Why you should take a golf getaway

We know that playing an 18-hole round of golf can take around 4 hours. That can seem like a long time – maybe you’re feeling guilty about being away from family or responsibilities. But we’re here to tell you that a 4-hour round of golf can be so much more – it can be an entire golf getaway spending time getting to know new people, networking, spending time WITH your family, and experiencing a new city and scenery.

A golf getaway can transform one round into an entire experience. It’s about the adventure of getting to your destination, the local food and cuisine, and the people you might come across.

Whether it’s a single round of golf at a destination, like Golf Digest rank #13 Crystal Downs Country Club in Michigan (you can’t beat those fall colors!) or a trip to Texas to play some of the finest courses in the Dallas/Fort Worth area (along with enjoying some of the best TexMex), each “golf getaway” is filled with new and exciting experiences for you and the three others you want to spend time with.

Still not convincing you? Your golf trip can be for a good cause!

Many golf industry nonprofits host online auctions where you can bid on some of the best golf courses and packages in the world. The bonus is that sometimes your winning bid can serve as a tax deduction. Take the Youth on Course Online Auction, for example. Beginning November 10, you can bid on single top 100 & 200 golf courses, or take advantage of the packaged courses. But it doesn’t have to be all about golf. Mayacama Golf Club is located in one of the best wine regions in the country – Sonoma County. The Mayacama package is paired with a hotel stay in downtown Healdsburg and wine tastings for four. Your golf trip just became a family trip.

Stop wishing, start playing.
