The “Hip to Be Square” singer chooses a trio of dream vacations for club kids of all ages.
Augusta National Golf Club, Augusta, Ga.
If the 64-year-old Lewis (handicap: 8.3) could enjoy one last round, he says he’d take another crack at a course he’s played before: the home of the Masters Golf Tournament. “I played Augusta on the Monday after the  Masters,” he says of his most recent game. “I birdied hole No. 12, Golden Bell. All the holes there are named after trees.”
Where To Stay: The charming Partridge Inn, located in the historic district of Summerville (2110 Walton Way).
Where To Eat: The farm-to-table Frog Hollow Tavern (1282 Broad St.) is Augusta’s best fine-dining establishment and one of the hardest reservations to snag during Masters week.

Royal County Down Golf Club, Northern Ireland
“It’s one of [pro golfer] Rory McIlroy’s home courses,” says Lewis. “I’ve never played there, but I’ve heard it’s fabulous.”
Where To Stay: While local bed-and-breakfasts offer quaint options, the Slieve Donard Resort & Spa gives guests unbeatable proximity to the course and a Victorian atmosphere (Downs Road, Newcastle, County Down).
Where To Eat: Royal County Down’s own eatery, Murlough Bar and Dining Room. With views of the 18th green, 10th tee and Mountains of Mourne — the inspiration for C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia — there’s no point in heading anywhere else (36 Golf Links Road, Newcastle).

Leopard Creek Country Golf, South Africa
“I’d like to go to South Africa and play Leopard Creek,” says Lewis of the Malelane course, which borders game reserve Kruger National Park — making crocodile, hippo, antelope and elephant sightings common. “I hear it’s just unbelievable.”
Where To Stay: The private course has limited lodge booking, in locations named Buhala, Savanna and Jock Safari Lodge. Just beware: Some of the accommodations can be up to three hours away from the course.
Where To Eat: When not dining at the lodges, guests gravitate to Hamilton’s, an upscale eatery next to Leopard Creek serving modern South African cuisine (Malelane, 1320, Mpumalanga).
