August 24, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsSuperbreak, the UK short break holiday specialist, in conjunction with Marriott Hotel and Country Clubs, is pleased to offer the perfect holiday package for UK golfers.
Although golf has exploded in its popularity during the past few years and has evolved significantly since its humble origins on the east coast of Scotland, becoming one of the world's most popular games, it is still in the UK that many of the worlds best courses can be found.
Superbreak has joined with Marriott Hotels to provide short golf break (http://www.superbreak.com/search/golf-breaks.htm ) opportunities to 16 of the best courses the UK has to offer. Included in these special packages are two rounds of golf with guaranteed prime tee times on championship level courses along with two nights Bed & Breakfast accommodation at the Marriot Hotel and Country Club of your choice.
Of the 16 courses available to choose from, seven are full championship level hosting some of Europe's top tournaments, including the Solheim Cup, the Compass Group English Open and the British Masters.
The settings for all of these courses can best be described as idyllic, and are suitable for players of all abilities, not just those who can play under par. Tuition is available for anyone who wants to advance their game, making these packages a great way to spend a quiet couple of days and improve your game at the same time.
Amongst the courses currently included in the Superbreak golfing portfolio are:
- Hanbury Manor golf course (http://www.superbreak.com/hotels/hotel-9741.htm ), which regularly hosts the English Open and is widely recognised as one of the best courses in the UK. Set within 200 acres of Hertfordshire countryside, the original Harry Vardon course, created in 1890, has been sympathetically redesigned by Jack Nicklaus II and now offers a truly memorable challenge through beautiful parkland, with many cleverly sited trees and water hazards.
- Breadsall Priory (http://www.superbreak.com/hotels/hotel-9745.htm ), which is situated in over 400 acres of beautiful parkland just a few miles from the Peak District National Park, and contains 2 golf courses which offer both exciting challenges and stunning views. The priory itself is a 13th Century Grade II listed building set alongside a charming ornamental lake and looks fantastic when framed against the tree lined fairways of the Championship Priory course or the from the challenging moorland course.
- Goodwood Park golf course. This picturesque course is set in the grounds of the 17th Century Goodwood House and home to the Duke of Richmond. While starting out as a fairly forgiving across the opening holes, this course becomes progressively more challenging as the turn approaches. Renowned for its friendly atmosphere, Goodwood Park golf course attracts players of all abilities and is a great place to learn the intricacies of the game.
The other courses available are Tudor Park, Meon Valley, Forest of Arden, Worsley Park, Sprowston Manor, Hollins Hall, St Piere and the great Dalmahoy courses which have hosted both the Solheim Cup and the Scottish PGA Championship.
These inclusive packages are a must for any fan of the ancient game.
