Traveling the Greens

Traveling is a way of life for many casual golfers who spend vacations attending major tournaments at famous courses such as Pebble Beach Golf Links, TPC Sawgrass and Bethpage Black. At Pebble Beach, the views and the greens are awe-inspiring, and so is the expense. Suites at the Lodge at Pebble Beach run $2,000 per night. Golfers made more than 155 million golf-related trips in 2011, says SRI, spending an average of $177 per person on such things as lodging and car rentals. The result: Golf travel accounted for $20.6 billion in sales in 2011, up from $18 billion in 2005.
