Tips for your UK golf break
The summer months are peak season for golfers in the UK, with the warmer and longer days making it the perfect time of year to enjoy a day out on the course. During peak season, golf enthusiasts from all over the world flock to the golf courses, which can result in higher fees and busier courses. If you want the best golf experience, we recommend playing in Springtime to benefit from pleasant weather, reasonable fees and quieter courses. Similarly last minute golf breaks in the UK are a great way to enjoy a luxury golf break at five-star hotels and esteemed golf courses for a fraction of the price.

Kevin very kindly arranged a break for my birthday back in August to St Mellion. Kevin was superb. Emailed me with full details and was not a problem when we had to change tee times. All done and notified by email very promptly. Will definitely use GTC for future breaks away. Ps. St Mellion was amazing 😁🏌🏼♀️
I used GTC for the first time in early October, for a golf weekend at Bovey Castle. It was a great break, other than the weather was so atrocious that we never even got to take the clubs out of the car. On our return, without being asked, GTC negotiated a complimentary 4 ball for us, to be used in the next twelve months. Really impressed, I will definitely use them again, if we are ever let out of the house again!
I booked a golf weekend for 6 people to Forest of Arden for September 2020. Booking was smooth and easy, great communication and service from GTC and our advisor Kevin. Everything was sorted with no hassle at a great price, leaving us to just get on with enjoying our weekend! Would recommend using GTC to anyone, and will use again for my next trip.
Excellent 2 day trip to the Belfry, arranged with ease through Golf Travel Centre. Cannot recommend the team enough. Will definitely use again. Thanks for a brilliant time, looking forward to going back to play the PGA course again.
Just back from 2 days at Oulton Hall on the golf and darts package. A great time was had by all and everything ran smoothly. Everything from booking and paying, to arriving and playing was easy and all taken care of. A great service I will use again. thanks
Just back from 2 days at The Belfry XLE. As always booking through GTC is effortless and everything runs smoothly. I highly recommend using this company they make everything easy. Can't wait to book my next trip.
Worsley Park Golf/Darts trip. Great service, always there if we needed. Got exactly what we asked for and there was no hidden fee’s. I’d definitely book with them again and would recommend!
We did a weekend away in the Belfry and it was a seamless experience. There was no hassle and everything was arranged for us including tee times. We simply turned up with the confirmation provided and everything went smoothly.
I recently booked a package to play 2 rounds at the belfry golf centre including 1 nights accommodation. I booked through Golf Travel Centre with Daniel Fry and was delighted with the service!!! Daniel handled everything including booking tee times etc and the whole trip was fully booked & complete within minutes. The trip itself was exactly what was advertised and didn’t disappoint at all! I will be definitely be using Golf Travel Centre again and would recommend to anyone!!!
Brilliant company to deal with Dean was fantastic couldn’t be more helpful, the trip to Celtic Manor was seamless no problems at all everything was organised so I could just relax and enjoy it can’t recommend them highly enough. 5 star service!
From Start to finish we had a great experience! Dean was fantastic in arranging everything for us and while at The Celtic Manor the staff couldn't do enough for us to make sure we had a great time! Will definitely be back!!
Brilliant trip and amazing courses at the Belfry. GTC sorted everything and made our trip seamless and hassle free. Can’t recommend them enough.
Will only book with GTC from now on! Fantastic service and brilliant value for money. When we arrived to Celtic manor everything was sorted and dinner booked. Was such an easy process to get booked. Celtic manor was amazing very well managed and we will be going again and will be booking with Dean again.
Just got back from Celtic manor!!! Fantastic experience and an exceptional service from golf travel centre and especially Dean Daley who made it very easy throughout 👌🏻 5 star
I booked a 2 day golf trip In March to Oxfordshire for 8 of us, including bed and breakfast. The hotel was excellent, course was in good condition, challenging but very fun to play. Two days of unlimited golf and B&B was incredible value. Booking with Patrick and Dan Fry at Golf Travel Centre was super easy and well organised on their behalf. Dan was especially helpful with tweaking our booking as needed. I would highly recommend them!!
Group of 8 of us visited The Belfry playing The Derby course followed by The Brabazon the following day. The Derby course was in good conditoin and allowed group to warm up for the fantastic Brabazon course. Staff were friendly with the check in process well organised with a desk by the pro shop. Food & drink a little pricey, but similar to other resorts I have visited. Hotel was very nice, with obvious investment in the rooms and bar areas. A good trip which was fantastic value for money.
5 of us travelled to the Oxfordshire. The hotel was great the course was superb. Dealing with Dean and the team easy and stress free. We arrived and all are names were at the desk. Rooms were ready early so we could settle in before hitting the course. Can't wait for the our next trip in the future. Thanks again!
2 rounds and a nights B&B at The Belfry for 6 of us. It went as smooth as could be, great service and dealt with any questions quickly and thoroughly. Highly recommend them and Dan couldn’t have been more helpful. Will be using them again.
I have recently got back from a group trip to East Sussex National booked with Golf Travel Centre. Everything was organised efficiently and it was a thoroughly enjoyable trip. I am looking to go back later in the year with my wife and another couple. Thanks to Patrick who dealt with me throughout.
I had the pleasure of having to book for a party of 12!!! They took all the pain out of booking - they were very knowledgeable and super organised for me. A thoroughly enjoyable UK golfing break package that also included dinner. Would certainly use them again to book future breaks!
