If you are a great golf fan then it makes sense to plan a holiday around getting some games in. You don’t even need to leave the United Kingdom because there are plenty of golf clubs in Devon.
Devon is a beautiful area of the UK, in the south and by the sea. It’s rural, has great food and is good for getting outside.
You may not want to book the whole Devon holiday around golf unless you are a huge fan. It depends how much holiday you have, what else you want to see and do in Devon and who you are travelling with.
One option if you are going for a full-on golfing holiday is to try a few clubs in the region to experience the see a bit more of the area. The other option is to just go to the one club which is good if you are planning on taking lessons because the instructor will be the same throughout your trip and they will get to know you and your golf swing well. Another advantage to staying at the same club is that you will be able to get to know fellow members better and make some lasting friendships.
Some golf clubs in Devon have accommodation on site which is very handy if you want to fully immerse yourself in the game and golfing culture for the duration of your trip. It also saves travel costs and time compared to if you were staying off site.
If you have not played golf before but want to give it a go it is probably best just to book one day at a golf course and spend the rest of the time seeing what else Devon has to offer such as great beaches, food and surfing, especially if the people you are travelling with aren’t golfing fans. If you then find you love the game or want to get in some serious practise, you can always book a proper golfing holiday at a later date.
Whichever golf clubs you plan to go to in Devon, check before you go what their prices and membership terms are and whether they have or can recommend anywhere to stay.
If you are serious about the game it is probably best to take your own set of clubs with you so that you can get to know them better and make your game as good as it can be, but if you are simply trying the game out then hiring some clubs will not be a problem.
Devon is an excellent county and a wonderful place to take a golfing holiday so why not play golf in Devon soon.
