Thousands of Golfers Target Post-Lockdown Play at QHotels
We have been living through nearly a full year of uncertainty, likely with more to come, but despite that many golfers are looking forward with optimism and planning ahead after it was revealed by the QHotels Group that 25,000 people had already booked to stay at its family of golf resorts in 2021.
The golf resort operator and its seven golf resorts in England and Scotland have been inundated with enquiries from players eager to enjoy a golf holiday when the latest restrictions are lifted.
Hotels and golf clubs in England are currently closed, but the QHotels Group has reported that it has so far booked in around 40,000 golf rounds for guests on its courses in 2021, with Belton Woods, in Grantham, Lincolnshire, and DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort, in Brigg, proving particularly popular with golfers eager to celebrate when the latest lockdown ends.
Sunday is the favourite day of the week for golfers to visit so far in 2021, while the QHotels Group is predicting a hectic start to the golf season for golf resorts nationwide with April, May and June already proving very busy.
In addition, the resort operator is also reporting high levels of membership enquiries across its venues from people interested in joining during lockdown.

Richard Moore, group chief executive of the QHotels Group, said: “It continues to be a difficult time for everyone in the UK hospitality industry so to see these advance numbers for 2021 is very positive.
“Everybody wants something to look forward to in lockdown and golfers are no exception. Just like me, I’m sure everyone is itching to get back out there on the fairways and, hopefully, we’ll be able to welcome people back to our resorts in record numbers from spring onwards.”
Providing some needed cheer, the QHotels Group has a Winter Sale, with one-night, two-round breaks on offer from just £89 per person.
Bookable throughout 2021, the eye-catching breaks feature two rounds of golf as well as overnight hotel accommodation, a full English breakfast and evening meal, as well as the QHotels Group’s Flexible Booking Guarantee which allows guests to make changes to their booking free of charge should plans change.
The QHotels Group operates seven top golf resorts in England and Scotland: Belton Woods, in Grantham, Lincolnshire; Dunston Hall, in Norwich; Oulton Hall, Leeds; Slaley Hall, in Hexham, Northumberland; Telford Hotel & Golf Resort, in Shropshire; DoubleTree by Hilton Forest Pines Spa & Golf Resort, in Brigg; and DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort.
