Fairways also contains informative Golfing boxes that offer the information every golfer needs to know: architects, tour stops, turf, par, yardage, rating, and slope. But what Fairways also provides are Experiencing boxes that highlight the splendid non-golf activities that abound at each of these exceptional resorts.
