A Golfer's Paradise

Invented in its modern form in 15th-century Scotland, golf was not a favorite pastime of Scottish King James II, who in 1457 outlawed the game for being an unsavory distraction from archery. Don’t get us wrong, we love bow-and-arrow sports, but at Bernardus Lodge & Spa, you’ll more often find us hitting 18 holes out on the green. Exactly which green is another question.

Our Carmel Valley resort is an easy ride from 19 elite courses, making Bernardus Lodge and Spa the perfect home base for your extended golfing vacation. As our guest, you’ll have access to luxury transportation, gourmet onsite dining, and an award-winning spa, where our expert massage therapists are eager to tailor a restorative sports massage to your individual needs to help you stay in peak playing condition. If you’re not yet familiar with the many fantastic golf courses in our area, don’t worry, we have top-notch concierge services as well. Just tell us a little about your ideal day on the fairway, and we’ll make all the arrangements.
