If you’re a golf aficionado then you’ll undoubtedly be loving life out on the course at the minute (form depending, obviously). All this great weather we’ve been experiencing has led to unrivalled playing conditions and the courses really are in exceptional shape- something ideal for low scoring!

However, unfortunately, we are paying for it as the cost of green fees remains constantly high. Did you know that at Pebble Beach in America, 18 holes will now cost you $495 per person? In addition, if you choose to hire clubs while you’re there instead of taking your own then you’ll be charged an additional $95 per round.

So, if you fancy a round of golf at Pebble Beach and you forget to take your clubs it will cost you $32.78 (£21.10) per hole! And that’s without a buggy!

Admittedly, Pebble Beach is a magnificent course and many of us can only dream of playing it. In the UK, however, we see a similar story and, if you wanted to play a round of golf on a corporate day in the summer at Wentworth, it would set you back £210 per person (£11.67 per hole)!

For this reason, if you want cheap golf then you should seriously consider visiting Spain. With cheap flights provided by a number of airlines, getting to Spain for a golf break has never been easier.

In addition, the standard of the courses on offer is simply sublime. Places like La Torre, La Quinta and La Manga all offer high quality while maintaining affordability. The most expensive round at La Torre for example, is €80 (€4.44 per hole) and they publically state that discount is almost always on offer!

This quality and affordability is even more startling when we consider that these courses are on the Nicklaus Golf Trail and have been designed by Jack Nicklaus! For this reason, Spain is the obvious choice for golf lovers everywhere.

If you’re going on a golf holiday for the first time, however, you’ll have to make sure that you’re dressed appropriately as the etiquette at your destination may be different to your local course. If this is the case then try visiting somewhere like My Golf Locker for ways that you can look highly fashionable out on the course.
