Handy golf tips for golfing Holidays
Most golf clubs overseas will require each golfer to have a valid handicap certificate but this is not always the case, just ask one of our golf specialists to check it out for you. If you are a member of a golf club in the UK you will need to ask your Golf professional or golf secretary for a copy of your handicap certificate to take with you when going on a golf holiday. some golf courses may also apply a maximum handicap so you will need to advise the correct handicaps for all your party.
Golf Shoes for Overseas Golf Course
Foot wear needs to be considered when golfing overseas as most golf clubs only allow soft spike shoes. Most clubs sell them out there at quite competitive prices and can often have a better range to choose from than at home, depending on the time of year. Remember to check this before departing on your golf holiday as you may not be allowed to play with the wrong golf shoes.
Golf Club Carriage by Airlines
Carriage of golf clubs will need to be advised at the time of booking as some charter and low cost airlines can apply a charge for transportation of these items. It is also advisable to consider purchasing a golf transportation bag that will protect your golf clubs and golf bag.
Golf Tee Times Abroad
Golf tee times can be requested for which ever time you prefer, however in the high season it is not always possible to confirm your initial requests and alternatives will be offered to you. No refunds are issued for golf tee times if cancelled on the same day.
Golf Weather Overseas
Sunshine makes the round of golf feel much better than a rainy day but it's always good to make sure you have suntan screen with you as well as a good hat and sunglasses.
Driving Instructions to golf Courses
Always make sure you have clear instructions of how to get to the golf club where your tee time is booked and leave yourself at least 1 hour before tee time to get your self organised. When golfing overseas tee times are very strict and will be given away if you are not there on time.
Slow Paly on Overseas Golf Courses
Slow play is not accepted on most courses overseas in particular Portugal and Spain and the golf marshall will give warnings if he feels that your play is slow. If slow play persists they can ask you to leave the course so remember don't hang around!
