Golfers, Fans & Golf Event Planners:
Trailways Buses are a Sure Shot
What better way to enjoy the warmth and sunshine of summer and fall than to get out and golf, or watch the pros play? They might not all be as dramatic as watching Jordan Spieth, but you'll have fun either way. Let Trailways buses help get your friends or groups to your events in style and ease.
There are still several big golf tournaments with tickets available all over Canada and the US for August and September! Or make a tee time with your golf pals to play at any of these outstanding US public golf courses.
Or, perhaps you’re a golf event manager planning for big crowds. The best way to get your group to these breathtaking courses is by Trailways charter bus! Our buses offer ample storage for your golf bags and luggage, not to mention give you a relaxing and comfortable ride. Kick-back, watch golf movies, eat or just rest after your round.

Here's a look at our recommended golf trip as you traverse the country by bus.
Arcadia Bluffs; Arcadia, Michigan: This is arguably the most beautiful golf course in all of Michigan, as it’s carved right out of the bluffs on Lake Michigan, spread out over 245 acres. We’d recommend that you make your tee time and start your trip sometime in the late afternoon. This way, as you’re capping your round, you’ll be able to take in the majestic sunset over Lake Michigan.
Cog Hill; Lemont, Illinois: After playing Arcadia Bluffs, ride the Lake Michigan coast south to Lemont, Illinois, and play one of the four courses at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. Founded in 1927, the course has been home to several major golf events, such as the U.S. Amateur Championship and, most recently, the BMW Championship. For an inland course, it doesn't really get any better in the Midwest than Cog Hill.
Harvester Golf Club; St. Rhodes, Iowa: Iowa's most iconic course should be the next stop on your cross-country trip following a round or two at Cog Hill. The cool thing about The Harvester is that it looks like it was carved right out of the fields. The course is in pristine condition and though it’s characterized as a professional course, it’s manageable for golfers of all skill levels. Just be sure to stay out of the thick rough.
Sand Hollow; Hurricane, Utah: Just as how Red Sky is carved out of the mountains, Sand Hollow is carved out of the Utah desert. It’s a beautiful course, complete with elevation changes amid the Utah landscape. We recommend stopping and taking in the scenery on the 10th hole, as it offers one of the best views on the entire course.
Shadow Creek Golf Course; Las Vegas, Nevada: Built by Las Vegas property tycoon Steve Wynn, this Las Vegas course is built right out of the desert and offers some great mountain views. The course terrain really makes this course a solid play, however, as it features the likes of lakes, waterfalls, rolling hills and exotic wildlife viewing if you're lucky.
Sandpiper Golf Club; Santa Barbara, California: Sandpiper is one of the top courses in the state of California and a great tune up for the grand golf finale on this epic cross-country road trip coming up next. Located right along the Pacific Ocean, Sandpiper offers great ocean and mountain views. We’re particularly fond of the Par 5, 13th hole, which is 455 yards (from the gold tee box) of beautiful golf right on the beaches of the Pacific Ocean.
Pebble Beach; Pebble Beach, California: We started this golf trip playing an iconic course on the shores of Lake Michigan and we’ll end it playing one of the most iconic courses in the entire world – Pebble Beach. It’s not cheap to play, but the experience for the golf enthusiast is more than worth it in the end. With pristine views of Carmel Bay and the sounds of the ocean waves crashing into the rocks below you, playing Pebble Beach is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Stop and smell the roses when you get to the Par 3, seventh hole – where you’ll begin from an elevated tee and seemingly be striking straight out into the Pacific Ocean, unbeknownst that the green and pin are right below you about 100 yards up.
The only way to do a golf trip of these proportions is by chartering a Trailways bus. These buses offer ample storage for your clubs and other luggage, not to mention permit a relaxing and comforting on-board environment for you to kick back and relax in as you travel between courses. Reality can wait, you deserve to take the golf trip of a lifetime before summer ends. We’ve got the courses planned out for you from east to west, all you need to do is grab your friends, make your tee times, reserve the bus and enjoy it.
