Don’t get caught staring out your office window, daydreaming of the air on your face as you drive your cart towards hole 18. Instead, make it a reality by booking a golf vacation abroad. The grass is getting greener and it won’t be long before the sound of “FOUR” fills the air. While images of lush green fairways dancing in your head can be distracting, there are a number of factors that golfers must take into account when planning their trip. After all, preparing accordingly can provide the groundwork for an irreplaceable holiday. To help you get ready for the trip of a lifetime, we’ve created a how to prepare for a golf vacation check-list!
Hit The Driving Range
If you’re traveling abroad to golf, you’ll want to make the most of the world-class courses you’ll undoubtedly be visiting. Don’t show up rusty. Practice your game well in advance of arriving. You don’t want to show up to the course looking for a swing. Hit a driving range near home to work out any kinks in your game. A lesson never hurts either.
Research The Courses
As a golf player, you’ll want to know if the course is hilly or flat and has sand traps, lakes, or ponds. By knowing this information, you can arrive ready to take on the challenges that lie ahead.
Know Your Tee Times
Prior to departure, it is beneficial to make sure all arrangements have been made. At Whistler Reservations, we can offer you the chance to choose your own tee-time. What’s more, once you’ve received your booking confirmation, your tee times are guaranteed, you just show up!
It’s easy to remember the obvious things to pack such as a passport and clubs, but you’ll need to pay special attention to the things that might otherwise go unaccounted for: extra golf balls, a raincoat, and sunscreen. It’s also a great idea to make sure you have apparel for the clubs dress code.
Clean Your Clubs
Trust us, you’ll want to pull out shiny and well-maintained clubs once you get to the course. This may mean giving extra attention to your equipment in the days preceding travel. A well-maintained set will enable you to perform your best.
What better way to relieve some of that stress built up in the daily grind of office labor than to get outside and play some golf? Book your Whistler golf vacation today!
