Five Reasons a Golf Getaway is the Perfect Gift for Dad

Father’s Day gifts get harder and harder to buy the older you and your dad get. He doesn’t need any more homemade ashtrays, ties, cologne or even golf shirts (sorry NikeGolf, Greg Norman Golf, Cutter & Buck, Under Armour and the like, but it’s mostly true).

So why not create a resort golf experience for him? Here are the five top reasons to take your dad on a golf vacation:

1)    You give him what he really needs: a break from day-to-day responsibilities

2)    A golf package is a concrete way to show your dad that you are really grateful for him and his role in your life.

3)    You get to spend really quality one-on-one time with him doing what you both love… playing golf courses you’ve never played; trying out that new golf club you got him for his birthday; or just catching up in a relaxing, non-hurried way

4)    Not only will you show him you care and get to visit, but you’ll also create lasting memories in the process… and maybe even start a new tradition in your family.

5)    The fifth and bonus reason is that your mom will also get a gift when you squire your dad away to a golf resort… either she will love the downtime by herself or she’ll negotiate her own getaway. Whether it’s a beach golf vacation or girlfriend’s spa getaway, she makes out like a bandit.
