4 Great Value For Money UK Golf Breaks in 2023

By: Liam Moore | Wed 17 May 2023

Not every golf trip requires an endless pit of money as there are fantastic offerings for budget golf trips. Golfers who want to play the greatest courses that the UK can offer will unfortunately be vulnerable to the higher prices, but there are several resorts that can be experienced for a relatively small fee. Below, we provide insight into four great value for money venues and what you can expect at each of them.

Macdonald Hill Valley Hotel, Golf & Spa

Hill Valley

Macdonald Hill Valley is located in Shropshire and the fantastic resort boasts two outstanding golf courses and luxurious accommodation packages to match. The Emerald Course is the flagship layout at Hill Valley and it presents a real challenge with sweeping fairways and numerous water hazards. Additionally, the Sapphire routing is shorter and more forgiving than its sibling, with the design to encourage newcomers to the sport and help hone the ability of novice golfers.

Situated just 20 miles from Chester, the 4* resort is home to 86 stylish guestrooms split into classic, family, club classic, executive, feature and accessible rooms - with all the amenities needed for your stay supplied. Guests will have the option of either dining at the Sports Bar and Lounge Bar, or the classier Border’s Restaurant; the Hill Valley Lounge Bar provides spectacular views of the surrounding golf course.

Cotswolds Hotel & Spa

Cotswolds Golf

Cotswolds Hotel & Spa has an extensive history after first opening their doors in 1890 - meaning this is one of the oldest golf clubs in the Oxfordshire area. It is often regarded as one of the best courses within the district as the 6,284-yard par-72 layout features immaculate year-round greens and sensational views of the Cotswolds countryside. Accuracy will be the order of the day as the tree-lined fairways make positioning off the tee a premium.

With 114 rooms designed in a contemporary style, the guestrooms exude a relaxing atmosphere. Each room is equipped with a flat screen HD TV, WiFi access and local magazines for visitors to indulge in. The main restaurant located on site features sweeping views of the golf course and provides a varied menu for guests to choose from. Completing the offering is the terrace, a popular hotspot during the early evenings for drinks and sunset experiences.

The Vale Resort

The Vale Resort

The Vale Resort is located in Cardiff and the quality of golf on offer should not be underestimated. There are two fabulous courses at The Vale; the Wales National is known for being one of the longest courses to reside outside of America with a whopping 7,433-yard marking from the championship tees. Equally as challenging is the Lake Course, which has hosted several Welsh PGA professional competitions. Controlling your ball will be the biggest obstacle as water comes into play on 12 holes!

The Vale Resort has earned its revered reputation and it remains a popular hotspot for travelling UK golfers. Complementing the outstanding golf facilities is a 4* resort that is home to a collection of rooms consisting of family and executive rooms with junior suites also available. Golfers will also be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining, as The Vale Resort boasts several eateries to provide golfers with varied choice.

DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort

Glasgow Westerwood

Only 12 miles from Glasgow city centre lies DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort, a fantastic option for anyone travelling to Scotland for a golf trip. The golf course measures 6,307 yards and features a par of 72, with silver birches, heath and heathers providing an element of defence for the superb layout.

With 148 bedrooms - all of which are designed in a modern fashion - there is plenty of room at Westerwood. Flemings Restaurant features fantastic dishes that are created from the finest Scottish produce and the restaurant holds an AA Rosette. Golfers looking for an informal environment will find it at the upstairs Bar & Grill.

Golfers often regard golf trips as expensive and not attainable; there is a collection of resorts and golf clubs that offer fantastic services for a small fee. The four resorts listed provide fantastic value for money and we could not recommend them enough for a budget golf break.
