More Ways to Add Romance to Your Golf Adventure
Clearly, planning the golf trip of a lifetime is one of the most romantic gestures you can make. But why stop there? We’ve got a few great ideas for adding even more romance to your golf adventure. Here are a few additional ideas to spice up your next itinerary.
Set Up a Personalized Whiskey Tasting
Most people may think of wine as the liquor of love, but whiskey can warm the heart just as well. Scheduling a private tour of a whiskey distillery can add a spark of surprise as well. Many of the distilleries in Scotland, Ireland, and Northern Ireland offer personalized tours with extra perks like lunch or dinner along with an in-depth tour of the grounds. Or just have a simple tasting with the owner or master distiller, who can explain the subtleties of their techniques.
Stay at a B&B
Bed and breakfasts are known for being more intimate than hotels. They also offer more individualized stays, including specially decorated rooms and personalized service. If you’re celebrating a romantic occasion like a birthday or anniversary, the owners of a B&B will be thrilled to make the experience special for you and your love. They’ll also give you plenty of privacy, too.
Visit a Chocolatier
There’s a reason chocolate is a common gift for a lover on Valentine’s Day — it’s rumored to be an aphrodisiac. Plus, it’s delicious! Stopping in at a local chocolatier after a round of golf is a great way to add a little romance to your trip. Many chocolate sellers are also cafes, bakeries, or pastry shops, so you can grab a bit of dessert and enjoy a little time sharing something sweet together. The Burns Sweet Shop in St. Andrews is known for its old-fashioned feel, while the Chocolate Tree in Edinburgh offers guided tastings in their boutique.
Add a Trip to France
Paris is the City of Love, and if you’re already on that side of the Atlantic, there’s good reason to make a detour to France. With excellent golf courses on top of food, culture, and wine, France is a perfectly romantic addition to any European or British golf trip. Thanks to inexpensive flights across the English channel, adding a weekend stay in Paris is an easy way to add romance to the end of your golf adventure of a lifetime.
