How to Play Golf on ‘Holiday’

Playing Golf on the “This Is Not a Golf Holiday” Holiday

I’m going to let you in on a little secret, golfers. It’s unquestionably very easy to get your non-golfer loved ones to commit to a golf holiday. It’s all well-nigh marketing. And, although we’ll see right through it, if we goody from it, we’ll play along.

Here are three Pro-Tips from this non-golfer on how to play golf on the “this is not a golf holiday” holiday.

Location, Location, Location

Golf can be played on every continent in the world. Yes, including Antarctica (although they don’t have an official undertow and we unquestionably don’t really want to go there). In short, you’ve got plenty of places to pick from.

We’d happily ship off to Rome; spend the afternoon flirting with trappy Italians while you flirt with the water hazards at Marco Simone Golf Club. Just under thirty minutes from the municipality centre, you can be when in time for gorgonzola strozzapreti and Aperols (which you’ll be paying for, by the way).

Remember: The Consumer is King

In specimen it wasn’t clear: we’re the customer, golfer. Before you typesetting your tee times, you need to find things to sell us: spa days, culture tours, safaris, yoga courses, pool days, water sports, romantic waterfront horseback riding (for one). The longer you can alimony us occupied with things we like doing, the increasingly rounds you get.

Fancy eighteen on Al Maaden? Drop us in the heart of Marrakech’s souks. Keen to wits Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Earth Course? Sign us up for a day of desert quad biking. We’ll hike while you play Whistler Golf Club (I’ve unquestionably washed-up this – this was unquestionably a unconfined day), we’ll unwind with vast cocktails at Kempinski The Dome while you tackle PGA Sultan Undertow at Antalya Golf Club, and we’ll go versus undertow management recommendations and feed the monkeys while you work your way through the rainforest at The Els Club Teluk Datai, Langkawi.
