Our Top Tips & Travel Itineraries for Golf Destination Charter Flights

If the PGA Tour season has sparked your interest in playing more golf, we can relate. For golf enthusiasts looking to maximize their game, you need to go where the weather cooperates – and that means combining two passions: travel and golf. Nothing lets you enjoy both quite like a private charter. You not only get to travel in style, but so does your gear.

Here’s how to make your dream trip happen:

Pick Your Favorite Destination

Florida, Scottsdale, Las Vegas or North Carolina top the list. Or maybe you’re looking to book that dream trip to catch a pro tournament in person. Got tickets to Augusta for next year? We can help you map out a travel itinerary that maximizes your time and assures you don’t have to deal with Atlanta’s airport – one of the busiest in the world. Instead, we’ll fly you into Augusta Regional Airport, arrange for ground transportation to your accommodations, and be ready for your return. Big events like the Masters can require booking a few months in advance to ensure availability, however we can likely fit personal, non-event related trips in with only a couple weeks’ notice. Ask us about charters to other popular events like the Kentucky Derby, NASCAR races or the Super Bowl.

Bring All Your Clubs

Heading out to St. Augustine to golf at World Golf Village? Skip the golf club rentals and bring your own gear. Got a lucky putter? You can keep it with you – no need to check your bags or worry about gear going missing or getting broken. Our flights will take you as close to your destination as possible, making the most your time by landing at small airports. Here’s an example of a golf outing we planned for three gentlemen and their wives looking for a quick day trip:

  • 7:00 am: Board plane at Port Clinton** with breakfast on plane 
  • 9:15 am: Arrive at St Augustine Airport, car greets plane, load car 
  • 17-minute drive to World Golf Village 
  • 10:15 am Tee Time. Finish round at 2:30 pm, ~1 hour at 19th hole 
  • 17-minute drive to airport 
  • Depart 3:30 pm, refreshments on plane 
  • 5:45 pm: Arrive at Port Clinton 
  • 6:15 pm: Home for dinner 

Map Out Your Itinerary

  • 9:10 am: Arrive Hilton Head Airport, car greets plane, load car
