One of the great things about golf is that it is a sport you can play anywhere around the world. It doesn’t matter what country you’re visiting in Europe, you’re never too far away from a relaxing 18 holes at some of the continent’s premium golf venues with Rocco Forte Hotels. Here are a few suggestions.
A visit to London, using Brown’s Hotel as your base, offers golfers the opportunity to take a journey back in time and embrace the game’s historic past. A round at the likes of St George’s Hill and Sunningdale will live long in the memory. Alternatively, why not venture a bit further afield to discover the three ‘Ws’ in the heart of Surrey’s golfbelt – Woking, West Hill and Worplesdon.
Munich may be the venue of Oktoberfest, but it is also home to a plethora of excellent golf courses. Heading the list of recommended clubs is Eichenried – a regular venue on the DP World Tour and probably Germany’s best-known course – Olching and Gut Hausern and Golf Valley, with The Charles Hotel the ideal base to experience the finest Bavarian hospitality and world-class golf in equal measure.
The Belgian capital is often overlooked as a golfing destination, but Brussels and its surrounding area boasts an array of high-class courses that will test your full range of golf skills. Book a stay at Hotel Amigo and take advantage of the chance to play the likes of the Old Course at the Royal Golf Club of Belgium (known as Ravenstein), Royal Waterloo or Hulencourt (Le Vallon), which was built on historic grounds dating back to 930AD.
A visit to Scotland’s capital provides the unmissable opportunity to explore golf’s ancient roots and some of the game’s most famous venues. The likes of North Berwick, Gullane and Musselburgh Links – the oldest golf club in the world – all sit on Edinburgh’s doorstep, while St Andrews, the Home of Golf, is also just over an hour’s drive away from the iconic Balmoral hotel.
