Omni Mount Washington Resort, Bretton Woods, N.H. — A historic hotel with a classic golf course. Tough to beat, right? Omni Mount Washington — originally dubbed Mount Washington Hotel — opened in 1902 and still boasts the meticulous and elegant craftsmanship as it did 100-plus years ago. In 1986 it was declared a National Historic Landmark, and in 1999 it began welcoming guests for the winter. Now it’s a skiing destination as well as a family and golf getaway. Omni started managing the property in 2009 (before buying in 2015), invested significantly to improve the hotel while also keeping its old-world charm and also built a massive spa and conference center. Mount Washington Golf Course is a 1915 Donald Ross design and is one of the best public courses in New Hampshire, but there’s also a more family-friendly 9-hole track. If some of the family doesn’t like golf, don’t sweat it — there’s hiking, biking, carriage ridges and, yes, skyway gondola rides. [Book here]

Wilderness Hotel and Golf Resort, Wisconsin Dells, Wis. — If you are from the Midwest, you know of the Wisconsin Dells. And if you don’t, get ready to be introduced to a colossal watery haven your kids will fall in love with. All the action might stress you out, or maybe you’ll turn into a kid again and love it too. Wilderness Resort is just one of the several resorts in this vacation town, but it’s the only one that dubs itself America’s Largest Waterpark Resort and boasts four indoor and four outdoor water parks. But we love it because it also has a golf course, Wild Rock Golf Club, and a short course called The Woods. If you want even more golf, there’s lots in the area. But don’t kid yourself: this specific trip might be waterpark-heavy on your itinerary. [Book here]

Big Cedar Lodge, Ridgedale, Mo. — No surprise here. When GOLF launched its inaugural list of the best 100 resorts in the United States, Big Cedar Lodge was ranked first for families. And you know what? It’s only gotten better since. Tiger Woods’ first public design, Payne’s Valley, opened in 2020 to give the mega-resort its third 18-hole course (Payne’s Valley also boats an unreal 19th bonus hole) to go with its par-3 course and short course. Besides golf, the fishing, the boat cruises, kayaking and other countless water activities, there’s also a 50,000-square-foot area literally called Fun Mountain that has everything — bowling, laser tag, go-carts, a ropes course, an arcade, massive play area and more. Hungry? No sweat. There are a dozen restaurants on site. [Book here]

The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, Colo. — You’ve probably heard of this one before. It ranked first for general excellence in GOLF’s Top 100 Resorts in the U.S. list from 2019, and for good reason: there’s something for everyone. The Broadmoor Golf Club has two 18-hole courses, the East and West, designed by Donald Ross and Robert Trent Jones. (Jones added 18 holes in the 60s, and holes from both architects make up the current East and West routings.) The courses have hosted several USGA championships, the most recent the 2018 U.S. Senior Open, won by David Toms. With the elevation, the views are spectacular, but so is virtually everything else at this luxury getaway nestled in the Colorado mountains. There’s loads of dining options, outdoor activities, a bowling alley and an epic movie theater the kids will love. [Book here]
