Play on these tropical golf courses this winter

It’s been a wonderful summer filled with family, friends, and multiple rounds of golf. However, as the chill of fall begins to set in, the realization your hometown courses will soon be shutting for the season can be a bit of a buzzkill.

If you aren’t content to simply look up golf betting odds at William Hill so you can bet on golf tournaments all winter, then book a holiday so you can play on some tropical golf courses.

Below, we’ll share some getaways which have piqued our interest lately…

1) Black Mountain Golf Club, Hua Hin, Thailand

Want to mix in a round of golf during a getaway to Thailand? If you plan on spending time in the resort city of Hua Hin, book a tee time at Black Mountain Golf Club.

Graced by limestone karsts that have given this course its name, players will be challenged at every turn by a course which has hosted European Tour golfers in the past.

Mixing exceptional beauty with a degree of difficulty which will keep you on your toes, it is no wonder why this course has won numerous awards for being the best course in Asia as recently as 2016.

2) Cabo del Sol (Ocean Course), Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

If you have no desire to play in a place with oppressive levels of humidity, get in some time in on the Cabo del Sol Ocean Course instead.

Situated at the arid tip of Baja California, this Jack Nicklaus designed gem will mesmerize you with its vistas of rolling breakers, saguaro cacti, and swaying palms.

If you can manage to keep your focus on the task at hand, the course itself will require your best effort, with it demanding numerous shots over unforgiving terrain.

3) Abama Golf Club, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain

If you’re seeking out sunshine with just a touch of warmth on your golf holiday this winter, make plans to spend it on Tenerife.

Far south enough to avoid polar air masses, yet cooled enough by cold ocean currents to allow for an eternal spring climate where temperatures average between 18 to 24 degrees Celsius in winter, comfort won’t be a problem when you hit courses such as the Abama Golf Club.

Situated on Tenerife’s Ritz-Carlton resort, the topography of this course varies dramatically from hole-to-hole, making use of a golf buggy essential for all but the most physically fit of golfers.

With waterfalls, views across the ocean to the nearby island of La Gomera, and a challenging layout worthy of the European Tour, it will be a round you will remember for some time to come.

4) Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, Mauritius

Have you ever taken a boat to get to the tee box for the 1st hole? You will when you head out to play a round of golf at Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club in Mauritius.

Located entirely on an islet in Mauritius’ largest lagoon, this course boasts mangrove forests, black volcanic rock outcrops, and the same sugar white beaches which draw hordes of visitors to Mauritius annually.

Designed by Bernhard Langer, it is the ultimate golf experience for those enthralled by all things tropical.
