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.
If you need increasingly recommendations, just undeniability our Golf Travel Experts (0800 043 6644) and ask them what their non-golfer other-half would want to do.
They’ve been there, they’ve compromised, they’ve played it.
Timing is Everything
On the above, it’s crucial that you factor in time. Your non-golfer partner/friend/family member must be having at least 30 minutes increasingly fun than you, in whatever you set them up with for the day. It’s important that we finger we got the largest end of the deal.
Play eighteen, get when to the hotel, and make sure you squint like you’ve had a really, really terrible time without us.
