scotland-598473_640

Golf is a popular sport and golfing holidays are a great way of combining a relaxing break with a sporting activity. To ensure that a golfing trip goes well you need to plan ahead. Brochures and websites can look very appealing, but as with any other holiday you need to have done your homework before you commit to a booking.

A golfing holiday can be a good way of trying out a range of golf courses, but choosing just which golf courses can be difficult. This is where a good golf tour operator can be helpful. They will have helped many people to book their golfing holidays and so will have a good idea of which golf courses are popular and why. You might also know friends who have been on golfing holidays and they will be able to tell you which golf courses they found difficult or easy and which ones they found the most enjoyable. If you have golfers on the trip with a range of abilities, you should check if the courses will be suitable for golfers of all standards, or alternatively if there is the option of several golf courses with some that would suit those golfers who are less experienced. If the group consists of experienced golfers only then you may want to go for a championship course that will really challenge their skills.

Taking a break from the wife or the family is a necessity and makes us a better person when we come home. But not all of us have got a partner to come back home to.

Being a mature single person

When we reach our 40’s and 50’s, most people imagine that we have a life partner at home waiting for us. But there are many reasons why some of us are still single in our mature years. Some of us have chosen to be single as a lifestyle, having no orders to take from anyone and living by our own rules. Others have had single life imposed to them, following a divorce or the passing of our previous partner.
