Ladies, have you promised yourself to work on your golf game this year? Maybe you’ve decided it’s finally time to learn to play in 2016? Why not consider joining me on a golfing holiday? It’s a week we’ve designed for ladies only, with a nod to luxury, plenty of small details that will delight, and time spent with a great group of like-minded women. Welcome to golf as you haven’t seen, or experienced it, before. Welcome to SHE golfs.

Imagine a luxurious suite with your own private plunge pool (single occupancy as we know you deserve it) without paying those awful single supplements. Each of our 5 star accommodation options offer amazing views, we include spa treatments of your choice, private yoga and stretching classes, delicious food accompanied with local & international wines, and time to explore your destination. And of course, there’s one-on-one tuition with the local Golf Professional.

So golf?  Really? We say, why not? It’s a skill that you take with you on life’s journey.  Perhaps your partner plays and you have been the 'Golf Widow' for far too long, or you’re ready to retire, have more time on your hands and want to stay active. Maybe you’re a business professional looking for a new networking opportunity with your clients and peers.  Whatever your reason, it might just be the time. Your time.

What’s the best way to learn?  We know it’s in a relaxed environment without the frustration and added pressures from you partner, friends, or peers judging your efforts.  SHE golfs is designed to help you improve your skills over the week you spend with us.  You’ll have expert one-on-one daily lessons with a Golf Professional, teaching you the basics in a structured way, delivered with large amounts of patience.  Each day a new skill of the game is introduced, and most days we put into play what we have learnt, on the course. In some cases (depending on the destination you choose) you will have your own caddie to help you along the way. You will be amazed how quickly your game, and your skills, progress.

During the week, you’ll play with the Golf Professional – guaranteed to be a wonderful experience. We’ve been told that this is one of the highlights of the holiday, giving the ladies excellent bragging rights when they return home! 

Tell me more…  SHE golfs is a 7 days and 6 nights holiday in some of the world’s most iconic golfing destinations. Your hardest decision may be which one of these beautiful locations you’ll choose!

New Zealand offers stunning scenery and an ideal climate for golf in both Queenstown and Christchurch. Bali offers great weather year round with a wonderful cultural aspect, friendly local people, and a golf course perched on the edge of a cliff. Hawaii has great shopping, great beaches, and an abundance of golf courses. Choices!

What’s included in the package?  Luxury single accommodation, breakfast each day, most lunches, and four dinners.  Two hours of indulgent spa treatments, two yoga and stretching classes to ease the muscles.  We’ll also include your transfers: to and from the airport, and to and from activities in our program.

How many people will be in the group?  SHE golfs offer small group holidays especially designed for women. It’s not that we don't want the men in our lives to travel with us, but sometimes we need to re-charge the batteries in our own space. There are never more than 12 ladies on a trip, and golf sessions are held with 4 – 6 ladies per group. You’ll have a SHE host – and that’s where I come in; I’m a keen golfer, and I travel with every golf trip, to make sure you don't need to worry about anything once you arrive. You can relax, have fun, and enjoy yourself knowing someone else is worrying about all the small details. Does that sound like a little slice of luxury?

I don't have any clubs or shoes.  No problem.  We include your club hire in the cost, along with your cart, and you can wear your trainers / runners / walking shoes, so there’s no need to go out and spend up big; just bring comfortable shoes, a collared shirt / polo shirt, skirt or trousers (7/8's or 3/4 quarters are fine) and a visor or cap.  And we’ll remind you to pack your sunscreen. It’s all about looking after yourself!

How do I book?  Once you’ve made up your mind you’re ready for a challenge, head on over to www.shetravels.net.au for all the details on dates and destinations.  You can click on your preferred date and then complete the registration form.

What about booking flights, are they included in the cost?  The holiday costs DO NOT include flights to and from the destination.  We’ve designed it this way for a reason: to give you the choice about how and when you want to travel to the destination.  Maybe you like to fly business class, perhaps you’re happy to take a low-cost airline option.  It’s up to you. 

SHE travels is not a travel agent. We may have travel in our business name, but we do not book, sell or ticket airfares for our groups.  If you need help booking your flights, we’ll put you in contact with our preferred licensed travel agent partners, IATA travel professionals, who will make sure you have the best options, and arrive in your destination ready to hit the golf course.

So join me ladies! Choose to do something for yourself this year, and have a holiday you’ll remember for the rest of your life. I look forward to travelling with each and everyone one of you and sharing an adventure that may be the start of something truly wonderful.  It starts with SHE travels... where it ends is up to you!
