Sometimes all you really want to do is get away to some sunshine and just play endless rounds of golf. Whether that’s to get some much needed practice or simply for some relaxation, going abroad to play golf as a single player often has less fuss, stress and cheaper than going in a group. There’s no need to worry about keeping everyone happy with tee-times, accommodation is easier to find and sometimes some peace and quiet is just what your round needs.

So in a bid to help those looking for a golf holiday on their own and in the over 50s age bracket, we’ve compiled some of our favourite destinations that boast luscious greens and plenty of things to do when you’re not on the fairway (or in the bunker!).

Elba Carlota, Fuerteventura

This 4 star resort is positioned right next to the beach and enjoys year round temperatures in the 20 degrees and up making it a sure bet for good weather. The resort itself has huge pools, both for kids and adults so you can make sure that you’re not going to be disturbed.

In regards to things to do, the nearby Thalassao Spa Hesperides is accessible for guests looking to enjoy facilities such as hydrothermal pools, roman baths, Finnish sauna, Jacuzzis, pebble walks and a vitality pool.

In the evenings the Elba Carlota provides direct access to the casino should you be feeling lucky. If not, the resort has a multitude of great restaurants and bars for those just looking to take in some entertainment and a drink.

Golf wise, the resort provides unlimited access to the stunning Fuerteventura Golf Club. There are free buses running to and from the golf club daily. If you book your single golf holiday through Golf de la Luz however, you could opt for a full week’s worth of tuition and unlimited golf including trolleys and range balls. Offering dates in mid-February, the brilliant offer includes 7 nights’ half board, flights from Gatwick, unlimited golf, tuition, transfers and baggage for your golf bag all for just £1,195.

Dolce CampoReal Golf Resort & Spa, Portugal

Set on the Silver Coast, this 5 star hotel is golfer’s paradise. Not only does the hotel provide 151 spacious and designed rooms but offers a further 126 external residences for single travellers who want the space of an apartment or townhouse to do their own thing. Sat nestled on the golf course, the views are spectacular throughout and with an outdoor infinity pool, indoor poor, gym, football pitch and tennis courts there’s plenty to keep you busy when you’re not on the course.

The Dolce CampoReal has three restaurants and two bars all serving food throughout the day with a menu to cater for everyone. Booking via Golf de la Luz provides a wide range of flexible options such as half board with unlimited drinks from 5pm-11pm each day (including wine with dinner).

On the course, golfers can enjoy a challenging par 72 18 hole course. Voted recently as the best golf resort in Portugal (Brand Magazine), visitors can book a holiday with unlimited golf for their entire stay and enjoy discounted buggy prices. There’s a driving range on-site for those looking to refine their swing and the pro-shop is well equipped with everything you could possibly need.

Gloria Golf Resort

Located in the Belek area of Turkey, the 5 star Gloria Golf Resort offers warm weather and sunshine nearly all year round. As one of the most reputable and prestigious resorts in Turkey, the Gloria comes with everything you’d expect – outdoor and indoor swimming pools, plenty of activities, a fully equipped spa and 8 restaurants all offering international cuisine from Italian through to Ottoman.

It’s the golf options however that make this one of the best for single travellers. With 3 on-site courses, two are 18-hole and 1 has 9 holes, so there are plenty of golfing options to play and not get bored playing the same course. For those who book with Golf de la Luz, we can promise special all inclusive packages that include VIP treatment, free bottled water before every game, free shuttle transfers between hotel and clubhouse and preferential early tee times.

Whatever your choice, as a single traveller its key that you find a great resort that has plenty to do in the evening but also offers relaxation and calm in the likes of pools, spas and restaurants. Our tuition packages make a great way for single travellers to really test themselves whilst on holiday and make the most of their golf trip away.
