Escape The Snow And Golf

by | Jan 10, 2018 | Travel Featured

Snow can be dreadful when you get older, or at any age for that matter. There comes a time when you are ready to leave the snow and move south to some place much warmer! A lot of people wonder, what am I possibly going to do if I move away from my home. I don’t have any friends or family there and none of my belongings other than my suitcase. That’s minor stuff to worry about. Once you move to that place and live there for a certain amount of time it will start to feel like home- a different kind of home that you built somewhere else. You will also meet new people and partake in different activities that maybe are new to you or you have experienced before. One activity might be golf.

A lot of people once they retire or even go on holiday they golf. It is a fun interactive sport to do when you are somewhere south. Depending on your professional level, there are tons and tons of courses scattered out all over the world for every level of golfers. Today we are going to explore some of the best courses to golf down south. You can also learn the basics of golfing and how to drive a golf ball here before you head to the course.

  •  The Big Island of Hawaii is known for their superb golf courses scattered all across the island. The big island of Hawaii was once featured as the number one golf destination in the world. Heading south to Hawaii to golf for the winter is great because you can find accommodation for every budget as well as golf courses to meet every budget. If you are a golfer you will be aware of the costs associated with golfing, and some courses can charge a lot for a membership. I am sure you will find a couple courses you will love on the big island.
  • Puerto Rico is high up there on being one of the top golfing destinations in the world. Puerto Rico is home to many affordable golf resorts and with the beautiful weather all year around (except for the recent hurricane that was out of the blue) you will be happy to golf in the sunny and hot weather! If you were looking for a recommendation in Puerto Rico, I would highly recommend looking into the Hilton Ponce Golf and Casino Resort.
  • Pebble Beach California might be one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world. This golf course is shaped around the coastline… How amazing is that for a day of golf or a season of golfing? You cannot go wrong with heading to California for some hot weather.
  • Australia is another prime location for golfing. Depending on where you are traveling from- but Canadians and Americans and anyone who experiences snow in the winter months of November to April would enjoy Australia during those months because the seasons are opposite. During those months in Australia it is summer for them. If you are looking for a unique golf course in Australia, designed by a pro golfer- Des Soutar can take the credit for designing this course in 1925.
  • Dominican Republic has some amazing and tricky golf courses. One being Casa de Campo Resort. When you stay at this resort, you will also have access to one of the best beaches in all of Dominican Republic. The golf course located at this resort is referred to as “The Teeth of the Dog.” It is one of the best-rated golf courses in all of the Caribbean.
  • Let’s talk about Cape Kidnappers in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. You are set above on a cliff with breathtaking views of the bay and some of the most amazing views in the world for that matter. Why not enjoy two things at once- golf and picturesque views. If you choose to stay in one of the 22 guest suites you will have the same opportunity to look out the window and take it all the precious views from this resort.
  • You are probably wondering why you have not read about Arizona being on the list of best places to escape the winter and golf. Well here it is. The Ritz Carlton in Marana Arizona is the place you will want to check out. With 27 holes, you will be occupied for a little while. Not only does this resort offer some of the best golfing in America, it also offers 20 miles of hiking and biking trails to go with it. There you have it… you will not get bored here. There is something to do for everyone. There are many fantastic golf resorts scattered around Arizona. Another favorite is The Phoenician in Scottsdale, Arizona. This is a 27-hole course with stunning desert views.
  • The Ritz Carlton in Kapalua, Hawaii located on the island of Maui is another incredible course and area to spend a few months at. You will often see quite of few pro’s golfing at this course. It must be from the views and the constant sunny days that frequent the island of Maui. Maui is a great island to live on as well because of all the diverse activities for everyone. This resort also has one of the best spas in the world. What better way to relax after a full day of golf than hitting up the award-winning restaurant and ending your night off with the most amazing spa treatment you have ever had.
  • Last but not least the Bahamas. The Abacos Club is a great golf course for any level. You will notice the breeze from this course and you will feel comfortable each day with the weather. Bahamas sticks around the 70s and early 80s for weather, therefore the grass is always very green!  Between your golfing days you can enjoy easy access to the beach, the bays and the different coves located in Abacos. You can invite your friends and family over too because the resort offers rental properties for your visitors.
