Golf in England
In England you will find a wide variety of golf courses, from challenging links courses to picturesque park golf courses. Golf has quite a long history in England. According to Blackheath Golf Club it was formally instituted in 1608, but Royal North Devon was formed in 1864 and remains the oldest course in England still playing along its original fairways. Several famous English golf clubs are Royal St. Georges, Royal Birkdale, Sunningdale, Swinley Forest, Woodhall Spa and Woburn. But England has over 1,800 golf courses to choose from, most of them are really worth a visit! Some hotspots in England for a golftrip are the coast of Kent, the coast running from Blackpool to Liverpool, the area south west of London (Ascot and Woking), the Cornwall coast and the area near Bournemouth and Poole. From its legendary landmarks and bustling cities to its rolling emerald hills, England is an unmissable country of contrasts. London is a must when visiting England, but if you love art make sure to visit Liverpool’s dynamic art scene. If you are more into nature, then Cornwall’s sun-drenched beaches, Kent's fruit-growing orchards or the mysterious Stonehenge are definitely worth a visit. Getting to England is not a real problem. London has six major airports: London City, London Gatwick, London Heathrow, London Luton, London Stansted and London Southend. Other large airports in England are Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Newcastle. And since 1994 you can also travel to England via the Channel Tunnel.
