England’s Atlantic Links, the six leading links courses in south west England, is offering some sizzling summer golf packages for 2014.
The north Devon links of Saunton, east and west courses, and Royal North Devon or the Cornish combination of Trevose and St Enodoc a little further down the coast, plus a visit to Burnham & Berrow in Somerset on the way down, make for the perfect two-night, three-round trip from only £318.
For those with more time on their hands, a leisurely tour along the north Atlantic Links to play all six courses, staying seven nights, costs from £772.
A wide variety of alternative packages can be found at www.atlantic-links.co.uk provided by Countrywide Golf Holidays, who are also able to tailor-make itineraries according to individuals’ budgetary requirements and accommodation preferences.
When comparing the south west breaks available with a number of golf clusters in Scotland, Wales and northern England that feature a similar standard of links golf courses, England’s Atlantic Links stands out as offering tremendous value.
“In our eyes, a golf trip to the Atlantic Links delivers premier links golf at ‘half the price, but twice the experience’,” comments Nick Gammon, manager at Trevose Golf & Country Club.
“In addition to great golf, the south west provides charming, yet reasonable hotel and self-catering accommodation alongside a wide range of restaurants and local pubs that offer fresh, local cuisine in addition to the region’s well-known seafood, cream teas and cheddar! If you are bringing your family, there are many off-course activities to entertain the kids such as surfing, fishing, walking, cycling and horse riding as well as local attractions that include Tintagel Castle, The Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Tate St Ives and the nearby Barbara Hepworth Museum.”
In terms of accessibility, the M4 &M5 motorways and A39 “Atlantic Highway”, and international airports at London, Birmingham, Bristol, Exeter and Newquay, ensure the south west is easy to get to for all visitors.
