Golf hotels provide a play-and-stay experience for golfers. They offer lodging and convenient access to a golf course, along with all the usual facilities of a hotel. On Expedia, you can find golf hotels which have either a 9+ golf course on site, or are located adjacent to a 18+ hole golf course. In the second case, the hotel has a partnership with the golf course and provides guests with conveniences such as a transport shuttles.
What’s offered by each golf hotel is different. Often they offer equipment rentals, caddies, golf carts, and transport to a golf course. Depending on the hotel and room type, this may be included in the rate or available at a surcharge.
Some hotels offer room rates inclusive of green fees or a number of games. You can find out more information about what’s included on the specific property page on Expedia.
Golf resorts are typically larger than golf hotels, with more facilities and a full golf package. At a golf resort you might stay in chalets or in a large estate house, but everything golf is onsite. Green and cart fees are often included in the package price, along with accommodation, meals, and entertainment. An onsite golf shop will sell or rent kit and usually has a good selection of golf shoes and golf-ready outfits.
It’s all here. Arrange lessons, enjoy a few drinks at the ‘19th hole,’ share golfing tales over dinner—some golf resorts welcome and entertain family, too, so everyone has a vacation.
As gathering places for the local well-to-do, country clubs are privately owned and often quite exclusive. Golf hotels, on the other hand, welcome guests from across the globe who want to enjoy golf and the privilege of staying in some stunning places. They may even share the country club’s facilities in some cases.
