A USA Staycation in Magnificent Monterey

No doubt you were absorbed by the recent US Open and incredible Pebble Beach Golf Links? With some of the best courses the USA has to offer, and near perfect year-round weather, the Monterey peninsula is the perfect destination for a golf trip. Aside from Pebble, which can be a tad expensive, there are some other fantastic courses to choose from. Whether you’re looking to test your skills on the famed Poppy Hills course or enjoy the historic Bayonet and Blackhorse layouts, or perhaps even go inland to the majestic Carmel Valley Ranch, you will not be disappointed. For a real treat, the highly acclaimed Pasatiempo is also a must visit when in the area. The incredible scenery, wonderful climate, beautiful accommodations and outstanding golf courses in Monterey, makes for a memorable golf vacation at affordable prices.

Stay and Play at Kiawah

For those looking to take in some of the east coast’s most-loved courses, resorts don’t get much better than Kiawah Island. The iconic Ocean Course played host to the infamous Ryder Cup of 1991 and the 2012 PGA Championship, with other resort courses including the; Oak, Turtle, Osprey and Cougar offering contrasting yet enjoyable layouts, making them the perfect addition to any trip. With two beach resorts located perfectly along ten miles of Atlantic coastline, all villas have unbelievable scenic or ocean views, creating the ideal home away from home for your group throughout your stay.


Fabulous Fife, Golf in St Andrews

If you’ve ever dreamt of crossing the Swilcan Bridge, teeing off towards the R&A clubhouse and striding up the most famous double fairway in golf then it’s time to make the pilgrimage to St. Andrews and follow in the footsteps of the game’s greats, from Old Tom and Bobby Jones to Jack and Tiger.


Playing the Old Course and staying in the heart of this magical town is the pinnacle for most golfers, but it’s just one of many great and historic golf courses in Scotland, where the likes of Kingsbarns and, further north, Carnoustie Championship Course, also await.

It is easy to forget that there are five courses directly adjacent to the Old – the New, Jubilee, Eden, Strathtyrum and Balgove. All have positive qualities – but it is the Old Tom Morris-designed New Course that is the highlight of the Old’s sisters. It is a somewhat ironic name – would be like calling North by Northwest a new movie – but the oldest new course in the world is a fantastic test. For many locals, it is their favorite, and it’s easy to see why. Just yards from the Old Course, the New is a true examination of links golf.

Golfbreaks offer packages throughout Scotland, from Cruden Bay and Royal Dornoch in the North, through to Turnberry and Royal Troon on the West Coast. With an abundance of Championship Courses as well as locally-loved hidden gems, there’s a vacation in Scotland to meet all requirements. However, if you’re heading across to the Home of Golf for the first time, there’s no better place to start than the Auld Grey Toon of St Andrews.

The Wild Atlantic Way, West Coast of Ireland


If you’re looking for a concentration of incredible links courses, you won’t find many areas stronger than the South West Coast of Ireland. With Tralee, Waterville, Ballybunion, Lahinch and Doonbeg all within easy driving distance, you can make a large dent in any bucket list with a week-long stay in this golfing paradise. Spectacular golf courses are intrinsically woven into the natural landscape, shaped by nature and the ages more than architects and machines.

A region not only blessed with outstanding golf, we also suggest exploring all the enchantments on offer along the Wild Atlantic Way. Take it slow along scenic routes or dive into scaling a sheer cliff face, surfing or hiking up the many mountains. You’ll find the Ireland you’ve always imagined along this wind-swept coastline.

For those looking to maximise the liveliness on their trip, Galway is an action-packed city, filled with traditional Irish pubs and bar, with live music a central feature of each watering hole! Golfbreaks also strongly recommend Killarney as a base for their trip. Centrally located and on the shores of Loch Leane, this traditional town provides plenty of opportunity for those golfers hoping to further familiarize themselves with the Emerald Isle.
