The most obvious reason to become a member of a golf resort is to have access to its golf facilities. Many golf resorts around the world are restricted to members only and have a strict guest policy. Palm Springs Golf, for example, is located within minutes of the airport, luxury shopping and luxury hotels, so part of its appeal is also its location. Clubhouses, amenities and events are other benefits of membership.
Here are three reasons why you may want to join a golf resort.
The golf courses at golf resorts are designed to be unique from each other, so for the avid golfer, each course presents a new set of challenges. Golf course designers tend to incorporate unique nature elements presented to them like coastal views, desert plains and greenery. Once a golfer has found a challenging course that consists of an enjoyable scenery, it makes sense to become a member. Members enjoy preferred tee time options as well as VIP course amenities.
The Other Facilities
Golf resort members also enjoy access to the other on-ground facilities like overnight accommodations, restaurants and spas. Additionally, resorts are open to renting the facilities to members for weddings, family reunions and fundraising events. If needed, catering, party planning and parking services can be provided for a fee.
Resorts recognize that not all members are avid golfers. Therefore, they provide other services and amenities, too. Many clubs include spas, exercise facilities and activities, like tennis. They also tend to host well-known tournaments and charity gatherings.
Resorts are often built in areas that double as great vacation spots. It is often said that many business deals are made on a golf course because the environment allows for the striping a traditional business etiquette for a more relaxed ambiance. All parties can be more honest with each other and reach agreements without the pressures of an office.
For members who are not golfers, though, golf resorts are a great place to spend the day outdoors. Whether the resort is located on the coast, surrounded by trees or in the desert, it will be away from the bustle of congested cities and within the freshest air.
The avid golfer will enjoy having access to a resort’s golf course for the golfing alone. Golf resort membership also provides access the resort’s other facilities usually situated in desirable locations.
