GolfGetaways magazine finds travel options for golfing families

BRAINTREE, Mass. -- As the "grow the game" mantra continues to reverberate through the world of golf, one thing is certain to help keep folks playing: More family-friendly destinations. Getting kids involved while keeping Mom and Dad happy is priority one for a lot of resorts and courses these days, which makes the March-April 2014 issue of GolfGetaways magazine such a valuable resource for vacation planners.

Available on newsstands Feb. 25, the new edition of GolfGetaways - which took Outstanding Achievement honors at the recent International Network of Golf Media Awards - finds a wealth of top-notch travel options for America's army of golfing families.

"Our editors and writers cover a lot of ground each year to seek out the best places to spend a golfing getaway, but we're seeing a huge surge in family-centric offerings from resorts from coast to coast," says Executive Editor Vic Williams. "As a guy with two kids still at home, I certainly appreciate that, and I hope many fellow parents will find this issue an informative and inspiring source of ideas for their next golf-oriented family trip."

Featured destinations include Whistler, British Columbia; cover subject Branson, Mo.; Grizzly Ranch in Northern California; Grand Del Mar in Southern California; and quick-hit looks at Cape Cod, Cooperstown, Hershey, Kohler and many others. And E. Nolan's heartfelt chronicle of traveling the country with his young son puts a memo-rable finish on the coverage.
