Links course

The ever-changing wind means every game is different. Links courses can be found all around the UK and some of the more famous include;

  • Lytham St Anne’s
  • Royal Troon
  • Carnoustie
  • Royal Birkdale

Parkland Course

A parkland course is usually found inland and designed to incorporate the natural geography, such as lakes, trees, streams. They feature lawn-like fairways and strategically placed bunkers and are normally in beautiful locations, rather than the changeable conditions of a links course, parkland courses encourage consistency, better for beginners, they can still provide a challenge. Some of the best parkland courses include;

  • Sunningdale
  • The Belfry
  • Wentworth
  • Woodhall Spa (see Lakeside Lodge above)
  • The Grove

There are over 2,500 golf courses in the UK so whichever type of course you prefer you will be guaranteed to find a lodge or cottage with it's own private hot tub nearby.

Links V Parkland

There are some splendid lodges throughout the UK which are close to both links and parkland golf courses but what’s the difference?


Depending where you want to play green fees vary massively for example a round of golf at championship course The Grove in Hertfordshire will cost around £150 whereas there are some excellent courses which charge as little as £10 per round.

Some player’s want the experience of walking in the footsteps of champions and are willing to pay for the privilege but if you are on a budget it pays to do some research before you book your hot tub golfing cottage or lodge.

Tips to save money on your golfing trip

  • Go out of season – Most golf courses have winter rates even the more expensive ones, so you can save money by going out of season.
  • Avoid peak times – These are usually between 9-11 am while it may seem tempting to play golf in the morning leaving the rest of the day free you may get a better offer on an afternoon tee time.
  • Mid-week breaks – As above golf courses will be much busier at weekends with the locals off work too so try to book a mon-fri short break if possible for cheaper green fees.
  • Multiple rounds – While it is tempting to play at every course possible when on holiday you will be able to get special offers for multiple rounds at the same course for example Banchory Golf Club in Aberdeenshire charges £38 for 1 round or £50 for 2. Bargain!
  • The more the merrier – We’re not saying you should cancel that romantic weekend and invite all your friends, but the fact is golf courses offer some great offers and special packages for groups and with some lodges sleeping up to 20, why not make the most of them.

Packing essentials for a golfing holiday

Of course, you will need your golf clubs but there are other essential items to put in your suitcase when staying at golf lodges, especially if booking a winter break.

To say the weather is unpredictable in this country is an under-statement and even in the height of summer it can change at a moments’ notice, so layers are always the best option.

A good base layer is important in chilly weather so pack a compression shirt which will help regulate body temperature without being bulky. A waterproof jacket and pants are also essential as you won’t enjoy a round of golf if you’re wet and miserable.

Comfortable feet are also important bring 2 pairs of shoes as there is nothing worse than walking the following day in damp shoes, plus some extra socks to avoid blisters.

Wool hats, gloves, or mittens should also find their way into your luggage as they are vital for cold, windy or wet conditions.

Try to pack extra balls and accessories such as tees and markers, while most golf courses boast a shop, items can be expensive, and they should be used to treat yourself or for essentials.

Some other useful items include;

  • Sunscreen
  • Plasters
  • A Handwarmer
  • Ziploc bags
  • Tie (some courses have strict dress codes)
  • Small towel
