We all know that planning a family holiday can be stressful. Even when you think you’ve managed to find an activity that will entertain everyone, finding cheap flights and accommodation is another story! In order to ensure that the children are entertained while still managing to find time for the adults to relax, you’ll need a watertight solution.
You might never have thought of it, but an all-inclusive golf holiday could be the answer to your prayers. Trying a new sport with the whole family is a great way to get everyone outside, active and learning something new, not to mention a golf holiday deal can minimize stress and save you money. Resorts will have onsite activities for children and often provide golf equipment and lessons for the whole family to get involved.
