2. Ayrshire

The west coast of Scotland has always been a hotbed of excellent courses, with the iconic Open venues of Royal Troon, Prestwick, and Turnberry hugging the coastline. However, recent years have seen incredibly strong additions from the likes of Dundonald Links (with its first-class on-site lodging), as well as continual developments to the brilliant layouts at both Western Gailes and Glasgow Gailes Golf Courses.

It's the ideal trip north of the border for those who may have already experienced golf in St Andrews, or who are simply looking for a trip that takes in some of the most highly-rated golf courses in the whole of the UK.

4. Majorca

Despite its incredible golfing climate, Majorca has only grown to its current level of popularity amongst golfers over recent years. The island has long been a go-to holiday destination for Brits, however, the addition of some excellent golfing facilities has now made it one of our most booked getaways too!

6. Lisbon

One of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities, Lisbon is a great choice for your 2023 golf holiday. The city itself is jam-packed with stunning architecture, incredible cuisine, and a bustling nightlife. However, if that wasn’t enough, the area is also home to some of our favourite courses in the country. Some of the standalone courses we love include Troia Golf, Golf Do Estoril, and Oitavos Dunes.

10. South Carolina

Finally, perhaps 2023 is the year that you finally head to the States? South Carolina is an ideal first step for a golf holiday to the USA – we love it so much that we based our US office there! Myrtle Beach, Charleston, Kiawah Island, and Hilton Head Island are all within driving distance of each other – although, with multiple courses in each destination, there’s no need to travel far for some variety.

There’s regular PGA TOUR stops such a Harbour Town Golf Links, as well as the PGA Championship layout at Kiawah Island to keep you on your toes. Whilst there’s plenty to get stuck into away from the course, South Carolina really does value the quality of its golf on offer, we’d recommend a base close to your favourite courses and skipping around them as often as your legs will allow!

Hilton Head Island

Regardless of where you stay, you’ll experience the unbeatable Southern hospitality, and some of the freshest seafood you’re ever likely to taste. Our top tip? Check out flight deals around the Christmas period to really maximise value on your trip. You could even put any savings towards an extra round …

Feeling inspired?
Whether you're exploring well-known destinations like Spain or discovering Morocco's culture, there's no shortage of options for your 2023 golf break.
