Pictured above Owen & Eric Hoskinson - Fun Golf Vacations

Fun Golf Vacations was founded by two lifelong best friends Owen Hoskinson & Greg Patton in 1999 with the idea that golf trips are more fun with your friends! Unfortunately, Greg passed away from Cancer in 2012. His spirit lives on with all the other golfers that have partners that have passed. This easily could have been the end for Fun Golf Vacations, but Owens son Eric stepped in with the idea that there should be multiple buddy golf trips the the West Coasts Home of Golf PGA WEST.

Why you and your golf buddies should join the FUN!

Fun Golf Vacations is exactly what the title says FUN GOLF VACATION. Yes it’s organized around a tournament format, because who doesn’t like a little competition with friends but at the end of the day its creating the memories with your golf buddies at what we believe is one of the greatest golf complexes on the West Coast.

Myself and as many as 11 other buddies have traveled from Vancouver, Canada to attend this event for 6 years. Unfortunately due to COVID border restrictions we were unable to attend last and this year. This is the most fun and well organized golf trip/tournament I have ever attended. Eric does his utmost to make sure everyone has a great time. I have made a lot of friendships both American and Canadian that I look forward to seeing every year. The tournament caters to all skill levels and handicap golfers so no need to feel intimidated whatever level you play. The courses are top rated and all amazing. The accommodations are great with pool, hot tub and BBQ’s just steps away from your door. I can’t say enough about this tournament except come and enjoy the fun. Looking forward to 2022!

Every year I look forward to this event!! It is by far one of the best golf events I’ve ever been a part of.Eric (the host) is always so accommodating and really makes the experience worth it for everyone ensuring that all guests are taken care of. I think that is really hard to find in today’s world. It’s what makes all of these events special!I love coming this tournament because of the friendships that form over this great game of golf! On top of it all, I love getting to play PGA WEST a week before the PGA Tour in the Palm Springs Golf Championships! It’s my favorite rounds that I play all year and I’m looking forward to coming to Palm Springs every year for this event until the day I die!I’ll see you there! Don’t miss out on this event!- @tfeltz_golf

I have been attending Fun Golf Vacation events for the past 12 years. Erik puts on awesome events that are fun for all levels of golfer. The courses are second to none and the weather is perfect. April/May and also January are perfect times to be in the Palm Desert area. I have attended with several friends and we always come back because it’s so worth it. The condos are well appointed and you have two private rooms. There is also a great pool and hot tub! I look forward to attending for many years to come!

Played in my first Palm Springs golf championship hosted by fun golf events and the experience could not have been more life-changing! From the hosting living quarters, to the integrated app that made it incredibly easy to stay up-to-date with teetimes and leaderboard, from start to finish it was one of the most well put together and organized events I’ve ever been a part of! Not to mention you get to play some of the greatest courses in the country thanks to Eric! Will be making the Palm Springs golf championship a yearly event in my golf trips!

Play where the pros play and feel like a member. Eric puts on top notch events for golfers of all skill levels. If your a pro or a 30 handicap you will not be disappointed. I have made friends from all over Canada and the states and look forward to seeing everyone each year for good golf, drinks and and a great vacation week. Also a chance to win a bunch of cash! Do yourself a huge favour and don’t miss out!
