    Ideas for Selecting Wine for Your Wedding

    Last updated 9 months ago

    If you have a wedding coming up then you already know the importance of choosing the right food. But have you thought about wine, the necessary compliment to a good meal? The best way to begin the process of selecting wine is to sample a variety of wines over the course of several weeks or months. Remember to sample both red and white wines, and to taste these wines with the foods that you hope to serve. A wedding planner or caterer may give you suggestions for which wines to serve, but it’s a good idea to taste them to be sure these suggestions are to your liking before ordering them. Lastly, don’t let a tight budget limit you; there is a vast array of quality, inexpensive wine to choose from.

    Planning A Family Vacation

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Family vacations can be just as fun to plan as they are to carry out. But there are lots of different things to keep in mind during the planning process, including location, distance from home, family friendliness, weather, and cost. Here are some tips on how to plan a family vacation that everyone in your family enjoys.

    Ensure a Good Time for the Kids|
    As all families know, no family trip is a success if the kids aren’t happy. As you plan your family vacation, make sure that there are plenty of activities for your kids. An outdoor pool is always fun if you’re going on a summer vacation, but if you’re traveling in the colder months be sure that the hotel you book has an indoor pool, too. Being close to a dynamic city like Baltimore or Washington DC ensures that you kids are just a short car trip away from destinations such as the National Mall, Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Six Flags America, and the National Aquarium Baltimore.

    Think of Mom
    During a family vacation mom will be happier if she has time to relax and enjoy herself. Check to see that the hotel or resort you are looking into has a luxury spa, a nice restaurant, and nice rooms with plenty of space. To really pamper mom, book a hotel room suite with a Jacuzzi tub or a separate room.

    Give Dad What He Wants
    Dads need to relax and enjoy the vacation too. Find a hotel or resort with an excellent golf course, tennis court, and a restaurant with a great selection of beer, wine, and top-notch food. It wouldn’t hurt to have a hotel room with a balcony either.

    To find out how Turf Valley Resort located just outside of Washington DC and Baltimore offers the perfect family vacation, visit our website today. Our luxury hotel offers 36 holes of golf, a world-class restaurant, luxury spa, and even event facilities. Call us today at (410) 465-1500 if you have any questions about having a family vacation at our resort.

    Teach Your Children to Golf with These Helpful Tips

    Last updated 9 months ago

    Golf has for centuries been a sport that’s enjoyed by the whole family. If you want your kids to enjoy a day at the golf course like you do, patience and positivity is essential. Keep the following golf tips in mind to ensure that your children enjoy themselves while they learn to play the game.

    Let Your Kids Play
    It’s important that your children learn to play the game correctly. But this should not be your top priority when teaching a young child to play golf. Teaching kids golf should not be done by hammering them with rules and proper form. Instead, allow your kids to explore the game and have fun with it, praise your kids along the way, and answer any questions they have.

    Play During Low Season
    Late fall and winter are perfect times to take your kids to the golf course. The course won’t be crowded, so you and your child can take plenty of time to play the game without worrying about holding up other golfers.

    Use Properly Sized Equipment
    With kids it’s natural to want to buy a club that’s too long so that they can grow into it. But a club that’s too long, too heavy, or too stiff brings about unwanted swing habits. Invest in the right equipment and your kids will enjoy the game more, perform better, and foster a good swing technique.

    Kneel When You Talk
    When you instruct your kids or give them advice on how to play golf, be sure that you kneel down rather than stand up. The idea is that you should communicate on their level, both in terms of where and how you talk to them. Avoid using convoluted terminology and just stick with simple phrases instead.

    At Turf Valley Resort we have a 36-hole championship golf course located a short distance from Baltimore and Washington DC. Visit our website to learn more about our courses, and call us at (410) 465-1500 to ask us any questions you have or to make a reservation.
