At some point, putting with a video-game controller just doesn't cut it anymore and you need to hit a real course. If you're jonesing to link up with a green vacation that really rolls, then hike up your argyles for this week's Escape to Crystal Mountain Resort & Spa in northern Michigan.
Grab your favorite caddy and enjoy a one-night stay for two in a Hotel Room, Sundays to Thursdays ($169) or Fridays and Saturdays ($179); or drive toward a two-night stay for two in Hotel Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($259) or Fridays and Saturdays ($279) between now and December 1, 2012.
Included with any of the options is your choice of two 50-minute nail treatments or two 25-minute massage, facial, or body spa services (with a spa service fee) or two 18-hole rounds of golf with a cart and two buckets of range balls on the Betsie Valley course.
Home to one of the top 25 golf schools according to GOLF magazine, Crystal Mountain has all the makings for an ace of a vacation. The Bestie Valley course offers sparkling creeks, tranquil ponds, and lush meadows accented with wildflowers and flanked by towering pines and hardwoods, creating memorable, picturesque play.
If you'd rather tend to your fair self instead of the fairway, ditch the clubs and head to the Crystal Spa, where you can relax and renew in an 18,500-square-foot oasis in the heart of Crystal Mountain. In addition to your included treatment, you can enjoy a private meditation lounge, steam rooms, infrared saunas, and an outdoor meditation garden with a hot tub.
Savor fine dining and Scottish ales at the Celtic-inspired Thistle Pub & Grille or relax with the family at the more informal Wild Tomato Restaurant & Bar. At the end of the evening, you'll be happy to retreat to your spacious and comfortable room, where you can soak your muscles in the whirlpool tub.
Tee off with this week's Escape, and rediscover the thrill of the mountain that you can't get with a video game.
