New Nonstop Flights to Great Golf Destinations

With colder weather approaching, this is the time of year when many of you start thinking about warm-weather getaways.

To that end, I thought you'd like to know about some NEW, nonstop flights that will make it even easier.

(Just so you know, there's a difference between a "direct" flight and a "nonstop" flight. A direct flight may include a stop in an intermediate airport, but a nonstop flight is just that: one takeoff, one landing.)

Some are seasonal, some are permanent...but they're all pretty sweet and brand-new.
