Top Destinations for Corporate Golf Events & Charity Golf Tournaments

Atlanta, Georgia
Golfers still waiting for their invite to Augusta National or the East Lake Golf Club can enjoy greater Atlanta’s first-class public golf courses including:

  • The Frog Golf Club, with a course designed by the famous golf course architect Tom Fazio
  • Bear’s Best, with course designs by Jack Nicklaus.  
  • The Chateau Elan Golf Course in Braselton offers scenic vineyard views
  • Stone Mountain Golf Club has two equally breathtaking course options.

Chicago, Illinois
With more than 200 courses in the metro area, Chicago has an abundance of golf courses in a variety of price points. Cog Hill Golf & Country Club in nearby Lemont is one of the best public courses in the area. Closer in town, Jackson Park and Sydney R Marovitz  (adjacent to Lake Michigan) are excellent options. During winter, picturesque Diversey Driving Range’s covered, heated hitting deck is the ideal place to practice your swing.

Kansas City, Kansas
Kansas City may not be top of mind as a premier golfing destination, but Prairie Dunes consistently ranks in the Top 30 US golf courses. The links-style course includes some of the highest shot values from tee to green, according to an article in Golf Digest. Golfers looking for more traditional layouts have plenty to choose from in Kansas City.

Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Cheese, beer, brats, and golf - Milwaukee has it all! Did you know that Wisconsin has 500 public golf courses as well as fairways designed by the famed Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer? Golf Advisor sing’s Milwaukee’s praises and raves about the  Erin Hills Golf Course (host of the 2017 U.S. Open) and The Bog, a well-loved Arnold Palmer course that “has settled into just about everyone's best courses lists.”

Golf Events are Big in Texas!

Golfers of all levels will find something to savor in Austin. Lakes, rolling hills and excellent post-round food and drink add to Austin’s appeal. So much so, Austin was recently added to GOLF magazine’s list of best golf cities in America.

Players can enjoy scenic views of Lake Travis at Palmer Lakeside, while the Slick Rock course at Horseshoe Bay includes a 35-yard waterfall you can drive across in a golf cart. For more, check out Golf Digest’s slideshow of Where to Play Golf in Austin.

Dallas offers some of the world’s best golfing - literally. Purpose-built courses replicate famous holes from around the United States and the United Kingdom.

  • Take a swing at famous (and infamous) holes from Augusta National, TPC Sawgrass and Winged Foot at Tour 18.
  • Attempt some of the world’s most challenging links-style holes at The Tribute Golf Club
  • Visit Stevens Park, a course known as “Little Augusta.”

San Antonio
In San Antonio you’ll find championship-level courses and a diverse array of daily-fee courses, including the A.W. Tillinghast-designed Brackenridge Park. Guests at the JW Marriott TPC can tee off at two, 18-hole championship golf courses used for both PGA and Champions Tour events. Looking for an equally-beautiful but all-levels course? Consider Tapatio Springs Hill Country Resort.
