The Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory announced its list of Top Parks for Golfers for 2014.
These RV parks provide challenging, fun-filled golf courses for RVers who seek out great links on their travels.
Some of the RV parks on this list feature golf courses and driving ranges on their property; others are located in regions with several nearby golf courses. In all cases, these parks are up to par when it comes to attracting folks who are always ready to tee off.
Highlights of this list include:
- Some RV parks attract golfers in part because of their proximity to world-renowned courses. Eagle View RV Resort at Fort McDowell is located just two minutes from the We-Ko-Pa Golf Club, ranked by Sports Illustrated as one of the Top 10 New Public Golf Courses in the World.
- Parks that offer links within the resort include Pueblo El Mirage Golf and RV Resort, which boasts a 72-par course designed by golfing champion Fuzzy Zoeller.
- RV/Golf travel packages help some of these RV parks attract golfing customers. Mallard Creek Golf Course & RV Resort, for instance, offers packages for stays as long as a month that include unlimited golf on the resort’s course.

Golf is the closest game to the game we call life. You get bad breaks from good shots; you get good breaks from bad shots—but you have to play the ball where it lies.
