March/April 2014 Issue:

Cover Story: Reigning In Spain—Southern Spain's Costa del Sol has been Europe's favorite golf-sun-fun playground for a half-century now, but few destinations rate as highly as La Reserva - only a decade old, but rising to legendary heights.

Profile: Jimmy Walker: Reaching for the Stars—As Jimmy Walker rises high in the galaxy of PGA stars, he's also photographing the farthest reaches of the heavens. He is almost as passionate about his astrophotography as he is about golf ... almost. Author Jeff Williams fills us in.

Spotlight: Library of Earthly Delights—As if 27 holes of golf, delightful dining options, stylish rooms, and superior training and fitness facilities weren't enough, a new Scotch Library has opened at Scottsdale's The Westin Kierland, providing yet another reason to visit.

Equipment: Best of PGA Show—With literally hundreds of new products premiering at the PGA Merchandise Show this past January in Orlando, it's hard to pick the winners. But our intrepid equipment guru, Scott Kramer, reports on what he thinks qualify as Best of Show.

January/February 2014 Issue:

Cover Story: Terrific In Texas—Palmilla Beach Golf Club (formerly Newport Dunes) is Texas' only true links course. As if that wasn't good enough, these days, the course and development is experiencing a magnificent transformation, with a new clubhouse, a planned hotel and residences, and an air of excitement.

Profile: Ernie Els: The Perfect Blend—Ernie Els' passion shows through in his golf game, commitment to finding a cure for autism, and willingness to give back to the game. But he is just as passionate about making exceptional wines, as Jeff Williams reveals.

Equipment: Irons In The Fire—With new materials, weighting schemes, and shaping which directly benefit distance, forgiveness, and feel, 2014 is looking like a banner year for new irons. Equipment guru Scott Kramer has tried them all and reports his findings.

November/December 2013 Issue:

Cover Story: Winter Escapes—As the days grow shorter and colder in many regions of the U.S. and around the world, it's time to start dreaming about your next getaway. Luckily for you, Troon has a plethora of choices for a sun-splashed, fairway-filled, much-deserved vacation. Here are a few of our winter favs.

Editor's Note: Still a Silly Season?—Other major sports shut down for at least a few months to let fans and players recharge their batteries. But with the 2014 PGA Tour season starting just weeks after the 2013 season ended, the golf season now feels like it slogs on forever.

Arizona Prime: The People's Country Club—Every club goes through changes—tweaks to the golf course, a renovated dining area. But rarely is a club purchased by its members. That's what happened at FireRock Country Club in Fountain Hills, AZ, and the results are very positive.

Holiday Gifts: 'Tis The Season for Giving...and for Hinting—Our editors suggest several golf goodies to give and — doing a little hinting of our own — several to ask for. From warm winter sweaters to training aids to golf balls, here are some great ideas for your holiday shopping list.

Cover Story: Prince's Golf Club, Restored to the Throne—Wondering where to go in the UK this year? New lodging and retailored courses have made Prince's Golf Club in Sandwich, England, the hot ticket for summer 2013 travel. Prince's is adjacent to regular Open Championship host Royal St. George's, about 75 miles from the center of London and a couple of hours by car from Heathrow Airport. It is also just 45 minutes from the Channel Tunnel and ideal for a stopover at either end of a golf trip.

Cover Story: An American Classic: Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club—Golf is a gentleman's game and, not to be sexist, a gentlewoman's game too. In this issue, we travel to Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where gentlepersons have been playing the game for nearly 100 years, albeit not on the same level of quality they do today. After a complete renovation by Nicklaus Golf in 2010, the course nowadays matches the excellence of the hotel, and combined they truly are "An American Classic."

Profile: Nick Price: Master of a Maddening Game—Nick Price is one of golf's really good guys. These days his focus is on captaining the International team to a Presidents Cup win.

Spotlight: Reinvention of a Kapalua Legend—With a new chef and a tantalizing new menu, The Plantation House at Kapalua Resort is wowing locals and resort guests alike.

March/April 2013 Issue:

Cover Story: OLYMPIC HEIGHTS—Alpensia Resort is quickly becoming known as South Korea's premier golf resort. When the Winter Olympics come to town in 2018, it will get a chance to show off to the world, plus:

  • CAROLINA ON THE MIND—Singer James Taylor put "Carolina" on the minds of many after releasing his classic song in the late 1960s. For residents of St. James Plantation in Southport, NC, it is a sweet song indeed.
  • BEST OF SHOW—There were thousands of new golf-related products introduced at the recent 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando. Selecting the best of those goods was a daunting task. But we managed to pare it down to the top 10.
  • ADRENALINE JUNKIE—Davis Love III's universe is so much greater than golf. He's a snowboarder, snowmobiler, stand-up paddle boarder, hunter, skeet shooter, fisherman, kayaker, and motorcycle enthusiast...your classic thrill-seeker.
  • READY, PREP, GO—The "preppy" look has been a staple of American fashion since the 1940s and '50s, when the term was first used to describe the style of dress favored by Ivy League students. Since then, many purveyors have advanced the look, including Polo/Ralph Lauren and J Crew, but none with more fervor than Tommy Hilfiger.
  • SPOTLIGHT ON: TROON NORTH—If you haven't been to the Dynamite Grille at Troon North Golf Club for a while, both aesthetic and gastronomic surprises await. A renovated dining/bar area, plus a revitalized menu from Executive Chef Danny Woodbridge, have brought new life to the clubhouse at the famed North Scottsdale club.
