Airstreams & Golf

I did a bit of searching and didn't find a thread about this so, as I'm an avid golfer, I thought I would start one.

I live on a golf course here in Central Oregon but until now I haven't conflated golf with Airstreams. I've always thought of RVing more in the context of camping. But golf has crept in to the picture for a couple of reasons.

The first is that my wife and I have decided to spend at least a month at an RV resort in Arizona - Palm Creek in Casa Grande - that has a nice looking executive course. So for the first time it dawned on me that we needed to pack along our clubs.

And today I just discovered RV Golf Club | RVGC - an annual membership fee entitles you to park for free for a couple of nights at 300+ golf courses around the US. I have no idea how it will work out but I thought I would take a shot (sorry) for $99. We're planning on spending a couple nights in Sedona and there's a course there where we can stay for free, so that alone gets the money back.

I'll comment here from time to time about Airstream golfing.

Note: I have no involvement with either of the places I mentioned except as a customer.

I'm getting exciting about RV golf. Anyone have experience with RV parks with golf courses?

Love golf, love camping. The challenge I see here is that while I am golfing my bride is sitting in a golf course parking lot. Got to give this little more thought, but definitely an interesting idea!

My wife plays golf so we don't have that issue. What about RV resorts like
Palm Creek Golf & RV Resort ?

On the east coast, there is a state park on the ocean, in the middle of Myrtle Beach and of course (sorry), there are tons of golf courses around the park. Maybe one of these years, we will do an RV and Golf trip.

My wife's the golfer. The crates of balls are cheap compared to all those cute outfits and matching shoes. Are there any RV & Golf resorts with a gold mining creek nearby?

On the east coast there are many state parks that have golf courses. Ga. Has 6 I believe. There is a good one in Chattanooga, Tn also.

Pueblo El Mirage in El Mirage, AZ is a popular golf resort. Just spent three months there- and we don't even golf! Nice clean facilities, only issue we had was the deafening sound of military jets all day long, into the night at times. The resort in directly in line with the runway.

We went on the Golfin Around Rally this past April with 14 other units, had a great time. I believe there will be another one in 2015.

We enjoy a desert golf course out here in Hope Az. A driving range tee box mat looking out over a graded rock/sand fairway, (most rocks raked to the fairway edge) with astroturf greens in one or two widths wide. It plays way different than "green" golf, you need to drop the ball early and let it roll up to the green. You hit the green on the fly it will bounce way long.
We use tees for every shot to keep from damaging the club, all holes a par 4, longest @ 225 yards

Great Idea! I design golf courses and live in Myrtle Beach, SC. I have worked in Oregon at Willamette Valley CC - Canby, OR. Huntington State Park just south of Myrtle Beach is a great place to drop anchor. But I love the idea of using the parking lots for a quick round. I use my 'Percolator' as a field office when I am doing work at different golf courses. I will start to approach some clubs to see if they are up to the idea of 'overnighting' and get back to you. I will also check out the RVGC, too.

Keep it down the middle and that includes the Airstream!
