It's two minutes from Dallas-Fort Worth airport's baggage claim to Bear Creek's bag drop.

Many of the country’s busiest airports are a short taxi ride from solid public tracks, so if you need a good way to spend a layover — or a good excuse to
miss your flight — take a flier on one of these courses.

Stuck at … Oakland International, Oakland, Calif.
At Oakland Metropolitan($40-$75; 510-569-5555, the feel is laid-back, but the conditions say country club. Less than five minutes from baggage claim to bag drop.

Stuck at… Dallas-Fort Worth International, Dallas, Texas
It’s a two-minute drive to the clubhouse at Bear Creek Golf Club ($45-$59; 972-456-3200,, where of the two options the West Course is as tough as an
ornery rattlesnake.

Stuck at… McCarran International, Las Vegas, Nev.
In a town not known for great golf values, the Legacy Golf Club ($100- $155; 702-897-2187, in Henderson is your best bet. Holes 11 through 13 are sinister par 4s known as the Devil’s Triangle. Expect a 20-minute ride from the airport.

Stuck at… John F. Kennedy International, New York, N.Y.
From JFK it’s 20 minutes — or 10 minutes if you hook up with a crazy cabbie — to Lido Golf Club ($31-$47; 516-889-8181,, where Robert Trent Jones Jr. reworked C.B. Macdonald’s original design.
