Golf Resort Vacation Packages

So you have been playing golf all summer with your buddies either playing at your country club and all the other local golf courses in your area and you are looking for a change. Especially if you live in the north or northeast part of the country where the weather is going to start getting colder.

Maybe it might be time for you to start thinking about planning a little golf vacation with your golf partners to a nice warm climate to get away and have some fun golfing. since,the emergence of Tiger Woods on the golf scene nearly twenty years ago golf is on a huge upswing.

More and more golf courses are being designed and built all over the world. To date there are over one hundred thousand golf courses all around the world with more being built every day.

Planning a Golf Vacation

With this huge emergence of golf courses and golf resorts it is an optimum time to plan your golf resort vacation package. There is more competition now than there ever has been, golf resorts are just begging for you to come to their golf resort for your golf resort vacation package. It is a premium time to plan your golf trip.

Most golf resorts want to accommodate you with a great golf vacation experience for everyone, whether you are an experienced golfer or a weekend duffer but some maybe some resorts not so much.

This where you have to do your due diligence and do as much research you can on any resort that you plan to vacation at. There are many things to take into consideration when planning your trip. Does the resort:

  1. Have the amenities you are looking for, pool, spa, etc.
  2. Are golf fees and cart included
  3. How many rounds of golf are included
  4. If the resort does not have an on site golf course do they offer transportation to and from the courses
  5. Do they offer a continental breakfast every day you are there.
  6. Are any dinners included

Another thing you will need before booking your trip is how many of you are actually going on your trip. Most of the time golf is played in foursomes, so planning your trip should consist of four or eight players. I think eight is perfect for an enjoyable golf adventure.

And one more thing is to be sure you book your trip well in advance of when you would like to travel. The reason for this is you can get the best tee times available on any given course thus giving you the rest of the day to enjoy the other amenities that the resort offers.

The Best Discount golf Vacations

Most of the best discount golf packages will normally include air fare along with ground transportation from the airport to the resort you are staying at. Make sure they offer the best services you can get. Just because you are getting a cheap deal on your vacation package does not mean that you have to stay at a cheap hotel.

Even though discounted, you should receive many freebies, including full service concierge, green fees, cart and or a caddie, transportation, group outings or tours, so once again do your research on what is available for the best golf resort vacation package.

Are You Bringing Your Own Golf Clubs?

I would think that most golfers whether you are a beginner novice golfer or an experienced golfer I’m sure you would want to have your own golf clubs, otherwise you will have to take your chances with rental golf clubs from the resort that may not be up to your standards or be just be inappropriate for you. Not having your own clubs could put a damper on your entire golf vacation adventure.

If you are planning to bring your own clubs on your golf trip there are some things you will have to take into consideration in doing so. For one thing you will not be able to take your clubs on the airplane with you so you will need a golf travel bag.

The last thing you need to happen is to have your clubs ruined by airport luggage handlers, you know have they throw luggage around, so be sure you get a good one. A good golf travel bag will accommodate your golf clubs, your golf shoes and a few dozen golf balls.

A Golf Family Vacation

With the popularity of golf in general and especially the success of the LPGA, the ladies professional golf association golf has become just as popular with women as well. With organizations like The First Tee, more and more children are now learning the game of golf as well.

This leads to a perfect scenario for the entire family to plan a golf resort vacation package. Resorts also know how lucrative this can be for their resorts business. Many golf resorts are actually taking huge steps to make the family golf vacation as enjoyable as possible.

Many are offering free golf lessons for children as well. Even besides golf most resorts have many other amenities catering to the whole family. In other words the entire family can enjoy a golf resort vacation package.

  1. Yes, Robert very good article and some really good information on a golf vacation. I don’t do any golfing I’ve hit a few putts on the golf course but never really played any. I would enjoy just going on a golf vacation and learn how to play that would be fun. It could get quite expensive if you don’t do your homework on scheduling a golf vacation. Don’t you think?

    1. yes, the main thing about planning your golf vacation is doing your research on the best deals out there. I mention this numerous times in my article.
      thanks for your comment

  2. Thank you for all this information! I’ve worked many hotel jobs which owned their own amenities as well as golf courses and even at private golf courses / country clubs in the kitchen but never have I honestly cared to learn much about their golf packages because I was always too busy working and living my life! I never really got into golf but I always see people and how they are always just having a great time and it seems relaxing!
    This article really makes me want to take a golf vacation just to go learn it and maybe even enjoy!
    Thank you for sharing this Robert!
    Looking forward to more from you!

    1. yea, thanks for your comments, there is nothing like a nice relaxing golf vacation, you don’t even have to be that good to have a great time, besides golf there are plenty other things to do at these resorts
      thanks again

  3. I think taking my own golf clubs will be the better option since I know the feel of my own, I’ve put many hours into them and know how to swing them. It just has that “feel” rented golf clubs can’t offer so I will ALWAYS have my own with me. Thanks for the great help!

    1. yes, i feel the same way, i would not go anywhere without my own golf clubs. I have an awesome golf travel bag to go with me, thanks for the comment and good golf to you

  4. My other half doesn’t play so trying to talk him into going on a golf vacation has so far been impossible. I continue to dream lol. Been trying to tell him they are resorts so he can go off and do something else.

    It would be just me playing through, and I do wonder if maybe other single golfers might be able to get together for a round or two. Anyway great read and has got me to thinking about a holiday soon.

    1. resorts can always hook you up with someone that needs to fill a foursome, and yes, there are plenty of other things to at resorts, not just golf, thanks for the comment
