I notice grass. I notice how healthy it is, how long it is and how green it is. On road trips I notice how grass changes from locale to locale. It’s a strange habit of mine, especially considering I am allergic to grass. I’m not looking at the stuff because I want to roll around in it that’s for sure. Regardless of its enemy status, I find lush, green grass, very satisfying to look at. It is for this reason I was mesmerised when the book Golf Resorts of the World by Daniel Fallon crossed my path. My oh my, do these resorts have GREEN grass. I know nothing about golf but that did not deter me from being totally engrossed by the golf resorts (and their green, green grass) featured in this book.
Don’t take my word for it. Scroll down to see pictures from three golf resorts featured in the book. I bet you’ll be as entranced as I was.
Golf Resorts of the World by Daniel Fallon (New Holland Publishers) retails for $49.99 and is available from all good bookstores or online at www.newhollandpublishers.com
Fairmont Banff Springs in Alberta, Canada
Just take a look at this grass. This golf resort has two courses that are situated between mountains in the UNESCO World Heritage site, Banff National Park.
Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife, Spain
Grass with a view *cough* I mean golf with a view. Holy moley this golf course is nothing short of stunning. The Ritz-Carlton is located on the island of Tenerife which is part of the Canary Islands.
Four Seasons Hualalai in Hawaii, USA
Notice the dark rocks bordering this course? It’s lava that has cooled into rock. The green grass, black rock and blue ocean make for a stunning visual.
