Best Winter Golf Holidays

with Your Golf Travel

Why go on a winter sun golf holiday?

The New Year marks the start of the two coldest months on the UK calendar, the fair-weather golfers will be wrapped up indoors planning their summer trips while those dedicated to spending time on the course will be gracing the tee box with so many layers they can barely swing.

But it doesn't have to be this way.

While there are several fantastic UK Winter Golf Breaks, the idea of swapping the thermal vest for a t-shirt and some shades is enough to convince even the most dedicated of golfers to get some winter sun.

What is the best thing about going on a winter golf break?

We asked some Your Golf Travel customers about what they thought the best reasons to go on a golf trip in the winter was, the weather and course conditions were the top picks!

In January and February, the average temperature in the UK is 5 degrees celsius while somewhere like Morocco is 23 degrees, making it no surprise that 78% of golfers choose the weather as the best thing about taking a winter golf holiday.

Of course there are many more perks to jetting off in January, whether its avoiding the busy backlog on the fairways or those dreaded winter greens laden with divots and long grass. Perhaps you owe it to yourself to not lose your touch round the course - if you continue to play throughout the winter months, in the sunshine, you’ll be more prepared than anyone on the tee-box in the summer.
