What to Expect?
You will need to set up a tee time in advance at these golf courses as times fill up quickly. The good news is that playing later in the day will give you enough money to spend on another course the next day which is common for most courses.
If you make reservations to stay at one of the resorts, you can book a tee time in advance too. By booking early, you’ll have more time to save money, pick up some extra equipment, and have your vacation planned out before you ever arrive which will leave you relaxed and without the added worry of finding a course to play.
