More and more people spend their golf holidays in Europe
Spending your vacation in Europe is a great way to spend your golfing holiday. There are many golf courses all throughout Europe that are perfect for golfers of any skill level. Whether you are going with friends or family, you will be sure to have a European golf holiday to remember.
Ireland and the British Isles are home to some of the world’s best golf courses. Not only will you be playing on some of the best courses in the world but you will also have the pleasure of enjoying the sights and the breathtaking scenery. If you want to play a round of golf with a stunning backdrop, the Aisla course at the Turnberry Resort is the place to play. This course is very difficult and challenging and can be difficult to beat, even for the most experienced golfer. You will be able to enjoy views of the Mull of Kintyre, the Isle of Arran, and the Firth of Clyde. During windy days, the holes that are closest to the sea are not protected by sand dunes making for a unique challenge.
In Ireland, the Old Ballybunion course was originally built in 1893 as a 12-hole golf course and was expanded in 1926 to an 18-hole course. It has been known as one of the world’s top golf courses to play by seaside. It has been tested by many reputable individuals such as the former US President Bill Clinton and writer Herbert Warren Wind. The sand dunes alone make this golf course a challenging one.
If you are traveling with your family and need a golfing holiday that also provides activities for the non-golfers in your crew, European golf courses are the best. The Golf de Morfontaine in France is an 18-hole course designed by Tom Simpson. Visitors are only allowed to play on the course by invitation from one of its current members. If you are lucky enough to receive one of those invitations, you will be able to experience France’s top golf course.
The Valderrama Golf Club in Spain has been the home of many well-known golf events such as the 1997 Ryder Cup and the Volvo Masters. This is an elite member’s only club; visitors are able to get to the first tee to enjoy the natural beauty this golf course emanates. This golf course is only one of two courses in Europe to be given full Audubon status.
Regardless of where in Europe you choose to go, you will be able to find golf courses for all skill levels that provide amazing picturesque backdrops and challenging courses. Not only will you play on some of the world’s best courses but you will also be able to enjoy fine dining, music, bars and pubs, entertainment, and endless shopping.
