Golf Holidays

Putting the swing back into golf holidays

There’s never been a better time to be a golfer. Seriously.

Golf holidays are more and more available and more and more luxurious, wherever in the world you want to go – Africa to Asia, Canada to the Caribbean.

Whether golf is the only thing on the agenda, or you’re simply looking to dabble with a round or two, the choices are (pretty much) endless. First up, let’s talk variety:

There’s so much diversity when it comes to styles and types of courses on offer that you’ll be hard pressed not to find golf holiday deals that not only suit you, but blow you away. Want a course that’s part of your resort? Done. Plus, if you can tear yourself away from the hotel, there’s no need to limit yourself: most destinations have more than one course to try out, close by. Simply pick what you fancy and golf to your heart’s content.

Golf holiday destinations

It goes without saying that it’s not just about the course, which is why we’ve hand selected the best and most beautiful destinations for our golf package holidays. Many of the courses are set in spectacular natural reserves, blooming with flora and fauna, or beside the ocean with unforgettable views. Golf with a side of much-welcome cooling sea breeze – thank us later!

Most of our golf holidays offer much more than golf, making for the ideal getaway for travelling with companions, families and groups of all kinds. Take a break from the game to wander the local area and explore the nearby beaches, theme parks or cities. Rest assured that there will be no boredom in sight while you play, either!

At Doubletree Sonoma in the Napa Valley Wine Region, enjoy a game at either one of the two 18-hole PGA certified Championship golf courses nearby, and then end the day with a tasty, al-fresco dining experience at Bacchus, while you gaze out over the Sonoma Mountains. Take the kids with you to Grenadian by Rex Resorts in Grenada, Caribbean; they’ll love the dedicated kids’ club as much as you’ll love the 9-hole course, surrounded by lake, ocean and hillside views.

Great courses: check. Beautiful locations: check. It can’t get much better than that, can it? Ahem...

Luxury golf holidays

But, of course, no golf holiday would be complete without world-class club house service, and for that, our luxury golf holidays are truly the best of the best. From drink carts serving regular refreshments throughout your games to a comfortable spot to chill out with some drinks at the end of the day, we’ve got your every desire covered.

Every one of our all inclusive golf holidays is a cut above the rest. Choose from golf package holidays worldwide, from Goa, India to Palm Springs, USA. It’s luxury like you’ve never experienced it before.

If the Caribbean is your kind of golf holiday destination, The Cove Atlantis, Bahamas, close by to an 18-hole Championship golf course designed by Tom Weiskopf, is sure to be right up your street. As with all of our all inclusive golf holidays, the amenities are world class and the location unforgettable. For something totally different, Fairmont Chateau Whistler, Canada, is a fairytale-like mountain retreat with hot tubs and fine-dining aplenty.

We could go on and on about each and every one of our incredible golf holidays, but we’ll let the resorts do the talking themselves: peruse our unbeatable selection of golf package holidays, deals and hotels, and you’ll be teeing off beside the ocean before you know it!

 

Top Tips

  • The Drill

    The key to an enjoyable game is to get a prompt start. So it’s a good idea to arrive at the golf course at least 30 minutes before your scheduled tee time. That way, you can enjoy a smooth check-in and get to the bag drop to stow away your belongings. You might even have time to hit some balls on the range. Most courses have superb practice facilities, not to mention on-site shops where you can buy a fantastic range of merchandise. So there’s no excuse for not looking dapper on the course.

  • The Rough

    While we know you like a challenging game, the snakes and alligators haven’t been put in the rough on purpose, honest. In fact, the beauty of many US golf courses is they are home to an abundance of wildlife. And that includes a few sharp-toothed critters, which may call the golf course lakes and streams their home. So while you’re free to do a bit of bird watching, take care if you’re set on going into the rough to find that ProV. After all, the plan is to become Tiger Woods, not Bear Grylls.

  • Tees

    Most courses have at least 4 and sometimes 5 sets of tees. Check out the card or chat with the Pro staff before you decide to play off the tips – you will have a much better round.

  • Desert Golf

    You might not think you need that old 7 iron in the garden shed. But if you are heading out to play desert golf, it might be wise to dig it out. The desert is as hard as concrete, which could put a scratch or two on your most prized irons. Not to mention the prickly cacti, which could put a scratch on you.

  • After Your Round

    When you are done showing off your Rory McIlroy skills, staff will clean your clubs and set them up at the bag drop. So don’t forget to tip both the staff who leave your clubs gleaming, plus the clubhouse staff who serve you a refreshing drink after your round.
