What’s The Best Way To Enjoy Golf In The “Off-Season”? Expos? Travel? “Get Out of Dodge?”

It’s the off season here in the northeast, but if you love golf, love shopping for new equipment and love getting ready for the “Golf On-Season” then there are plenty of opportunities for you.

This year, 2011, GolfGurls.com is traveling to The 2011 Orlando Trade Show. Closed to the public and attended only by golf pros and the media, GolfGurls.com snagged a media badge and we are ready to hit the Orlando Convention Center.

The event is absolutely packed with vendors showing off their very latest equipment, training gadgets, fashions, and who knows what else. We’re heading south and bringing camera, computer, and digital recorder to send you all the latest information from the trade show floor. We’re setting up interviews with some of the best in the business and will be posting those as podcasts both on this site and on our podcast channel on itunes as they go live.

We’ll be “broad posting” from Orlando beginning Wednesday, January 26 with daily updates.

Travel for Golf

Golf in HawaiiJust heard about this great travel opportunity from Linda Tatten of Travels by TattenCruise and Golf in Hawaii… now that’s one for my “bucket list!”

From Travel Weekly: The Crystal Symphony will host its first Golf Experiences of Discovery to the Hawaiian Islands cruise departing from Los Angeles on April 24.

The 14-day roundtrip will offer travelers a chance to play on the Poipu Bay Golf Course on Kauai, the Ko’olau Golf Course on Oahu and Kaanapali Golf Course on Maui while calling at Honolulu, Hilo, Lahaina and Nawawiliwili, before a stop in Ensenada, Mexico.

Check out all the details at: Crystal Cruises, Golf Hawaii

And finally…. It’s really happening: GolfGurls.com is traveling to Ireland this spring.

I’ve convinced my friend Noreen to leave her husband at home, grab her clubs and head off into the wild “green” yonder with me on a grand “GolfGurls Golf Holiday.”

We are traveling to the emerald isle for a week of adventure this coming May. As faithful readers to GolfGurls.com, you’ll be privy to all the details and all the plans we’re making. And if you’ve ever been to Ireland for golf, I welcome your ideas and suggestions— especially about what to wear. The weather in May is supposed to be mild… but in Ireland, you never know. We welcome all your advice. Just add them to the comments below.

We’ll be posting about all of our Ireland plans. So watch for the updates.

Erin Go Braless! 🙂

    Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyhow, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

    All of my travels to Ireland were pre-golf days, however, I do know that there are a lot of public courses near some of the big name courses (like Old Head in Kinsale) that are very reasonably priced and offer a complementary experience.

    Layers is the name of the game for the weather in Ireland in spring. And it depends somewhat on what part of Ireland you are traveling to. Email me directly & I can give you more insight. I am actually hoping there is a trip to Ireland in my near future, too.

      Thanks Char for the input. Layers is certainly the way to go…! Even here in the northeast.
