A soup-to-nuts renovation completed in 2012 elevated this golfer's paradise (five championship courses and the site of the yearly Honda Classic pro-tour tournament) from its Caddyshack-style beginnings to a sleek modern playground with a gorgeous zero-entry lagoon pool, seven different places to eat, and a full-service spa with unique mineral-salt therapy pools. The clubhouse is massive, but since the course is open only to hotel guests and members, the greens are not
overcrowded. At the pool, comfy loungers abound, and servers rush over to take your drink order. The spa, which is open to the public and very well respected by locals, has 32 treatment rooms and more than 100 services on its menu. Its six outdoor therapy pools—two with healing salts from the Dead Sea and France's Pyrenees and a cold plunge—are a real treat.
