A great idea for a family vacation is the Bahamas. If you’ve never been to the Bahamas then you’re missing out on a tropical paradise. For golfers, there is nothing quite like playing golf in the Bahamas on the beautiful, lushly manicured golf courses, some of which overlook the ocean.
For a family, learning to play golf can be fun for all ages. Just because you’ve never played golf before doesn’t mean you should be intimidated. Golf professionals offer courses for the whole family on most courses. Not only is it a fun recreational sport, it can turn a family vacation into a learning experience and become a lifelong family favorite.
The great weather in the Bahamas makes golf a year round sport with winter temperatures reaching 70 degrees. The great weather also means the grass is always green and there are several championship golf courses. For this reason, several championship tournaments in golf and tennis are held in the Bahamas.
There is an Arnold Palmer course that has existed since the 1930s as a private retreat for British expatriates. There are championship courses on Paradise Island, Grand Bahamas and Cable Beach. Imagine sand and water hazards that are the beach and the Atlantic!
There are not many places in the world that offer such a challenge as the golf courses of the Bahamas Islands. Of course there are courses that are not so demanding that they are not suitable for all skill levels. Some of the championship players like Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player praise the courses for the panoramic views big enough to distract you from the game. One of the courses has six holes by the sea.
The best value for money family golf vacation is to find one of the many hotels that offer golf packages that include a discounted room and golf course fees. Often these packages are good for up to 4 people per room and it is great value for a family holiday.
Most of the larger resorts are in close proximity to oceanfront golf courses, so a golf package is a great way to get the very best in accommodation and golfing. Most of them run shuttles to golf courses if they are further than walking distance. Golf and tennis are major year-round draws on a Bahamas vacation.
Of course there are other things to do such as enjoying the white sandy beaches, gentle ocean waves and breezes or take a glass bottom boat ride to see the beautiful coral reefs and tropical marine life. You can visit the marketplaces, shops and authentic restaurants offering the national dish, conch. You have to try the conch fritters, although you can get the fritters or try seared or cerviche scallops at all resorts. One thing is for sure, once you’ve taken a family golf trip to the Bahamas, it will be a vacation hard to beat!
