A weekend away at a top resort is a great way to spend some quality time together and then there is always the draw of top class golf courses, 5* luxury, lavish spas and the finest restaurants which all come together to create the perfect weekend away.
A couples golf holiday is also ideal for that special time of the year as Valentine's Day creeps up, so why not take a look at some "his and her" weekend golf breaks and holidays we have on offer.
Below are the top 10 romantic golf breaks from our Golf Travel Experts.
There are few places that can rival Gleneagles when it comes to sheer drama. Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Perthshire, the location couldn’t be any more idyllic. Throw three top class golf courses and possibly the most luxurious hotel in the UK, which boasts award winning restaurants and a lavish spa, into the bargain and you have the perfect recipe for a romantic weekend away.
Although a round of golf on any of the three courses at Gleneagles is sure to thrill even the most demanding golfer we would go for the Queen’s which is the shortest and most picturesque of the three. Following a round of golf why not spend the afternoon enjoying some peace and quiet together at the spa before the evening’s festivities.
For a really special meal head to Andrew Farlie @ Gleneagles which is the only restaurant in Scotland to have been awarded a second Michelin Star. The eight course tasting menu here is to die for and while it is a bit on the pricey side it is worth it for a memorable and romantic gastronomic experience.
In addition to golf and the sheer class of the hotel at Gleneagles there are a whole host of country pursuits that can be enjoyed by couples. Why not try your hand at horse riding, shooting, fly-fishing, falconry or mountain biking?
