Oregon, a state in the United States, can be your ideal golfing spot to make the most of your holiday. The state is a golf course gallery, widely dotted across its expanse, totalling 208. 

But while virtually every golf course can be ideal, a particularly state-of-the-art destination can be the Bandon Dunes, which have about five golf courses that closely resemble the traditional and unique cache of Scottish Links. This spot is located 10 minutes away from the seaside town of Bandon and 35 minutes away from the Southwest Oregon Regional Airport in North Bend.

You can also stay at Bandon Dunes lodges, including Chrome Lake Lofts, The Inn, and Lily Pond, with incredible sea views and best-value services. 

4. The Algarve, Portugal

The Algarve has recently become a sought-after destination for golfers who want to combine their passion for the game with vacations. The area’s incredible history, stunning cliff-backed beaches, and picturesque red-roofed village houses are the highlights of everyone’s golfing holiday. Moreover, the spectacular golf courses rolling out through the province will make it hard to decide where to go. 

The province has some of the best beaches worldwide, with undulating, picture-perfect greens and fairways, incredible landscapes, and fascinating seaside views.

As you wind up your day of golfing, you can rest at some of the best accommodations in the Algarve, including the Hilton Vilamoura, Vila Vita Parc Resort, and Four Seasons Vilamoura Resorts. 


While Liverpool has some of the best golfing spots to make your holidays memorable, you can still go beyond and taste some of the world’s best. But as you make these plans, make early accommodation bookings and research the best times of the year to have your golf holiday at each destination. That’ll offer much-needed peace of mind and enable you to maximise your golfing holidays.
