Top World Golf Destinations for 2014

March 28, 2014

To a greater degree than practically any other sport, golf enjoys a particularly special relationship with its surroundings. How could a cycling velodrome, a murky boxing ring or a swimming pool reeking of chlorine ever offer that same connection with the venue that a golf course can, whether that's on the rugged coast of St Andrew's in Scotland or beneath the monolithic skyscrapers of the oil rich in Abu Dhabi . The game of golf offers more than enough reasons in itself for its own greatness, but truly special golf destinations represent a sizable cherry on top of the pie. Here are a few of the very best where the world's leading golfers will be competing over the course of 2014:

Thailand Open - Thana City Golf & Sports Club, Thailand - March 13-16 - This Japan Tour stop-off might not feature the most sensational names in golf, per se, but it certainly takes place in one of the most sensational locations. The Thana City Golf & Sports Club marries opulence and exoticism in striking fashion, whilst the country at large offers a breathtaking travel experience, whether you're into relaxing beach breaks on paradise islands or colourful city encounters in otherworldly metropolises like the capital Bangkok.

FedEx St Jude Classic - Memphis, Tennessee - June 5-8 - This June's FedEx St Jude Classic should prove to be a real belter. With 500 FedEx Cup points up for grabs and a healthy $5,800,000 purse thrown in to the bargain for good measure, the top North American golfers will be out in force. So what's the draw of the location?

Memphis has a lot going for it, from great dining to an internationally renowned film festival, but if you're gonna make this your destination of choice, it's gotta be all about the music. This is the town that gave Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and many other greats their breaks, and you'll still find a thriving Memphis music scene inhabiting the bars and music venues of the city to this day.

Shriner's Hospitals for Children Open - Las Vegas, Nevada - October - This PGA Tour event, formerly the Justin Timberlake Shriner's Hospitals for Children Open, takes place every October in the casino capital of the world, Las Vegas. Why not practice your swing at the local golf club, brush on your roulette and poker at casinogamesonnet.com and don your finest suit, before jetting off to the Nevada desert? Doesn't sound too shabby to us!
