Across the U.S. and around the world you'll find golf resorts and hotels
with golf courses that offer 'stay & play' golf packages. And, in increasing
numbers, regular hotels are teaming up with area courses to offer discounted
'stay & play' packages also. Golf packages will save you money
with cheaper rates for 'a room plus greens fees' than you would pay if you
purchased these services separately. But some packages come with special
stipulations such as particular arrival/departure dates, quoted rates may be
per person or for two or more, etc., so check the details carefully.
Consider Your Group
Will your group be golfers only, golfers and non-golfers, family, or are you
a 'single' golfer? And what about skill levels? Where you go, where you stay,
and where you play can make a big difference as to whether your trip is a
'hole-in-one' or a 'bogey'.
What Type of Vacation?
No matter what kind of vacation you and your companion(s) want to take,
whether it's to a bustling city, rustic mountain area, busy beach resort, a town
steeped in colonial history, a quiet countryside or a combination of these, there
are numerous terrific golf destinations available and in all price ranges. If you'll
be accompanied by non-golfers, you'll want to make sure there are things for
them to do while you're on the course.
