It’s now time to think about your 2018 golf group trip with Quality Golf Destinations.

Are you a Golf group organizer and thinking of where and when you would like to go for your 2018 golf group trip. Well now is the best time to start planning, here are 5 good reasons to make your plans early

 

  1. Best choice of destinations

  2. Early booking discounts at many hotels

  3. Early booking gives you the golf tee times you want during peak times

  4. Book your flights early for the best prices and group rates

  5. Gives you time to plan your golf holiday with the experts

2017 Golf group trips - where will you be going

Where will you be going in 2018?

 

You would be amazed how many people think that Spring and Autumn are quiet months around Europe’s sunnier resorts. Although many hotels are quieter at these times the ones in the best locations can still be busy. It’s not only golfers who want to get away for early or late sunshine, it’s a very popular time for people not tied to the school holidays or for those people who want to get away but don’t want the high temperatures of the summer months.

Although places like the Costa Del Sol or Algarve seem to have golf courses at every turn in fact compared to the UK there are still relatively few. The whole of Spain’s Andalucía region stretching 450 miles along the cost from the Portuguese border in the west, across southern Spain’s Costa del Sol to Northern Almeria in the east has 97 golf clubs, that’s 2 less than golf clubs affiliated to the Cheshire Golf Union one of the UK’s smaller counties. Which is why in the prime golf season, when golfers from not only the UK but most of northern Europe converge to the southern resorts, tee times can be at a premium.

Golf in the Andalucía region is very popular so why not consider an alternative. The Costa Blanca (Alicante), Costa Daurada (South of Barcelona) or Costa Brava ( North of Barcelona) In these regions not so noted for their golf you can find some of Spain’s best courses (PGA Catalunya, El Prat, Lumine and Las Colinas to name a few). Even in the Andalucía region itself the Costa del luz region around Cadiz offers some excellent value for money options.

The same can be said for the Algarve, golf continues after Vilamoura and the Western Algarve has some great options. Palmares Golf Club being a 27 hole Robert Trent Jones Jnr gem while Penina Henry Cotton Championship, the original course on the Algarve still holds its own as one of the best 50 years after its opening. Portugal’s capital city of Lisbon is easy to fly to and also has a great selection of courses both north and south of the city, a great road network and a superb choice of accommodation, not to mention the year-round nightlife. Portugal’s oldest courses can be found around the City. Both Estoril and Lisbon Golf Club’s were formed in the 1920’s so will soon be celebrated their centenaries’. Combine this with great courses such as Oitavos Dunes, Praia del Rey and Penha Longa, all regular Portuguese Open venues and a host of local gems which are great value for money.

 

If you don’t want to travel so far then we can recommend many great trips nearer to home. Explore the links golf of North West Ireland, Open Courses in Scotland or England, or simply some great courses you may never have heard of but are well worth visiting.
