The 7 Best Golf Hotels in the UK


Have you ever tried to book a hotel close to a golf course for your trip?

It can cause frustration, but at Groupia Golf, we remove the stress with hundreds of hotels just a putting distance from the fairways.

Check out our list of the 7 best golf hotels in the UK to sidestep the stress and build an epic trip.

Trump Turnberry Golf Resort

Trump Turnberry Golf Resort

📍Ayrshire, Scotland.

For those looking for activities after golf, this 2024 Forbes Five-Star award-winning resort is the business.

With air rifle shooting, kayaking, archery, and clay pigeon shooting, there’s no chance of boredom in your downtime. Don’t tackle it all at once.

On top of this, the hotel’s facilities from the incredible rooms to the fancy restaurants are unrivalled.

How the other half live…

Now, let’s get down to business. How about the Ailsa Course? Tee off on the 18th best in the world and leave your mark on this 4x Open host.

Best of all, it’s on the resort, so you can stroll to your tee time and get stuck in.

The Celtic Manor Resort Hotel

The Celtic Manor Resort Hotel

📍 Newport, Wales.

The peak of Welsh stay-and-play golf.

Relax and unwind at the grill-themed restaurant, the state-of-the-art spa facilities, or one of the six bars, and grab your favourite cocktail.


On-site is the Twenty Ten course, built for the Ryder Cup (we’ll let you guess what year it was for).  Split into teams and kickstart your Ryder Cup on the same course Tiger walked.

Montgomerie and Roman Road are sadly overlooked—but these fairways are not to be missed.

Be sure to swing into action on these gems too.

The Belfry Hotel & Resort

The Belfry Hotel & Resort

📍 Birmingham, England.

Possibly the best all-rounder, the Belfry Hotel is a true bucket-lister. Seriously.

This resort has all the essentials for an unforgettable trip, including full spa facilities, a steak restaurant, and top-tier rooms.

And that’s without mentioning the “Hotel Bar of the Year”. It’s perfect for a cheeky nightcap or pre-drinks before hitting the town.

Look, we don’t do half-arsed packages, so this one also features a Ryder Cup venue (which has hosted the most ever). The Brabazon Course is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It doesn’t stop there. The PGA National has hosted two European Tours, and it’s the only PGA course in England. Not too shabby…

The Belfry Resort is one of the best golf hotels in the UK.

Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa

Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa

📍 St. Andrews, Scotland.

Overlook the home of golf from your five-star hotel room.

With six restaurants, the world-famous “Jigger Inn”, and a unique spa, it’s easy to understand the popularity.

Shuttle transfers will have you at one of the Duke’s Course, Kingsbarns Links, or Dumbarnie Links within moments—a true taste of golf in its purest form.

You can’t beat a weekend of golf in St. Andrews.

St. Mellion Estate

St. Mellion Estate

📍 Plymouth, England.

One of Golf World Magazine’s Top 100 Resorts and home to a 14x European Tour host, prepare to take your golf trip to new heights.

It’s no joke.

Golf doesn’t get much better in the South West than the Nicklaus Course, featuring multi-tiered greens and strategically placed hazards, it’s no walk in the park.

After golf, crank up the competition on the tennis court and show off your backhand.

If you’re feeling fancy, book private dining for the group. What a way to celebrate.

The Oxfordshire Golf Hotel & Spa

The Oxfordshire Golf Hotel & Spa

📍 Oxford, England.

A luxury country house hotel located on the outskirts of Oxford, with a former European Tour course just a few steps away.

Enjoy some drinks with the gang at The Lakes Lounge, reward yourself with a steak at the restaurant, and unwind with a deep tissue massage to soothe your achy muscles.

Each room boasts a balcony or terrace, air-conditioning, and 24-hour room service. What more could you need to nurse a hangover?

The Oxfordshire course previously hosted a European Tour event, but now it can play host for your group.

Forest of Arden Country Club

Forest of Arden Country Club

📍 Sheffield, England.

Forest of Arden Country Club is possibly England’s best golf resort.

The Arden Course boasts of playing host to the British Masters and English Open. Live the dream and tee off on this legendary course.

Thanks to the forgiving fairways and shorter length, beginners will favour the Aylesford Course–but make no mistake, the Aylesford is top-tier.

Aside from the four-star facilities, the hotel is sandwiched between Birmingham and Coventry. Which nightlife will you conquer first?

Head here for one of the best golf hotels in the UK and raging nightlife.
