As the sun's rays reach just a little bit farther and the soft breezes blow with a faint scent of freshly cut grass, there's one thing on your mind: it's time to get back out on the links.

Today, you're escaping to a resort with an 18-hole championship course that Golf Digest named one of top five places to play in Georgia.

North Georgia's Brasstown Valley Resort and Spa is known far and wide for its Denis Griffiths-designed course that winds through wildlife preserves, ponds, and streams for unparalleled play. And, you'll get a full day of unlimited golf for you and a companion with this one-night weekday package for two ($191) that includes cart rental, green fees, use of the driving range, and of course, a luxurious evening spent in one of the lodge's cosy rooms, whose windows gaze out upon impressive mountainous vistas.

Those avid outdoorsmen out there have even more options beyond the links. Enjoy the miles of hiking trails surrounding the resort or wet a line at Brasstown's own stream to find your freshest catch. Meanwhile, the Stables offer guests guided mountain trail horseback rides through fields and hardwood forests.

Wind down at the Equani Spa with a massage, followed by a sumptuous meal of pecan-crusted Georgia brook trout at the resort's restaurant. Have a nightcap curled up before the lodge's giant stone fireplace and call it a day. For Brasstown, all these intricate luxuries are simply par for the course.
