Spring Golf Trips – Planning a Great South Florida Golf Holiday

Spring Golf Trips – Planning a Great South Florida Golf Holiday

Planning a Spring golf trip with your buddies is the best idea you’ve had in a while. A trip down to sunny South Florida will be filled with more than a few good memory-making moments – and the golf is pretty good too.

If you’re planning a spring golf trip, then we recommend choosing South Florida for more than a few reasons.

  • The weather is (mostly) predictable.
  • We have more golf courses than any other state [1]
  • There’s more to do besides just golfing
  • Florida is a vacation destination

Planning a spring golf trip is better than just taking a vacation because there’s purpose to your trip. So, get your buddies together and plan a great South Florida golf holiday. Here’s how:

Communication

Get an email chain or group text going. Include everyone, even the grumps who refuse to participate. Don’t expect anyone to google any course names you give them, send links to the South Florida golf courses that you find so everyone can easily click and see the course for themselves.

Pick Your Dates

Spring is a time of year, what you need is definite dates. Send ideas for an extended weekend. Most people can’t sacrifice a week and a short weekend is your last options. Try for a Thursday arrival and Monday departure. Work in from there. There are 5 weekends in March 2018 and that’s plenty of time to plan your Spring golf trip.

Find the Right Golf Course

Deer Creek Golf Club hosts players from all over the world. Most golf courses in South Florida are very accommodating to travelers. Call the club ahead of time and ask if they can offer any packages.

Plan More Than Just Golf

Take advantage of your time in So Flo. Go to the beach, check out down town Miami once, then spend the rest of the trip on down town Fort Lauderdale because it’s much better. Groupon has lots of deals, packages, and is great place to get ideas for your golf holiday.

You Can Still Play Golf This Winter!

Winter can put a stop to many of the things that we enjoy: sun bathing, swimming, days at the beach…but it doesn’t have to put a stop to your golf game! Whether you are dealing with a chilly cold front here in South Florida or you are taking your golf game north, Deer Creek Golf Club has a few tips on how to stay warm on the green. So don’t worry, you can still play golf this winter!

Keeping warm is the first step to a successful round during winter. Most of our body heat escapes through our head and hands, so keep those covered! Invest in a warm ski cap and a good pair of gloves. You probably are not going to be able to wear your gloves when you play, so a good tip is to bring along some heating pads and stuff them into your gloves or pockets; they will warm you up fast between rounds. While you are playing, it is probably not a good idea to get around via golf cart. If you do not keep moving, your swing will get stiff and your game will suffer…so walk the course!

For the game, we highly suggest bringing some colored golf balls. There is nothing that will kill the mood like searching through the snow for your white golf ball. Golf balls can pose an entirely different problem as well: their temperature. Warm golf balls travel a lot farther than cold ones, so try to keep them warm in your hands or pockets until you are ready to use them.

You do not have to forgo your favorite pastime during winter. Whether you are playing in South Florida or on an icy, northern golf course, there are plenty of steps that you can take to make sure your game is on point year round!

Tips for Planning a Summer Wedding

The sunshine, the beach, the relaxed vibe of the season. What could be more romantic than a summer wedding? From the guests to the food to the dress, these summer wedding planning tips will help you build amazing wedding memories that will last you a lifetime.

Keep in mind that outdoors poses a variety of problems depending on time of day. Guests might be sweaty during the high afternoon, but the mosquitos will come out the closer you get to sunset. Expecting these problems and preparing for them will save you a world of stress.

Be aware of holidays in the summer. While it might seem ideal to you to schedule your wedding on a long weekend like Memorial Day or Labor Day, your guests likely have family plans and other things going on for the holiday weekend. Be considerate of your guests.

Plan activities for your guests so it feels like a vacation for everyone. They might want to take advantage of the warm weather to see some sights in your city. Make it easy for them and do some legwork ahead of time. Put together a welcome kit for your out-of-towners: fill up a gift bag with a local magazine, a transit or road map, and a list of your favorite dining recommendations.

Bonus: planning a golf course wedding means you can factor in a round of golf for your guests, or a brunch at the golf course’s country club. Take advantage of local amenities and be aware of hotels nearby, so that you can try to keep everyone together as a group as much as possible.

Planning a Romantic Golf Vacation

Romantic vacations usually involve a beach, or majestic castles, or tropical temperatures. Activities like sightseeing, horseback riding, and wine tastings are also usually on the list. But for many couples, there’s another activity you can add to the agenda: golfing! Those looking to stay in the states for their couple’s golf getaway can always come to Deer Creek Golf & Country club, which is nestled in the South Florida sunshine just minutes from the ocean. Spend your mornings on the golf course and your evenings beachside–what could be better?

Golf is a relaxing game that can help you and your significant other build trust, support and encouragement. Plus, it’s fun!

If you are looking to book a romantic golf vacation, we have a variety of hotels that we partner with in the Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton areas. Additionally, our golf course is public—so you will not have any trouble booking a tee time. Grab your sweetheart and head south for a vacation you won’t forget!
