I really enjoy the groups of pals that come to my golf school.  They leave their daily lives behind, laugh a lot, play numerous courses, eat wonderful meals, needle each other, and . . . . repeat the next day.  Lastbash.com has put together a list of courses for people who would love to go on a golf vacation with those same friends, which would have a great time!  Important components of a memorable golf trip include the golf course’s quality, the accommodations, and extra amenities.  I’ve had the good fortune to play many of these. However, several are still on my wish list.  How about you?

If done right, the whole buddies’ golf trip should be the time of your life.

For most duffers, no matter their skill level, the ultimate buddy trip is a golf getaway. Golf trips are all about golf and quality bonding with your buddies.

One of the critical decisions for any golf getaway is the destination.
