Sharing information, stories and knowledge is the goal of both Golf News Net and the GolfGetaways team — and on this episode of “Talking GolfGetaways,” hosts Mitch Laurance and Darin Bunch welcome one-of-a-kind contributor Eric Hart to do all three. With a resume that includes playing 400-plus courses at 120 resorts worldwide, many with a slant on family-oriented experiences, Eric is at the top of any list when it comes to being the traveling golfer’s best friend.
For this podcast, Eric focuses on “Top 5 Things I Look For In A Great Family Golf Resort” — and it might surprise listeners to learn that golf often comes in at No. 5 on that list given the varied experiences that family-friendly resorts offer these days.
Also, hear why paying $10 for a kids’ meal drives Eric completely nuts. And what features Crystal Springs Resort in New Jersey, Okemo Mountain in Vermont and Nemacolin Woodlands in Pennsylvania have that other resorts might want to emulate. And finally, how water, in all its family-fun forms, figures into his biggest component of a great family golf vacation — exploration.
It’s an episode full of travel tips and ideas. And it doesn’t end there — don’t hesitate to reach out to Eric on Instagram @MobileGolfer with additional golf-travel questions.
