GOLF IN THE TROPICS
Surely our alluring cover tempts you to break for a Caribbean getaway this spring. I mean, just look at that white sand and oh-so-blue water! On the off chance you're somehow managing to miraculously resist the temptation, I have news that may well seal the deal for you: Two new luxury resorts in the Dominican Republic and on St. Kitts not only entice with their accommodations but also with challenging golf courses that deliver simply glorious views. If that news got your attention, don't miss "Caribbean Heat" for the skinny on the resorts, as well as details on other new and updated properties throughout these sunny isles that never disappoint this avowed fan.
You'll find golf-related stories spread throughout this issue - after all, it's springtime, when your thoughts start turning to the fairways again. In "Cool in the Shades," writer Scott Kramer spotlights five new sunglasses that will give you a smart, hip look while also helping you improve various aspects of your game. In "The Right Stuff," Scott shifts his attention to some of the best new golf equipment you'll want to know about. Does the time seem right to spoil yourself? If so, writer Paul Rubio has a doozy of a Splurge for you. In "Tee Off Across the Tropics," Paul reports on quite a travel package for you and your golf buddies that involves a private jet, three hard-to-resist coastal destinations, and tee times.
Here's to the golf season ahead - and lots of birdies!
