Golf Vacation Packages

Travel   

Most golfers play at their favorite local course most of the time and branch out to others in the area once in a while. This is often due to a friend living near that course or simply the need for a change of scenery. While it’s nice to play a different course in the area once in a while, you’re still going to be having a similar golf experience because you’re still playing in the same region. The only way to truly broaden your golf experience is to travel. Luckily, there are some great golf vacation packages available. They can usually be found by doing some research, but some of the best offers are already listed for you below.

I’m Looking for a Great Golf Vacation Package on the East Coast. What Is The Best Option Available?

It would be difficult to determine what the best option available is. A lot of that has to do with the individual and it depends on what types of hotels and/or resorts you prefer, what type of terrain you like to play and visit, how much you want to spend, etc. That said, there is one option that seems to be popular among all classes and types of player. Based on the price, it can also be considered a discount golf vacation package.

This popular option is The Homestead Mountain Resort in Virginia. Not only do they offer some form of golf vacation package year round, but they also offer an unlimited golf summer special, which will be the focus here.

The Homestead offers three championship level golf courses, giving you an opportunity to fine tune your game on some of the most beautiful courses on the east coast. A great aspect about this resort, which most discount golf vacation packages can’t offer, is that they also have a kids’ club, horseback riding, swimming, fly fishing, and canoeing. Just going for a walk on the grounds of this fresh air resort is rewarding.

The resort itself is an old, classic style. The golf courses are traditional yet up with the times in every necessary manner. If you enjoy lush grounds, being surrounded by mountains and crisp country air, this a good option for you.

Their unlimited golf summer special usually sells for $99, although it’s always possible they will change the price from year to year, depending on economic conditions. The summer special is based on double occupancy and is per night. It doesn’t include taxes or the 15% daily resort charge. It would probably be better if they wrapped everything in one price and bumped up their price a little bit. This would avoid any confusion and let people knew exactly what they were getting, but it’s still a very good deal.

With the package you will receive unlimited golf on the three championship courses, classic room accommodations, unlimited use of the driving range, and advanced tee time reservations. While all the courses are beautiful, Cascades is the best option.

I’m Looking for a Golf Package Vacation on the West Coast. What Is The Best Option Available?

As stated earlier, the best option isn’t the same for everyone, but if you’re looking for a solid solution then it’s highly recommended that you check out the La Costa Unlimited Golf Package in Carlsbad, California.

If you’re into a classy style, palm trees, and playing at two PGA Championship 18 hole golf courses, then this is the way to go. The room rate is priced at $170 per night, which is for every day of the week. The golf costs $100 per round and allows unlimited replays. You also receive a complimentary breakfast for two. The prices don’t include taxes or daily resort charges.

These traditional courses are very challenging yet are playable for anyone since there are four different sets of tees. This is a great option for the passionate golfer who likes to travel in style.

I’m Looking for a Golf Vacation Package in Arizona. Do You Know Of Any?

Yes. There are tons of golfing options in Arizona; however, if the entire state is an option for you then you should seriously consider the Westin Kierland Resort & Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona.

They offer a unique package in that if you stay for four nights you will receive two rounds of golf. While the price is expensive, ranging anywhere from $366 to $722 depending on the season, their golf course does resemble a desert oasis and offers some amazing views. The playability of the course is also well above average.

This package is based on double occupancy, and unlike the other golf packages on this list, the price includes taxes, resort fees, and golf carts. The Westin also offers a satisfaction guarantee. If you are not satisfied with your stay and/or golfing experience, they will offer a free round of golf. The resort’s primary focus is on service. They also like to stress that there will never be any hidden charges.

I’m Looking for a Golf Vacation Package in the South. Do You Know Of Any?

One of the best areas to golf in the south is Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Not only do you get a plethora of options for golf, but you’re right by the beach in case you want to take a day off.

A popular golf vacation package in Myrtle Beach is the Legend’s Resort Villas Golf Package. This won’t be as upscale of an option as the others previously listed, but if that’s not a concern to you and you just want to play a lot of golf, then it is for you.

While staying at the villas you will be in close proximity to the driving range, restaurants and various forms of shopping. For every night you stay you receive a round of golf. Prices range from $110 to $177 per night, depending on the season. The price is based on four people staying in a two bedroom villa. There is a two night minimum.

The biggest selling point about this package is that you will have ten golf courses to choose from, which are Heathland Golf Club, Moorland Golf Club, Blackmoor Golf Club, Man ‘O’ War Golf Club, Wizard Golf Club, Sea Trail, Wild Wing, Parkland Golf Club, Oyster Bay Golf Club, and Heritage Golf Club.

This a good option for younger people looking for a combination of sun and golf or for a family looking to play a round or two of golf while also exploring Myrtle Beach attractions and entertainment. This is not a great option for the die hard golfer. The courses are solid, but the amenities are not up to par with many top of the line courses that can be found around the country.

Are There Any Other Good Golf Vacation Packages?

Of course, but to list them all would require a novel-length article. If you want to customize a vacation golf package and don’t want to do the majority of the work, you can always hire at concierge service. They will often find tee times, transportation, tournaments, or anything else that you’re looking for to fit your wants, needs and budget. Whatever you’re looking for, it’s out there.
