Packing for a Turkish Golf Holiday
If you’ve never been on a golf vacation before, packing a golf vacation might be a little bit of a fight to find out what to take. If you’re one of those golfers who always forget something, this handy list of what to pack for a golf vacation might just be helpful to you.
When travelling overseas, our fundamental packing list is always a must, but for a golf vacation, but there are always a few other things to consider. The main thing to keep in mind is that temperatures may vary and you need to be prepared with the correct clothes or it might involve a costly shopping journey.
What clothes to take?
If you’re out of season playing golf overseas, plan for all eventualities, as sunshine is not always guaranteed. Waterproofs and windcheaters can be filled into your golf bag allowance and save you a lot of cash if the weather changes as it can be more costly in resort golf stores. Most golf courses are expected to wear collared shirts, long pants or long shorts and smooth spike golf shoes for golfers. Most golf hotels, including 5-star resorts, will be relaxed in the evening, but just check as some of the 5-star resorts may require more formal wear for some of the dining rooms.
What shoes to take?
Most golf courses overseas involve smooth spike golf shoes to verify the course you’re playing. It is also nice to ensure that the course has no constraints on the length of shorts and lengthy soaks as some may have an old-fashioned golf clothing rule. For off-course, you’ll need some casual shoes to go to the golf course because at the end of the day, some classes will wash and store your shoes. Flip flops for the pool or spa, smart casual shoes in the evening are other footwear to consider.
What accessories to take?
If you’re a golfer and you’re using a GPS, remember to download and pack the courses you’re playing in your handheld luggage. Here are a few additional things to consider ;
- Sunglasses, sun hat, sunscreen, insect repellent
- Books for reading, Kindle,
- I pod, I pod Speakers,
- Pen and paper
- Sun lotion, mosquito repellent or bite lotion, after the sun
- Swimming suit if the hotel has a spa or swimming pool
