Every summer, golf enthusiasts flock to hotels near Clearwater Beach, FL, and Treasure Island to take advantage of the many country clubs and golf courses available in the region. Hosting many of these golf enthusiasts ourselves, we’ve compiled some information that we hope will be useful for those looking to tee off this summer season.
What to pack
Packing carefully for your golfing vacation can help avoid last-minute stresses and purchases that distract you from playing your best game! Be sure to consider the following advice from golf pros to make sure you’re comfortable and well-prepared for your trip.
- Club-appropriate clothing for any weather event. Believe it or not, however much Treasure Island may seem like paradise, it does occasionally rain here. Coming prepared with appropriate outerwear, even if the forecast is for sunny skies, will help you stay comfortable and give you a competitive edge. This can include waterproof golf shoes, microfiber clothing, and even a parka; a golf umbrella is a great addition as well, as it can serve as protection from both sun and rain.
- Sunscreen and water. Treasure Island is known for its beautiful weather, which means lots of sun! Stay hydrated and remember to re-apply waterproof sunscreen every hour or so.
- A swimsuit! Golfing can make you work up a sweat, and our beaches here at Page Terrace Beachfront Hotel are some of the most beautiful in the country. After a long day on the courses, take a dip in the crystal-clear ocean water next to the hotel or try out our large, heated swimming pool.
