Whether you are looking for a short getaway, to tick off a lifetime dream experience or explore new destinations, there are no shortages of beautiful golf courses around the world for you to enjoy. Fun and exciting trips just waiting for you to create lifelong memories – for yourself, with family and friends.
You can certainly plan these on your own, but why not make the entire process stress-free and enjoyable? It is after all your vacation too. Following are three golf vacations your professional travel advisor (me!) can help you with so everyone has an experience of a lifetime.
Cruises and golf? A perfect combo. The convenience of a floating hotel – unpack and pack once, a new destination every day, gourmet dining – combined with the opportunity to play multiple golf courses with pre-arranged tee times and sightseeing along the way. Cruises are perfect for non-golfers too, with plenty of activities available while others are on the golf course.
Ocean Cruises: Golf cruises are available world-wide. Imagine yourself playing at top courses in New Zealand, Australia, the iconic British Isles and Ireland, the Baltics, Spain, Portugal, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, South America and even South Africa. Golf, wine and safari…. Wow! New itineraries come out every year.
River Cruises: River cruises have been adding a variety of active experiences over the years, and hitting the links has really taken off. Golfers can play top courses in Germany, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria and the Czech Republic, and there is no shortage of sites to explore for non-golfing travel partners.
Barge Cruises: Intimate luxury hotel barges with gourmet dining and fine wines, are available in France, Ireland, England and Scotland. Perfect for small groups of 8 looking for exclusive experiences.
Pre-arranged fixed itineraries are perfect for singles, couples or small groups of friends to join other like-minded travelers. Tours combine golf with sightseeing and other exceptional experiences in some of the most amazing places in the world.
Attending the Open and playing iconic courses (the Old Course, Royal Troon, Gleneagles), attending the Ryder Cup or Solheim Cups are big dreams for many, but it doesn’t stop there. Exploring Patagonia and Argentina, Capetown and winelands, Bordeaux and Bermuda are just a few other destinations with excellent golfing. All done for you. Easy.
100% custom designed – golf, lodging, dates, transportation, sightseeing – in top golf destinations. Portugal, Spain, Italy, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, US. Perfect for a group of two to a hundred plus when you want something 100% exclusively designed for you.
This is ideal for a small group of friends (6-8 is best) who have always dreamed of playing a bucket list destination. A great example: Playing the Old Course in Scotland, combined this with 2-3 other courses (Kingsbarn, New Course), sightseeing on non-playing days and a private driver for the entire week. Best of all - not everyone has to play, play every day or every course. The trip is fully customized exactly to your liking. If travel partners don't play, no problem. Plenty of non-golf activities, from sight seeing to shopping, spa/relaxation days. Perfect just for you!
