There aren’t many things in life that can put things into perspective quite like a good game of golf so make sure to look at the very best in competitive pricing from golf holidays direct before you plan your next golfing holiday. There’s letting your mind wander, idle and content, as you make your way through the links… And then comes the moment when it’s time to take your shot, when concentration and poise reign supreme.

And while there’s plenty of old jokes about golfers, here at Oliver’s Travels we’re quite partial to a few holes. That’s why when we handpick our luxury villas for golf, we’ve chosen some that are within easy reach of some of the best courses throughout England and Ireland and the Carribbean.

Whether you’re heading out for a weekend with a few close friends (and a little friendly banter) or looking for a handy way to wind down during a corporate retreat, a few rounds of golf could be just what you need – and for those who prefer to relax without having to worry which iron to use, there’s plenty of other activities at many of our properties. If you want to do some practice prior going to your vacation, try buying a simulator at at shop indoor golf to practice, golf bags can be great.
