Destination Golf – Winter 2023




I recently visited the North Coast of Florida, home of golf’s unofficial “fifth major” – the Players Championship, which is played out each March on the Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra. Although TPC Sawgrass may well be the jewel in the golfing crown of the Sunshine State’s northeast, I soon found that golfers have plenty of other options as featured in my travel article.

Sarah Forrest also spent numerous weeks exploring the golf options of Mauritius. Tucked below the equator in the azure Indian Ocean lies this tropical island which has ten golf courses, so Sarah features all of the golf options along with the five-star Heritage Resort in Bel Ombre on the South side of the island.

And while myself and Sarah were on trips in different continents, our CEO Dermot Synnott was flying the flag in others, attending the International Golf Travel Market in Lisbon and World Golf Awards in Abu Dhabi. In this Guide we feature our venue partner in Lisbon, which is the luxurious residential complex called Martinhal Residences Lisbon, located in the heart of the vibrant Park of Nations.

And while all of this was going on, the World Luxury Awards toasted to their annual winners in Greece.
