Golf Holidays

Whether you take the game seriously and play when you can, or just enjoy 18 holes every Sunday, a golf break is an affordable and practical way to get in as much golf as possible on your next holiday.

What Is a Golf Break?

A golf break is rather like a package holiday, and includes your accommodation, any flights and airport transfers, meals and other extras. But of course, it's the golf that is the appeal and golf break packages include extras such as golf instruction, an assigned tee time, and allow you to customize your break as you want. A golf break can be the ideal holiday for anyone who loves the game, regardless of playing ability; it's also a great opportunity to meet other golfers and ensure that you have a pre-booked tee time and a playing partner who won't let you down.

The Appeal of Golf Breaks

Just like any package holiday, one of the big advantages of a golf break is to have everything taken care of for you, without having to book the trip components separately. Booking a package is also nearly always less expensive than booking everything separately. And for avid golfers, a golf package allows you to play on courses that would otherwise be off limits, either because of the cost to play or the difficulty of getting a tee time. With golf breaks scotland and its many world renowned courses are available to play, as well as top courses elsewhere.

Where To Go On a Golf Break

When it comes to golf breaks Scotland is the most popular destination, and of course the appeal is the many world famous courses, including Muirfield, Troon and Carnoustie. Other areas of the UK are also popular for golf breaks, especially Ireland with its many championship courses, and the Lancashire coast, home to Royal Birkdale and Royal Lytham courses. Spain has become one of the most popular golfing destinations in the world, and attracts golfers looking for a short break, and the chance to play some challenging courses in perfect weather. However, golf breaks aren't limited to the UK and Europe; breaks to the US are also popular, and in fact there are companies that offer golfing breaks to just about anywhere in the world.

When to Take a Golfing Break

If you are looking for golf breaks, and travelling with a family member who doesn't golf, you should look at the other amenities and things to do offered by the hotel or resort, as well as what the surrounding area has to offer. Like other types of package, golfing breaks tend to cost more at peak travel time, which is usually the summer. For most golfers the weather is a factor too; you may not want to be playing golf in Scotland in the winter. However, Spain and Portugal offer consistently good weather year round, and winter golf breaks are popular in both countries. Look for off season specials and deals, and like booking any other holiday, it pays to shop around.
