Whether you’re a pro playing in the Masters or an amateur practicing your swing, spas have treatments inspired just for those who love the game of golf. More and more spa menus are sporting services to accommodate golfers, and these treatments are not just par for the course – they can help prevent injuries, improve your game, or simply soothe the aches and pains that can result from a day on the green. Massage services, hydrotherapy soaks, acupuncture, hydrating facials (beneficial after hours in the sun), and even yoga and Pilates for golfers are among the treatments making the rounds on spa menus.
So tee off, play the course, then steer your golf cart to the spa for a treatment. You’ll be revived and refreshed just in time for your next game.
