The next time you go on a golf vacation or on a vacation where you just want to get in a round or two, wouldn’t it be nice to stay for free in a lovely home right on or near a golf course?
Almost 20,000 of our 65,000+ Listings have indicated their homes as being accessible to golf. All of those homes have courses in the area, and many of them are actually on courses or in country clubs.
You probably know that you can’t even pay to play many private courses without an invitation from a member. That’s the way it is with my club. But with HomeExchange.com, you can often get connected with buddies of your exchange partner and play an otherwise private course with them. So instead of playing as a single (or not at all), you might get to play with some new friends.
I’m lucky enough to have two homes, one in Hermosa Beach and one in a country club near Palm Springs. I have a regular game in Hermosa Beach — we play nine holes on a pubic executive course at sunrise on Fridays. When I do a home exchange with a golfer, I often ask them if they are interested in taking my Friday slot. They get to join my regular foursome, have some fun and go for breakfast at Sions, the Mexican restaurant we’ve been going to for years.
And if the exchange is with my desert home, I can set them up to play as guests with some of my buddies there. Or they can play any of the other 150 courses nearby.
Many private clubs don’t even allow short-term rentals, but with HomeExchange.com you can stay at places that are not available for rent at any price — and stay for free! You might even be able to borrow some clubs instead of lugging your own.
So, next time you’re thinking about taking a golf vacation or just playing some golf while you’re on vacation, consider HomeExchange.com as a flexible and affordable way to get you on some new courses!
Whether or not you’re a golfer, I’m always open for good exchanges, here’s my Listing.
