5 Reasons Why a Golf Holiday Should be Your Next Getaway

25 July, 2022

Have you ever dreamed of a break in a gorgeous setting with a range of golf courses right on your doorstep?

If you're a golf enthusiast, it's likely you have. Golf trips can be a great way to unwind while immersing yourself in something you love, improving your game, building on skills and challenging yourself.

But why should you choose a golf getaway over another kind of holiday?

Read on below for reasons why you should swap your parasol for your putter this year.

1. They're different from the norm

Simply put, golfing holidays can act as a refreshing change of pace, cutting through the monotony of your regular golfing routine and inviting you to try something new.

The majority of people do not have access to several golf courses within a few miles of their homes, so it's easy to get bored of what's nearby. A golfing holiday offers you the chance to try out a number of new golf courses in a brand new environment.

Even if you're not an avid golfer, a golfing trip is the opportunity to experience something different and learn a new skill; which can feel exhilarating, challenging and really rewarding.

Golfing breaks are great for engaging you in the experience, making you feel refreshed once your break is over.

Playing on a championship course that is new to you can reignite your passion and love for the sport.

2. Do what you love

The perfect holiday looks different to everyone. Some people love to swim at the beach, others want to shop and dine in fancy restaurants in a top city. And some people like to play golf.

Ultimately, a great holiday is all about personal taste and indulging in things that you don't often get a chance to do.

If you have a passion for golf, taking a dedicated break where you can concentrate on nothing but what you love makes for the perfect getaway.

3. Golf is incredibly relaxing

There's a reason why golf is a popular activity with those who have high-powered jobs and lots of responsibilities. Some people find golf an almost meditative experience, a place where they can truly unwind.

In fact, it was proven in a Swedish study that not only is golf a stress reliever, but golfers live longer too.

Golf resorts can be the ideal places to relax, recuperate and reinvigorate.

4. Get outdoors and feel the benefits

Everyone knows that getting outside is beneficial to our physical health, but did you know being in the outdoors is great for your mental health too?

Participating in outdoor activities has many benefits, including:

  • Better sleeping habits

  • Lower blood pressure

  • Decreased depression

  • Boosted creative thinking

  • Reduced anxiety

This means you'll end your holiday feeling mentally and physically well.

5. See stunning sights from the golf course

From the sand dunes in China to the coastal views of Australia and New Zealand, golf courses offer us access to some of the most impressive and stunning sights the world has to offer; and Scotland is no exception.

Our unique country is famous for its rugged scenery, and with our nearby golf courses situated amongst iconic Highland landscapes, you'll get a chance to experience it all while challenging yourself and having fun.
