Travelling holiday golfers warned that heading abroad without proper golf insurance could end up a costly exercise
By Chris Johnston
With the nights drawing in, you may find it more difficult to get some extended time on the golf course. What’s the solution? Book a trip abroad to take advantage of winter sun and world-class courses.
When it comes to golfing holidays, the Costa del Sol and Algarve will always be firm favourites due to the amazing array of courses. However, you may not find temperatures quite up to par during the winter months.
For a real taste of winter sunshine, you’re better off looking further afield. There are a whole host of destinations you could consider, with Florida, California, Barbados, South Africa and Vietnam just some of the standout destinations on the table (all with spectacular courses and temperatures to match).
Before you depart remember to invest in golf travel insurance. Without specialist cover you may be left out of pocket if your clubs are lost, stolen, damaged or delayed, if you cannot use your pre-paid green fees, or if you’re forced to buy a round of drinks following a hole in one.
