Birdie, bogey and par — few languages are as international as the one spoken on the golf course. And whether you're in the home of the historic game or on a remote jungle-fringed fairway, the rules remain the same. As for the fairways themselves, not all are made equal, which is why we've taken such care in compiling GAYOT's list of Top 10 Golf Hotels in the World. Quality is our overall concern, but we also want to provide a challenge, so we have selected greens that include sand dunes, glacial lakes, dramatic elevation changes and even a few curious monkeys. As for the 19th hole, we've upped the ante on the typical post-game drink. Each of these courses comes with its own hotel, transforming a day of golf into a relaxing retreat.
