The Picturesque Golf Courses to Play This Bank Holiday Weekend

By: Golfshake Editor | Fri 28 May 2021 | Comments

With hospitality, entertainment, sports and tourism gradually reopening, this Bank Holiday Weekend is set to be a memorable one, with many of us destined to visit the golf course - but which one should you play?

As hotels welcome back guests, and the weather forecast to turn positively, many Brits will be looking to get back out onto the golf course and make the most of the long weekend. 

With that in mind, PlayMoreGolf has compiled a group of the most picturesque golf courses across the UK, so budding golfers can not only enjoy a round with family and friends but take a walk in the sun around some of the most spectacular open spaces you can find.


Cavendish Golf Club


Situated in Buxton, Derbyshire, Cavendish Golf Club was opened in 1925 and designed by Dr Alister MacKenzie, whose list of courses includes the iconic Augusta National (home of The Masters). The club is regarded by experts to be MacKenzie's 'Inspiration for Augusta' and it's easy to see why. With undulating fairways, sloping greens, and well thought out hazards, there are many holes at Cavendish that mirror many of those found at Augusta National.

Whitby Golf Club

Whitby Golf Club

Having originally been founded at Goathland in 1892, Whitby Golf Club has been located in this stunning clifftop location between Whitby and Sandsend since 1895. There are wonderful views along the coast between Kettleness and the iconic Whitby Abbey and views inland towards the rolling North York Moors. Wherever you are on the course you are guaranteed a view of the sea!

Scarborough South Cliff Golf Club

Considered by many as one of the finest courses in the North of England, the greatest charm of the course is the glorious situation of the holes on the cliff, looking down on the South Bay and Scarborough Town on the one side and along the bold and rugged coastline towards Filey on the other.

Bridport and West Dorset Golf Club

Bridpot and West Dorset

An outstandingly beautiful vista awaits all who play the course with scenic views not only over the sea and shore, but inland to the two highest points in Dorset, Pilsdon Pen and Lewesdon Hill. The course abounds with wildlife and the singing of a skylark is a regular sound to be heard.

Cape Cornwall Club

Cape Cornwall Club is often described as one of Cornwall's hidden gems. It is a truly unique place to get away, relax and unwind in comfortable informal surroundings that has a touch of Cornish charm with contemporary styling. Situated on the wild and rugged cliff tops of the Cornish coastal path and overlooking ''Poldarks'' Brison rocks, this is a great destination to stay and explore this wonderful area.

Forfar Golf Club

Forfar Golf Club

The course is sited on beautiful, wooded heathland. The terrain is almost 'links' like with undulating fairways lined by Scots Pine and lovely views towards the Angus Glens. With links like surface, parkland avenues, heathland heather and gorse, this makes Forfar such an interesting course to play. This course is also the world's first 18-hole course from inception & inauguration, designed by Tom Morris in 1871.
