Five simple steps to crafting your ideal golf vacation
It’s been on your bucket-list for an eternity, but there’s no reason why you can’t make that dream golfing vacation a reality. Besides, the sooner you start planning, the sooner you can make it a happen. If you don’t know where to start, we’ve put together five simple steps that cover all the aspects of arranging your own dream golf getaway.
Step 1: Do your research
Thanks to the digital age, there’s more information out there on golf courses and golf resorts than you can shake a nine iron at. Pick a destination or a specific course and use the internet to learn as much as you can about it. If you have a question that hasn’t been covered, don’t hesitate to pick up the phone or send an email to find out what you want to know. Making contact with a member of staff can reveal a wealth of inside information you may not have considered.
Step 2: Pick your travelling companions
Will you be travelling with a group of fellow golf fanatics, taking your family or planning a solo adventure? If you’re going with a group, consider a round number that can easily be divided by four. You should also delegate some duties and responsibilities so that one person doesn’t end up doing all the dirty work.
With the family in toe, you’ll need to think about activities and entertainment for those who don’t share your passion for golf. Many golf resorts have any number of alternative attractions to keep the family happy while you pursue your golf. Going it alone offers you even more freedom in how you spend your time. You don’t have to choose just one course. You can travel around and play several courses quite easily.
