Golfers accommodation in Northumberland

With both European and senior domestic golf tours held regularly in Northumberland, it can be quickly appreciated that the county is a great place for golf, being as it is, home to some great golf courses.

And many of these courses not only offer great spectacular Northumberland vistas and views, but are true links courses, such as Dunstanburgh Castle, Goswick, Newbiggin-by-the-Sea and Warkworth, to mention but a few of those near the coast, if not by the sea. And championship courses such as Burgham Park, home of the PGA North Region Championship and the fine Slaley Hall can be found further inland. But don’t think it’s all major courses aimed at the serious golfer – there are plenty of courses for beginners and intermediates, as well as a number of driving ranges scattered around the county.

Joining in the golf!

The holidaymaker on a golf break, whether it’s a special golf break weekend or with family where they play golf on a less frequent basis during their stay, will fully appreciate the convenience of self-catering accommodation. This allows your group (big or small) freedom to come and go as you please, take your meals when you want and perhaps enjoy a late morning in bed without the fear of being turned out so the room can be made up! And with the choice of accommodation from large cottages and apartments to lodges and big houses, you can choose the accommodation type that best suits both family and budget. Similarly with golf - if you are a beginner or an expert scratch player looking for links or parkland courses, there is a great variety for you here. Book your green fees here

Golf in The Scottish borders

Further north to the Scottish Borders and perhaps one of the most picturesque counties in Scotland. It’s now a great area for golf, having previously been noted mainly for its nine-hole holiday courses. There are now 21 golf courses to choose from, several of which are quite demanding 18-hole courses, including Hawick and Roxburghe, home of the Charles Church Scottish Seniors Open. And golfing has improved to the stage where legends such as Tony Jacklin, Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie speak very highly of the Borders golf clubs. So much so that Cardrona, the most recently built golf club in the Borders, has been called the 'Gleneagles of the South'.

Similarly to Northumberland, there is also a great range of self-catering accommodation of all descriptions available to the holidaymaker, helping to make your golfing escape from daily life all the more enjoyable.

Whether its golf in Northumberland or golf in the Borders (or both!), there is also plenty to see and do for the non-golfing members of the family – a laze on the beach where the golf club is by the sea, shopping, visiting museums and attractions and even walking, to mention but a few. Most golf clubs will be near good local facilities of some description, so you will be able to leave the golfer to it for the day.
