Points to get the most out of your 'spectator experience' at Golf tournaments

If you're in your golf vacation, and luckily you've had a chance to experience a golf tournament, let us double up the excitement of this already-amazing opportunity.
Here are some tips:

Choose and Plan. Planning is still king in whatever venture. For golf tournaments, ask yourself: Do you want to hike and watch your favorite player or do you want to camp at one hole so you can watch everyone play the same holes and compare their games? Or do you want to really see the whole course?

If you want to follow your favorite player, keep an eye out for the pairings guide as you enter the grounds for the easy access of the players you’d like to see throughout the day.

If you want a taste of everything, consider spending your time at a location where you can watch most amount of golf. The best spots for you, according to an avid golf spectator, is behind the 4th hole so you can see the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th hole, or between the 15th and 16th hole.

Regardless of the path you choose, set your plan before you arrive.

What to bring (and not). Of course, you can bring sunglasses, binoculars, and plenty of drinking water. In most cases, tournament security will block spectators carrying backpacks, cameras, over-sized chairs, laptops, bicycles, radios, weapons, signs and banners, cellphones (and any other devices that could make noise—these devices might distract the players and other spectators). Or you better check first the list of the allowed things to carry inside the tournament course.

Weather. We are not ruining the train of excitement, but yes, bad weather can happen anytime. Just in case an inclement weather is announced, stay away from these zones: open areas, hilltops/high places, isolated tress, golf carts, and wire fences.

Etiquette. Yes, you do have to observe appropriate behavior while inside the course. To simplify, just follow what you're told by the volunteers at the course area. Most importantly, be courteous to the players, and don't distract them while they play since they have to concentrate. A small distraction may cost a player a million dollars. Remember that most of the players make a living of these golf tournaments.

And be reminded of the "Hands in the air" gesture by the volunteer, which means stop and be quiet while golfers are playing their shots.

The best holes. According to many, holes from 15 to 18 are the best parts of the game. These holes are the final stretch. You will surely get tips on how to play difficult shots for your game and try to emulate on your golf trip.

Above all, have fun. There's nothing like a professional golf tournament. It will surely complete your entire golf vacation.

Scott's Top 5 Lodging Options for 2015

Below you will find my list of the 5 best accommodations in Palm Springs, which I composed with what I believe to be important factors when choosing a hotel.
  • Friendly/accommodating staff
  • Cleanliness
  • Location
  • Room quality
  • Bang for the buck

1. Renaissance Esmeralda Resort - This hotel is my favorite in the area, it is the most updated with spacious rooms and a very friendly staff. It doesn't hurt that there are two outstanding golf courses within walking distance that are affiliated with the hotel. The hotel has even has a sandy beach on site!


2. La Quinta Resort - It goes without saying that La Quinta Resort is one of the best places to stay because of the golf located within alone, but the lodging is just as nice. The resort features everything you can ask for and more. Every time you turn a corner at the resort you run io a pool of some sort. They have a large selection of rooms from Resort Rooms to a Starlight King Upstairs room and everything in between. This is a great choice if you are looking to only stay at one resort and play golf due to the 5 golf courses affiliated with La Quinta.


3. Marriott Desert Springs Resort - How could I not have a hotel that features a boat that takes you around the property!! That is just one of the many things you will love about this Resort. When not playing on one of the two championship courses, take in the 18 hole miniature golf course!(First mini golf course I have played where I lost a ProV1!!) This hotel is a popular destination in the off-season as well with great rates and a great place to just relax.


4. Marriott Residence Inn Palm Desert - This is one of my favorite hotels for a group of guys on a budget. The hotel is in a great location, minutes from awesome golf and restaurants. It is one of, if not the best Residence Inn's that I have ever seen. The rooms are so big, and the staff is awesome. If you are looking for a great hotel at a slightly lower price point consider the Residence Inn Palm Desert.



5. Courtyard by Marriott - Another great option for the budget minded. Very nice, spacious rooms and it sits right next door to the Marriott Residence Inn, so it is in a great location.



That's my top five for 2015, call me today to plan your next golf trip and reserve a room or two at one of these awesome Resorts/Hotels.

Playing Golf With The Right Attitude

Playing golf can be fun and easy when you have the right attitude. Without the right attitude, a golf trip can become stressful due to a bad day at the course. It requires patience and usually takes time to become familiar with the basic rules and etiquette. Golf is known to be a gentleman's game. Fans see this as true in the professional court with players being ever modest in their ways. The fact that a caddy's attitude also adds to a players status on the field means that the game of golf really requires a good character. Being a bad golfer may have been funny in the film, Happy Gilmore, but it does not go well in the real world. In fact, some businessmen exchange transactions on a golf vacation because of the calm and relaxing atmosphere mostly present there.

Having said all those things would probably lead you to the query as what the ideal attitude should be used on a golf course. The answer is positive. A positive attitude can come in different faces. It could mean being polite or being optimistic. Being polite is a given, as expressed earlier, but having that sense of viewing the future with an affirmative light means more than just politeness. Though maintaining a positive attitude can be difficult at times, the reward of it will sometimes surprise you – bringing good karma.

An exceptional golf trip needs positive momentum that could help bring a successful golf swing. The method of talking and walking is the fundamentals for ones confidence. In fact, such attitude can be considered one of the basic golf techniques – something that other sports also need in the game. To acquire that positive attitude means to develop that self-confidence.

A golfer needs to be able to get over any form of fear by constant effort and toil. Kids have it easier when it comes to learning new things because they have not learned to become afraid of what is that's new to them. Adult players become stagnant with their technique and hold up success because of pessimism. Thinking of that one shot a few holes earlier that didn't go your way will only lead to negative outcomes. But by foreshadowing a successful result, this has been said to somehow congregate the cosmos and provide a favorable outcome during a golf vacation.

One way to develop that self-confidence is for a golfer to constantly manage a personal “pep talk” as you play and after making a shot. Capturing the ways of a coach or those motivational seminars into the game would really bring about an inspiration that could become the main thrust into succeeding in a golf round.

Having that role model to follow is also a great technique to develop mental toughness into outmatching tough situations. True to the saying “Keep your cool head, while others around you are losing theirs”, self-confidence can bring a golfer to the top of their game, as it did with famous players around the world. A golf trip culminates and commences with a positive attitude and success can be accomplished with a sense of determination and perseverance.

Of Golf Trips and Greens: Some fun and awesome facts about golf


Before you embark on one of your many golf trips, know and share these fun and awesome facts about your favorite sport with your buddies.

Let's get started:

  1. Aim for low scores. Golf is the only sport which aims for the lowest score, also known as stroke play. Unlike any other sport, getting the lowest score in golf is not very easy.

  1. How many is a round? A 'round' in playing golf typically consists of 18 holes in the order determined by the course design.

  1. Count your clubs. During a stipulated round, only a maximum of 14 clubs is allowed in a player's bag. A 2 stroke penalty is incurred for more than this number of clubs.

  1. Hit a bird...ie. The term “birdie” was coined by Ab Smith, an American golfer, as he described his excellent shot as “bird of a shot” in 1899. Later on, it became “birdie”, which means one shot less than a par for a hole.

  1. Do the Bogey. “Bogey” comes from the song entitled “The Bogey Man” (later known as “The Colonel Bogey March”). By mid to late 1890s, the term ’bogey score’ referred to the ideal score of a good player who made a hole under perfect conditions. In early Rules books, you can find a section detailing the regulations for 'Bogey Competitions.'

  1. Choose your course.  According to the National Golf Foundation, there are 15,753 courses in the U.S as of 2012 (California is the nation's No.2 golfing state with 921 courses. Florida, on the other hand, has 1,051.) So, there are tons of golf vacation destinations to choose from.

  1. Hot weather might be good. During hot weather, the golf ball significantly travels farther. The warmer the golf ball, the more elastic it becomes, thus causing the ball to fly further when you hit it with more force.

  1. The tournaments. These major championships are the four most prestigious men’s tournaments of the year: The Masters, the U.S. Open, The Open Championship (known in North America as the British Open) and the PGA Championship.

  1. Walk the course. Walking roughly four miles on all 18 holes will burn 2,000 calories. Compare that to driving carts, which only burn about 1,300 calories.

  1. Why is it called golf? The word “golf” does NOT stand for “gentlemen only, ladies forbidden.” That's an internet myth. As a matter of fact, about 23% of professional golfers are female.  Originally, the term 'golf' derives linguistically from the Dutch word 'kolf' or 'kolve,' meaning 'club.' In the Scottish dialect during the late 14th or early 15th century, the Dutch term became 'goff' or 'gouff.' Only later in the 16th century did it become “golf.”

It won't hurt to share bits of golf trivia to your buddies during one of your golf trips.  Have fun!

10 Unwritten rules of golf you must follow on your golf trip

Have you altered some rules in playing golf from your last golf trip?

Sure, we've all done it. And to tell the truth, sometimes breaking the rules can make the game relaxed, non-competitive and friendly.

But regardless of how informal your round might be, there are unwritten rules you should abide by. Here are some:

Silence Please
Foremost, golf is a game of concentration. So, you should never distract golfers doing their tee-off, putt or hit. Otherwise, they'll hit bad shots and you will get the blame for it. Thus, keep away those ringing devices that can distract the players. And do your best to exclude talking during the critical times.

Yelling 'fore'
'Fore' is an important and the most popular unwritten rule in playing golf. It's the universal way of letting other golfers know that there's a golf ball headed in their direction. If you don't yell “fore”, you'll possibly hit other golfers and it will get you in trouble.

Get off the line
The line means the path between player and the hole. It's always a good manner to not block or step in line. In fact, a single shoe imprint in the line could alter the direction of the rolling ball causing it to miss the hole.

Respect the game
Don't yell, laugh, or throw your club when you or other golfers miss a shot. Be graceful if you won and respect others if they have lost. And after the round, it's also a matter of respect to remove your hat when shaking hands with your opponents.

Fix your divot
Often times, teeing off and making a fairway shot will result to a large divot. Be courteous enough to replace the divot you made with a new filling mixture located nearby. Replacing it keeps the course playable for future golfers.

Don't forget your tee
After you've made your fairway shot, don't leave your tee behind for the groundskeepers to take care of. Pick up your tee and if it's damaged, throw it in the garbage.

Watch your shadow
Make sure your shadow is not on other golfers' line while they're putting. Politely move back until your shadow doesn't cast the line anymore.

Mind your cart
Park your cart where it doesn't block the hole or the line of another player. Also, follow the 'cart park only' rules provided by your golf course.

Tip well
In your golf vacations, the caddies, bag boys, etc. are not there for fun. It's their job. If they've been serving you well, it's your discretion to tip them professionally.

If you won, buy drinks
Instead of bragging after you've won a lot of money, buy other golfers a drink.

By following these simple unwritten golf rules, you’ll be sure to have a better and a rewarding game on your golf trip.

San Antonio Golf


Displaying image.jpeg
The Palmer course at La Cantera, San Antonio, TX

When you think of golf, most do not think of Texas, but there are some great courses in San Antonio otherwise known as the Texas Hill County. 

The Resort Course at La Cantera hosted the Texas Open when it opened in 1995, it’s a really fun course to play and the 80 foot drop at the 7th tee to the fairway below is awesome some people call this hole The Rattle Snake as you can see the Iron Rattle Snake Roller coaster ride of Six Flaggs in the back ground.

The Palmer course at La Cantera has the highest peak in San Antonio and there are several great views from this course with a spectacular finish consisting of 3 tiers on the 18th hole and the water that comes into play.  You might want to snap a quick photo on the Winnie Palmer Memorial Bridge, a tribute from Arnold Palmer to his late wife Winnie.

After golf, you may want to head to downtown San Antonio to the Riverwalk.  The famous Riverwalk has several restaurants from cafes to fine dining and everything in between or just sit at one of the outdoor restaurants/tables with a beer and people watch.

If you are looking for a major challenge, the Hill Country has TPC San Antonio, which consists of the Canyons and the Oaks.  You will need to stay at the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa to get tee times on these two courses. 

You also have Spring Canyons, the Hyatt Hill Country, The Bandit, the Quarry and Silverhorn.  So if you are looking for that “Different Destination”, look no further than the Lone Star State.

Scottsdale - "CP's Top 5" Lodging options for golf groups

Scottsdale Marriott at McDowell Mountains


Coming here to Scottsdale, and not sure where to stay? Here are my "Top 5" options as to where to stay and why...from a twosome to a group of 12, these in my opinion are the best options in the valley of the sun!

  • Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center - I love this option as it's a full service resort in a perfect location, and won't cost an arm and a leg even in peak season. The Scottsdale Resort is located in the heart of Scottsdale, has large rooms that are great for double occupancy, and has one of my favorite bars in the valley, Sangrias. You can hang out, enjoy the famous "Fab 5" cocktails for 5 bucks, enjoy really good music, and shoot a couple game of pool. This is my #1 choice for "double occupancy" groups coming to Scottsdale.
  • Private Estate Homes - Have a group of 8-12, and want to hang out under one roof? Our 3 Private Estate Homes located in Fountain Hills are perfect. All 3 are large homes that will sleep up to 12 golfers, each with their own bed, and are decked out with all the goodies that golf groupies love... pool tables, poker tables, private pools and Jacuzzis, putting greens, ping pong, and more. This setup is perfect for a hassle free vacation, as all 3 are less than 10 minutes from We-Ko-Pa, SunRidge Canyon, Eagle Mountain and Desert Canyon clubs. Play golf, come back, grill some steaks, have cocktails and relax with your buddies - that's what the Golf Zoo Private Estate Homes are all about.
  • Villas at Legend and Tradition at Kierland - This is a great setup for foursomes. We have 1, 2, and 3 bedroom options here that are located right in the heart of the Kierland Commons area, so tons of restaurants and bars are within 5 minutes. Also a great location to get to the golf in North or Northeast Scottsdale. (TPC, Troon North, Grayhawk, Legend Trail, and of course Kierland Golf Club iis right there) The nice thing here is plenty of space, and the ability to customize the bedding. (Can have 1 King, or 2 twins in each bedroom, and easy to modify.) Very economical, even in peak season.
  • Hyatt House - Old Town Scottsdale - golfing during the day, and bar hopping at night? Hyatt House is your spot! Located in the heart of Oldtown, Hyatt House has 2 bedroom suites with living rooms and full kitchens that are perfect for twosomes, threesomes, and foursomes with the standard two bedroom King/King, the "Trio" with King and 2 doubles, and the very popular "Quad" that has 4 double beds for foursomes. A little more pricey than the condos, but it's all about location and convenience. The free full breakfast buffet (with omelet station) gets your day off to a perfect start. 
  • Marriott at McDowell Mountains - I love the "Triple M" because all the rooms are true suites (separate bedroom and living room) and is a more "upscale" setup at a great value, with a perfect North Scottsdale location. It sits right on the TPC Champions course, and is only "a par 5 away" from the TPC Stadium Course - Home of the Phoenix Open. Beautiful lobby with a great bar and grill, Agave. Perfect choice for couples, the upscale suites at a decent price, and prime location make the Marriott at McDowell Mountains a no-brainer.

Well there it is my "Top 5" for Scottsdale lodging. Whether you're a twosome, foursome, or a large group, one of these spots will make for a great Scottsdale Golf Vacation. You can also see my "Top 10 Scottsdale Golf Courses" and call me at 888-867-6911 and I will email you a complete customized itinerary.

Have fun and hit em straight!

You, too, can play golf on the PGA Tour's Florida Swing

Ever wonder how you would stack up against the PGA Tour Pros on the courses they play? Well you can have that opportunity with the Florida Swing on the PGA Tour.

While many of the venues that host PGA Tour events are private, here's a tidbit that might surprise: Of the four courses on the Florida Swing, all four are open to the public.
Yep, that means you can play through the Bear Trap at PGA National, site of the Honda Classic, or test your skills on the new and improved TPC Blue Monster at Doral, where owner Donald Trump hopes to land a U.S. Open some day. If you stay at Bay Hill in Orlando you might even run into the tournament host, Arnold Palmer. Or check out the beautiful Copperhead Course at Innisbrook, one of the favorites among PGA Tour players.
They're not cheap to play, of course, but you can get on, whether by booking a tee time or at least staying at the resort. Here's a look:

The Honda Classic, PGA National

Where can you find five championship golf courses, all in PGA Tour-quality shape, all at the same place? The answer: PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. The Champion Course, which has played host to the Ryder Cup, PGA Championship and the Senior PGA Championship, is the host course for the first stop on the Florida Swing, the Honda Classic.
The course is renowned for its famous Bear Trap, holes 15-17 that perilously make their way through a series of lakes and water hazards with no bailout in site. Catch on a calm day, and with a little skill, you have a chance to make it through unscathed. But even the best players in the world tremble through these holes when the wind's ablowin' and the tournament is on the line. All that said, this is a wonderful Jack Nicklaus-designed Florida golf course that's very memorable.
Best part is you'll like the other courses, too. They include the linksy Palmer Course, the traditionally designed (George and Tom) Fazio Course (formerly The Haig) and the Squire, which pays tribute to Gene Sarazan.
Also, the 379-room resort has undergone a $65 million renovation, which means updated rooms, a fabulous lobby bar and terrific restaurants. My favorite part, aside from the golf, is the 40,000-square-foot spa, which offers its outdoor mineral pools, dubbed the Waters of the World.

WGC-Cadillac, Doral Resort

My GolfAdvisor colleague Jason Deegan says the word "opulent" doesn't begin to describe the new Trump National Doral Miami, where they play the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. Pretty much everything is new and spiffy.
The Donald bought the old worn-out resort when it was in bankruptcy in 2012 and vowed to make it U.S. Open worthy and then some. Basically, the 809-acre resort got more than a facelift; it's a complete makeover, including the famed Blue Monster Course, which is now more than 7,500 yards.
The pros will get their first look at the course -- which was extensively altered by architect Gil Hanse -- in competition this March. You can be sure that it will have its old bite and then some, including the 18th, one of the toughest finishing par 4s in the world. Tiger Woods has won there three times, by the way. The course, which used to have six holes with water hazards, now has 14.
Like PGA National, though, there are four other courses at Doral, including the McLean Signature Course, designed by resident teaching pro Jim McClean, and Greg Norman's Great White Course, which was redone in 2005. As part of the recent renovations, the resort also got a new lighted driving range and TaylorMade Performance Lab.

Valspar Championship, Innisbrook Resort

It might surprise many casual golfers to learn that the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort near Tampa is one of the favorites among PGA Tour players, especially those who live in Florida. Paul Azinger, who resides in nearby Bradenton, said it was "the best course we play on tour," and Stewart Cink said it's good enough to host a U.S. Open.
Designed by Larry and Roger Packard, the course opened in 1974 and has hosted numerous pro events, including the Valspar Championship every mid-March. Playing more than 7,300 yards, the par 71 doesn't have a Bear Trap but rather a Snake Pit, which is the finishing stretch on the Copperhead Course.
Again, the beauty of Innisbrook is that there's more golf at this resort.
The recently renovated Island Course plays more than 7,300 yards and has hosted both NCAA Championships and U.S. Open Qualifiers, while the North Course and South Course, although shorter, still have plenty of fangs.

Arnold Palmer Invitational, Bay Hill

If you're an Arnold Palmer fan, have ever drank an Arnold Palmer or just like to walk in the footsteps of a legend, you've got to figure out a way to play out at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando.
Host of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard, the surest way to play the course is to stay at the intimate hotel there. The best part about this whole experience is that you might catch a glimpse of Mr. Palmer at the club. And not that I'm encouraging you to bother him at lunch or on the range, but he's always been fairly approachable.
The course, designed by Palmer and Dick Wilson in 1961, may not be one of the country's best, but it's well above average with several memorable holes. The sixth is one of the best par 5s anywhere, racing around a lake that dares long hitters to cut off as much as they can off the tee shot and approach, making it one of the greatest risk-reward holes in the world. And the finishing hole, with water to cover on the second shot, is pretty memorable as well. Just ask Tiger, who has secured several of his ridiculous eight wins there with long, clinching putts.

Mission Inn Resort & Club near Orlando: More than meets the eye

Mission Inn Resort & Club is a hidden gem. Here is a description of the property and what it has to offer.

HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla. -- You sort of know what to expect withMission Inn Resort & Club just north of Orlando. As Drew Toth, director of sales and marketing, says unapologetically, "This isn't the Ritz-Carlton," so you might expect a pretty blue-collar resort.
And that's true, to a point, until you realize that the clientele runs the gamut.
There's something about this place that appeals to everyone. Sure it's not the Ritz, the Omni and even the Hyatt -- there are plenty of those -- but you won't find anything quite like the Spanish Colonial-style Mission Inn Resort.
It has a golf course that dates back to 1917, a tennis academy, plenty of meeting space and some of the best wedding settings in the state. This is the old "sum of the parts exceeds the whole" scenario. What you see isn't all you get. And you can't underestimate the value of a personal touch.
This unique property has been owned for the past 50 years by the Buecher family, which is still active in the day-to-day operations. Maybe that's why you feel like you're part of that family when you're here. But beyond that, there's simply a pretty good product there -- has been for years -- even if it's not particularly glitzy.

Mission Inn's El Campeon golf course

For golfers, it starts with the older of the two golf courses. Mission Inn's El Campeon Course, designed by Chicago's George O'Neil in 1917 and enhanced in 1926 by Charles E. Clarke of Troon, Scotland, has as much character as you'll find in any Florida golf course. It's been the site of NCAA championships, state tournaments and local pro events for decades.
These are not cookie-cutter holes on a typical flat piece of Florida land. The finishing stretch includes a par 4 with an island green surrounded by sand, palm trees and water on the 16th, an adventurous, tough par 5 and a dogleg-right par 4 that plays over water off the tee.
The 6,800-yard par-72 course is one of the two or three hilliest in the state, with elevation changes up to 93 feet that come into play on several holes, not only from elevated tees, but also approaches that add a club or two going back up the hill. That may not sound like a lot to folks who play in other parts of the country, but in Florida, that's huge. And many of the greens have false fronts and quite a bit of slope.
"Every hole will give you something to think about," said a GolfAdvisor reviewer. "Playing this course was truly a gift. Cannot wait to return."
Another reviewer chimed in: "An absolute must for any golfer in Central Florida. It is the unique jewel of all the courses in Central Florida."
As for the other course at Mission Inn, Las Colinas, it's enjoyable, too, and certainly a test, but not nearly as memorable. This 1992 Gary Koch design is spread out and not walkable like El Campeon. Still, it complements the other course and gives resort guests two options.

The rest of the story at Mission Inn Resort

If you're staying at the resort on a weekend, you might want to ask for a room away from the lobby. The reason: wedding traffic. Mission Inn does a lot of it, and wedding guests like to celebrate. They're not always quiet when they roll in late at night. So just ask for a room a little farther out -- at least for the weekend -- unless you plan on crashing their party.
I bring this up because much of the same thing that attracts wedding parties -- setting and value -- appeals to golfers as well. The resort has a marina, a poolside bar, pool room, fitness center, nice spa and really good food. I was particularly impressed with the Saturday night prime rib and seafood buffet. Even if you're on a diet, you might enjoy the sushi, crab legs, fish and fresh vegetables. If you're not watching your weight, you can graze for a couple of hours. Be sure to top it off with a sundae and a bread pudding.
If you're like me and play tennis, too, you'll love the tennis facilities, which not only include hard courts, but also six har-tru claylike courts as well as the Cesar Villarroel Tennis Academy. Villarroel is a former Bolivian Davis Cup player who has been at the resort for 25 years, and he knows how to teach, not only in terms of strokes, but strategy as well.
There's also eco-touring, fishing, volleyball, skeet shooting and excursions into the nearby town of Mount Dora. And the resort's 30,000 square feet of meeting space not only attracts wedding parties, but also corporate retreats.
