From World Golf, a story that contains many elements of my idea of a perfect day. A beautiful round of golf in the morning, turf races and champions running in the afternoon, la vita bella!
SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. —Saratoga National Golf Clubsits just more than a mile east of the Saratoga Race Course on Union Ave.

The 40-day horse racing series in late summer until Labor Day attracts fans from all over the region. The track ranks as New York's oldest, dating to 1864. Races usually take place in the afternoon, making mornings ripe for 18 holes of nearby golf — and the most upscale public option is Saratoga National.
