Golfing Holidays


Golfing Holidays

If you have been working too hard for too long and just need to get away or traveling for pleasure and want to play some golf, you will want to check out golf holidays package vacations from your travel agent.

These travel arrangements are often referred to as "stay and play" plans because you stay at a certain hotel and receive rights to play at a certain golf course while you are there. When making these arrangements, make sure there are not special requirements that will make playing inconvenient or impossible for you. Some of these plans require you to limit your arrival dates and departure dates or have other unacceptable limits so read the fine print.

You can take golf holidays to all sorts of locations depending on your personality and desires. For instance, you can choose to golf in a course located near or in a major city, taking in museums or theatres when not golfing. Or you might choose to visit a golf course in an area of rugged natural beauty such as the mountains. While there, you might take a day to fish instead of golf.

Whatever your needs, you can find golf holidays packages to meet your needs.

Are you going to take your own golf clubs with you when you travel on golf holidays? You probably would prefer to use them rather than the clubs that can be rented at the course to which you are travelling. If you choose to take them with you, you will need to think about the arrangements a bit. For instance, do you have a really high quality golf club bag which will protect those expensive golf clubs. If not, you'd better get one. You won't be able to carry your clubs on if you are flying, so you'll need a traveling golf bag that can take airport luggage handling and still protect your clubs. So get a good one.

When picking a destination for golf holidays, pick the course you wish to play on first, and then find out about lodging at hotels, resorts, or stay and play package plans. Make sure the tee times that are set for you when choosing a stay and play package are going to work for you. People who are staying at a golf course's own resort generally get first serve when choosing tee times. If it's really important to you to get the tee time you desire, it may be worth it to you to stay at the resort instead of a less expensive hotel.

So in summary, while you travel, you will need some of the following:

-Invest in a reinforced traveling golf bag. They’re slightly
higher in price, but since this is a one-time investment,
go ahead and splurge a bit. The metal covered bags
will keep your clubs safe while traveling. Have you
seen how the airlines and porters handle your luggage?

-As with all your other traveling stuff, make a list of
each and every thing in your golf bag (make and model),
including the bag itself. If things get misplaced in transit,
you may get lucky and get some of your stuff back.

- Foldable golf clubs suck, but hey, they’re still better
than having no golf clubs at all. Arrange them logically
in a golf bag so when you need them you can find them.
Take a few basic ones along with you, there’s no need to
take the full set with you.

- Use golf shippers like Luggage
Forward's door-to-door luggage shipping service is
easy, safe and guaranteed to arrive on time.

- Carry backup tees and balls in case you misplace
your regular set.

Have a great time!
