OVERVIEW

It is easy for golfers to think first of Scotland and Ireland as golf destinations, and naturally so, as some of the greatest golf courses that are surrounded with history and tradition are to be found there. It is also the fact that golf forms a focal point of tourism boards in these countries that enables them to remain top of mind. However, if one dwells deeper in the region, England really is second to none as a golf destination.

There are more golf courses in England than Scotland, Wales & Ireland put together. England is also home to some of the best championship courses in the world including Royal Birkdale, Royal St. George’s, Royal Lytham & St. Anne’s, Royal Liverpool, Sunningdale Old & New Courses. Six of the All Time Open Championship venues are to be found in this country.

There are multiple trails to pick for a golf holiday in England and there is little chance of being disappointed. Invariably, a traveller’s tracks will pass through London, so it is nice to know the options in the vicinity. There is no dispute however, about the ultimate golf destination in England – England’s Golf Coast.
