Labor Day marks the official conclusion of the summer golf season. So, why not celebrate with one last golf getaway? From coast to coast, we’ve gathered the best Labor Day golf destinations to make the most of your upcoming long weekend.
Labor Day Golf Destinations
1. Streamsong Resort
Bowling Green, Florida
With more than 1,300 golf courses throughout the state, you can’t go wrong with a Labor Day golf vacation to Florida. And Streamsong Resort, located in central Florida, is arguably the best golf destination to spend your long weekend. The resort is sprawled across 16,000 secluded acres about an hour outside of Tampa. Streamsong boasts three world-class golf courses (Streamsong Red, Streamsong Blue, and Streamsong Black). While many Floridian golf courses offer lush fairways and ocean views, the three designs at Streamsong offer a different, links-inspired experience.
2. Broadmoor Golf Club
Colorado Springs, Colorado
Nestled in the foothills of the Cheyenne Mountains, Broadmoor Golf Club serves up two of the most beautiful golf courses in Colorado. The club’s two courses, the East Course and the West Course, were designed by the legendary Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones Sr. The club is no stranger to professional play either. The East Course has hosted several tournaments and is set to host the U.S. Senior Open in 2025.
3. The Coeur d’Alene Resort
Coeur d’Alene, Idaho
The golf course at Coeur d’Alene Resort is not only one of the best Labor Day golf destinations, but it’s also on every golfer’s bucket list. In fact, Coeur d’Alene is home to the world’s only moving and floating green. The 22,000-ton island green, located on the 14th Hole, is connected to land by an underwater cable system that allows the hole to stretch to 220 yards. Once their tee shots find the putting surface, players hop on a boat to get to the green. Back on land, the resort offers much to enjoy over your long weekend including a spa, watersport rentals, a handful of dining options, and more.
4. Sea Pines Resort
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina
How does golf in the morning and beach in the afternoon sound? Make the most of your Labor Day weekend with a stay (and play) at Sea Pines Resort in beautiful Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The Carolina coast has continued to serve up incredible golf conditions and Sea Pines is no exception. The resort is home to three stunning designs that truly showcase the Lowcountry landscape including Heron Point by Pete Dye, Atlantic Dunes by Davis Love III, and, the most famous of the three, Harbour Town Golf Links.
5. Legends Golf Resort
Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
Located in the “Golf Capital of America,” few golf destinations compare to Myrtle Beach. Even fewer compare to the Legends Golf Resort offering five world-class golf experiences. Three of the five courses, the Heathland, Moorland, and Parkland, are all centrally located just 20 minutes from downtown Myrtle Beach. The resort’s remaining two courses are spread out along the Grand Strand. Oyster Bay Golf Links is located on the northern end in Sunset Beach, North Carolina and The Heritage Club is on the southern end in Pawleys Island, South Carolina.
6. Pinehurst Resort
Pinehurst, North Carolina
Nine golf courses, one short course, one putting course, and unlimited fun… sound familiar? Pinehurst Resort, otherwise known as The Cradle of American Golf, is one of the most epic Labor Day golf destinations. While one long weekend isn’t enough time to enjoy all the resort has to offer, it’s more than enough time to play courses No. 2 and No. 4 – the two most popular of the nine total courses. Pinehurst Resort has hosted dozens of professional golf tournaments and was recently named the USGA’s first anchor site for the U.S. Open. It occupies a truly stunning setting in the sandhills of North Carolina and offers plenty to do off the course, too, including a spa, a nearby lake for watersports fun, and several dining options.
7. The Greenbrier
White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia
So, we’ve covered the Cradle of American Golf. But, have you considered a visit to “America’s Resort?” The Greenbrier has long been regarded as one of the nation’s best golf destinations. The property dates back to 1778 with many unbelievable stories having unfolded in its walls among the Allegheny Mountains. The resort offers three courses along with a 9-hole, par-3 walking course. Like many others on our list, the Greenbrier is a favorite among professional golfers having hosted a Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup, and several PGA Tour events.
8. Big Cedar Lodge
Golf at Big Cedar Lodge is truly BIG. With a total of five golf courses, including the Tiger Woods-designed Payne’s Valley, Big Cedar is the ultimate Labor Day golf destination. The resort is nestled in the heart of the Ozarks, affording stunning mountain views from almost every vantage point. There’s plenty to enjoy after your round, too, including fishing, boat cruises, horseback riding, hiking, biking, watersports, and so much more.
9. La Quinta Resort & Club
La Quinta, California
A total of five championship courses, highlighted by the renowned Stadium Course at PGA WEST, await you on your Labor Day getaway to La Quinta Resort & Club. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a collection of golf courses like those at La Quinta Resort. But, the amenities off the fairways are equally as impressive. Whether it’s a day spent poolside or an afternoon at the spa, La Quinta Resort & Club is sure to please.
10. BOYNE Golf
Harbor Springs, Michigan
For a golf-packed Labor Day vacation, look no further than BOYNE Golf in beautiful Northern Michigan. BOYNE features 10 golf courses all unique in their own right.
