Get your clubs ready; these exclusive new experiences are perfect for any avid golfer.

As many courses across begin to reopen, we detail a new set of exceptional experiences for passionate golfers. From a three-day golf extravaganza in Scottsdale to access to some of the United States’ most exclusive clubs to golfing alongside a professional, here are five new experiences that any golf enthusiast will covet.


The Xperience

Available by application and subsequent invitation only, The Xperience is a three-day golf escape that seamlessly blends the acclaimed performance of PXG’s outstanding golf clubs — 14 clubs are included — with the breathtaking beauty, bespoke service, and world-class accommodations that are uniquely and only Scottsdale National Golf Club.

An exclusive, members-only oasis in the Sonoran Desert, Scottsdale National presents golf as it should be played. No tee times required, wide-open fairways across forty-five holes with no homes lining the courses — this is not part of a residential development as many courses are — supported by two distinctive clubhouses with stunning views and unexpected amenities.

Access to prestigious Old Marsh Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens

This small and exclusive golf club is continually ranked as one of the best in the country. Having been awarded an Audubon International award for their environmental awareness — the course is surrounded by hundreds of acres of wetlands that will never be developed — it is a lovely and secluded course on which to golf.

Highly selective with fewer than 300 members, the 18-hole championship course is oft secluded. Designed by Peter Dye, it is meticulously maintained. Access to the course and club without membership is incredibly rare — this opportunity is truly unparalleled.

Pebble Beach

Golf with Amanda Balionis at Pebble Beach

Join CBS golf reporter Amanda Balionis on the course at world-famous Pebble Beach. The premiere public golf course in the US, Pebble Beach is the annual host of the PGA TOUR and has hosted six US Opens. Set against the majestic backdrop of California’s Monterey Peninsula, the course is both challenging and beautiful.

Being accompanied by Amanda will elevate your experience; she will share anecdotal expertise as you play the course. Make a stay of it and book in at one of Pebble Beach’s three accommodation options, each casually luxurious and maximising the gorgeous natural surroundings.

Belle Haven Country Club

Access to exclusive Belle Haven Country Club

Featuring extensive practice facilities and nearly 7,000 yards of challenging courses along the banks of the Potomac River, this exclusive Virginia country club has a storied history that remains today. Frequented by politicians and the DC elite, membership is notoriously expensive and hard to come by.

Aiming to build a sense of community within the limited number of members, an exclusive visit will allow you to access not only the incredible golfing but the myriad other amenities as well.

Golf Sea Island with pro Hudson Swafford

Georgia’s nearly 100-year-old Sea Island features three unique courses for all skill levels. Choose one that suits you, and play alongside PGA TOUR pro Hudson Swafford (many of the PGA TOUR pros train here). Instruction is built into the fabric of Sea Island, and in playing here, you’re sure to perfect your game. The classic Seaside Course, consistently ranked amongst the best in the country, is a perfect place to get tips on your swing.

Luxury accommodations and bespoke services, such as shipping your clubs from home in lieu of travelling with them, lend an additional feeling of exclusivity to the overall experience. Many onsite activities mean you can travel with the entire family, as well.
