Golf provides the ideal opportunity for you and your family to enjoy quality outdoor time in beautiful surroundings while making the most of the away points in your membership. It can be tricky getting a round of golf in while you are on holiday with the family. Finding the balance of picnics, bike rides, relaxation time and golf can be difficult. To try and make things easier for you we’ve selected five family-friendly days out based around 5 of our clubs so you can enjoy days out together. Of course, if your kids are that little bit older you can book them on as juniors through your points.
