Golf is known for being one of the most relaxing sporting activities a person can partake in. Many may argue golf is not a sport, but the skill and precision needed to get a hole in one begs to differ. With golf’s esteemed attire, carts, and social nature, it is one of the most luxurious sporting activities to take up – but what makes golfing such a luxurious experience?
Golf courses put in the work to create a luxury experience for all members and guests alike. If you are considering joining a golf club, consider the luxurious amenities you will likely be afforded next time you pick up your club.
One of the features that most golf courses offer is alcohol service. Golf clubs obtain the necessary certifications to sell and serve alcohol. In California, golf courses will need RBS training and development to become RBS certified to serve alcohol, and ensure an even safer, more enjoyable drinking experience for club members.
There are employees assigned to bringing out bar carts so that members can enjoy alcohol and often a club restaurant for more refined dining needs.
Part of the luxury of a golf club is connecting with like-minded people. You no longer go to the driving range to hit ball after ball endlessly. Now you can go to a golf club with friends, socialize, and have some friendly competition.
While a golf club is a social space, the reality is that not just anyone can join a club. Golf clubs come with an air of exclusivity that make members feel like they belong, and creates a special, unique atmosphere that only a select few can share.
Many golf courses enhance member experience with their clubhouse, the building where members and their guests can sign in, meet, and enjoy food and drink. Luxurious golf courses are known for having expansive clubhouses with fine dining options for after a game, or to meet up with fellow members.
Golf courses will often have driving ranges and, while ranges were once a solo venture, now many encompass massive seating areas where people can watch you. That said, that doesn’t mean you’ll have to practice in public.
Golf clubs known their members want to practice undisturbed, which is why many have state of the art practice facilities where members can develop their skills. These areas also act as a social space where members can meet and give one another tips.
While a locker room may seem like an archaic concept, golf clubs make locker rooms a space for socialization and respite. They are often luxurious and comfortable, so members can have peace of mind knowing their things are being kept safe.
