Golfing Holiday Destinations.
Golf is a sport that has grown in popularity and is now played, both professionally and recreationally, in virtually every country in the world. Golf is a game that has evolved from its crude origins in the 15th century to being a highly tactical sport enjoyed by people of every age, sex and race and in some countries is even regarded as a national pastime.
With hundreds of golf courses to be found across the globe, golfing holidays in Europe, America and South Africa have become popular with enthusiasts of the game eager to experience playing a round in an entirely different location to their usual local golf course. Europe is stuffed full of golf courses in idyllic locations with a wide variety of clubs suited to all playing levels and abilities. From 9 holes to championship courses, whatever your golfing prowess may be, the perfect course is waiting to be discovered.
Holiday home accommodation has also increased in availability near to golf courses, so lovers of the sport can now book a self catering apartment, just a short walk away from the first hole, so no precious time is lost traveling to and from their nearest golf club.
Many self catering apartments, villas and farmhouses for holiday rental are in regions where there are abundant opportunities for sightseeing, shopping and sunbathing on the beach as well as golfing and other outdoor activities, so a golfing holiday in Spain, for instance, can appeal equally to someone with more relaxing ideas in mind.
Golfing holidays are usually considered only by those really serious about their game, but many holiday homes situated near to golf courses can also provide plenty of other facilities and activities that would appeal to everyone, so the whole family can enjoy a golfing holiday even if it’s only dad who enjoys golf.
Rent a holiday villa or apartment in Spain, The Balearics, The Canaries or Portugal and you can indulge in your favourite pastime in guaranteed sunshine, and then spend time relaxing on a sandy beach. Or maybe a holiday rental villa in South Africa near to a golf course would sound attractive as a vacation destination, with endless possibilities for the whole family, and a private pool to cool off in after a hard day on the fairways.
Equally, a golfing holiday in USA would let you experience not only typical American vibrancy and hospitality, but a top quality vacation condo near enough to a golf course to overdose on your favourite game in true American style.
Then there’s Scotland; some may say it’s the real home of golf, and with many different types of courses to try in fantastic scenic landscapes, you might never play a round of golf as memorable as one on a golfing holiday in Scotland.
One of the most famous destinations in the world, Bangkok will leave you feeling exhilarated. Bangkok is also architecturally inspiring, and offers a fascinating insight into Thailand’s rich culture presenting a unique setting to your Bangkok golfing holiday, and with over 60 golf courses to choose from in the city and surrounding areas there will never be a dull moment during your holiday.
Golfing holidays can now be taken anywhere and everywhere in the world. Think of it, teeing off with some of the worlds most spectacular scenery in the background. Not only that, but it’s possible to play golf at many other exciting courses all over the world, facing new golfing challenges every day. However, golfers can now plan golfing holidays which feature many other activities. Don’t get the idea that a golfing holiday is just for the skilled golfer, what could be better than to learn the wonderful game of golf while on a golfing holiday in relaxing and exotic surroundings?
