If golfing is in your blood, then the thought of some downtime is probably sending you reaching for your five-iron. Hampshire is well known for its superb golf courses and attracts both absolute amateurs and practised professionals throughout the year. There are a good number of golf hotels in Hampshire, ranging from those near to golf clubs and courses to those with their own on-site golfing facilities. Whatever you want from your time in Hampshire, there's sure to be something to suit.
Golf Hotels in Hampshire
Golf is popular in Hampshire. As a county that's blessed with plenty of wide open space, there's no shortage of excellent courses to test even the most dedicated golfer. Many golf hotels are situated close to some of the best courses and greens in the county, such as the Southampton Golf Club, the Paulstons Golf Club and the East Horton Golf Club. The Potters Heron hotel is close to Romsey Golf Club, which is enduringly popular and endlessly challenging. At 5,718 yards, it's not particularly lengthy as a course, but the fairways are a constant source of joy (and frustration!) for golfers of all abilities.
Golf On Your Doorstep
While it can be enjoyable to drive to a new green and get into the swing of things, it can be equally rewarding to have a course, literally, on your doorstep. The Meon Valley Marriott Hotel & Country Club boasts its own, 27-hole golf-course with plenty of challenges, in the form of large bunkers, fairways lined with trees and the inevitable water-hazards. The hotel itself even has its own spa so, if the day's tournament has proven a little taxing, there's ample opportunity to deal with your strains and sprains, in supremely serene surroundings.
Dine in Style
After a hard day on the fairway, the last thing you want to do is wander around an unfamiliar town, looking for somewhere to eat. Many golf hotels, such as the immaculate Tylney Hall Hotel and the Best Western Chilworth Manor Hotel, have their own restaurants in which to unwind and enjoy a restorative meal and a relaxing drink.
Golf is more than just a sport; for many it's a true passion. If you've really been bitten by the bug, booking into a gold hotel in Hampshire is the best way to stay ahead of the game.
