In 850 acres of Perthshire countryside, this iconic Scottish hotel has three of the country’s top golf courses, which have hosted both the Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup in recent years. Amateurs and pros alike can head to The Queen’s Course, a very fine par-68 heathland course, or there’s an additional 54 holes over on the Centenary Course. The hotel itself has everything you need for a luxury stay, from plush bedrooms and suites to outdoor activities like horse riding, falconry and cycling. Relax at the spa, sample Scottish produce at one of its the many restaurants, or head to the 20s-inspired cocktail bar for drinks.
Rooms from £244 per night
The Belfry, Warwickshire
The Belfry has hosted the Ryder Cup four times – more than any other venue in the world. The Brabazon is a challenging course for all-comers, while the Derby has far-reaching views across the Warwickshire countryside. An array of golf packages range from two rounds on a course and dinner to two-night stays with breakfast and three rounds of golf. The on-site Ryder Grill is the place for quality steaks and chargrilled seafood, or relax with a burger and pint at Sam’s Club House. The hotel also opens its pizza and pasta bar during weekends – ideal if you’ve got kids in tow.
Rooms from £189 per night
Trump Turnberry, Ayrshire
With a string of awards to its name, Trump Turnberry encompasses an array of excellent courses. In Ayrshire on the south-west coast, it’s home to the legendary Ailsa, host of four Open Championships, as well as two 18-hole courses and a 9-holer. Ailsa is known for its tough opening holes and is tricky for even the most skilled golfers, while the others are more suited to leisurely play. Book the Family Room if you’ve got kids in tow, or choose one of the villas, situated in the grounds of the hotel, for a group trip.
Rooms from £206 per night.
