Not many people will have mentioned the words ‘golf’ and ‘romance’ in the same sentence and got a positive response from their partners. Well, they might be pleasantly surprised to discover that there is a wide range of golf holidays abroad available around the world that specialise not only in the sport itself but also in special spa treatments and soothingly beautiful beaches.
Celtic Manor, Wales
First up on the list has to be Celtic Manor – one of the most exclusive golf courses in Wales. Celtic Manor golf breaks are not any golf breaks, it is a golf resort, which means that it is a perfect getaway to please both halves of a relationship. The hotels boast 4 and 5 star ratings and are complemented by the gastronomic delights in the surrounding restaurants and the refreshing spa treatments in the health club, so romance can be in the air here.
For a spot of romance in the sun, you could head to the five -star Ritz-Carlton Resort in Naples, Florida for some five-star treatment. This place not only has one of the best golf courses in the region, but it also has two of the most prestigious hotels in the region. Moreover, there is an immaculate beach, of which all of the rooms have a view, as well as a top-notch spa.
Sheraton Hacienda del Mar, Mexico
Another romantic golfing experience can be had at the Sheraton Hacienda del Mar resort in Los Cabos. There’s the chance to have a candlelit dinner on the beach, go for a rejuvenating spa at the resort and have one of the most relaxing rounds of golf of your life on the links.
Tivoli Marina Vilamoura, Portugal
Portugal’s Algarve region is perhaps one of the most popular golfing regions in the whole of Europe and the Tivoli Marina Vilamoura resort is one of the reasons why. The facilities are excellent in this particular resort, with top of the range spa treatments and, you might have guessed, a beautiful marina on the doorstep.
La Cala, Spain
Portugal’s neighbour boasts equally magnificent golf resorts that certainly give it a run for its money. One of those resorts is La Cala, which is actually the biggest golf complex in the country. The spa here is, without doubt, worth every penny – and that’s not even mentioning the golf.
