Golf can be such a beautiful way to experience different parts of the UK, whether you’re a seasoned pro or a budding amateur. Combining that great pleasure with beautiful places to stay, wonderful food and exceptional hospitality, whether you’re staying at a spa hotel or a family-friendly retreat on the coast.

Choose from a mix of traditional links and gently rolling moorland sprigged with heather and gorse, or a wonderfully atmospheric Championship Links. Choose from Faversham, Canterbury, Princes in Sandwich Bay, Royal St George’s or iconic Scottish courses as Gleneagles, Turnberry and St Andrew’s. You can play rounds at locations that have hosted the Open and The Masters. Then return to the hotel in the evening for good food, drink and maybe even a massage.
