Golfing holidays

I love to travel and I love playing golf, so combining the two makes quite a dynamic vacation for me. Ever since I started playing golf, I've tied it in to my vacations, to experience newer courses, different playing conditions and improving my game. Golf is one game that no matter how good you are, there is always room for improvement. Even the pros like Phil Mickelsen and Vijay Singh are constantly taking lessons and tips, going for practice sessions and trying out new equipment that will improve their game.

Golf is like a religion in my home town Chandigarh, which has one of the finest and busiest courses in the country and has produced some of the country's leading golfers, including Jeev Milkha Singh who took part in The Masters in Augusta this year, Arjun Atwal, Jyoti Randhawa and Amritinder Singh, all of who are quite active and doing well on the Asian and European tours.

I would love to go for a golf fitness vacation, something on the lines like Body Balance offers in its customized golf fitness vacations in locations such as San Diego, Hawaii and Naples, where you can practice your swing, get some great tips from the professionals and play on beautifully landscaped courses. Besides improving your swing, Golf Fitness Vacations trains you in golfing fitness as a whole. So, you'll be fitter and be able to hit the ball 20-30 yards further. What's not to love about that?
All the Golf Fitness Vacation schools utilize patented technology to analyze the body mechanics of each individual golf swing. "The 3R Training Approach puts advanced technology in the hands of our expert Golf Academy instructors," said David Ostrow, physical therapist and owner of Body Balance for Performance. "This Golf Vacation is designed to help you become more consistent, gain distance, and play pain free -- all while on vacation."
