It’s nice, but it’s no Las Ventanas…
Portland, Ore. (Vocus) February 4, 2010
Mixed twosomes, rejoice. The A Position.com has named the best golf resorts for mixing your favorite indoor and outdoor sports. The second installment of “The A List”—a monthly compendium of expert golf and travel info—discloses where these experienced golf and travel experts most want to.
The A Position’s writers searched for locations that put the “hot” in hotel, with balmy weather, hands-on spa treatments, secret passageways for midnight trysts, succulent meals, even provocative golf course mounding. From Sicily to Thailand, Mexico to Ontario, The A Position’s laborers of love reveal where to take your paramour for Valentine’s Day—or any time of the year—when you want to play a round.
The A Position.com is a network of websites featuring the world’s best golf and travel writers. The term “The A Position” refers to the best place a golfer can land his tee shot. On the web, it refers to the site where readers will want to land for great golf and travel journalism.
Eight writers—who among them have written more than 20 books and thousands of articles for leading newspapers and magazines, and visited thousands of the world’s best golf courses—have pooled their talents and experiences to create The A Position.com’s vast portfolio of varied and ever-evolving content.
Each writer publishes his own website, which includes golf content as well as specialty subjects—ranging from adventure travel to real estate. Each writer hosts a forum where readers can respond to stories and generate a conversation.

Crossroads of civilizations, Sicily is etched with more than 3,000 years of history. But it’s a recent newcomer that’s proven to be every bit as smoldering as Mt. Etna…
Fairmont Scottsdale, Scottsdale, Arizona
It’s hard for people, much less a golf resort, to fake real corporal passion. Yet this resort succeeds in setting the mood for some after-round fooling around better than any I’ve visited…
Anantara Phuket Resort and Spa, Phuket, Thailand
Searching for hot—weather, food, “extra-curricular” activities, whatever—it’s hard to out-sizzle Thailand…
Delta Sherwood Inn, Muskoka, Ontario, Canada
With a name like the Delta Sherwood Inn, it sounds more like a quaint respite to take Grandma for her birthday. But behind closed doors in the plantation-style Inn, the place can be rocking…

Hot like a Bond girl, The Grove is a slinky, provocative five-star resort 30 minutes outside London…
Masseria San Domenico Resort and Spa, Savelletri di Fasano, Italy
After toasting your limbs on a private beach on the Adriatic, a plunge into the salt water Talassotherapy spa sets the senses tingling…
Fairmont Mayakoba, Playa del Carmen, Mexico
