Sometimes finding a holiday destination for a family is difficult as everyone wants and needs different things and activities but here is our list of the top five family golfing holiday destinations where we have thought of both the children and the adults’ needs…

If you are looking for a fantastic family golfing holiday it is hard to look past the hotels and resorts in Belek as they offer some of the most luxurious holidays and golfing experiences available…


First up we have the brand new Sueno Deluxe which just opened in May this year. The hotel is situated just a stone’s throw away from the beach and offers all-inclusive catering which we all know can be easier than self-catered when budgeting for a family holiday! It would be almost impossible for anyone to be bored here with the beach club, many pools and water activities. A majority of the stunning and modern rooms give guests incredible sea views as well as being fitted with plasma screen TVs, a minibar and a large balcony on which you can enjoy the views. For those non-golfers who are looking for more than water-based activities there is also a gym and spa which guests can appreciate. There are also many different restaurants and bars so even those children with the pickiest of tastes could not go hungry at this stunning new hotel. To top it all off, the golf courses here are fantastic and in the summer are almost empty so you can take a guilt-free round or two knowing that your family are more than taken care of here.

Another great new hotel in Belek is the Maxx Royal Golf Resort Hotel. This hotel is one of the most modern and luxurious experiences that Belek has to offer and is also all-inclusive like the Sueno being ideal for families of large eaters especially! Impressively, the Maxx Royal hosts several à la carte restaurants which are all free and easy to book for all guests, the hotel also offers a 24 hour restaurant which can be perfect and ideal for those children who don’t quite have a set eating routine! All rooms feature a LCD TV, a private balcony as well as a well-stocked minibar which is replenished everyday with snacks and soft drinks, the bathrooms are also very spacious and well-stocked with complimentary toiletries. Onsite, as well as the spectacular golf course, there is a water park perfect for families who want some fun without leaving the resort, there are also seven swimming pools as well as a spa and gym where guests can relax and enjoy a traditional Turkish bath as well as a variety of treatments. The hotel is now the owner of the fabulous 18-hole world-class Montgomerie Golf Course where golfers can escape to enjoy a great round and then re-join the non-golfers for a relaxing dip in one of the many pools or a drink at the bar. This hotel truly is perfect for an exciting and luxurious family golfing holiday.

If you’re not looking for all-inclusive or are looking for a different destination to Turkey then look no further than the great options that sunny Spain has to offer….


A fantastic option is the Las Lomas village in La Manga Club. The apartments are built into the hill which means great views out to the Mediterranean and the North Course as well as this, the resort has a village-like feel about it making it feel homely and welcoming. These apartments are perfect for those with younger children when self-catering is sometimes easier as you choose your dining times but there are some great restaurants both on and just off site which are also reasonably priced. Those looking for a sporting holiday should look no further as there are various sporting academies such as tennis or cricket which are perfect for those wanting more scheduled activities during their holiday. The village also hosts its own spectacular spa which is fully fitted with Jacuzzis, saunas, steam rooms and a huge lap pool as well as a separate children’s pool. Guests have access to tee-times at the fantastic La Manga Club golf courses and can go and play knowing that the rest of their family are enjoying their stay as much as they are.



Another fabulous golfing resort in Spain but in a different region is the Islantilla Golf Resort Hotel. The resort combines its spectacular 27-hole golf course with a fantastic beach club perfect for all ages which is only a ten minute complimentary train ride away from the hotel. The hotel offers food on a half-board basis which can be ideal for families here as the commercial centre with a small selection of restaurants and shops is only a short walk away so lunch is easy to source and could make a change to eating at the hotel throughout the whole of the holiday but during the evenings the buffet is a different theme most nights which offers all guests the variety they need. The hotel offers numerous leisure activities both by the hotel and down at the beach club which means that your children could never be bored or short of things to do here whether it be playing in the large outdoor pool or enjoying what the beach club has to offer. The rooms are spacious and well-fitted and most have balconies on which to relax after either a hard day at the golf course or a tiring day at the beach club. This hotel is perfect for those looking for a quieter family golfing holiday where the hotel is peaceful but there are still plenty of activities for the little ones.

If you’re looking for a luxury family golfing holiday then look no further than what the Penina Hotel and Golf Resort in Portugal has to offer…


Those with young children cannot go wrong with choosing the Penina Resort for their next family golfing holiday. This resort has class, character and a fabulous golf course. The Kangaroo Kids Club is complimentary and once the children are signed up they can sign in and out whenever suits you where they can participate in a variety of fun activities whilst giving you the chance to relax by the huge pool or have a tough round or two on the golf course. If you’re looking for more excitement than just the hotel then you’re in luck here as Alvor is just a five minute drive away where you can find a wide variety of shops and restaurants to enjoy as well as a lovely beach. Further out are the towns of Portimao and Lagoa which are just ten minutes away and also have a wide variety of restaurants and activities as well as being interesting towns. This resort hotel is perfect for young children who need activities during the day to keep them occupied whilst still being within reach of their parents! Overall, if you’re looking for a more traditional golfing family holiday then this is the perfect destination for you.
