Golf holiday inspiration from HomeAway
Find accommodation for golf holidays at the best golf resorts in Europe, USA and worldwide
If you have mastered your local golf course, why not test your skills on some of the more challenging golf courses set in beautiful locations around the world? Golfing holidays with friends and family are a fantastic option for a fun sports holiday, and since golf resorts tend to be located in great holiday destinations which offer plenty of non-golf orientated entertainment, there'll be enough activities for those in your party who don't enjoy the game as much as you.
Taking an independently organized golf break allows you to tailor your golf holiday to fit your exact golfing preferences by allowing you to choose from a far larger range of golf courses, play a number of different courses during a single golf break and organize independent golf lessons as and when you would like them. By arranging your golf activities yourself and choosing private golf holiday accommodation direct from the owner through HomeAway Holiday-Rentals, you also get to save money by avoiding expensive agency fees. Visit our Golf Holiday Directory to see our fantastic selection of holiday homes located in great golf destinations around the world.
