Golfing holidays can be booked all over the country and there are many different styles and characteristics of courses to suit all players. You can find inland 'Parkland' golf courses that are typically laid out with green fairways and mature trees, they are normally set out really well and challenge players by making shots into the holes tricky with hazards such as trees or bunkers. Most towns or cities in England, Scotland and Wales (and The Scottish Borders) will have a few golf courses to choose from and the prices can range - cheaper green fees doesn't necessarily mean the course is worse than a more expensive one and vice versa.

Short break and weekend golf holidays
More and more golfers are enjoying the multitude of courses available and are taking off for long weekends and short golfing mini breaks, a weeks holiday to play golf requires a patient family or a multi activity centre for the rest of the family. Groups of golfers often stay in rented accommodation there is a superb choice of large houses to rent, some cottages around complexes, other large holiday homes are easily accessible to large golfing areas. Many Golfers head for the coast to find 'Links' courses. These are the original style of course, typically built on the land 'linking' the sea and the mainland. Usually the Links are built on sand dunes covered in grasses, both short and long. Links Golf is often a challenge as the courses are sculpted in their surroundings, making accurate shots vital.
