What makes a golf break in Chester so special?

Known for its inspiring countryside and country gardens, Chester is a great place for a golf break in England. The area is a great destination for a weekend golf trip, with the experience elevated by the amazing golf courses which only add to the aura of this beautiful place.

If you’re looking for value for money, then Chester is the place to be and there is so much to do aside from the golf.

Unbeatable on-site offerings

Carden Park, with its recently renovated Spa facilities, continues to be one of our most popular resorts, with two magnificent courses winding their way through the Cheshire countryside. With a standalone Golf Clubhouse offering fantastic views of the surrounding areas (as well as a great post-round beverage!) it’s the perfect companion to the decadence of the main hotel.

Slightly further East, Macdonald Portal Hotel is home to two testing golf courses, The Championship and The Premier. Additionally, the resort also has a 9-hole loop, The Arderne, for those looking to squeeze in some more time on course!

Our experts say...

Home to must-play golf resorts in close proximity to Liverpool and Manchester, Chester is perfect for golf groups.
