Lehigh Valley, PA (Vocus) March 23, 2009
Good golfers need to know plenty of numbers: yardage, par, rating, slope, and so on. But this summer, the only number golfers need to know to book an affordable and convenient golf getaway is the number nine. Why? Because it's the lucky number that keeps popping up in 2009 Stay & Play travel packages in the Lehigh Valley region of eastern Pennsylvania.
Stay & Play packages are a turnkey way to visit the region since they feature all of the necessary components for a great golf trip: overnight accommodations at one of nine area hotels, breakfast, and 18 holes of golf with greens fee, cart and taxes at one of nine participating golf courses. Package rates start at $95 per person, per night, based on double occupancy and vary depending on mid-week or weekend tee times. Surcharges may apply to certain courses. Packages are available now through December 2009 (weather permitting).
Golfers who book a Stay & Play package receive access to preferred tee times at the course of their choice, guaranteeing them a better chance of playing when they want. And since Stay & Play packages are designed to be convenient, participating hotels act as a one-stop-shop, booking the tee time and cart directly with the golf course of their choice.
