Quail, Pheasant or Clay?
(SEA ISLAND, GA) Whether you live at Frederica or Ocean Forest, or simply enjoy vacationing at Sea Island, there’s no lack of outdoor activities to entertain. Sea Island's newest experience 45 minutes south of the island, Broadfield, is a 5,800-acre sporting property on the grounds of one of the South's earliest hunting clubs. With a newly opened sporting clays course, you can now enjoy shooting clays as well as pheasant and quail. Hunting season is now open and there are options for novices, as well as seasoned shooters. The activities are open to Sea Island members and resort guests. Freshwater fishing for largemouth bass and Georgia hybrid bream is complimentary with many of the shooting activities.

It Takes a Village
LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) If you’re headed toward Sarasota this winter, you can check out a community where you can truly live, work, and play without leaving home.

The community has eight shopping districts, plenty of restaurants, schools, business parks, hospital and medical center, and polo and cricket clubs. It's a big place. How big? Find out what it would be like to live here by visiting one of the Lakewood Ranch or Lake Club Information Centers and completing a Visitor Registration Card. You will receive a 2-Day VIP Club Membership Certificate to redeem for a 2-day membership card at the Country Club where you can try out the golf course, athletic center (with tennis, fitness and aquatics), and the lounge, grille, or dining room. You’ll get all the details when you register.

(DOONBEG, IRELAND) Some places are hard to leave. Thanks to Donald Trump, Doonbeg on the southwest Irish coast, with arguably Greg Norman’s best design, doesn’t have to be one. Sure, you can enjoy an extended stay at Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland ((formerly the Lodge at Doonbeg). But as luxurious as the hotel is, it’s not home. Though Trump rarely mixes his golf and real estate business, he’s made an exception here with the introduction of The Residences at Trump Doonbeg. Expect the views to be sweet. Some of the one-to-four bedroom residences will offer ocean views. Just as sweet is the reciprocity with other Trump clubs that those who buy these developer properties will enjoy.

(HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC) Don’t know about you, but we might be heading a few miles down the road from our office to Palmetto Hall Plantation Club to get a first hand look. This past Sunday, three different golfers made hole-in-ones from the blue tees on the eighth hole of the Robert Cupp Course. To add to the excitement, it happened during The Amateur Golf Tour Championship (sponsored by GolfWeek). The first two aces came from consecutive foursomes. How rare is this feat? Dan Moscar, GM at Palmetto Hall, said, We generally have a hand full of holes-in-one annually, but to have three is one day is unbelievable! In all my years in the industry, I have never had two holes-in-one in one day, let alone three." And then there’s that 81-year old that had three holes-in-one in three consecutive days on a buddy trip to Myrtle Beach a week ago. Feeling bad about not bagging your own ace yet?
