Book Your Best Golf Holiday - We all want to make the most of our relaxing holidays, so planning your next golfing holiday is an important task. However, like anything in life we always put it off until the last moment and therefore we will often lose out on the best deals.
Don’t take the risk of booking a bad holiday, use our guide below and make your next trip just that little bit easier. Also, our team of travel experts are on hand to answer any queries that you have.
Firstly, focus on what your group wants. It’s important to make sure your group has the best possible holiday, so here are some pointers to consider:
Write down your own budget, this is important as the holiday has to be something you are happy to pay and that you are comfortable with, and that colleagues and/or travelling companions are also happy to pay.
Don’t forget to include all elements of the holiday including flights, transfers, hotel, golf rounds and buggies!
This is the crucial part as the time of year you go impacts price, weather and the availability of your group.
If you are looking for the cheapest deals, then you might want to consider the shoulder season which for golf holidays in Europe is around February-March and November.
We have set out some good examples of destinations you can travel to and which time of year is best to visit:
Winter is a perfect time to travel to the Canary Islands. Our pick is Tenerife with a year-round temperature of 23 degrees centigrade it's the perfect destination. Our choice would be the Hotel Jardin Tropical.
Our choice for spring is a golf holiday in Algarve. The weather is perfect for golf (not too hot) and you have a number of courses to choose from within the close range.
Do not leave it too late to get the best deals. Booking now for your Spring golf holiday next year might seem a bit early to be planning your next golf holiday. However, do consider that most groups do plan early in order to secure the best tee times and rooms for their group.
Plus, you have the added benefit that most of our resorts have early booker discounts that you can take advantage of. Generally, these save your group between 5%-15% off the original holiday price. Book early for the best deals!
Top tip - Book your flights early to avoid stress & take advantage of the best deals
Organising a golf break in a great location doesn’t need to cost the earth. If you work through what is important to you, then our experienced team can advise what resort will work best for your group within a given budget.
Things to consider for your group:
No one wants to hack around a 6-hour round! So make sure you select the courses you play carefully. We can recommend which course suit which ability of golfer. We understand if you want to be challenged by the course, but do recognise that beginners may find some of the course too tough. There’s no need to worry as we have plenty of courses for golfers of all abilities.
