How to Plan the Best Golf Trips

The best weekend golf trips are planned in advance with all of the details ironed out. The little things can make a vacation extraordinary, and we are experts in providing the best golf experience. If it’s your first time on the golf course, we offer tips for first-time golfers that will help your golf game go smoother. To get started, here is where you should begin: 

  1. Invitations – The best golf trips are with friends. It can be a challenge to notify everyone and get their input for where you should go. When gathering your group, it’s recommended to keep the total headcount divisible by four. Many golf tour organizers believe the best group consists of eight people because it makes travel arrangements like tee times, accommodations, meals, and flights easy.You should begin planning your trip at least six months in advance and send an email with the main details to at least 20 people requesting a response from the first eight. Sending out bulk invitations will help you avoid hurt feelings and last-minute cancellations. It will eliminate the need to determine who stays and who goes.
  2. Organization – When you’ve managed to gather everyone interested in the trip, it’s helpful to divide the responsibilities of the trip amongst them. Since everyone may not agree on everything, setting ground rules and delegating responsibilities will keep the group on the same page. 
  3. Destination – Choosing the correct destination for the best weekend golf trips can be one of the biggest challenges. There are so many great destinations that choosing one golf trip in the USA may not be enough! For this first trip, there are a few well-known locations that never disappoint, including:

    • Scottsdale, Arizona
    • Myrtle Beach
    • Florida
    • Oregon
    • Alabama
    • Wisconsin

    Remember to consider the weather during your travels. You’d want to avoid a destination with rain, wind, or freezing temperatures that will make it impossible to enjoy golfing. Locations like Scottsdale with dry sunny weather, no rainouts, and a long list of spectacular courses is the safest choice.

  4. Courses – Choosing golf courses for your trip may seem easy at first. If you choose a destination like Scottsdale, Arizona, it could be challenging to select from the plethora of gorgeous golf courses that the area is known for. While it may be tempting to focus on checking the signature courses of your list, you can have a lot of fun at lesser-known golf clubs that are easily accessible and in line with your skill level. This will give everyone in the group an opportunity to play a successful round or two. 
  5. First-class – Once you’ve decided what courses you’ll play and ideal destinations, stick to your budget but splurge a little. As your first golf trip, it should be one of the best golf trips of your life. There are no other accommodations that provide the value we do for the price you’ll pay.

You won’t need to bring anything but your group.
    • Laundry – A hotel will have laundry facilities on the premises. Your luxury condo will have a washer and dryer inside the unit. You can wash and dry your own clothes from the comfort of your condo. All units come with free detergent, ironing boards, and irons. 
    • Bedrooms – Most of our luxury condo units come with walk-in closets and custom bed types. You’ll be able to sleep on a hotel-style bed while watching a 40 inch flat-screen TV with a DVD player when you’re not golfing. 
    • Bathrooms All bathrooms are equipped with towels, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, and hair dryers.
    • Living rooms – You can lounge in your luxury condo living room with sofas, recliners, and loveseats, depending on the room you choose.

  6. Plan – Booking your golf experiences in advance is an excellent way to ensure your slots are reserved during the busier seasons. If you choose an unlimited stay and play package, you won’t have to worry about booking in advance.
