Your Golfing Type

  • The Golfing Enthusiast with a Serious Handicap

This golfer plans their whole holiday around the love of the game. Making sure that the rest of the family is occupied (which is super easy with luxury villa rental and a full staff), they tend to congregate in and around the club-house, comparing score cards, writing notes and beating themselves up about that ‘totally uncharacteristic’ flaw in their short game.

  • The Genuine Professional

This golfer plays for a living, is maybe high-profile and is constantly on tour. They want the much-needed relaxation and privacy that Caribbean villa rental brings, but still need to be within easy access of professional-standard courses for practice purposes.

  • The ‘Group-Loving’ Golfer

This golfer regularly takes the opportunity to organise group getaways to exotic lands, where both enthusiasts and part-timers can come together to enjoy a round or two. Luxury villa rental is perfect for the ‘Group-Loving Golfer’ as the open plan layouts and large amounts of space mean that you can extend the party all the way from the course to the pool.

  • The Part Timer

Keen to recline on beaches, explore jungles, experience culinary delights and adventure in general, this golfer also likes to squeeze in a game of golf during their time away. The benefits of luxury villa rental appeal to this golfer as they can easily divide their time between many pursuits.
