Australian Golfers Find Much to Enjoy in the United States at the Right Times of the Year
There can be no doubt that Australia is one of the world's greatest places for avid golfers. With a wealth of weather that makes it easy to enjoy a day on the links, Australia is home to a great number of the world's most highly regarded courses. Having produced an impressive number of high-ranking professional golfers relative to the country's population, Australia is also a golfing powerhouse in other respects. Even while Australia itself has so much to offer to golfers, though, taking a golf holiday to another country entirely can be incredibly rewarding, too.
While many residents enjoy golfing year round, for example, there are still stretches of the calendar that regularly feature weather that is less than ideal. A strategically planned golfing holiday can therefore be a good way to seek out better conditions elsewhere in the world while also seeing some new sights and courses.
Many Australians, for example, find that heading to the Northern Hemisphere in the midst of winter can be an excellent idea. When the weather is at its coolest in Australia, much of the northern part of the United States is enjoying its most pleasant days of the year. That means enjoying a style of golfing that is markedly different than is usual for most places in Australia, making options of this kind perennially popular.
In New England, for example, many classic courses come into their prime through July and August every year. With comfortable daytime highs and typically generous precipitation making the fairways green, golfers get to experience a style of golfing that is unusual for Australia.
At a place like Brookline Country Club in Massachusetts, for example, golfers will see what it means for fairways to be so lush that eking much roll out of a drive becomes far harder. At the same time, it will often be easier than is normal in Australia to make an approach shot stop quickly on the green, leading to some interesting and skill-developing challenges for those used to playing under very different conditions. A trip to the United States during the right time of the year can therefore make for a great way for a golfer to experience some expanded horizons.
