A “resort style course” is a golf course that is part of a larger resort property. Typically this type of golf community will include a hotel and/or other lodging, usually a spa, as well as an assortment of restaurants. Resort golf courses are often available to the general public to play, one way or another. Usually they are no different than a daily fee course or public course in terms of access – call and make a tee time, and you can play. However, some resort courses are open only to guests staying at the resort.
