If you've ever wanted to introduce the rest of your family to the pleasures of golfing (aka getting the chance to enjoy your own holiday as well as making the kids happy), the experts at A Golfing Experience have a few ideas that might help sweeten the deal.
Take the Family to Play Golf in America
We’ll let you in to a secret. The trick is not to try and ram a set of clubs down your family’s throats (metaphorically speaking, of course), but to choose a place that not only caters to your personal golfing whims, but also provides a good range of other activities and attractions. When it comes to golf in America, there’s a great range of destinations from which to choose.
One of our top recommendations for family holidays is the wonderful Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa – and, just like the song, it’s set deep in the heart of Texas.
Omni Barton Creek
After a recent 0 million facelift, Omni Barton Creek most definitely has something to shout about. This fabulously relaxed resort, despite being laidback and carefree, places you right in the lap of luxury. Nestled into the gently undulating landscape of Austin, the 4,000-acre resort is a true golfing mecca (with four championship courses) – but it has plenty of other strings to its bow to keep the rest of the crew happy.
So, what else can you do here apart from enjoying the award-winning golf courses? Plenty! Try these on for size:
Swim in any of the four pools
Have a spa day on the rooftop deck
Work up a sweat in the fitness center
Walk, run or cycle
Learn how to play golf – no matter what age!
When the kids start with the I’m hungry song, they’ll have plenty of choices, and if you want to try out some fine dining as a treat, the resort has you covered there as well. With seven onsite dining establishments from which to choose, you can go for a week and never eat in the same place twice! From the casual Velvet Joe’s Coffee House, to the upmarket Blind Salamander and the family-friendly Nopales, everyone’s a winner.
The resort has easy access to the historic city of Austin, so when it comes to getting out and about there’s a lot to keep you happy – even if you would rather be playing golf. Some of the child-friendly attractions include:
The Thinkery Children’s Museum
The Salt Lick (kids find this fascinating)
Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum (yes, it’s even fun for the younger members)
The Governor’s Mansion
The University of Texas Tower
Capitol Complex Visitors Center
So, if you fancy a holiday to play golf in America and you’re looking for somewhere that the whole family will be happy with, book into the Omni Barton Creek and watch your handicap drop and your popular parent points rise!
