Score a hole in one with some of the UK's best golf breaks

The UK is where the sport of golf originated in the 15th century, so it's no surprise that it is the ideal place for a relaxing break playing a few rounds of golf. Scotland is the obvious choice for UK golf breaks, with both coastal and inland courses, but other parts of the UK are definitely worth considering too.

The UK's Best Golf Holidays on a Budget

Golf doesn't deserve its reputation as a pricey sport. It is possible to avoid the hefty green fees by doing a little bit of planning ahead and heading to hidden gems of courses which are just as challenging and fun as the household names.

  • 1. St Andrews

    All golfers want to play a round at St Andrews but consider playing on the New or Jubilee Course rather than the famous Old Course. Green fees are half the price of the Old Course, yet you still have the authentic St Andrews experience.

  • 2. Castlerock

    The most famous golf course in Northern Ireland is probably Portstewart but its next door neighbour Castlerock is also worth a visit. Rates are reasonable, coastal views are spectacular and booking UK golf breaks here also offers the opportunity to explore the Giant's Causeway or Bushmills distillery.

  • 3. West Derby

    Some of the UK's best value golf is on the outskirts of Liverpool, at West Derby. The 6,275 yard par 72 course is set in mature parkland, providing a challenge for even the most experienced golfer. Tee times can be booked online or by calling the course ahead of your visit.

The UK's Most Beautiful Golf Courses

One of the best reasons to choose a UK golf break is the variety of landscapes in a relatively small country. Should you choose to do so you could play a parkland course in the morning and be close enough for another 18 holes on a links course in the afternoon.

  • 1. Nefyn and District Gold Course

    The unique feature of this Welsh course is the Point, a narrow promontory of land jutting out into the sea. Nefyn has 27 holes and panoramic views across the sea from every tee. Combine the three loops of 9 holes each in whichever way you wish to make your 18.

  • 2. Slaley Hall

    Northumberland's Slaley Hall course is regularly compared to Augusta, as it has the same feel with lakes, tall trees and expanses of rhododendron bushes. This is a tricky course, known to catch out even the most experienced golfers.

  • 3. Braid Hills

    The Braid Hills course is on the edges of Edinburgh in the Pentland Hills and, as the name suggests, offers rapid changes in height across the holes. The views from the course take in both the Edinburgh skyline and the Firth of Forth.
