Hit the Links in an RV: 3 Ideas for the Ultimate RV Golf Trip
Both golfing and RVing are about fun, relaxation, community, travel and the outdoors. One of the great things about golf is that there is a course for everyone.
Whether you are brand new to the game or are a scratch golfer, there is sure to be a course nearby that’s perfect for your game. What better way to pair the two than with an RV road trip with a round or two sprinkled in. Even better is getting to play a few rounds while staying at an incredible RV resort. Here are 3 ideas for the ultimate RV golf trip this summer.

What more could you ask for on an RV trip than sun, sand, surf and a little golf? Torrey Pines Golf Course, located in La Jolla, California has just that. The course is situated right on the Pacific Ocean in the Torrey Pines State Reserve and played host to the 2008 US Open.
Featuring some of the most scenic vistas on any course in the country, Torrey Pines provides plenty of challenge and excitement for golfers of all abilities. Just 30 minutes south is the San Diego Metro KOA Resort, which is a great place to stay on an RV trip to the west coast. This RV resort is quite unique as it offers the full RV experience in the middle of metropolitan San Diego. The Gas Lamp Quarter and beaches are just north of the resort, making for an action-packed RV golf trip.

Besides Florida and California, no other state is as much a golfer and RVer’s paradise like Arizona. Fabulous weather and incredible scenery make for the perfect place to play a round of golf. Whirlwind Golf Club in Chandler, AZ combines those two features along with two fantastic courses nestled in the heart of the Arizona desert.
The Cattail Course provides golfers with plenty of challenge in the form of deep canyons and pristine lakes, while the Devil’s Claw Course uses elevation changes and steep mounding to test even the most skilled player. For a great RV trip, stay nearby at Mesa/Apache Junction KOA.
Enjoy the awe-inspiring scenery of the Superstition Mountains and the endless horizon of the Sonoran Desert from the comfort of your RV. Make sure to stop at Lazydays RV Tucson at some point during your trip to stock up on any RV accessories you need or take care of any RV service.
