Finding Hot Deals on Group Golf Packages


Consulting local golf experts is one of the most effective ways to find hot deals on group golf packages. But, only the finest golf vacation companies offer packages to several renown US and International destinations. From 5-star courses in California and Hawaii to Scotland Bermuda, partnering with golf vacation specialists will also save you money. For instance, Golf Zoo has special rate agreements with many destinations both foreign and domestic, so your package rates will always be lower than the cost of planning the trip by yourself.

Here are some of the top US destinations that are currently offering hot deals on group golf packages:

   Monterey (California) - If you’ve ever wanted to golf on the same links as many past legends of the sport, then the #1 rated course in America—Pebble Beach—should already be on your radar. A Monterey golf vacation package typically includes 2+ nights at the Inn at Spanish Bay with double occupancy and a cart at either Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course or Links at Spanish Bay. Contact a golf vacation specialist for current rates.

   Phoenix (Arizona) - With rates advertised from $99, you can enjoy many of Scottsdale’s highest ranked courses without breaking the bank. Enjoy 4 Nights lodging at the Villas at San Milan with the option to golf at any of the following clubs: Legacy, Eagle Mountain, Gold Canyon and SunRidge Canyon. Contact a Phoenix/Scottsdale Vacation Specialist for package details or to get a customized trip itinerary.

   Maui & Oahu (Hawaii) - Commonly referred to as “The Best State for Golf,” the Hawaiian Islands are one of the most popular destinations for group golf packages. The predictable weather of both Maui and Oahu is just one of many perks of golfing there. You can enjoy accommodations at either Turtle Bay Resort (Oahu) or at the Kapulua Villas (Maui). Complete a trip quote request form today and a golf vacation specialists will get back to you soon.

In addition to popular domestic golf courses, a prominent golf vacation company should also offer International golf destinations. Here are some desired foreign locations with hot deals:

   Prince Edward Island (Canada) - Referred to as the number-one-rated golf destination in Canada, Prince Edward Island features a variety of cultural events along with its championship golf courses. Guests will enjoy accommodations at The Delta Prince Edward in Olde Charlottetown. Contact a local golf vacation specialist for a quote.

   Bermuda - If simply visiting this proverbial paradise isn't enough, then perhaps adding a group golf package at the Edgehill Manor where you can enjoy the eight championship courses designed by architect Robert Trent Jones will suit you. The Bermuda Islands features two of the top courses in the world: Port Royal Golf Club and Mid Ocean Club.

Finally, before choosing a golf vacation company for your group golf package, confirm that they have positive reviews from previous customers. Conducting some online research could yield valuable information regarding how a company treats their customers…
