Aviara Golf Club at Park Hyatt Resort

The slightly inland locale removes it from the cold coastal fog, but keeps it bathed by sea breezes, which caress even the hottest of golfers after yet another three-putt on the wildly undulating greens. Actually, the greens aren't quite that demanding on this memorable Arnold Palmer design -- but perhaps folks are distracted by the handsome, but pesky wetlands and the colorful bursts of flowers that unfold across the layout.
