While Scotland understandably demands most of the attention of vacationing golfers to the British Isles, England and Wales should also be high on the list of places to stay and play.
England is a wonderful world of legendary golf courses, elegant resorts and hotels, lush countryside and gardens, friendly pubs, afternoon teas and fish and chips shops. Golf has been heavily entrenched in the English culture for centuries. With more than 1,900 golf clubs, there are more golf courses in England than Scotland, Wales and Ireland combined.
You’ll stay in luxurious resorts or quaint, amenity-rich, boutique hotels and play highly ranked courses--some of which are part of the Open Championship rotation.
Premier Golf can take you to places like the Lancashire Trail where you’ll tee up at iconic layouts with familiar names like Royal Birkdale, Royal Lytham & St. Annes, Royal Liverpool and Formby.
In Wales, a country in southwest Great Britain, a stunning rugged coastline, scenic mountain ranges, ancient castles and charming villages accent the impressive golf course menu. Wales hosted the 2010 Ryder Cup matches at Celtic Manor Resort in Newport and golf is an important part of the sports landscape there.
We can customize the ideal trip to maximize your golf experiences in Wales. One of our more popular itineraries includes play at the renowned Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, a seaside gem, and Pennard Golf Club, which overlooks Three Cliffs Bay.
If you’re seeking unique golf travel experiences in the British Isles, England and Wales are superb choices for lots of enjoyment on and away from the courses.
You need to be 100% focused on your game to play a great round of golf by avoiding countless hazards on and off the course. That is why TravelSafe created a product specifically for the modern golfer – GolfSafe Travel Protection.
