Four-ball at Atlantic Links
A fourball over one of the Atlantic Links courses of your choice. The Atlantic Links is a tantalising trail of six championship links courses in south west England set against the dramatic backdrop of the north Atlantic Ocean. Recognised as one of the premier golf destinations in the UK, the Atlantic links is comprised of Somerset’s Burnahm & Berrow, Royal North Devon and Saunton (two courses) in Devon and Cornwall’s St Enodoc and Trevose golf courses. Given the quality of the courses, the green fees represent excellent value for money whilst the region has much to offer in terms of outdoor activities such as surfing and trekking, quaint little fishing villages and gardens, historical buildings and cultural attractions.
Four-ball at The Mere
Unrivalled and up to all, our James Braid designed golf course is undoubtedly one of the best prepared and well-conditioned golf courses in the North of England. The 18 hole, 6,882 -yard, par-71 course was created out of 150 acres of Cheshire parkland in 1934. The surrounding mature trees, rhododendron bushes and the lakeside setting add considerable charm, and provide challenging hazards on this Cheshire golf course. Water, ravines and thick vegetation have been incorporated into the layout so that care and accuracy are demanded both off the tees and on the greens.
To prepare for the challenges of The Mere’s golf course, we offer players a complete floating golf ball driving range, two-tier pitching green, putting green and bunker practice area where players can warm up before a round.

Home of the 2014 Volvo World Match Play Championship and having hosted both Regional Open Qualifying and European Tour Qualifying School, this course proves a tough test for the most talented of golfers while providing the opportunity to shoot some great scores with a number of risk-reward holes.
Leveraging the latest in golf technology, the SkyCaddie LINX GT Watch differentiates SkyCaddie from the GPS watch competition, the golf game-tracker competition, and the golf app competition, combining all three into one harmonious, ‘best of everything’ solution.
Two-ball at North Foreland
Founded in 1903, North Foreland’s elevated location above Kent’s white cliffs ensures stunning panoramas from every hole whilst its broad fairways disguise a challenging layout where numerous strategically-placed bunkers lie in wait.

TALON digital golf training aid
Worth £225, the TALON is the first device of its kind to enable golfers to view their stance and adjust to the best position in real-time, improving muscle memory, consistency and performance.
