1. Make a Destination List

If you’re planning a golfing getaway either as a solo trip or taking your family and friends along for the fun, don’t swing and miss. It’s important to do some advance planning first. These 5 tips will help you plan well, for a great golfing vacation.

Don’t just grab the first golfing vacation package you see. Research the courses you’d like to play the most and draw up a list of about 10 different possible destinations. Also, consider if a certain golfing destination has multiple courses you’d like to play, giving you more variety for your money. If you’re taking others along for the trip, ask for their input too. They might know about destinations that you haven’t thought of.

4. Ask About Short-Term Golf Club Memberships

You don’t always have to live in a city to get a golf club membership. Some clubs offer weekly or monthly membership passes that are available to anyone who wants them. If you are a serious golfer, getting a membership pass during your vacation can give you extra perks that you can’t get otherwise.

5. Book Off Season

Booking your golfing getaway in the off season can save you a bundle. Remember, warmer destinations generally have good weather all year round. No matter which time of year you book your vacation, you should still have a fantastic trip. If you book your golf excursion through a travel agent during the off season, you might be able to save even more, as agents are often desperate to fill these less popular seasons.

So, don’t just leave your plans to chance! Follow the tips above, and with a little diligent planning, you can create the perfect golfing getaway that will suit you to a tee.

By K. Ong

A picturesque tropical beach as a winter getaway makes for a smart vacation idea. Imagine frolicking in one of the world’s most spectacular warm-climate beaches as you wait away the passing of the cold months.

Here are ten of the world’s great tropical beaches to consider as your holiday vacation destination.

Bamboo Island Beach, Thailand

(a.k.a Phi Phi Island/Ko Pee Pee)

Located in Southern Thailand and protected by cliffs of limestone that tame the waves, the fantastic Bamboo Island is a remote tropical paradise of white sand and shimmering turquoise-colored waters. It is near the bustling Maya Bay, where The Beach was filmed.

Eleuthera, Bahamas

Eleuthera is a narrow island in the Bahamas. It sports rolling beaches of pink sand and fabulously huge outcroppings of coral reefs. The beaches of Eleuthera are unspoiled as the island is not heavily inhabited by people.
