The last several weeks I have talked about different bucket list trips we have done. This week it is time to talk about a dream trip. About a month ago I was talking with a friend about bucket lists trips and we got onto the topic of golf trips. By the time we were done that evening we had come up with four different trips.
One of the trips we talked about was golfing in Mexico. The nice thing about traveling to Mexico for golf is there are a lot of courses around all inclusive resorts. If your significant other is not a golfer, they have access to beaches, spas, water sports and a ton of other activities while you are off golfing. Most of the courses have been rebuilt over the last several years recovering from hurricanes. Finally, something to remember is that the courses in Mexico are not as busy as U.S. courses so you are not as rushed moving around the course.
Another idea we came up with is a trip to play courses that have hosted PGA Majors. Aside from The Masters, most of the PGA Majors are being played on public courses. The cool thing is that you can make this trip happen all over the country. For example, you can go to California and play Pebble Beach and Tory Pines. You can head to Wisconsin and play Erin Hills, Blackwolf Run and Whistling Straits. There are course up and down the East Coast such as Beth Page in New York.
My friend came up with what I think is a unique trip idea. The first half of the trip starts with a flight to Dubai. He would spend a week playing world class golf courses and eating at world class restaurants. After a week in Dubai then it is off to Europe for a week of down hill skiing in the Alps.
Finally, there is my dream golf trip. I call it Living the History of Golf. This trip involves returning to the origin of golf, Scotland. I would play as many of the British Open courses as possible.
Tell me where your Golf Bucket List Trip would take you.
Until the next adventure ……
