Make sure the children are occupied whilst you are out on the fairway. This will depend on the age of your kids and you could have already dealt with this problem by leaving them at home with family. If you do choose to take the small ones with you, you would be advised to choose a resort with lots of kid friendly activities, such as footbal, kids clubs and archery.
Check the quality of the greens. When playing underneath superb sunshine, there is no better feeling than to walk on firm, well maintained putting surfaces – the contrast between the blue sky and green grass is magical. Always plan ahead and ask about the standard of the green keeper at your chosen hotel. And remember, to be considerate on the greens by fixing any marks left by your golf ball.
Make sure the fairways match your golfing style. You may be in for a tough few days if the fairways on your selected golf course are too narrow for your level meaning that you spend most of your days in the bushes, or out of bounds. On the other foot, if the courses available to you are open and simple to hit, you may find yourself ending your weekend feeling that you have not been tested enough. So ensure pick a course that suits your level of golf.
Make sure your companions and colleagues can play your chosen course. You may have the handicap of a professional but it might not be that way for everyone in your group. So remember to plan ahead and make sure there are no restrictions at the course you want to use that would ban anybody playing without experience.
Consider the climate. There are many possible destinations for your golf break, throughout Europe and also around the world, be careful to opt for the correct place at the correct time of year. Check the local climate for the time that you’d like to travel and pack your kit accordingly. Remember your sun hat for sunny European countries like Spain and Portugal. But on the other hand it is a must to take rain coats and an umberella for visits to the UK.
Ensure that there will be a selection of courses to play. If you are at your resort for more than a couple of days, you are bound to want to make several rounds of golf. By choosing a resort with only one course you’ll find your party getting tired of the same holes. By choosing a course with many courses will allow you the opportunity to test your golfing shots on a variety of holes.
