Known for their excellent singles holidays in the UK and overseas with ClubSolos offering hotels and yachts exclusively for their guests, Solos Holidays actually started life as a golf holidays company over 40 years ago. So they know a thing or two about what makes a singles’ golf break successful, whether you are a beginner or have an impressive handicap. And of course, everyone who joins one of these trips has golf in common, so that makes for easy conversation and like-minded companions.
Good to know about golf holidays
Every Solos’ golf holiday has a dedicated tour manager to ensure everything runs smoothly: evening get togethers are planned, tee-times are confirmed, fun, social and team scoring competitions are organised and any logistical issues are sorted out. And every guest has their own room, either double or twin, for sole occupancy, so if you’d like a little peace and quiet, you can have it. Many of hotels you stay in have swimming pools and spas, ideal for a little extra R and R.
Golf clubs hire can be arranged on some breaks so do be sure to ask. And buggies, trolleys etc can often be hired locally too: check your chosen holiday for full details. Take a look at your household insurance policy to see if your golf clubs are insured whilst out of the country.
Golf holiday festival weeks
These take place in the spring and autumn in the UK and overseas, bringing players together for three days of friendly team competitions, followed by two days of an individual Stableford competition to find the week’s overall winner for both men and women. A great way to polish up your game before aiming for the top of the leader board.
Golf holidays in Greece
The island of Corfu, lush and very pretty, offers reasonably experienced golfers rounds at the Corfu Golf Club. It’s not for beginners, however no handicap is needed. You’ll stay at a quality beachside hotel with water sports and a spa, on a half board basis where there’s choice of three restaurants.
