With The Open Championship teeing off today, what better time for us to reveal our favourite golf hotels? Give yourself a few days to hit the links, work on your swing and find a cold drink waiting for you in the bar…
This boutique hotel in the Tuscan countryside boasts one of our most impressive golf courses. Designed in 2006 by Baldovino Dassù and Brian Jorgensen, it’s one that will challenge golfers of all levels. The unique microclimate means you can play all year round. When you’re not on the course, swim in the pools or head to the spa. Chic Treat: complimentary dinner for two.
When you’re not putting away on the Santa Ponsa or Poniente golf courses (delivered there by free hotel shuttle), you can work on your swing at the golf academy, enjoy special golfer treatments in the spa or have your clubs cleaned at this Majorcan marvel. Chic Treat: half an hour in a golf simulator.
With stunning views of the Rampart Mountain, the 72-par Tamarina Golf Club is widely considered to be of the world’s most spectacular courses. Nearby, these Mauritian villas provide a wonderful retreat after days on the green, with two restaurants and a range of wellness treatments to keep you at your best and ready for another round. Chic Treat: Free water sports activities, to keep things fresh between golfing days.
You can’t pass up Barbados if you’re serious about golf – it is home to some of the best courses in the world. Guests at this boutique hotel have privileges with Apes Hill Golf Club, including reduced rates, transfers and club hire. You’ll also find the famed Royal Westmoreland close by, club of choice for celebs on the island. There’s also water sports, tennis and more, alongside the superb restaurants.
This small boutique Marrakech hotel is close to not one, not two, but three golf courses – Royal Golf, Amelkis and Al Maaden. The hotel can arrange a few days on the green, with or without professional golf coach Mathieu Terville. We also love the hammam and the authentic Moroccan dishes prepared with love by chef Aicha.
We normally talk about this boutique hotel in relation to its winery and spectacular views, but the friendly staff at this hotel would only be too pleased to create a golfing itinerary, with transport that takes you across some of Tuscany’s finest golf courses. Back at the hotel, eat very well some of the best restaurants in the region.
You’re close to ten stunning golf courses when you stay at this Algarve favourite, and the hotel can help you to explore all ten of them, with transfers and club hire to sweeten the deal. This hotel boasts one of Portugal’s few two-star Michelin restaurants and you’ll soon discover why people keep coming back for Dieter Koschina’s foodie creations.
