2006: Color burst

The Madrid Chile Festival is the perfect start to any New Mexico vacation. Green chile is why the Land of Enchantment has such a distinctive cuisine. And Madrid, a 400-person artists’ enclave located about 30 miles south of Santa Fe, represents the flavor – in taste and the less-definable New World tone – that locals and visitors have come to know so well.

Problem is, there is no such celebration. The signs are props for a John Travolta movie being shot in the town, one of several recently filmed in the area.

“If you’re not from around here, it’s hard ...

2004: Quintero reaches new frontier

Bradley S. Klein

Peoria, Ariz.

How far out in the Sonoran Desert do you have to go to be a pioneer these days? With Quintero Golf and Country Club, the answer is clear – 40 miles northwest of downtown Phoenix, halfway on the road to Wickenburg. That’s about as remote as Desert Forest Golf Club in Carefree, Ariz., was when that innovative tract opened in 1962, and now burgeoning development north of Scottsdale is nipping at its heels.

Quintero’s owner and visionary, Gary McClung, is counting on the same thing happening to his property. He acquired a remote, 800-acre former mining site ...

2003: More than reggae

Golfweek Staff

The day starts at 6 a.m. when Maxine lets herself into the whitewashed villa and begins to prepare breakfast. I sleepily lift my head, tired from a week’s worth of golf, tennis and coconut rum, and look out the French doors in my bedroom and across a balcony taking on its first bits of sunlight. Below, I see pieces of the Tryall golf course as well as lush hills, a sliver of beach and then the lights of Montego Bay, flicking off one by one in the distance as the moon sets and the birds began to sing ...

2002: Destination - Colors of Cozumel

Golfweek Staff

Once a year, at the start of their birthing season, Cozumel’s 10,000 crabs migrate across the full width of the island, from its raw, unpeopled Atlantic coast to their nesting sites on its calmer western shores. • The journey isn’t easy. Skittering sideways, as crabs do, they traverse 10 miles of dense tropical jungle before arriving at the beach hotels that face the Mexican mainland. Cautiously, they make their way past the bellmen and through the lobbies, marching their armored bodies past the sandaled feet of the astonished tourists – crabs with their claws raised in the air, in ...
