Let's face it: The price of the perfect Florida vacation can leave you a little teed off. But you don't have to putt up serious cash to hit both the beach and the links at an award-winning Miami resort with this week's Escape.
Named one of the World's Best Hotels by Travel + Leisure in 2011 and 2012, Turnberry Isle Miami sets the par for resorts in the Sunshine State.
Stay three nights in March or April in a Deluxe Room ($718) or a Deluxe Golf View Room ($858), and enjoy included resort fees and a $100 resort credit. Or, opt to travel in May, June, July, or August and stay in a Turnberry Room for three nights ($658), and score green fees for two on Soffer Course, along with included resort fees and a $50 resort credit.
The AAA Four Diamond Award-winning accommodations feature contemporary furnishings with neutral tones, marble bathrooms with rainfall shower heads, flat-screens with web TV, and balconies or patios with views of the resort.
Drop any little ones off for activities at Kids' Connection, then practice your swing on one of two immaculate, Golf Digest four-and-a-half star courses redesigned by Raymond Floyd or head to the Spa & Fitness Center—a trilevel sanctuary of pampering with treatments galore.
Off the golf course, sand is a very good thing and the Beach Club has its own private stretch of it. Soak up the sun on one of the plush lounge chairs or beds; seek the shade in one of the 18 private cabanas, equipped with a TV and refrigerator, available for an additional fee. The Laguna Pool is a 7,500-square foot splash ground, complete with waterslide, lazy river, zero-entry toddler area, hot tub, and seaside grill.
Just don't drop the ball when it comes to dinner reservations at the resort: BOURBON STEAK—renowned Chef Michael Mina's restaurant—is known for its prime and aged cuts of beef and American wagyu, lobster pot pie, and truffled mac 'n' cheese, while Cascata Grille offers creative Italian-American cuisine prepared with herbs, spices, fruit, and vegetables plucked daily from the chef's on-site garden.
After all, you can hit a hole in one and still have some green left over.
