Have the pictures in our 2014 PLAYGOLF Planner got your attention? Well, maybe you should take a moment and look through them all again and then come back to actually read this article on how The Girls at Pam’s really can help make your fantasy golf trip a reality.
Of course, when it comes to golf fantasy, our male clients are probably thinking… man it would be great if a hot brunette came to their rescue, by diving into a cool pool of water in a tight wet suit to retrieve the last Titleist golf ball they had in their bag and just shanked into the water.
And our lady golfers are probably thinking… What about us? You seriously need to put more men in this magazine. Or maybe… that they wouldn’t mind having a handsome man retrieve one of their balls from the water. That would be a fantasy… wait… why would we hit a ball in the water? That would require us to take a penalty stroke.
But no… what we are actually referring to is a few pointers, from The Girls at Pam’s, that will make the planning of your golf vacation fun and easy.
If you are the group leader, you can attest to the pressure of trying to appease a bunch of your friends, all with their own opinions on “what makes a perfect golf vacation”. This is where The Girls at Pam’s make it easy for you. We have seen it all. We help you avoid all of the common pitfalls, like course aerification, that can make the playing experience subpar. We can also help you work around the specialty event weekends in the area that can increase the package price. If you are a group member, here’s a secret… Become a Group Leader! Reason: The Girls at Pam’s treat them like royalty and do everything we can to get them as many perks as possible.
Selecting your travel dates is the first thing you need to figure out. Here’s a tip: Be Flexible. Think of selecting your travel dates like picking the perfect club to land your ball next to the pin. Selecting the wrong club will either leave you short or have you flying over the green. The same thing applies to travel dates. If you travel early in the season, you trade exceptional prices for riskier weather. If you travel in peak season you now have to contend with keeping your trip on budget. So yes, if you’re wondering… there is a sweet spot in travel dates. All you have to do to find it is ask The Girls at Pam’s and we can guide you there. We will even remind you about Mother’s Day and Easter to keep you out of hot water with the family. There is also a lot of money to be saved by traveling during the week. Sundays are considered weekday rates with our accommodations. If you can play after 12 p.m. the courses will offer bigger discounts.
Sure we know that many of our clients start out thinking they want to play the most challenging courses in the area, stay in five-star accommodations and have The Girls at Pam’s caddy each round. The first two are definitely possible depending on your group’s budget, but with over half of the area courses offering GPS, you won’t need us to caddy. However, as the group leader, we do highly recommend that you find out what the needs of your group really are before selecting your courses and accommodations. This way we can help you narrow your options and get the best bang for your buck. Let us know if your group is on a limited budget; if the location of the hotel important; if you want your accommodations to include breakfast, an indoor pool or have a bar on premise. Also, consider the average handicap of your group. If it is 20+, playing the most difficult courses may leave your group frustrated instead of having fun. We will fit your golf trip to your group like a set of custom clubs. The Girls at Pam’s will customize the perfect golf vacation, at the best price possible and with the most value added booking bonuses like: FREE dinner certificates, COMPLIMENTARY drink coupons and FREE nights and rounds.
Okay, here is the most valuable tip we can give you as the group leader, especially if you are a gentleman: When a woman gives you something to read – read it. We send you important information that you should relay to your group. The Girls at Pam’s always provides you with a detailed itinerary that lists your travel dates, what you are doing and when you are doing it. We realize that these documents are not as interesting as an issue of “Golf Magazine” or the contents of our 2014 PLAYGOLF Planner, but they will ensure that we have taken care of every detail of your trip to the fullest.
After we have confirmed the details of their Ocean City golf vacation, our group leaders say they feel like “Carl Spackler” chasing gophers when it comes to getting their group members to make their final payments on time. No worries, The Girls at Pam’s have you covered. Simply give your group members the link to our state-of-the art on-line payment portal to make their payments or ask them to call in individually and set up automatic payments with one of our golf travel coordinators. This way you can focus on tuning up your game with a lesson before your golf vacation and stocking up on golf balls, instead trying to collect money from your group members.
Whether you have been planning golf trips for years or this is your first attempt as golf trip Master, just remember: “There’s a force in the universe that makes things happen. And all you have to do is get in touch with it, stop thinking, let things happen, and be the ball”, or call the Girls at Pam’s and follow these extra suggestions. They may be just what you need to help make your next golf vacation to Ocean City the best one yet…
#1 Create a rooming list for your group and send it to Pam’s at least two weeks prior to your arrival. This will help the check-in staff at your accommodation better prepare for your arrival and will shorten your check-in time. The last thing you want to do when you get to the hotel after a round golf is figure out who gets to room with the group member that snores the loudest.
#2. Have each member of your group program the Pam’s 24-hour travel assistance line in their cell phone, as well as the phone numbers of your accommodations and the courses you will be golfing. This way no matter what situation arises, The Girls at Pam’s can help. Hint: These numbers are listed in the travel documents you should bring with you on your trip!
#3. Attend any of our social events. Here you can meet the staff at Pam’s, receive free appetizers and beverages and win fantastic prizes.
#4. And our final tip… Take advantage of our FREE Trip Mulligan for traveling with Pam’s Ocean City Golf Getaways. After all, you’re the group leader, you deserve it!
We’ll see you on the green… Or maybe, just maybe, you’ll see us diving after that Titleist ball you lost in the water.
