The North East of England has enjoyed a real boost in its profile as a leading English golf travel destination over the last few years due to the success of the British Masters European Tour event which takes place at Close House.

Although Close House is a truly excellent venue and top class golf resort for a stay and play break in the North East of England, there are other great options for a golf holiday at venues such as Rockcliffe Hall Hotel Golf & Spa, Slayley Hall with it’s 2 fantastic courses and the Macdonald Linden Hall Golf & Country Club.
Added to these stay and play options is the possibility to combine a city break in the cosmopolitan and lively city of Newcastle with golf at any number of regional courses that are close to the city including at Hexham, Northumberland, Close House and any of the other golf resorts as previously discussed…

England’s largest county offers a commensurate number of golf holiday options with great golf travel venues available throughout Yorkshire.

There’s little doubt that if asked the question, then most English golfers would probably select The Belfry as the highest profile and most famous golf resort in England, and having hosted the Ryder Cup more times than any other venue in the UK, Europe or the USA then it’s easy to understand why it has the profile it does.
However, golf breaks in the Midlands and Eastern England region really is about a whole lot more than just The Belfry!
Quality golf resorts abound with the Marriott group being particularly well represented with both the Marriott Forest of Arden and Marriott Breadsall Priory resorts offering a quality stay & play golf experience, alongside other excellent golf break destinations such as Belton Woods, Doubletree Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort and Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire – with the latter being the home of England Golf, plus Dunston Hall Golf Resort in Norfolk…
In recent years the option of a Norfolk Coast Golf Tour has proven to be increasingly popular with some fantastic high pedigree golf courses such as Royal West Norfolk, Sheringham, The Links Country Park, Royal Cromer and the ground-breaking new golf course at Royal Norwich offering the most fantastic and welcoming experience for visiting golfers. For golf in the East Anglia region there are plenty of superb accommodation options both on the coast in picturesque towns such as Cromer and Sheringham, or in the county town of Norwich itself.
