Golf In Mazatlán México Makes Memories

Only 10 minutes from the airport we arrive at the Las Villas Hotel at Estrella del Mar, a tranquil resort perched along 3.5 miles of pristine shoreline. From here we were about 22 minutes from Mazatlán’s historic district and her vibrant Zona Dorado – Golden Zone. You’re close enough to enjoy the culture, cuisine, and party atmosphere, but far enough away to relax and escape some of the stress of big city living and play some excellent golf. Estrella Del Mar Estrella del Mar Golf Course is a Robert Trent Jones Jr. design located right at our resort, and...

LinkedGolfers World Hickory Golf Festival

  East Lothian Scotland – As a true golf enthusiast you must have imagined yourself standing on the first tee at one of the most historic links golf courses in the world with 5-foot ocean waves pounding on the coastline forming an ideal backdrop.

Autumn Magic: Chez Montebello, Québec

By Jane and Dave Finn Montebello Quebec – It’s the first week in October, my favourite time of year. The days are still warm and sunny but there’s a bit of a nip in the air at night. The leaves are turning and the trees that line the road to Montebello are a riot of colour; brilliant orange, burning yellow and blazing red. Breathtaking to say the least but even Mother Nature has some competition in this neck of the woods. The World’s Largest Log Resort Venerable is the word that comes to mind as we drive through the...
