I write this golf feature for women who love to golf. Women are falling for this game and I too have fallen truly, madly, deeply in love with golf. My summer afternoons are spent daydreaming about which course to play and plotting whether I can sneak away early enough fromrepparttar 139417 office to play a full round.

I want to share my passion forrepparttar 139418 game. My features will discussrepparttar 139419 journey,repparttar 139420 accommodations,repparttar 139421 game and experience, from a woman's perspective. Yes, I will describerepparttar 139422 game fromrepparttar 139423 forward tees.

My goal is simple: to share my "experiences" hoping that you, my dear readers, are encouraged to explore some ofrepparttar 139424 wonderful golf resorts that North America, andrepparttar 139425 world, has to offer. Golf is a wonderful game and I hope to share my enthusiasm with you.

Girls just want to have fun, and in our case, fun means golf! I love to golf and in fact,repparttar 139426 gals and I belong to a "ladies league" just so we can golf once a week. We do this for a couple of reasons - to improve our game and to escape from life's daily annoyances, if only for a few hours.

By January, I commence fantasizing about golf as I shovel mass amounts of snow. I stand in my driveway, shovel in hand, totally engrossed in my fantasy. I smellrepparttar 139427 freshly cut fairways and hearrepparttar 139428 chatter ofrepparttar 139429 birds. It's hot and I wiperepparttar 139430 sweat from my brow as I plan my next shot. I remove my driver from my golf bag, and then reach into my back pocket for my tee and ball. Instead, a cold, wet mitt presents itself. Reality strikes once again!

I call my girlfriend and shriek, "I need to golf, where are we going and when? It's time to plan our annual golf vacation! - Mexico,repparttar 139431 Carolina's and California are discussed as possible destinations. In pursuit of our goal, I discovered a great website that offers vacation packages to all these locations.

After a lengthy discussion, we choserepparttar 139432 interior of British Columbia for a few reasons. First,repparttar 139433 flight is fairly short from Toronto, second,repparttar 139434 climate is less forgiving out West, and, third, that naughty little phrase, "exchange rate" need not apply.

We chose to stay at Panorama Resort, and resort known to Canadian's for its skiing and golfing. The resort is approximately 20 minutes southwest of Radium, BC. It is rated as a four-star resort, complete with allrepparttar 139435 amenities: spa, restaurants, tennis courts, and shops that sell snacks, beer and a decent bottle of wine. The package also included three rounds of golf, at local courses. We were fortunate enough to chooserepparttar 139436 courses and book our tee-off times prior to our departure. Panorama is also home to Grey Wolf, classified as one of Canada's top 100 golf resorts.

We flew direct to Calgary, Alberta. Total flying time was 4 hours. We departed early inrepparttar 139437 morning to ensure that we arrived in Calgary with enough daylight to drive throughrepparttar 139438 mountains. We packed our rental car (one large enough to fit our clubs and massive amount of luggage), foundrepparttar 139439 map, and headed west. Much like our ancestors, I knew heading west would eventually lead me to my paradise where my fleeting dream would be fulfilled.

The drive from Calgary torepparttar 139440 interior BC is approximately 2.5 hours. I love to drive, but my girlfriend was driving, and I was jealous! However, after some thought, I changed my mind and considered myself lucky, because while her eye was onrepparttar 139441 road, mine was onrepparttar 139442 approaching vistas. If you haverepparttar 139443 opportunity to take this trip, happily relinquish your driving rights becauserepparttar 139444 sights are truly breathtaking.
