Golf Holiday Top Tips


We know that booking a golf holiday can be a long process, particularly if you are in charge of a group.  Here are our top tips for making yours as stress free as possible.

Use a Bonded Golf Tour Operator

Despite the fact that we’d all prefer to be on the course than in the office, you don’t want to be stuck abroad when your boss is expecting you to be firmly behind your desk. GolfKings holidays are protected through our membership of ABTA, ATOL and IAGTO.

Get Expert Advice

Who would know better than the people that live and breathe golf?

Our experts are passionate about the game and understand how to tailor a golf holiday to suit your particular requirements. They have sampled many of the resorts, hotels and courses for themselves giving them a valuable insight into what you can expect from your holiday.

Let us know where and when you want to go, with how many people, and for how long – then let us take care of the rest.

Book Early!

It’s simply really.  It doesn’t matter if you’re up with the larks or enjoy a leisurely breakfast with the papers and a morning massage, the earlier you book, the more likely it is that you’ll get the tee times you’d prefer.

Bring Your Own Clubs… Or Not.

Of course you can take your own clubs but many people now hire a set when they reach their destination.  The quality of hire clubs is excellent and the GolfKings team can book an appropriate set for you.  But if you can’t bear to go without your trusty sticks, there are a few things to consider:

  • Pack your clubs in a durable travel case because they will need to be checked in
  • Pre-pay for their carriage (if your airline charges) as paying at the airport can be expensive
  • Don’t over-pack your golf bag.  Allowances vary by airline so check the permitted weight on your tickets

Stay on Course

Many popular golf hotels, especially in destinations like Belek, Turkey, offer first pick of tee times to their hotel guests.

If you really want to play that special course that everyone is talking about, then it’s often best to stay at the hotel that owns that course.

The GolfKings team knows where this situation applies and will recommend the best and most affordable solution for your group.


A golf holiday is great fun.  It’s an opportunity to indulge in your hobby while enjoying warm weather and sunshine.

In the words of Groucho Marx, “I’m not feeling very well, I need a doctor immediately. Ring the nearest golf course.”

So, our final, and perhaps most important tip?  Relax, take your mind off work and home, and enjoy yourself.
