Travel & Play Abroad

Get the most from your experience

Golf travel offers the opportunity to experience new courses, cultures, and challenges. Whether you're planning a golf vacation or participating in a tournament abroad, there are several factors to consider for a successful and enjoyable experience.

  1. Planning a Golf Trip: When planning a golf holiday, research is key. Choose destinations and courses that align with your skill level and interests. Consider factors like climate, course difficulty, and local attractions. Booking tee times in advance and understanding local transportation options can also enhance your trip.

  2. Playing in Different Climates: Golfing in a new climate can require adjustments in your game. For example, playing in a humid environment might affect your grip and hydration needs, while playing in a windy coastal area might require different shot strategies. Prepare by researching the typical weather conditions and packing appropriate gear.

  3. Cultural Etiquette: Understanding and respecting the local golf etiquette and customs is important when playing abroad. This can include dress codes, tipping practices, and general behaviour on and off the course. A little research before your trip can go a long way in ensuring a respectful and enjoyable experience.

  4. Adapting to Different Course Styles: Different regions often feature distinct golf course styles, such as links, desert, or parkland courses. Each style presents unique challenges, from navigating undulating links fairways to dealing with the lush vegetation of parkland courses. Familiarize yourself with these styles and consider taking a practice round to adjust your strategy.

  5. Traveling with Golf Equipment: Traveling with golf clubs requires planning. Invest in a sturdy travel bag to protect your clubs and consider insurance for your equipment. Also, be aware of airline policies regarding golf equipment to avoid any surprises at the airport.

  6. Go with a PGA Professional: If the thought of planning your own holiday fills you with dread, consider a trip with Kat, who offers several golf trips abroad each year. With options for all abilities available. You can find all her latest holidays HERE.
