There are many great places to go around the world if you are looking for a luxurious golfing holiday. Some more popular than others, and they can range from all different budgets. When it comes to finding these destinations and organising trips to them, we know what we’re talking about here at Golf Escapes. Our expert knowledge and vast amount of experience contribute to the fact that we are able to pick out not only the best places to go in the world, but also the best one for you. There’s something for everyone out there, however here at Golf Escapes we have come to the conclusion that these are generally the best.


Verdura Golf & Spa Resort…

First off we have Verdura, a beautiful resort set on the Italian island of Sicily. Specifically, in the town of Sciacca. Spread over 230 hectares of stunning land, this resort is home to two brilliant golf courses, both of which prove to be a challenge for any handicap. Opened in 2010, the Verdura resort has gone on to win many awards. 2012 was the year in which these golf courses hosted the PGA European Tour Sicilian open, so it goes to show that there is a very high general standard of quality. Reviews predominantly talk about the amazing level of service, the functions held by the hotel, the food and the golf courses. One of the reviews is even titled ‘vacation in heaven’. This goes to prove that it lives up to people’s expectations and more. Definitely worth a look. Here at Golf Escapes it is not only one of the very popular sellers, yet one of our favourites.


Evolutee Royal Obidos Hotel & Spa…

This is another new one, however this one only opened last year. This hotel has a lot of area for success. It is set in the lovely Lisbon, Portugal. Presuming you like golf, there is a fabulous 18 hole course to play on here which also provides for a fantastic view to wake up to along with the local lagoon. There is a sensational spa on site which will allow you to unwind and get the treatment you need to really get that holiday feeling. The swimming pool seems to stretch for miles and overlooks a fantastic view which really rejuvenates you and gives off an exotic, summer vibe.  From a personal point of view, this is definitely a place to visit, especially being so modern and up to date with everything. The climate in Portugal is renowned for being hot and sunny even when it isn’t in the prime summer months.


Hotel Las Madrigueras…

Las Madrigueras is a straight 5* hotel located in the island of Tenerife which is the largest of the Canary Islands. This immediately lets you know that the weather is likely to be good all year round. Perfect for playing golf. Reviews state that it is one of the best hotels. Ever. Here at Golf Escapes we do not believe dissimilarly regarding this. If you are looking for a simply astonishing hotel with a fantastic golf course and breath taking views, along with direct access to the first tee, then this is most likely the place for you to go. It is definitely one of my own personal recommendations. This is where real golfers go and play a proper course, however anybody can play there. That’s why it is good as it accounts for everyone’s needs.

Penha Longa Resort…

This is yet another superb resort in the popular golfing location of Lisbon in Portugal. This hotel has a lot of history behind it and can be traced back to the 14th century. The brilliant standard of hospitality and service makes it five star rated. It is one of the most elegant hotels we have ever worked with here at Golf Escapes. This hotel has a fantastic 18 hole golf course to offer its customers which is of world class standard making it a very popular choice for people to go and stay at if they are keen golfers. The huge spa also has a lot to offer to people, especially good for people that aren’t there just for the golf. Penha Longa has lots to offer everybody, and in my opinion is one of the best resorts we offer, being located in Portugal also means that there is a lot of golfing interest in the local area.


Cape Provinces…

This hotel is positioned in a slightly unorthodox area for golf, yet has so much to offer, it is in South Africa. This brings a new element to golf, there is also fantastic climate and the scenery is indescribable. The hotel Conrad Pezula Resort and Spa itself is phenomenal. Offering once in a lifetime views, covering 2,500 acres including the Knysna Lagoon and in the distance lies the Outeniqua Mountains. To me this holiday is something you don’t want to miss out on, it seriously is a unique experience which everybody falls in love with. This is another resort that truly deserves it’s 5* rating.


Le Meridian Suvarnabhumi Bangkok Golf and Spa…

Another unique location. This time, the oriental setting of Thailand. This really does have a lot to offer. First of all, the whole different culture just brings a new element to a golfing holiday. This resort is simply fascinating, surrounded by astonishing views, this really is a beautiful place. There are 223 rooms on offer here all of which are contemporary and luxuriously elegant. The marvellous view over the Summit Windmill Golf Club makes for a perfect photo. Here at Golf Escapes we think this is perfect if you want to try something different, yet keep your holidays consisting of golf. That’s why it is in our top 7.


Park Hyatt Dubai…

This middle-eastern resort is yet another unusual place for a golfing holiday however it delivers. It is very prestigious in the sense that it is next to the golf course which is also a yacht club, together are called Dubai creek. Being in Dubai means that it is a very modern and up to date resort with a high level of prestige to it. This is what attracts people to it, if they are after a luxury holiday filled with hot weather, beautiful views and fantastic golf. Here at Golf Escapes we think this is definitely worth a mention as it is so high end. It offers a brilliant holiday all round and anybody would regret turning down the opportunity.
