Golf vacations are on every golf lovers’ to-do list. We get to see new courses and experience different challenges all while taking in a new area. Both golf lovers and non-golfers chatted about traveling for golf at our August 27 Monday Night Twitter Party.
Golfers shared the best and worst parts of a golf vacation and how they get kids involved. Non-golfers shared what they would do on a golf focused vacation and what it would take to make them want to go.
