If you dream of a different tee in every country, without bursting the budget, a little research will go a long way. It is possible to save money without sacrificing quality, so before you head off on your round the world trip spend some time planning and preparing in order to achieve the most cost effective yet satisfying golfing trip possible.

When looking for golf offers the internet comes into its own. Decide how long you wish to travel for, which countries you wish to experience and how many games of golf you wish to play. Take your overall travel costs off your budget to discover how much you have remaining for golf.

Golf your budget

With this knowledge you can then start looking for golf courses within your budget. Golf on a shoestring does not mean relinquishing quality for cost; it is entirely possible to find decent but less known courses at a fraction of the price of well-known publicized courses. It is also possible to find golf offers as part of a package, including dinner, bed and breakfast, often with a game on both days of your stay. These golf offers can provide incredible value and can come in at as little as £49 for two games of golf, bed and breakfast.

Pack for the game

Make sure you organize a golfing survival pack as there are a few less bulky items that will fit snugly in your case that you just cannot do without. Ensure you take a few balls – having to keep buying new ones becomes expensive and if you look after them they can last the whole trip, if you are lucky. A small pack of tees, a golfing glove, marker for your balls, pencil and pitch mark repairer are the other essentials for any golfing traveller.

Bring your own clubs?

The decision whether to take your own clubs on a shoestring tour has to be made after calculating your overall budget. They are also fairly bulky items and fitting them into a backpack is an impossible task. It is worth considering the added cost of hiring but weigh this up against the cost of airline charges for taking golf clubs on board. Countries and clubs tend to have different prices, as do each airline and you many find the quality of hired clubs varies enormously. Within certain countries, such as golf in Portugal, low cost rental is available per day from specialized companies and they will deliver free to any address.


Preparation and planning is the key to shoestring golfing trips worldwide. Do your research before you go, look for the best courses at the lowest prices possible, book before hand and work out your budget carefully to experience one of the best the best golf breaks of your life.
