Whether you’re looking to explore some of the more remote parts of the planet, or simply enjoy the tranquil bliss offered by island-based breaks, we’ve got a destination to suit every group.

These stunning getaways can allow you to truly discover somewhere new, whilst also taking in some incredible golfing layouts. So why not take a trip away from the mainland on your next golf holiday and check out some of our favourite island golf destinations below.

Paradis Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, Mauritius

Constance Belle Mare Plage, Mauritius

The island’s subtropical location in the Indian Ocean makes the UK winter a fabulous time to visit, escaping the rain and snow for something altogether more enjoyable. There are regular and direct flights which makes travel to Mauritius easier than you may think – although be sure to get these booked in early to maximise potential savings.

The Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are fast becoming one of our customers’ most sought-after destinations. Just 4 hours from the UK, and with a consistently warm climate throughout the year, it’s the perfect alternative to mainland Spain or Portugal for golfers looking to explore somewhere new on their next trip.

Arabella Golf Mallorca, Palma

Melia Calvia Beach, Majorca

Palma itself has plenty to keep golfers busy away from the course in the evenings, however, those that really want to experience some of Europe’s best nightlife might want to scope out accommodation options at Melia Calvia Beach. The hotel itself is just 20-minutes from a handful of courses, but more importantly, is situated on the stunning seafront overlooking Magaluf Bay… a town with plenty to offer well into the early morning!

The Caribbean

Feel like really treating yourself? Why not book your next golf holiday to the Caribbean?! Golf in Barbados and the Dominican Republic is magical, with the bright blue oceans contrasting delightfully with the greenness of the courses. As you’d expect, the weather is spectacular here, although we’d advise going earlier in the year to avoid the rainier season throughout the summer.

Casa de Campo Resort & Villas, Dominican Republic

Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is widely thought of as one of the world’s leading golf resorts, with five-star hospitality coupled with three fabulous Pete Dye-designed courses. Visitors simply must play the iconic ‘Teeth of The Dog’ layout, often included within global Top 100 lists, and offering mesmerising views throughout. There’s a wide array of activities away from the course, as well as 15 restaurants and bars on-site, meaning there’s always somewhere new to explore, even for those on longer holidays!

Royal Westmoreland, Barbados

Il Picciolo Etna Golf Resort & Spa, Sicily

Like all the other islands listed, golf is only half the reason for heading to Madeira! You’ll find incredible views from across the island, and dozens of breath-taking treks through the rocky landscape to provide you with the very best vantage points. The food here is to die for, with the freshest seafood and local wines to enjoy.

Its southerly location within Europe blesses the island with warmer weather throughout the year, so those looking to extend their season with a late-Autumn break should give Madeira some strong consideration for their next overseas golfing adventure.
