The Canary Islands
The Canary Islands have always been popular with golfing enthusiasts, and it’s not hard to see why. As well as having several high-quality golf resorts that offer exceptional golf courses, you can also enjoy the breath-taking local scenery and the stunning beaches for when you crave a bit of downtime.
What’s more, you can even get yourself a golf passport that allows you to use any of the courses on the island. Ideal if you want to explore the island a little bit more.
If that’s not your idea of golfing heaven, then what is?
Alternatively, if you are on a budget, Tenerife offers a great golfing experience for a fraction of the cost.
If you fancy combining a bit of culture with your golfing vacation, then look no further than the delights of Morocco. You can choose between two popular regions for your golfing break, either Agadir or Marrakech, both of which offer their own unique golfing and vacation experiences.
Marrakech has more resorts, plus it is steeped in culture and local history. However, Agadir is a great option if you are on a family vacation and want to be close to a relaxing beach.
Arguably the best golfing resort in Marrakech is the 4* Riu Tikida Garden Hotel which offers the must-see American themed Palm Golf Marrakech course. However, if you choose Agadir, head straight for the Golf Club Le Soleil; you won’t be disappointed.
For luxury lovers, Dubai, the most popular golfing region in the Middle East, should be your go-to destination.
Even without the vast number of first-class golfing resorts, which have different environmental themes on each of its courses, the pure decadence of this city is not to be underestimated. From its private beaches to its famous shopping malls with all the top designer brands, you can’t help but fall in love with this opulent golfing destination.
Not always a country that was synonymous with high quality golfing resorts, Turkey has seen massive development in this area over recent years, resulting in it now becoming one of the best places to go for a combination of great golf and high-quality accommodation.
There are several 5-star hotels that offer sensational golfing facilities and will leave you with a vacation of a lifetime. Be sure to check out all the hotels in Belek which sits on the eastern coast of the country.
Turkey is the ideal option for those wanting to play some great golf and enjoy an all-inclusive, cost-effective vacation in the sun. All you need to do is grab your putter, pack your pants and don’t forget your sunscreen!
