The survey results cover readers' favorite courses and resorts within the U.S., the Caribbean, Mexico, Latin America, Canada and the British Isles.

In the same survey, the Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa, which includes TPC Sawgrass, was named the No. 1 golf resort in Florida and No. 9 on Travel + Leisure Golf's list of the "2008 Top Ten U.S. Golf Resorts." Within those rankings, the Sawgrass Golf Resort & Spa was ranked No. 2 in the U.S. in the category "Best Resorts for Buddy Trips." 

"We are honored to have been recognized by the readers of Travel + Leisure Golf and to be in the company of so many esteemed clubs and resorts worldwide," said TPC Sawgrass General Manager Bill Hughes.
