What do I need to consider when picking a Golf Resort?

We all have different aspirations and budgets to consider when decided about a golf resort.

The Quality of the Hotel and good may be more important than the quality of courses you play, or both could be required. Location is important too, some of your may be happy to just stay on site and drink in the bar or some may enjoy to venture out and sample the local nightlife, facilities are important too, is there a pool or spa, sometimes that could be a deal breaker and it’s important to know what each resort has to offer. Always contact us here at Golf Holiday Shop for in depth knowledge on each resort we are working with.

A good Golf Tour Operator will have first-hand knowledge of the properties and the golf courses in the area and will be able to recommend an itinerary to match your budget and your handicap.

Who Should I Book With?

Golf Holiday Shop of course!

On a serious note it is vital that you are choosing a Golf Tour Operator who is fully bonded, financially protected and insured, if they aren’t then you could be in big trouble should anything go wrong.

You can always tell if someone is bonded and trading legally when you see the bonded logo on their main page such as ABTA, PTS, TRIP, ATOL, TTA. Always ask your Tour Operator if they are bonded, it is important to know you are safeguarded and your money is protected, if they are not bonded you are at risk of losing everything!

Here at Golf Holiday Shop we are Fully Bonded and 100% Financially protected through our Protected Trust Services Account.

What our clients say

    Location: Portugal | ' A Great five days!

    A great five days! The service Stewart provided was second to none. A very slick operation. The hotel, Marina club in Lagos, was above expectation with very helpful staff, along with a good choice of breakfast and wide selection of drinks in the bar. Very close to restaurants and town with a choice for every taste. The golf course, Palmares was very challenging with three very different nine holes.
    I have 16 very happy golfers along with myself already thinking of our next golfing holiday.
