Think "Castle Hotel"

Adare Manor delivers quintessential Irish charm on a colossal scale: while its setting is twee - in the pretty village of Adare - the property itself is a storybook castle set on 840 acres of grandiose land: land that's not only ripe for golf but fishing, horse riding and brisk country walks.

Think "Glitziest Country Club on the planet".

Royalties, bright gold pillar and soaring ceilings, the kingdom of Brunei's signature look is imminent in this world class golf resort .

A Jack Nicklaus designed championship course, the signature 549-yard par five 15th, stretches along the beach dotted with sprawling bunkers. The 18th green is tucked right up to the cliffs presenting a winning view of the sea and the hotel's six-storey glass atrium.

5. Amanusa, Indonesia


Think "New" Bali

Bali’s golf courses are as diverse as the island itself.

A true golf getaway, Amanusa is settled on tropical green hills before an inky-blue Indian Ocean. A stay here earns guests' complimentary use of Bali's three golf clubs - The Bali Golf and Country Club, The Nirwana Bali Golf Club and The Bali Handara Country Club.
