Golf and a Marathon – Your “A” Game for Fun and Exploration
East of Marathon Coach Oregon lies rugged terrain overflowing with sagebrush, native conifers, buckwheat and goat caddies. Yes – goat caddies. Hidden in the vast plains of Oregon resides Silvies Valley Ranch, where golf and adventure collide. With their reversible 18-hole championship course, two additional courses, upscale family-style dining, spa, fishing, shooting, hiking, RV hookups and other resort amenities and lodging options, Silvies offers what many Marathon coach owners love about golfing: fun, exploration and community – all in the great outdoors.
A Marathon makes chasing the links even more compelling, for the casual golfer and the pro alike. And what’s not to love? Self-contained, with plenty of storage for clubs and wardrobe changes, a full galley, personal facilities, master suite and other amenities of home, having a luxury bus conversion provides the basis for the ultimate in an RV golf vacation.
Whether a day in the new normal or normal of old, golf offers natural scenery and a retreat from the everyday grind. An opportunity to talk business in a casual setting, a way to catch up with friends, time alone with the significant other or time alone with your thoughts, a rugged adventure course like Silvies, a coveted course such as Pebble Beach, the familiar course in your hometown and others can provide both respite and challenge.
The perfect combination for socially-distanced vacationing, luxury RVing and golf have continued to thrive as the global pandemic has changed the way the world views vacation and downtime. Although perhaps not as wild, remote or expansive as the 140,000-acre Silvies, for the casual golfer there are myriad other golf and RV resorts spanning the country, including some coach owners’ favorites listed in the sidebar.
For professional golfers, it’s about more than convenience and comfort – their Marathon is another work tool to ensure they’re ready for any challenges the day brings. Marathon made the pages of “The New York Times” when pro golfer Charley Hoffman, his wife Stacy and their daughters Claire and Katelyn enjoyed his pro tour in Marathon Show Coach #1279. One of his “neighbors” on tour was Marathon coach owner and pro golfer Bubba Watson. It’s no surprise that professional athletes are drawn to the comfort of luxury RVs as the majority of them spend countless hours on the road – for pro golfers, it’s typically 20 to 30 weeks per year. With privacy to decompress, a theater-like setup to watch the action airing live and a place to eat and connect with family, having a Marathon on tour allows professionals and enthusiasts alike to comfortably embrace all aspects of life.
