Travelogue

You might know Albany only as the host of Tiger Woods’s Hero World Challenge, but its primary role is to serve as a luxurious oceanside getaway. Owned by billionaire Joe Lewis, along with Woods, Ernie Els and Justin Timberlake, the gated 600-acre community opened in 2010. Most of the residential properties at Albany — from the colonial-style ocean-front villas to the super-slick apartments that overlook a yacht-filled marina — are available for rent on a nightly basis, making it a swank destination for those in the know. Els designed the par-72, 7,400-yard course, which offers a balance of windswept dunes, desert features and water hazards. Surrounding the course is a 400-yard driving range, a pristine short-game practice area, and a fully-equipped swing performance center. Dining options range from casual and poolside to gourmet and high-end. Private beaches, two pools (one for kids and another for adults), an equestrian center, luxurious spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and art gallery cement Albany’s oasis status. Don’t be surprised if you spot a celeb in the gym or relaxing poolside — it’s that kind of place.
