Travel & Leisure: Best Golf Get-Aways

Friday, 22 Dec 2006 | 1:56 PM ET

Winter is here - especially if you're in the Midwest - and that golf getaway might start sounding more and more enticing. On today's "Power Lunch," Bill Griffeth found out which courses are the "Best Warm Weather Golf Get-Aways."

Paul Rogers, Senior Editor of Travel & Leisure Golf Magazine explained his picks.

The “White Witch” golf course at the Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaicaopened 6 years ago and boasts some of the most stunning and serene views of any course in the world.

The Ocean Course at The Breakers Resort in Palm Beachhas been open since the 1920’s and survived two major fires. Rogers called it one of the most iconic courses and is known for its elegance and style. The Breakers actually boasts 2 courses – one is the oldest 18-hole course in Florida.

Rogers' also likes The Doral Golf Resort & Spa in Miami. Hit the links at The Doral and play in the footsteps of Greg Norman, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson.

Rogers said all three courses cost about the same – although they certainly don’t run cheap. He also noted that the period right after the holidays is a good time to book these trips – not only to beat the weather, but also to beat the crowds.
