Play 2 European Masters Courses in the Alps
The Alps might be best known as a winter sports playground but come the summer months the mountain range reveals some truly extraordinary golf courses. Nowhere more so than the long-time home of the European Masters, Golf Club Crans-sur-Sierre. Sitting on a lush mountain plateau, the Alpine setting at Crans-sur-Sierre has rightly earned the Swiss resort a reputation as one of the most beautiful golf courses on the planet. The snow-clad Alps and exquisite design by Severiano Ballesteros also ensures Crans-sur-Sierre is one of the most popular stops on the European Tour.
Across the border in France, the current home of the fifth major on the LPGA calendar, the Evian Resort, is also guaranteed to wow visitors. Situated on the lapping shores of Lake Geneva, the Evian Resort is an elegant essay in luxury. Winding its way through mature woodland, the course offers unrivalled viewpoints of Lake Geneva and the Alpine summit feature throughout.
Meanwhile with two luxury hotels at the resort, the 5-star Palace Hôtel Royal and 4-star Hôtel Ermitage, a Michelin-star restaurant and a selection of spas few golfers ever go away disappointed.
Located just 90 minutes from each other, there’s no reason not to enjoy both resorts in one epic golf adventure.
Lofoten Golf Links, the ultimate experience in the North
Lofoton Links, in Norway, situated just 90 miles from the Arctic Circle, is a truly extraordinary golf resort. Home to a spectacular 18-hole links course, the resort is one of the only places on the planet where you can play golf in the day before sitting back to watch the Northern lights at night. Even better, for three months of the year, the sun never sets on the historic Viking island of Lofoten. Meaning there is plenty of time to get your golf fix.
Residents can relax after their round in the resort’s stunning apartments. Located next to Hov Beach, around 1km from the course itself, the apartments have clear views to the north and the open sea. As a result, guests have a ringside seat for the world’s most famous light show.
The Island itself is equally unique and is famed for its dramatic mountainous scenery and array of birdlife.
Set between the Atlantic and the jagged Lofoten Mountains there are is also a selection of amazing opportunities off the course. These include the chance to ride Icelandic horses, try spectacular hikes or kayaking and, in winter, cross-country skiing.
London Gin Trail and Golf
Scotland and whiskey might be the Romeo to your Juliet. But have you ever considered heading south of the border to combine an unforgettable golf break with some of London’s finest gins? Britain’s most gin-soaked city, the English capital is home to a selection of fantastic gin distilleries. Visit London’s oldest distillery, Beefeater, or soak up the capital’s unique gin history at the City of London Distillery. You can also enjoy a tipple at one of the growing number of bars throughout the city which now specialize in spirits.
Of course, a trip to London is packed full of amazing experiences, and not just juniper-berry related. Within easy distance of London are the majestic courses that line the Berkshire/Surrey sandbelt. This beautiful area features some of the most famous venues in golf, namely Wentworth Club, Sunningdale and Walton Heath. The world-class links courses on the Kent coastline are also within easy reach of the city.
