Many parents find themselves with a wealth of free time once their children leave home and they become "empty nesters." For Dad, this time can be one of transition, as he most likely finds himself in a higher position at his job that also affords him benefits like travel.
This period is the perfect time to book a golf trip for Dad and his buddies. A golfing vacation package is also the perfect way for the kids to say "thanks" to Dad for helping to put them through college.
