Opinion is divided as to Britain’s best golf courses. But beyond dispute is that the country is the birthplace of golf and the capital city is home to the world’s first golf club. Across Britain, the opportunities to play golf on exciting, challenging and varied courses are legendary. Fans can play on the same links as golfing heroes of today and yesteryear; and then relax in clubhouses steeped in the legends of the game.

If championship courses are a must then a visit to Britain comes high on the list. There are the legendary courses that are treated as places of pilgrimage even by international golf stars and numerous famous competitions take place on Britain’s green turf.

British golf courses have a location for everyone: glorious ‘links’ courses presenting windswept challenges, legendary heathland courses and lush parkland courses.

Superb countryside enables guests to get active and explore the natural beauty. From north to south, there are exciting options from walking a heritage trail to taking on a new challenge on land, sea or in the sky. Pedal power opens up the drama and charm of hidden Britain. Meander rural cycle paths through picturesque villages and ancient woodland; or take to the uplands for something more strenuous.

For those wanting to don their walking boots, the choice is just fantastic. From long trails to short explorations of beauty spots, there is something from almost every port of call. Think great sea views from cliff-top paths … think cityscapes and heritage walks along legendary ways and walls.
