You can play golf on different islands and in different countries on a golf cruises. Popular destinations are the Caribbean, Hawaii, the Mediterranean, the Canaries, Bermuda and Mexico.
Barge cruises also sometimes offer golf-themed trips. In Europe you can cruise on rivers and canals on "golf barging" in several countries, among these are England, Scotland, Ireland and France. A golf barge cruise incorporates a luxurious river cruise with some very good golfing.
Many of the large cruise ships running golf cruises have facilities on board like driving ranges and putting greens, as well as facilities for private lessons. The staff will arrange tee-off times, land transport to the courses, and provide you with clubs, shoes, carts and caddies. On board the golf cruise ship you meet fellow golf enthusiasts and get advice from golf professionals, discuss finer points of golf technique and arrange pairings for the round on the next golf course on the itinerary.
However, for the non-golfer, a golf cruise offers more than just golf. The ships are equipped with the usual cruise-line facilities such as swimming pools, and there will also be non-golf related land visits at each destination.
Most golf cruises can to some extent be tailored to suit your personal needs in terms of length, price and itinerary. Many golf cruises allows you to play golf on different islands, for instance if you go to Hawaii or the Canary Islands, other golf cruises give you the opportunity to sample courses in different countries, like Miami, Jamaica and Puerto Rico - some even give you the opportunity to play in different continents on the same trip.
