In response to: China's Grand Hyatt Shanghai, a perfect location for a city trip

Stephen [Visitor]
I have to travel a lot for my business, primarily in Europe and Asia to great cities like Shanghai, but often in the states. I used to use sites like Travelocity to book my hotels, but I accidentally stumbled upon the better way to find deals: go to the second level sites - those like http://ReservationCreation.com/shanghai-china.html who compare the hundreds of different booking sites in one single search. You'll not only see Trivago or Expedia deals, but ALL OF THEM in one place. I must have saved over 3,000 Euros since I started using ReservationCreation. I sincerely believe that using only one of the top booking sites is not necessarily the best idea.

Not only should you play like a champion, but you should look the part too!

In response to: LUMINE Mediterranea Beach & Golf Club is the new draw for golfers visiting Barcelona

I have played the Hills course, the day before the clubhouse attached to it was to close down for the next three months. I found the course challenging, and varied, and favored heavily the second nine with very nice green settings with cliff backdrops. The condition of the course was impeccable, even though the greens could have been faster. However, the atmosphere was not there: the service was quite indifferent, and management obviously did not care who played or how, which resulted in an appalling pace of play (5:45 hours for a round, with buggies!!!). The proshops at both Hills and Lakes were emptier of goods than most, especially when it comes to resorts.

In response to: Golf in Cyprus: A hidden gem in the Mediterranean Sea

Simon [Visitor]
Thanks for your report.
Yes we have have some great Golf courses in Cyprus.
In my opinion Minthis Hills is a great Club and their Restaurant is superb , but the residential area is a long way from being finished , there are some villas there , but it will be a few more years yet. The owners have a 10 year plan for Minthis Hills , but it will be fantastic . The villas start at 1 million.
Aphrodite Hills Golf Resort is superb and definitely the best on Cyprus. It is not just a Golf Resort , it also has the Annabel Croft Tennis Acadomy , superb Spa centre , horse riding center , 5 star hotel and a "village square" with Cafes and Restaurants. The property choice is the best on the island , with apartments starting at 100,000 going up to exclusive villas at multi millions. All property owners get up to 30% discount at all the Resort Facilities.
The course is spread out across the whole resort and winds its way through the residential properties , so a buggy is required. There are beautiful sea views and Aphrodite Hills Resort has a free shuttle bus service to their private beach club.
Aphrodite Hills is just a short drive to the beautiful seaside town of Paphos , with it's lovely harbour and many attractions. There are 4 excellent Golf courses within a 20 minute drive of Paphos and another course currently being built at Polis.
Paphos is the up and coming new exclusive area of Cyprus , the international airport is starting to take over as the main one for the island. There are many more direct flights from Paphos from all parts of the World , as Cyprus is being discovered by Russia , China and many new markets.
If you require details on holiday rentals or property sales , please email me and I will help in anyway I can.

I think they'll starve to death in that part of Florida with those ridiculous green fees.

In response to: Top U.S. golf course you can play: Pebble Beach or Pacific Dunes?

scott pierce [Visitor]
I have been blessed to played (blessed because I am a nobody public golfer) on tracks like Bethpage Black, (grew up on that one) Sawgrass, Tory Pines..and Pebble , now a few times... No golf courseis worth that koind of money.That being said Pebble is a place where you feel the history.Where you walk on one the Golf Gods great gifts to his followers. As Jack said if you only get to play one more round.. you play it at Pebble Beach.. PS.. for the average decent public golfer # 6 is a spectacular hole.

Tremendous place and view..I agree with the fact that the landscape and layout is totally different from all the other Florida courses which makes it a “must play” in book..

Pacific Dunes has always been my favorite..It looks great..Golf resort looks beautiful as there is greenery all over..The unorthodox back nine boasts two par 4s, three par 5s and four par 3s.

In response to: My home club: Galloway National Golf Club in New Jersey

I cannot agree with you more. My wife and I joined the club this year too. We are from New York and have a shore home in NJ. We were looking for a private club we could play that had the same characteristics you described. Galloway, we find, is that club.
Everyone there is friendly, helpful, and make it a pleasure to be there. The course as you describe is golfer friendly, yet challenging. The layout is exciting with beautiful backdrops, and the conditions are suburb.
Thankfully we don't have to travel as far as you do to play.
All the best
Al
