Our experienced staff will work out a golf package for you, so that you enjoy as many of the courses as possible during your stay. Our aim with the tee time bookings during your stay is to give you; a mixture of courses, a variety of tee times (morning and afternoon) whilst also spreading tee times evenly throughout the day and across all courses. To ensure we balance the courses we may not be able to offer multiple rounds on any one particular course. We reserve the right to pair up single and 2-ball pairings.
Golf is available every day throughout the year. During our Autumn to Spring months, we reserve the right to implement alternative Winter Courses.
