How to Give a Golf Trip as a Gift
If you’re looking to give the gift of the golf trip of a lifetime, Worldwide Golf Adventures can help you plan the perfect trip for friends, family, or colleagues. But if you’re trying to keep it a surprise, how can you plan a trip that will fit the needs of everyone in your group without giving it away?
We have plenty of solutions to the surprise golf trip planning problem!
Find Out the Minimum Info
You can plan a trip without giving away everything or getting too invasive in your questioning. In order to plan a trip, we need to know:
Approximate group size — This should include a breakdown of golfers and non-golfers so we can determine an ideal destination.
Length of trip — You can guess how long your group would be willing to go. 7 nights is the average trip, but we have done trips as small as 4 nights to as large as a month.
Per person budget — We’re here to offer advice on when to travel, where to play, and where to stay, but that depends on how much you’re willing to spend per person.
With all of these details, we can start planning the trip and fill in information after the gift has been given.
Get Feedback from Other Potential Group Members
You don’t have to give away the surprise of the trip to the gift recipient while collecting information. If you’re planning the trip for your spouse, for instance, you can talk to other people who will be traveling with them (friends or family members) and get input from them on where the group wants to go. Unless you’re paying for everyone in the group, others are going to want to have a say in the planning process.
If you know this info from hearsay or casual conversation, it can help us plan the perfect trip as a complete surprise:
Preferred dates — You may not know the dates everyone in your party has free, but a general time frame can be helpful, especially if you’re planning a birthday or anniversary present.
Bucket list courses — If your spouse or family member has mentioned how badly they want to play The Old Course at St. Andrews or Old Head in Ireland, that will give us a direction to go.
Favorite pastimes — We also help plan cultural tours, historical trips, and other excursions, so if your gift recipient is a fan of whisky, wine, or wildlife, let us know!
Any of this information will help us customize the trip further to make it even more special. We can also accommodate both golfers and non-golfers to ensure everyone has the trip of a lifetime.
Buy Gift Certificates
It can be hard to plan a trip without getting input from everyone in the party — trust us, we know. If you aren’t sure when or where your trip recipient wants to go and can’t find out the details without ruining the surprise, you can purchase a gift certificate. Simply tell us how much you want to spend, then give the certificate to the lucky recipient and have them call us to plan the trip. We’ll put the amount of the gift certificate toward their final bill.
The golf trip of a lifetime is an ideal gift for the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, or to congratulate a colleague on a job well done. Ready to give the gift of adventure? Get in touch today for a free quote!
