Learning golf is hard, but there is no reason it cannot be fun—and luxurious, to boot. The Boulders Resort & Spa—set among giant rocks and majestic cacti north of Phoenix—makes a day of instruction both meaningful and memorable with personalized pampering on the range and the course, and well into the evening. The resort’s Elite Golf Experience is the ultimate swing seminar for your favorite foursome, beginning with a stretching session led by a trainer from the resort’s spa, followed by a driving-range warm-up under the trained eyes of an expert coach. The instructor accompanies the group for an 18-hole round on one of the resort’s two beautiful (and challenging) courses, providing a hands-on playing lesson of mechanics and strategy. Also in attendance is a golf concierge who will clean clubs, read greens, and help with other necessities; and there is a dedicated beverage cart with unlimited service. The day ends with a post-round barbecue, rare whiskeys, and custom-made cigars. Each golfer also will be outfitted with the Boulders hats, shirts, and balls. With any luck, the Elite Golf Experience—priced at $6,000 per foursome—may just turn a few duffers into devotees. (theboulders.com)
