For some, visiting Dorset means a chance to unwind, soak up the sights and hunt out excellent restaurants. For others, however, it's the opportunity to get back into the 'swing' of things and indulge their passion for golf. With rolling countryside, Dorset has always been popular amongst golfers, offering challenging courses and formidable fairways throughout the calendar. There are some superb golf hotels in Dorset, close to some of the best courses in England. Whether you're looking for a B&B or an upmarket hotel, there's plenty to choose from.
Dorset is home to some of the best golf courses in the country. The Playgolf Bournemouth is a fantastic destination, whether you're a seasoned bunker-digger or can't tell a five-iron from a steam-iron! With classes for beginners, a superb driving range and a testing 18-hole course, there's something for golfers of all ages. You'll find a good selection of golf hotels close by, from the mid-range Hallmark Hotel Bournemouth East Cliff, to the high-end accommodation offered by the elegant Harbour Heights Hotel.
Another course of note is located in Weymouth. The Weymouth Golf Club is home to a notoriously tricky 18-hole course, with particularly narrow fairways and hazards to test even the most confident player. The grounds are expansive and immaculately maintained, offering the chance to play at any time of year. With Weymouth being a popular tourist destination, there is a good number of golf hotels springing up, such as the Langham Hotel and the impressive Moonfleet Manor Hotel.
After a hard day on the green, the last thing you want to be doing is pounding the streets, looking for a restaurant. This is why many golfers prefer golf hotels with a restaurant, on-site. Hotels such as the Chine Hotel and the Queens Hotel and Spa, in Bournemouth, not only boast stylish dining rooms and relaxing bars, but also have their own spas in which you can attend to any strains or tension that might be affecting your game.
Golf is popular in Dorset and, with a range of exceptional golf hotels in the region, you can keep on top of your passion, at your own pace.
