Let’s just get this out of the way: When it comes to golf, I don’t know boo. My husband speaks of it being “a mental game.” I see it more as an excuse to escape home for a few hours, drink beer with the boys and conveniently be absent from diaper duty.
And I get that.
It’s like me going on a spa vacation with my girlfriends. He’d have zero interest. So he gets the golf pass, because eventually I’ll be using mine to cleanse my clogged pores and release the tension from my aching writer’s back.
I’d actually love it if he went away to a Myrtle Beach vacation home like this condo rental. The two-bedroom villa is between the 9th and 11th fairways of the Greg Norman golf course inside Barefoot Resort, along with access to three others: the Fazio, Dye and Love courses. It’s a great option for dudes who’ll know they’ll get grief at home for spending too much money–It’s only $60 a night for the remainder of the month.
For men whose golf getaways are serious business, enter this La Quinta vacation villa for $375 a night. Prestige is this property’s middle name thanks to an enviable location on the 7th hole of a Jack Nicklaus-designed course inside a gated community of PGA West. The 1,700-square-foot home is very resort-like in feel with gorgeous linens and upgraded appliances, but let’s get to the stuff you care about: The golf cart, which is waiting for you in the garage, to whisk you away to your perfect game.
Free to take a vacation, but not without the family?
Compromise on this Hilton Head vacation home. Situated on the Barony Golf Course, the three-bedroom house for $230 to $250 a night makes toting your tots easy. There’s a Pack-n-Play, high chair and tennis lessons for the kids. But back to the golf.
This house comes with a cart, too. Although before tee time, you know Junior will want to take a spin. Let him.
