Horseshoe Bay Golf Club

Brandt Snedeker, 28

Where he’d like to retire: Florida Keys

Why: “I’m a big fisherman — it’s my favorite thing to do other than golf — so I can definitely see myself down there in the sunny Keys.”

Where you can join him: Ocean Reef Club, Key Largo, Fla.
This aqua-oriented retreat 50 miles south of Miami is quite a catch. There are two private courses; a hotel, salon and spa; a private 4,000-foot runway; and of course, superb deep-sea fishing.

Why: “It’s where I am now, and I’m looking forward to being with family. I’ll play golf with my buddies, do a lot of hunting and play cards.”

Where you can join him: Vaquero, Westlake, Texas.
A private Tom Fazio-designed course is the star, but close behind are past or present residents like Corey Pavin, Justin Leonard and Hank Haney. Fishing fans will love the on-site ponds.
