The Bucket List

Not to impugn our panelists, but we didn't exactly need experts to make this choice. Virtually everyone who loves golf dreams of teeing up in the place where it all started. "I'll never be able to hit a line drive at the Elysian Fields [site of the first recorded baseball game in Hoboken, New Jersey], but I hope to play a round one day at the birthplace of golf," says Abramson. The best-kept secret in golf travel is the "Old Course in Reverse" package. Offered once a year, the multiday excursion gives you a round on the Old and a round on the original routing, which is done in reverse from the 18th tee to the first. Honorable Mentions: David Baum, editor and publisher of specialized golf travel newsletter Golf Odyssey, plays in New Zealand because of its fantastic courses and stunning beauty. "Popular belief is that it requires two weeks or more," says Baum. "We shattered this myth earlier this year when we outlined how one can experience the best of this golf paradise while only being out of the office a mere five days." Golf journalist Jeff Wallach voted for China's Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, one of the longest and highest courses in the world.
