Golf holidays have grown greatly in popularity in recent years. It is now possible to go on a golf holiday to most countries in the world due to the growth of the budget airlines and the internet. Many golfers now book a golfing holiday on the internet with direct holiday bookings. One of the most popular golf holiday destinations is France.
Some golfers choose to go and play golf in France as a short break holiday as it is a relatively cheap golfing holiday. Golfers can fly to France on their short break, go on the train or catch a ferry over and drive. When they are on holiday in France there is a tremendous choice of golf courses for them to choose from. Many of these golf courses offer special rates for people coming to France on a golfing holiday.
Spain has many golf courses and is another destination popular with golfers. The attraction of Spain is that people can play golf all the year round when there on holiday. Many families now go on Spanish golf holidays as many of the golf courses in Spain let golfers of all abilities play on them. The Costa Del Sol is a favourite destination for a golf holiday break with many tourists going there for a long weekend of golf. In recent years golf courses in Spain have started to offer mid week golf holiday breaks.
Portugal also now caters for golfing holidays. Like Spain, Portugal is a favourite destination for golf holidays because of its ideal climate. Many holiday makers play golf in the Algarve in Portugal and go there on a golf holiday break. It also attracts families on golfing holidays and gives families the option to play golf or enjoy the beautiful weather that Portugal has to offer.
You can now arrange your golf holidays on line and many people now use the internet to research their golf holidays abroad. In recent years there has been a growth in luxury golf holidays.

With golfers now looking to play golf abroad there has been more demand for other countries to offer golfing breaks. Turkey has responded to this increase in demand for golf holidays by tailor making golf packages.
Cyprus has not normally been regarded as a golf holiday destination.
