Our Guide to the Best Tours of the UK

This week’s blog is an insight into the new UK golf tour packages that are currently being put together to give you the opportunity to stay in a fabulous hotel and  to play several golf courses nearby to get the most out of your golf break. With January finally over it is time to start planning for when the weather will get that bit better and you will get to go back to playing rounds of superb golf in the UK.  There is no better way to embrace the springtime weather and the courses that the UK has to offer you than by booking a tour…

 

Our Bournemouth tour offers you two nights at the stunning four-star Hallmark West Cliff which boasts an ideal location being just 10 minutes from the town centre and eight minutes from the beautiful beach. Whilst here, besides enjoying the fantastic golf that is on offer, you can enjoy the extensive leisure facilities from the heated pool and gym to the spa facility. Although use of the spa facility requires a small additional charge it is definitely worth it to get the full enjoyment and relaxation out of your golf break. Being such a short journey into the town centre you have unlimited dining and drinking options but the brasserie restaurant at the hotel is a fantastic option if your round on the golf course has taken it out of you! This is a lovely hotel and is no surprise that it is the base for the Bournemouth tour with its fantastic facilities and even better golfing options nearby…

The Dudsbury Golf Club’s Championship course has been the venue for several prestigious golfing events such as the BMW PGA Order of Merit Championship and the PGA Europro Tour and if you want to see why this was the course picked then there is no better opportunity than this! The course is set in a beautiful location, amongst 160 acres of Dorset countryside which just makes the round here more enjoyable. There is no doubt that the 16th hole is a feature hole where you will have to show yourself to be a good driver in order to reach the green across two lakes! For after your round, the clubhouse is a fantastic place to sit and relax whilst enjoying more views of the Stour Valley and of course, a cold drink!

The second course for this Bournemouth tour is the Championship course at Meyrick Park which is a demanding test of golf set amongst stunning Dorset countryside. It is an undulating parkland course with many challenges even for a golfer with the lowest handicap. The opening hole is a spectacular one where your driver is over a valley to the small green which is cut out of the hill. This is a great, challenging course which always seems to be in perfect condition and it is a fantastic addition to the Bournemouth tour.

Our second tour is the Kent Golf Coast tour where you are based at The Lodge at Princes Golf Club. The Lodge is the former clubhouse of Princes Golf Club and has been extensively renovated to provide guests with luxury accommodation and breathtaking views of the two great golf courses as well as across the Sandwich bay. The Brasserie restaurant is situated on the bay and provides a great dining experience for guests here with the use of local Kentish produce as well as an outdoor terrace to enjoy a cocktail or beer on after your meal! The Lodge is just over a 10-minutes’ drive into the medieval town of Sandwich where you can find great pubs, independent shops, art galleries and some historic churches. This is a fantastic and unique place to get the opportunity to stay and with the two golf courses so nearby it is not hard to see why this is a sure winner for your next golf break to the UK…

Princes Golf Club is a modern championship links course set on the Kentish coast. This is a 27-hole course comprising of three loops of nine holes: Himalayas, Dunes and Shore. This course has some of the best facilities with excellent practice facilities, attentive staff and a beautiful clubhouse for you to enjoy your post-round drink in! This is a long and challenging course at over 7200 yards but there are a few different tee positions from which those with higher handicaps can tee off from, making it less of a challenge and more of a holiday course!

Princes

The Royal St George’s Golf Club is considered to be one of the finest links courses in England and has been selected to be the venue for The Open Championship no less than 14 times. This course requires accuracy and concentration if you are to score even close to your handicap due to the many blind shots that you will be required to take and bunkers that you have to avoid! This is a fantastic course and although can be a challenge for golfers of all abilities, it has some very interesting holes and scenery – the 4th on the Himalayas loop will definitely not disappoint! To round off the Kent Coast tour this course is perfect.

These are just two of the fabulous UK golf tours and with more based in Norfolk, Northern Ireland and Oxford (just to name a few!) there is definitely something for everyone and in the unlikely case that there isn’t something perfect for you there are several other destinations that can be discussed just by picking up the phone…
