Mixing the ancient game with mythical history – Greece and Turkey Golf Tour
Ok, so many golfers may normally head to Scotland, Portugal or even Thailand for their regular golf fix, but how many can say they have taken in the sites of ancient Greece or Turkey on a unique golf vacation?
International golf holiday makers are always keen for new experiences both on and off the golf course, and some tour operators have a knack for combining premium golf with sightseeing, cultural and culinary experiences.
