Day 1 (Sunday)- Arrive, London Heathrow Airport

Meet & greet at Heathrow Airport. 25 minute transfer to Oatlands Park Hotel which will be your base for the whole week.

Day 2 (Monday) - Walton Heath (Old)

The Old course at Walton Heath is a world class heathland course set in the tranquil Surrey countryside, often ranking in the top 100 courses worldwide. The club is a US open final qualifying venue and has hosted an array of professional and amateur events including the Ryder Cup in 1981 and the 2018 British Masters.

Day 3 (Tuesday)- Hankley Common

A heathland course with the wow factor. The course is of a modest length but you’ll find fairways and greens cut from seas of heather, the most punishing yet most stunning of all natural hazards. The course is a sight of scientific interest and has hosted a wealth of championships with it being one of the best courses in England. Within a few miles of Hankley there are lots of lovely country pubs, we recommend stopping at a couple on your way back to the hotel.

Day 4 (Wednesday)- Sunningdale (Old & New)
There aren’t many places in the world you have the opportunity to play two world top100 courses in the same day. Sunningdale is classy but unpretentious, it is truly a golfers paradise. The club recently held The Senior Open and has hosted many significant amateur and professional tournaments over the years.
Day 5 (Thursday) - St Georges Hill
Considered by many as Harry Colt’s finest work, the 3 nine hole loops at St Georges Hill will take your breath away. Colt utilised the natural lay of the land to create dramatic holes with great changes in elevation, requiring a refined strategy to navigate around without finding yourself in the heather that lines the fairways. The clubhouse is an architectural masterpiece and the panoramic views of the course from the clubhouse are just as beautiful. Prepare to be amazed.
Day 6 (Friday)- The Berkshire, Red
The Red course at the Berkshire has a unique layout of 6 par 5’s, 6 par 3’s and 6 par 4’s which everyone who’s ever played here agrees is an extremely fun layout. The course blends wonderfully into its surroundings which is heathland with spectacular pine trees. If you have the energy for 36 holes today the Blue course is right up there with the Red course, you wont be disappointed. Alternatively, after your morning round its a short drive to the historic town of Windsor where you can take a tour of Windsor Castle and get a beer in one of its ancient pubs.
Day 7 (Saturday)- London sightseeing
You have so many options in London, it really depends on your interests. We can provide tickets to Premier league football matches, organise trips to the theatre, guided tours of Buckingham Palace, shopping at Harrods, countless museums and galleries. The worlds your oyster in London, you might want to stay for more than just a day.
Day 8 (Sunday)- Depart
Depending on the time of your flight you could squeeze in an extra game of golf. Or why not fly from London Heathrow to Scotland or Ireland (1 hour) to continue your golf trip?


This is just an example itinerary; we do not sell “off the shelf” packages. All of the golf trips we plan for our customers are bespoke, and so are the prices. Price depends on the dates you travel, party size, hotel rooms, transport choices, itinerary complexity and so on.

It’s no secret that booking through a tour operator like ourselves is more expensive than booking the golf trip by yourself . We’ve added links to all hotels and golf courses in the “at a glance” section if this is what you’re looking to do.

If however you’d rather leave the admin of 20 or 30 separate bookings to the experts and receive round the clock support and advice from a passionate, local golfer, then look no further. We’re confident in the level of service we provide to every customer and are proud to offer fair prices when compared to our competitors.
