Anthony Webber. Editor-at-Large. iGTN. Experiential golf cruises offer you the best bang for your buck, and it’s true, you only unpack once on a golf cruise!
Cruise fares include nightly accommodations and daily meals, as well as free nightly entertainment.
Golf shore excursion packages include transfers, pre-reserved tee times, cart rentals and a bucket of warm-up balls.
By comparison, a one-night hotel room at the Old Course Hotel in St Andrews will cost you around three hundred and eighty dollars. Now add a rental car, breakfast, lunch and dinner, a night out and you’re at seven hundred and sixty dollars.
A 12-night cruise could cost you as little as three thousand dollars – divide three thousand by 12 and your cruise per diem is two hundred and fifty dollars.
So splurge on your next golf cruise – your savings could pay for an upgrade to a luxurious Suite.
Here are five golf cruises worth splurging on.
