If theme parks and celebrity spotting isn’t your thing, you can let the family go off and do their thing whilst you make use of the many golfing opportunities available in California. If you are a serious golfer, however, perhaps you’d prefer to have a vacation where golfing is the main event rather than something you do to escape from the tourist crowds in the noisy attractions! California offers a wide variety of different types of backdrops for its golf enthusiasts, so make sure you check out what’s available before making your reservation!
For example, if you like the desert then you’ll love Palm Springs where there are many golfing vacations available. The Classic Club offers up a beautiful view of the desert, and you’ll have a great course to try your luck on. This 18 hole green has 7,305 yards to play in with 14 bridges and little lakes to work around. This is a desert area, however, and temperatures can soar during the day and drop at night so make sure you pack for both extremes!
If the desert isn’t your idea of a fun golfing vacation location, about the beach? Imagine waking up and hitting some balls in front of the ocean as the sun is just starting to rise. Monterey Courses has various packages available, and their golf course is 18 holes over 7,009 yards.
If you want to combine your love of golfing with a family vacation however, you could do worse than to base your location in Orange County which is close to Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm – and has a golf course where you can relax whilst the rest of the family enjoy the thrills and spills of the local attractions.
Once you’ve decided on where you want to spend your vacation, check with the local clubs in that area as to whether they hire out equipment, or if you need to take your own. If you don’t want to pack the equipment, this could be a final deciding factor in which of California’s many beautiful golf courses you decide to play on.
