most popular resorts (and the one that was named the best public facility in Scottsdale) is the Troon North Golf Club. Featuring 36 holes expertly designed with lush fairways, large greens, and tees perched high above the fairways, it’s one of the best.

Naples, Florida

Naples, where the average winter temperature is 78 degrees, is home to premier golf clubs like Old Corkscrew, Gold Course, and Naples Grande Golf Club. Some clubs only offer access to those staying at the resort, but there are also plenty of public courses available to the many freezing northerners who flock south for tee time.

Pinehurst, North Carolina

Located in the sandhills region of North Carolina, Pinehurst Resort is the site of nine courses and has hosted many world-renowned golfers, as well as the 2005 U.S. Open. Designed by the famous Scot Donald Ross, course #2 is especially beloved by many who return to it again and again. Pinehurst is timeless and luxurious, offering the highest-quality service alongside its beautiful courses.

Hilton Head, South Carolina

Hilton Head is one of the best golf destinations in the southeastern United States, home to the Heritage Classic on the PGA Tour and some excellent private clubs, as well. There are over 20 courses open for the public. Green fees can be high, as the courses are well-maintained and provide excellent service, so keep your wallet handy. Harbour Town Golf Links at Sea Pines Resort is well-respected among PGA tour golfers for its entertaining holes, small greens, and stunning views of the Calibogue Sound, not to mention world-class service and dining.

Coachella Valley, California

No top 5 winter golf destinations list would be complete without Coachella Valley. This golfing mecca utilizes every bit of its surrounding natural beauty (desert and mountains) to attract golfers to public and private courses. Of the cities in this valley, the Palm Springs area alone has 124 irrigated golf courses; the most famous are Indian Wells, SilverRock Resort, and the TPC Stadium Course at PGA West.
