Marriott Dalmahoy

Marriott Dalmahoy located in the beautiful setting of Kirknewton, a small village in West Lothian and only 35 minutes from Edinburgh International Airport.

In fact, the 2nd ever Solheim Cup took place at Dalmahoy in 1992 where team Europe beat team USA by 11 ½ points to 6 ½ winning the Solheim Cup for the first time.


The East Course is regarded as the more challenging of the two, opening in 1927 and designed by renowned golf course architect James Braid, who has designed courses including The Kings and Queens Courses at Gleneagles and also the 1926 remodelling of Carnoustie Links.

The West Course is shorter in length, but still offers a good test of golf. There are some narrow fairways and small greens, so accuracy is key off the tee and in your approach shots to the greens.

11 minutes to Edinburgh Airport

Marriott Hollins Hall

Marriott Hollins Hall located in West Yorkshire not far from both Leeds and Bradford. The fantastic par 71 18 hole golf course at Hollins Hall is an established tournament venue having hosted Europro events from 2001 to 2003.

Hollins Hall

The course has a strong reputation for extremely smooth greens as well as being an all season course, good to know if you are planning an autumn or winter golfing break. Course management is key to taking on this course, undulating fairways, water hazards and large bunkers are what you will be up against. Make sure you plan each shot carefully keeping the ball in play or you may well be playing shots you didn’t think were possible. There are some excellent practise facilities at Hollins Hall including chipping and putting greens and a driving range.

The course has played host to several Euro pro and Challenge Tour events defining itself as an established tournament venue.

Worsley Park

The course is built throughout 8 lakes, which do come in play during the round, so make sure that accuracy is key and you play strategically. The course offers several risk or reward dilemmas, for example the 4th and 17th holes are both very driveable, which could lead to having a eagle putt, but with a drive slightly off line, you could be staring a big number.

The golf course its self is a very good, tough test. The front nine give fantastic views of some of Hertfordshire’s rolling landscapes and farm land. The front nine is the more peaceful of the nines, this is due to the back nine being close to the A10 dual carriage way.  The back nine has more of a parkland feel to it with holes being a bit more tree lined, and several holes played a bit trickier due to water hazards.
