Golf is one of the most popular sports in the UK currently. If you are a keen golfer you will have a favourite local course that you enjoy playing on regularly. However, sometimes it is good to ring the changes.  If you only play one course and get to know it very well, some of the challenge diminishes over time.  One of the best ways to enjoy playing golf on other courses is by booking a golf break. Short golf breaks offer a winning combination of excellent golf and relaxation. Whether you are a couple, a group of keen golfers or simply a group of friends wanting a fun weekend away, a golf break can offer superb golf in a beautiful environment: A chance to relax and have fun away from the bustle of every-day life.  We are lucky here in Shropshire to have access to many wonderful courses perfect for a golf break.

What makes a good short golf break?

For most golfers looking to book a break the golf comes first. The highest priority is finding a great quality golf course. Many golfers prefer beautiful rural surroundings offering wonderful views to accompany their round. The course you choose may also depend on the mix of golfing abilities in your group. If there is a range of experience within the group it may be worth looking for a course that is suitable for beginners but still offers some level of challenge for those who have been playing longer.

Next you need to look at accommodation. One of the easiest forms of golf break is to stay at a golf hotel. Many golf hotels offer leisure facilities, comfortable accommodation and good quality food.This is important if you are bringing non-golfers away with you too. They can enjoy making use of the other facilities while you enjoy your golf. You might not feel the need to leave the hotel for the entire break.

If however, you enjoy exploring when you go away it is worth considering the environment your golf break will be in. What is in the area surrounding the golf course and hotel? Beautiful countryside?  Small Market Towns to explore? The excitement and bustle of a city?

Here in Shropshire we are very lucky. There is plenty to see and do to compliment your golf break.  We have stunning countryside that is perfect for a gentle walk, pretty towns and villages with independent shops and nice pubs and a wonderful variety of galleries, museums and land marks.
