Caddy for Your Daddy: This Father’s Day Golf Package Lasts All Summer


Trust me on this: Your dad doesn’t want another tie.


Father’s Day is Sunday, June 16, and the best gift you can give Daddy Dearest is quality time together.


To make Poppa feel extra-special, consider this offer from The Resort at Longboat Key Club in Sarasota. It’s called the “Stay and Play Golf Getaway” package, and it includes:


  • Unlimited golf from 2 p.m. until sunset. Your cart fee and club rentals are covered, too.

  • $100 daily credit for the resort’s Island House Spa, good for any of the “Just for Men” treatments. Try a relaxing sports massage, or an “agility stretch” session to help you improve your golf game.

  • 10 percent discount on most items in the pro shop.


Now for the ultimate dad question: How much does it cost?


The package starts at a nightly rate of $349 on weekdays and $389 on Friday and Saturday -- which sounds steep, until you consider...


a) The resort’s regular green fee for an 18-hole round of golf after 1 p.m. is $45, plus $23 for cart rental. Club rentals are $50 for 18 holes. With five 9-hole golf courses on site, you can mix and match the 45 holes ‘til your heart’s content.


b) He’s your DAD!


c) This offer is actually valid through Sept. 30, 2013, so you have all summer to save up. (Please don’t borrow the money from your father.)
