Nice resort, within 3 hours of Manhattan

Looking for a reasonably upscal resort, within 3 hours of Manhattan. Rooms not to exceed 300 per night. Pool and convenience to golf a big plus.

This is not an uncommon wish/request and I'm always amazed how few options there appear to be. I'm writing this assuming you know the area. If you don't, post back.

Found this list on the web for golf but have no personal experience with any of these places, nor am I sure they're all within the 3 hour range.

If you want to go to Montauk, I think the Montauk Yacht club may be within your budget and there's a public golf course in Montauk. Info for it is here

Gurney's Inn, also in Montauk, has great spa facilities and a lovely location but I hear the rooms are really dated and not worth the money.

There's also a public course on Shelter Island that I hear is not bad. But the most upscale resort there would be the Rams Head Inn. The public space/setting there is very nice (I've never seen the rooms) but it's a bit of a throw back type place (looks like an old fashioned lake resort) and not sure of rates.

The Bath and Tennis Club in Westhampton looks very nice (never saw rooms). It's right on the ocean, has a good (last time I was there) restaurant and a pool. Not sure about golf near there.

Have never been but what about the CT casino places like Mohegan Sun?

The Mohonk Mountain House resort might fit the bill but I always think of it as more of a family place.

The Blantyre in Lenox, Mass is very upscale (may be more than your budget).
