What is the meaning / definition of Golf Resort in the hospitality industry?

Golf Resorts is a full-service lodging facility, that caters specifically to the sport of golf, and provides access to a golf course. Golf Resorts typically offer golf packages that provide visitors with all greens, cart fees, range balls, accommodations and meals.

As a self-contained establishment, a Golf Resort provides for most of a vacationer’s needs while remaining on the premises (lodging, food, drink, sports, entertainment, shopping, etc.).

The benefits of booking a Resort Hotel are that the guest finds an all-around service within the premises. It is convenient for families, offering kids-club, evening entertaining program, shopping etc. In cases the Resort is located far away from the city, the Resort provides all the infrastructure needed (it is a ‘village’ itself). In the case of a Golf Resort, the guest benefits from the proximity to the Golf course and at the same time is provided with all the other services he wishes for during his stay. Typically, golf resorts are located not in close proximity to city centres at cost of the luxury of having a golf course on the premises. This sets them apart from their counterparts such as smaller-scale city and boutique hotels which are not able to deliver this service.
