A golfing holiday really is what you make it. Before you book you have to consider some matters.
Is this going to be a ‘family’ holiday which essentially entails your family sitting around waiting for you to finish on the course so that they can go on an increasingly annoying sight-seeing journey?
Or could it be the perfect mix of scenery, sight-seeing and a few relaxing rounds of golf?
Most people, when thinking of a holiday to take them to glistening sands, aren’t thinking of a hazard just off the 13th green which will take a sand wedge and a lot of patience to escape.
Deciding on the right golf holidays really requires you to think about who is going to be going on the holiday. If it is just you and a few equally golf-mad friends, then all that matters is that you all approve of the course, the clubhouse and the nightlife.
If you are bringing your family then they either need to love golf as much as you do or the location needs to be somewhere close to things that they can enjoy.
For many people, Dubai is a popular golf holiday location because there are some wonderful golf courses within a very short drive of the enthralling city center.
Hitting the course and leaving your family to decide what they’ll do to pass the next few hours is kind of mean-spirited.
If you want to have the perfect golf holiday, you’ll plan with everyone in mind and make sure that while you have the chance to play a wonderful course, you don’t come home to find that you have a hole in one of your best jackets.
