What is a golf tour?

Put simply, a golf tour is a break in which you play multiple courses, while usually based in a centrally located hotel in a town like Bournemouth or popular golfing region like East Lothian. You’ll be within easy driving distance of the best courses in the area and situated nearby the local bars and restaurants.

Why book a golf tour?

A golf tour enables golfers to experience a wider variety of courses and experience venues which don’t include on-site accommodation, which are often the best courses in the UK. Try a variety of layouts during your tour – from parkland to links, Open Championship venues to hidden gems, mix and match based on your preference and budget.

Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Liverpool

Enjoy city or town centre accommodation and be at the heart of the action – with restaurants, nightlife, and a taste of the local culture on your doorstep. Why not choose a destination you’ve never visited before to combine sightseeing and cultural activities with your golf? Visit historic sites in St Andrews or go whiskey tasting in Edinburgh, the choice is yours.

We offer a wide range of accommodation options. From quaint B&Bs and family-run hotels, to five-star city hotels – we can book it all and offer you the right advice!
