1. Work out your priorities.

6. Have a budget in mind.

If you are going with a group of friends make sure you ask if they have a price in mind and if anyone is after a single room, it can make quite a difference to the cost.

7. Do you want to be in a town or a resort?

Resort Both have their advantages. In a town you can stroll to restaurants in the evening and absorb some of the local atmosphere, in a resort everything is close to hand and you can concentrate on your game.

8. Be honest

Be realistic with yourself about your physical strength. Will you need a buggy if you play four days in a row? If so, check with your tour operator if there are buggies available and if you can book them in advance, remember it will add to the cost.

9. Golf buddies

10. Look at the weather patterns!

No one can exactly predict the weather conditions. If a holiday is surprisingly cheap it might be that it will be too hot for golf! Just imagine…
