Discover the best year-round golfing destinations in the US, perfect for every season. Explore stunning courses and tee off all year long! Golfing bliss awaits.

There’s no need to stow away the clubs and stop playing golf during the winter months. The U.S. is home to many year-round golf destinations where you can continue to tee up even when most of the country is experiencing icy winds, frost and snow delays, and course closures. Oregon’s Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, for example, has been ranked as the premier golf destination in the U.S. by and offers comfortable peak winter temperatures of 68 degrees. In addition, Arizona’s We-Ko-Pa Golf Club and Texas’ Hyatt Regency Lost Pines resort are a couple of other warm-weather destinations also known for their elite golf experiences. Here are 3 places where you can enjoy year-round golfing.

We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, Arizona 

We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Fort McDowell, Arizona, is ideal for year-round golfing. As winter temperatures in this Phoenix suburb can be as high as 70 degrees, you won’t need to wear a jacket before stepping onto the course.

We-Ko-Pa comprises two equally amazing 18-hole layouts, the Cholla and the Saguaro. The Cholla spans 7,225 yards and features 18 holes with plenty of elevation changes to keep the game challenging. The Saguaro features 36 holes and is designed as a traditional-style golf course with wild greens and huge, forgiving fairways not too far from the next tee.

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines, Texas 

Hyatt Regency Lost Pines in Austin, Texas, combines challenging natural terrain with a fun layout suitable for all levels, from beginner to advanced. Lost Pines is a 7,200-yard, par-72 golf course that prides itself on variety. The terrain includes rolling prairies with native grasses that add ample interest and challenge to your game, as well as native pecan trees, wooded ridgelines, and riverside holes.

Even better, you don’t have to book a hotel stay at the Hyatt to be able to reserve tee times here. A session includes 18 holes, practice balls, and a GPS-enabled golf cart. Or, if you’re a serious golfer, you can even consider purchasing your own golf cart to transport you from hole to hole. In particular, electric golf carts are quick and quiet, and low-maintenance (they don’t even need oil changes).

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, Oregon 

Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon provides a true Scottish-style golfing experience—without the chilly weather. The resort spans 1,000 acres and features five courses ideal for all skill levels. Old MacDonald, for example, starts with a short Par-4 and a massive open fairway before the course enters the dunes. This course is popular for its gorgeous views of the Pacific, which will make your game memorable.

A new 19-hole par-3 course called Shorty’s is set to open in May 2024 in wild dunes on the resort. The layout is on a huge hill, which descends into dunes and finishes with a new clubhouse. Holes will range anywhere between 60 to 160 yards.
