For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Women’s Travel Club, the group has been running trips since 1992, and has made spa trips part of its repertoire for years, including visits to some of the country’s top destination spas like Red Mountain Spa in Utah and Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires.
If you are more relaxed on the links than on a massage table then consider booking a trip with Serendipity Traveler. The group is offering a 5-day golf outing specifically designed for women.
For $1,400 you’ll be treated to an unforgettable vacation at California’s Monterey Peninsula and Carmel Valley, home to some of the country’s finest courses.

A variety of other activities are also planned as part of the package deal so you can experience the surrounding area, including a wine tasting at a local vineyard, a Big Sur coastal outing, and a gallery stroll in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
