I absolutely love going on vacation, no matter where I go. That said, what makes the best vacation in my mind, is having an activity or destination to look forward to. For example, I personally love vacations that keep me active, like going somewhere to hike to an amazing view, or visiting somewhere so that you can travel to nearby ancient ruins. A vacation can really have any theme from vineyard tour to snorkeling trip, it just depends what kind of thing you are into. It can be difficult to decide when there are so many options out there, but one of the most popular vacations really is a golf getaway. There are so many different amazing courses to choose from. You will have to decide what part of the world you prefer to spend your time in, but chances are wherever you want to go, there is a great golf course nearby. Often times you can even stay on the golf course grounds. It is up to you whether you want to make the vacation all about golf, or go on vacation and make golf a bonus to the getaway. Either way, there are a few things you will not want to forget.
This is a big one, especially if you do not usually spend that much time in the sun. Additionally, it is possible that you are traveling to a destination where it is hotter and sunnier than where you normally live. Takes these things into consideration and bring whatever you feel is necessary. Sunscreen would be a great place to start, but you also might want to consider bringing a hat, sunglasses, or even a shirt that has UV ray blocking material. You can find these online or at local retailers. They tend to be lightweight and breathable since they are intended to be worn in the sun.
The Appropriate Attire
Make sure that you take a moment to go online or call the club that you plan on playing golf at to double check what their dress code is. Some places can be stricter than others and it would be so unfortunate to arrive at the golf course and find out that you did not even pack any clothes that would be appropriate for their standards. You can play it safe and go to J.Crew before your trip to get yourself a few new outfits for golf and going out.
Your Golf Clubs
Some people make the mistake of not bringing their own clubs with them because they think it will be a waste or too heavy to carry. Many people do not actually realize how easy it is to bring a set of golf clubs with you when you travel. It will likely be more expensive to rent all the clubs you need, and they will not feel like your own. There is something special and unique about the way you have worn the handle down after many games and a lot of use. It is generally better to have the set of clubs you are comfortable with on vacation versus renting unfamiliar ones.…
