21 Great Golf Resorts for Couples

I'm not someone who goes overboard for Valentine's Day, but with the "holiday" falling today, I thought it would be a great time to answer a question I get quite often.

It goes something like this...

"I want to take my [special someone] away for [a special occasion]. Which golf resorts best combine a truly romantic, couples retreat with high-quality golf?"

A tall order, to be sure -- especially if your mate doesn't play the game -- but a few places are so good, you'll both be on cloud nine on and off the course.

Here are some of my top picks, and I definitely want to hear yours.

Unless noted, all of these romantic retreats have golf on site....
