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…
