Vote for your Country in the Battle of the Islands! Discount Golf Vacation Package Tips

Don't Gamble with Your Golf Vacation

By Evans Putman

 Travel Guide     

Spring is right around the corner and that means it is time to start planning your golf vacation. Before you and your golf buddies plan a trip to Myrtle Beach, Scottsdale, Las Vegas, Hilton Head or other great golf destinations, you need to be aware of one fact.

Many discount golf vacation packagers don't really care if you receive a first-class golf vacation. You heard me right. Not every discount or even non-discount golf vacation packages are up to par.

There is a lot of money to be made in the golf package market. In Myrtle Beach where you can toss a Titleist out of a moving car and almost always have it land on one of the one hundred plus fairways, golf package providers are almost as plentiful as attorneys.

You might think this competition would benefit the golfer. But unfortunately, like any other opportunity, this can bring out scam artists and companies with bad business practices.

So if you and your golfing group want to enjoy your golf trip and know that you will be playing great golf courses, here are a couple of tips to make sure you get what you pay for on your next golf vacation.

1 - Watch out for one-size-fits-all discount golf vacation packages with rock-bottom prices unless you are will to play sub-par golf courses and stay in one-star accommodations. A golf package that promises a three-night stay with two rounds of golf for $129 will usually equate to a rock-bottom golf vacation experience. Don't settle for cookie-cutter deals. Make sure to customize a golf package that fits your group's needs.

2 - Make sure the company you buy your golf package from knows the local golf scene and better yet, lives and plays golf in the area. Many golf packages are sold through phone bank fulfillment centers where the operators rely on outdated information and know little or nothing about yearly maintenance schedules. Getting tee times at a lower-rung course is bad enough. Don't compound the problem with horrible course conditions.

Don't gamble with your next golf vacation package. The best advice I can give you is to ask questions and request testimonials from past customers. If the discount golf vacation package provider is unwilling to work with you, then don't play golf with them.
