Could a Timeshare Golf Vacation be the Start of Your Child’s Pro Career?
Saturday, July 11, 2009
As the talented pros and amateurs take to the golf course this week at the 64th US Open, we will watch veterans of ladies’ professional golf along with some rising young stars, battle it out at Saucon Valley Country Club, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
The amateur’s field is young and extremely talented, including 13-year-old Yueer Feng; 16-year-old Jessica Korda (who last year finished T-19 in this event); and 14-year-old Alexis Thompson, who first qualified for the U.S. Women’s Open, at the age of 12, and has since won the 2008 U.S. Girls’ Junior Golf Championship.
Nearly 30 teenage or young adult golfers have already accomplished something spectacular just to be playing in this field as amateurs, not to mention the young pros Paula Creamer and Morgan Pressel, ages 22 and 21, who have already won 2 Majors and 8 LPGA Tour events between them.
So is your son, daughter, or grandchild, the next Tiger Woods or Annika Sorentam? Even if a pro career isn’t in the future for your offspring, how about a college athletic scholarship or simply the chance to build skills, character, and confidence that will carry him or her through a lifetime?
Timeshare Vacations and Family Golf Outings
Many timeshares resorts are at or near wonderful golf courses. Sometimes, owning timeshare even lets you get on courses where tee times are not available to the public, or affords you discount rates for play or practice. Timeshares and families go together, which makes it ideal that timeshares and golf go together so well, too.
The Welk Resorts timeshare in San Diego currently offers its timeshare owners or timeshare renters complimentary full swing golf clinics on Tuesdays; putting clinics on Wednesdays; and chipping clinics on Thursdays. They provide all the equipment, and you don’t even have to preregister.
Select Marriott Resorts allows children under the age of 15 to play free after 3PM when accompanied by a paying adult. Kids can also receive a free golf lesson when accompanied by an adult who is taking a fully paid golf lesson from a Marriott Golf instructor. (Availability and restrictions may apply.)
And while you will find lots of great deals on rounds of golf and golf instruction at your favorite timeshare resorts, here’s another possibility you may not have considered. How about the sunshine and blue skies of a Naples, Florida vacation with a GreenLinks Golf Resort rental? These luxury condos are located on the fairway, offering one, two and three bedrooms vacation rentals, and access to a Robert Trent Jones, Sr. signature course or Lee Trevino’s Mustang course.
The opportunities for a golf timeshare vacation, or golf condo rental are excellent and sometimes, the very best part, is that they create time for a family to be together, unplugged from their electronics and in-tune with each other.
