Golfers are a funny lot. They are obsessed more than most other hobbyists. They are also ruthless about cutting costs. In locker rooms and first tees across the country, hackers are on the lookout for daily golf deals and local golf deals. These cheap golf deals could be on anything from 60% off the driver in the pro shop window to golf holiday deals at rock bottom prices.
While I could point you to many resources online for saving money on a new shoulder bag or finding the latest Rory Mcilroy Nike shoe for less than £20, the truth is that these kinds of items will only save you a small amount of money. The "big savings" come on the big-ticket items such as finding the best golf deals on travel. If you are thinking of taking your game abroad this year, saving on your resort, green fees, club hire and lessons from the PGA pro can mean the difference between being able to have one holiday or two this year.
There is one place in the world where saving money and shots is as much a part of the daily life as the sunshine. Golf deals Portugal or, more specifically, golf deals Algarve are some of the best you will find in Europe. There are a few reasons why there are so many savings to be found in the southern region of Portugal. Its popularity as a golf destination is due to:
This pedigree as the number 1 destination in Europe for a winter vacation and the wealth of options for all players leads to many deals hidden in the rough.
Top golf deals can be found in a variety of places. Certainly local newspapers and magazines frequently display offers for hackers. The two avenues that we recommend exploring are the oldest way for humans to obtain information (people and word of mouth) and the newest (the internet). You could begin by asking the other members at your club, speaking to players from other clubs while you are playing competitions and visiting travel websites. The beauty of these websites is that travel has been turned into a consumer product so you can browse different options, compare prices and choose the one you want. Without leaving your home, you can plan your trip and have it all booked in a matter of minutes.
As the weather and the playing season are starting to warm up, late golf deals are popping up online and are being snapped up just as quickly. There is certainly a "first mover advantage" for those who start book their getaway in the spring. If you leave things until the summer months, you could end up missing a great last minute deal.
This year could be the year that you enjoy hitting drives in perfect conditions at a discount. Just think, the money you save could go towards a new set of irons or saving up for visit to the British Open.
