Many people prefer the freedom that staying in a villa rather than a hotel gives them. By staying in a villa you are not subject to the same rigid timings for things such as mealtimes and have more choice on what to eat and drink!
But in a lot of cases, high-quality villas are often miles away from the golf course itself. You end up spending more time travelling between the two than on the greens!
So, the perfect solution is to stay in a golf villa on a golf resort!
This was you have the choice to use the Hotels facilities if you would like, whilst having the freedom to come and go as you please.
We have focused on some of the most popular destinations where you can find quality villa accommodation within a stone’s throw from the golf course!
