Planning a golf vacation? Try Maui

Planning a golf vacation? Try Maui - Sunil Jagani Golf Blog

Golfers love spending time at the course whenever they get the opportunity. However, this comes often at the cost of spending less time with their family. Whenever there is a long weekend or a vacation, you would be planning to spend maximum time at the nearest course. But, at the same time, your family might get their hopes high too and expect you to plan a getaway. If golf is coming between you and your family, golf will be the reason to help you out of it as well – in the form of Golf resorts.

I once heard one of my golfer friend saying, “Golf resorts are a godsend”. I couldn’t but agree more.

Golf resorts are the best thing that ever happened to golf. They are the best definition of an exotic weekend destination coupled with golf-love. And, when it comes to golf resorts, Maui is the first name that comes to my mind.

Maui, the second largest Hawaiian island that is popular for its excellent weather condition has also some first-rate golf resorts.

The weather, scenery, culture, and activities – especially golf, makes Maui one of the most beloved destination for golf players seeking a vacation and some family-time.

While you can be busy with your gears at the course, rest of the family members can get indulged in so many things that Maui resorts has to offer.
