As a family when we decide to take a vacation golfing definitely has to be factored into the equation. As much as beaches, camping, shopping, kids fun, etc is rather important golfing in the area is key as well. Nice to see GolfTours.com make it a little easier to decide with their first ever list of the top five destinations for Golf Travel themed family destinations.  I also like the fact Pinehurst and Hershey are within driving distance of where I live.

“Finally, a list that doesn't separate mom, dad, and the kids for a week of golf.  This isn't only about hitting the green, but keeping your loved ones close while doing it!  Packaged deals, family friendly resorts, and just plain good golf, we invite you to look at the top five family golf destinations.” Said Robert Tuchman, a partner with Golftours.com

Nice list from GolfTours. I personally think the lawns of Orlando are truly beautiful. Plus the weather's perfect for golfing too. May bring the family there soon.
