Golf Vacation For The Family

By: Peter Bishop

A golf vacation is a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the gentle slopes of a perfectly landscaped golf course. From the islands of Hawaii to the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, there is a destination not far from every golfer.

The typical accommodations for a golf vacation would be located on the country club grounds. Rentals from condominiums to homes are available at most areas. Each course generally offers gated entrance, well-maintained acreage and plenty of amenities for the entire family. While Dad is out swinging the clubs, Mom and the kids can be enjoying a swim in the pool or a nice relaxing day of nothing but nature.

Picturesque in their appearance, golf courses are the setting for many competitions throughout the year. Some are televised while others are private tournaments for local players. A golf vacation is a terrific way for the golfer, alone, to enjoy some time on the green or a family destination, as well.

When planning a trip, always make sure to confirm reservations ahead of time. Because of their popularity, golf resorts often book up fast. It is a good idea to call ahead at least 6 months in advance of your trip in order to reserve a room and a golf package. Everything from training sessions to professional tournaments can be found all throughout the United States.

If possible, surf the internet and call the local tourism center for the area that you wish to visit. Ask for brochures, visit websites and flip through travel and hotel guides. Each of these will give you an idea of the surrounding area, fun things to do, places to dine and things to see. Most golf resorts have a website, which will give you a very good indication on the various price packages, exterior and interior views of the accommodations and overall photos of the golf course itself.

If you are giving a golf vacation as a gift, there is no better way to surprise someone than with an unexpected getaway. Surprise your friend or loved one with a single golf ball, which you place in a small box and wrap it beautifully. Make sure that you are present with the gift is opened, or it will lose its luster. As the recipient opens the box, he/she will be stunned by the sight of a single golf ball. While wanting to seem grateful, the giftee does not quite understand the purpose. With a smile, you reply, I thought you could use this on your golf vacation; and hand him/her the envelope with their travel arrangements. This is just one way to make a surprise gift a real stunner, but you can think of your own creative way to surprise that special person with the vacation of a lifetime.

If you are planning the vacation as a family, there is not any need for a surprise. Instead, you will enjoy the fun of putting your heads together to plan out the perfect trip. There should be something for everyone in the family to enjoy, so choose an area that is plentiful with activities. If you like the ocean and he likes to golf, try Hawaii for the best of both worlds.
