Pinehurst Golf Vacations Offer More than Just Golf

Aug 17, 2007
Pinehurst golf vacations can offer you a bit more than just playing golf. Although it is not designed to provide the same family entertainment that Myrtle Beach is capable of, Pinehurst offers a choice of golf schools and a choice of entertainment and sports for the younger family members.

Pinehurst is close to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina, and is best known for its golf. With around 5000 inhabitants, Pinehurst has eight main championship golf courses with a total of over forty in the surrounding area. It also boasts several good golf schools and academies, and is an excellent choice for a golf vacation.

Pinehurst Offers a Number of Sporting Options

If your family does not share your love of golf, Pinehurst offers a number of different sporting options. It is an equestrian area, and many equestrian activities are available such as horse riding and lessons, horse jumping and so on. There are many lakes nearby and boating, canoeing and other water sports are offered. Fishing and hunting are popular, but perhaps not with the younger children. They may prefer tennis and there is also carting and bowling nearby.

Should the family want something offering more in the way of holiday fun, Myrtle Beach with its great beaches and funfairs is only a short trip away, and the nightlife at Myrtle Beach is superb.

There's an Affinity between Pinehurst and Scotland

However, it is for the golf that people vacation in Pinehurst, and several packages are available to suit individuals, groups and family groups. The village is where Ben Hogan won his first pro tournament, and the first courses were designed by, or modified by, the great Scottish course designer, Donald Ross. There is great Scottish tradition in Pinehurst any many Scots feel an affinity with the town.

The golf schools in Pinehurst include The Pinehurst Golf Academy where you can make bookings for a golf school vacation from March to November, which is great way of getting some golf in while improving your game. You can use them to get some badly needed tuition in the fall so you are ready for the new season in the spring. It's a great alternative to a summer golfing vacation.

If your whole family loves golf, Pinehurst would make a great vacation and the food is excellent with Japanese and other forms of international cuisine as well as the traditional American fare. You could try some Mexican for a change, though the kids might prefer a burger or hot dog.

Pinehurst Offers Golf Schools for the Beginners

You can get special family deals on the courses, and there are plenty of practice facilities available. The golf schools are good for the complete beginners in your group, but make sure you book places well in advance. The Nike Golf School is a form of camp and is great of the younger children. If you book your youngsters into the Nike camp to learn the game, and yourself and your partner into a Pinehurst resort, you get the best of both.

You both enjoy your golf, while your youngsters enjoy the camp while learning how to play. It won't be long till they are joining you on the big courses on your next golfing vacation. Pinehurst golf vacations have a lot to offer if you think about what there is and use the resources to your best advantage.
