    UK trip - 2 nights/3 rounds

    Anyone got any bargains or great value deals?

    Not necessarily staying at the golf club either as I'd be happy to stay in a different hotel.
    Great courses and anywhere in the UK for a summer break.

    Budget - £325-400 per person.

    Cheers!

    That budget will allow basically anything not on the open rota

    Rent a house in Dornoch and play Royal Dornoch and Brora and then Boat of Garten on the road if coming that way

    I started in North Berwick last year and played there and gullane (twice). Rented an apartment with mates and was inside that. This year we are doing Norfolk on a similar basis and similarly under budget.

    We concentrate more on the golf than luxury accommodation, but that equation can be different for different tastes/abilities.

    Doesn't st Andrews do a good value multi day pass?

    I've organised 3 rounds of golf 2 nights hotel and 3 lots of food, (2x breakfast 1x dinner) including prize money for £150 each.


    If you took Mansfield/Nottingham as an example you good probably get Worksop, Hollinwell (Notts) and Coxmoor within your budget and have some beer money too


    or at the top end of your budget you could go to Norfolk and play links golf. Hunstanton, Sheringham and Cromer all about £80 each so enough left for your accomadation

    just done the Old and new at St Andrews for less than that, so anything goes i would say, but few others are.

    Castle Stuart do a Stay and play, which includes Royal Dornoch or Nairn in a 4 star hotel for around that with evening meals.

    also seen Trump deals, Turnberry and Aberdeen S&P as well as Gleneagles.

    My favourite venue for this is Dartmouth Golf and Country Club, now called the Dartmouth, fantastic course and hotel in the middle of the course so no need to travel anywhere although Dartmouth is worth a night out. Usually £150-180 per person.

    Depending on how accessible it it, I'd be heading for St Mellion.

    Dorset Golf Resort have a good deal, £220 pp for 2 nights 3 rounds, staying in an 8-sleeper lodge house. Should be a bit of fun, BBQ outside, sauna in the house, balcony, all that jazz. We're off there in July, should be a good laugh.

    They do 2 people lodge cabins right up to 8 or 10 sleeper ones.

    Just booked to go play Machrihanish Dunes and Dunaverty at the end of October. For your budget you might even be able to fly to Campbeltown.

    You'll struggle to find a more fantastic setting than Dunaverty
