Golf and spa go hand-in-hand when it comes to golf breaks, so it is no wonder golf and spa packages are so popular among our customers. Indulging in a massage, or doing a few laps in the heated pool, certainly counteracts the stresses and strains you often, incidentally, pick up during a round of golf.

Plus, with some of the best spa and golf breaks based right here in the UK, you don’t have to travel far to find yourself indulging in true relaxation.

Gleneagles (Scotland)

Winner of the Best UK Spa in the Good Spa Guide 2017 Awards, The Spa at Gleneagles by ESPA is just as high quality as the four golf courses on offer at this Ryder Cup venue.

The Gleneagles Resort

The Scottish venue is one of a highly select group of destinations in the world to be designated a Luxury Spa Resort, and offers an extensive menu of traditional therapies and complementary wellness treatments, designed to relax and rejuvenate both body and mind.

The Grove, London's Country Estate (England)

The Grove may be a previous British Masters host venue, and one of the finest luxury golf courses in England, but it is also home to the impressive Sequoia luxury spa. Ideally located just outside London, here you can embark on a journey to ultimate relaxation through a carefully selected menu of Natura Bisse and ESPA treatments.

The Grove Golf Course

The spa was also named the Best Spa in the West Midlands and East at the 2018 Good Spa Guide Awards.

Celtic Manor (Wales)

Not only are there three outstanding golf courses on-site, including the Ryder Cup hosting Twenty Ten Course, but there are also two spas to choose from in the award-winning Forum Spa and Ocius. The former allows guests to ease their stresses away through modern spa treatments and therapies.

Twenty Ten Course, Celtic Manor

The term Ocius comes from the Latin word for 'quick', and here you can find a range of express beauty and wellbeing treatments from facials to massages.

Trump Doonbeg International Golf Links & Hotel (Ireland)

The stunning Trump Doonbeg International Golf Links & Hotel is home to the White Horses Spa, in the natural environment of the County Clare coastline, which provides endless inspiration for treatments.

Doonbeg Golf Links

When you aren’t indulging in a signature Basalt Stone (like that found at Giant’s Causeway) massage, you will be blown away by the Greg Norman-designed course, where powerful winds off the Atlantic Ocean challenge you on every shot.
