It's that time of the year when people are starting to think about going away. A luxury cruise around the Mediterranean, a week at the beach in the South of France or a snorkeling holiday in the Caribbean. All of these sound great to the average person but enthusiasts are anything but average. The only type of trip that they will consider is a golfing one. Whether that is golf buddy trips or a golfing trip that includes the whole family, hackers are right now looking at their calendars and searching online for cheap golf trip deals.
It is important to remember, of course, with a golf trip planner you can customize golf trip packages depending on your needs. Here are some of the elements of the holiday that you can customize:
The best golf trip destinations are located (in our opinion) in the South of Europe. The Mediterranean climate is many people's favorite - not too hot or humid and over 300 days of sunshine a year. While Spain does have its merits and there are plenty of excellent courses to be found in the Andalucía region of Spain (Valderram in San Roque is excellent) we believe that the Algarve should be where you begin your search online for the best golf trip ideas. The South of Portugal is the ideal location for spring golf trips due to the weather, the quantity and quality of courses available and the discount prices available on last minute deals.
Now that you've stuck a dart in the map and decided where you are going, now you need to go through the rest of your golf trip ideas. You have to consider factors such as if the other people in your group like to play the great game. If they would rather relax at the pool, get a deep-tissue massage at a spa or play tennis rather than join you for 18 holes, you need to consider staying a resort that offers plenty of extra-curricular activities. Also, take into account your ability to get round the course. Don't go by your best shots and your best round, consider your average round and your handicap when choosing which courses you will play. It is no fun to spend six hours playing 18 holes because you have been losing balls in lakes and long rough all day. Choose a course that is challenging but will allow you to enjoy your game with your friends and family.
Booking and organizing inexpensive golf trips have never been easier. Here a dedicated website where you can choose from a whole menu of options and create custom all inclusive golf getaways. If you "front load" the work and the organization of your buddy golf trips, you can enjoy a stress free break where you can focus on perfecting your putting stroke with nothing else occupying your mind. Imagine if everything were taken care of, all the accommodation, the transport to and from the airport, the tee-times at top courses all booked. All you have to do is turn up and try to get the lowest score you can.
